About Us

  • Dunbar Amateur Swimming Club has been running since the earlier part of last century.
  • From the cold beginnings in Dunbar Outdoor Pool, DASC now swim in the warmth of Dunbar Leisure Pool. We have approximately 130 members and have regular intakes for new members.
  • The aims of DASC are to coach and promote swimming in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to children aged between 6 & 18. We occasionally run intra-club competitions and compete on a friendly basis with other local swimming clubs.
  • We offer fun swims, life saving and water polo as light relief from training.
  • Our coaching staff, lifeguards and committee are all unpaid volunteers who give up their own time to ensure the club runs smoothly.
  • We are not affiliated to the Scottish Amateur Swimming Association (SASA) and do not take part in any major competitions.  If you would like to swim with a competitive swimming club, the nearest one is in Haddington (http://www.swimhaddington.co.uk/).

As a parent or guardian you play a pivotal role in encouraging and supporting your child’s participation, success and fun in sport.

When we spoke to our swimmers one of the ideas was to share their swimming club and coaching experience with you.

We would like to offer you the chance to get in the pool and participate in a swim session with your child.

By doing this you will.......
• Benefit from the expert tuition of our swim coaches
• improve your swim skills and technique
• get the inside scoop on what happens during a club session
• have fun

We are running 4 sessions for parents of swimmers from session 1 & 2 starting from Monday 25th Feb.

So............. if you would like to improve your swim skills and have fun, then check your in-box as we have sent you all the details you need on how to sign up.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in the pool. 🏊‍♀️🏊‍♂️🏊‍♀️🏊‍♂️🏊‍♀️🏊‍♂️
