December 19, 2018


So far this season 23 swimmers from Dumfries ASC  have qualified to compete at  West District Events .The West District of Scottish swimming covers an area from Oban to Stranraer and Islay to Bo’ness representing approx.50 affiliated clubs. This is the stepping stone to National Events.


 The youngsters travelled  to Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow on 3 separate occasions for The Sprints and Relays and both Junior and Senior age group events. The team qualified for a staggering 54 finals amassing a whopping 38 medals between them across each championships: 17 Gold,12 Silver and 9 Bronze.


Not only that but our talented athletes  broke two West District Records: Cameron Gordon 13 years 50 fly in a time of 27.58 and the 13-15 girls 4 x 50 free  relay Team comprising of Ava Simpson, Aimmee Harkness, Niamh Green and Lauren Anderson in a time of 1.54.06.incredible, well done! 


Coaches and Team managers were impressed with behaviour, attitude and camaraderie amongst the swimmers. They were a credit to the club. Thanks goes  to all volunteers who supported the youngsters at these events.




Congratulations  goes to one of our top volunteers Mr Peter McBurnie for being appointed Vice President of SASA West District  along with scooping the top technical Official award at the recent Dumfries and Galloway Sports Awards .


Not forgetting our very own coach Ailsa Nelson who was recently awarded the McMurdo Award for Services to Local sport. Very well deserved and huge congratulations from all of us at Dumfries ASC.
