Welcome to Dunstable Swimming Club

Dunstable Swimming Club aims to promote the sport of swimming by providing a training programme to help swimmers reach their full competitive potential according to their individual levels of ambition, ability and application.

The club caters for swimmers of all ages and abilities with a progressive coaching programme leading through our squad structure. Various levels of competition are catered for with training tailored to suit, from in-house galas and team league competitions, through to county, regional and ultimately national competition level.

DSC – Important Friday night training changes.

As promised we have been monitoring the usage during our Friday sessions at both Flitwick and Lealands pools.  As we are still encountering issues with our Lealands pool, we have made the decision to move all training on a Friday to Flitwick. The pool times are shown at the link. The key changes are as follows:

Development Squads: Friday Flitwick 7pm to 8pm
Transition Squads: Friday Flitwick 8pm to 9.15pm

The change will take effect from Friday 19th October 2018. We hope that this will be a beneficial change for our swimmers. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Tim Hutton or Paula Ellison directly.
