Congratulations to our club's newly appointed Club Captains for 2018/19.
Owen McBurnie and Gemma McLeod both currently swim in the club's National Squad and are looking forward to taking on their new role.
A quick word from Gemma and Owen
'We are excited, as the new club captains, to take on this important role for the next year.
We look forward to interacting with the younger swimmers, as well as our peers, in a number of ways such as attending competitions (for example, Teaspoons, which we are both already excited about!), helping out at training sessions and organising *time trials*.
As club captains, we hope to bring new ideas to the club, and also take on board the ideas of other swimmers within the club.
We have been swimming for 8 and 10 years respectively with Dumfries ASC, and both of us feel that the club, through it’s coaches and members have done so much for us, and that this is an opportunity for us to give something back in any way we can.
Whether swimming competitively or just for fun, the squads at Dumfries ASC are all rapidly improving, and we hope to help this continue in the coming year.
We’d like to thank Anthony for giving us this opportunity as club captains and we are eager to take on the year ahead! #TEAM'
