Viking SC wins Leinster Region Club of the Year 2017

Viking SC was last night awarded Leinster Region Club of the Year at the Swim Ireland Awards event. Congratulations to Jackie and her team of coaches, our swimmers and their parents and the management committee for this fantastic achievement. In the space of four years Viking SC has gone from being a barely viable club with 22 members to a thriving club with in excess of 130 swimmers. We have fantastic gala attendance and swim times. Most of all we have young swimmers who enjoy a fantastic sport, with excellent coaching and support. It is great to see Swim Ireland recognising the development of the club and the efforts of all involved. Many thanks to the swimmers, coaches, parents and management committee for making this award a reality.
