Dumfries ASC - #TEAM
Dumfries Amateur Swimming Club (DASC) was founded in 1964 and trained at Greensands, Dumfries from then until May 2008 when the prestigious DG One Leisure Complex opened and became the clubs’ new home.
Due to unforseen circumstances, DG One is currently under reconstruction and our club has been relocated to a pop up pool next to the Ice Bowl. DG One at the Ice Bowl is a 5 lane, 25m pool. Although this has been a challenging time for our club, we have proved that we can still achieve. Our club has been very successful over the past couple of years and we continue to go from strength to strength. DASC is a Dumfries and Galloway Accredited Club and we have achieved swimmark Plus. swiMark is Scottish Swimming’s quality aquatic development programme for clubs.
We are able to offer training of all levels of swimmer ranging in age from 8 to 65+.
Swimming is one of the most popular sports in the UK, and as well as being awesome fun, it’s also a great way to make new friends, get fit and learn exciting new skills.
There are 5 levels of age group squad providing age and ability appropriate training. This includes a club training squad for secondary age school children who still wish to train for fitness but due to other school or sporting commitments cannot meet the criteria for other squads. The club also has a Masters squad, for the over 18's, who train several times a week. Some of their members compete across Scotland and beyond whilst others enjoy the focused training and social aspect of the squad.
Our top swimmers compete through out the country at age group level having competed at British Age Groups, Welsh Nationals, Irish Nationals and Scottish Nationals collecting many medals along the way for their efforts. Other team members compete at all levels from mini-league to highly competitive meets with strict entry times.
A supportive team atmosphere is encouraged throughout the training and competition process which has enhanced the success of the team as a whole.
