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/).

Another great night in the pool, working on our front crawl technique. Lots of progress being made. (when we were not admiring the sunset)

Our new junior coaches are working hard at demonstrating and sharing their skills.

Could we remind all session 3 swimmers who competed in the Try -Athlon to hand in any out standing sponsor money to the registration desk ASAP please.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us support The Wave Project through our sponsored events.

Great night in the pool with session 1 & 2 working hard on their aquatic breathing and stroke technique.

A big shout out to Scot and Jake who persevered with their turns.

You’ll never be bored when you try something new.......there’s really no limits to what you can do!!!

Keep those heads down! 😂😂

Week two of poolside treats courtesy of our amazing junior coach Rebecca. Another thumbs up from the poolside team.

Suzie says she’s taking up open water swimming so she can work off all this home baking!

Their requests are really putting Rebecca’s skills to the test. Next week it’s lemon drizzle cake.
