Sponsored Swim

Every year, the club holds a sponsored swim. This not only gives us a chance to raise money for the club and a local charity, but just as importantly it allows the swimmers to achieve something they can be proud of. They are always amazed at how far they can swim, as are the people who sponsor them.

All swimmers will receive a certificate and badge for the distance they have managed to cover. The coaches will be on hand to ensure everyone has a fun time and achieves their potential.

The money we raise will go towards a charity of the club’s choice.  This year’s charity, chosen by our members, is East Lothian Young Carers.

To download a copy of the sponsor form, simply click the link Sponsored Swim Form 2020:

Sponsored Swim Form 2020 v2

Some rules:

  1. Prior to starting distance swim – make sure you have been to the toilet, if you get out of the pool, you cannot get back in!
  2. Swimmers are not allowed to place their feet on the bottom of the pool during swim.
  3. Swimmers are not allowed to stop at either end of the pool for a rest.
  4. You can change stroke at any time.
  5. If you intend to swim a lot of lengths, (more than 50 lengths) you should be at the pool to start your sponsored swim during 1st or 2nd This will allow sufficient time for you to complete your sponsored swim in good time.
  6. You may swim on both days, however, only one of the swims will count.
  7. Parent volunteers will be needed to help count lengths and encourage the swimmers.
  8. All money and sponsor forms should be handed into the desk, or donated through the Justgiving page.
  9. Have fun!

It’s #volunteersweek and I couldn’t let it pass without saying a BIG THANK YOU to all our volunteers!

Did you know.......... everyone involved in running the club is a volunteer.

It takes 6 coaches, 3 lifeguards, 4 poolside helpers, 3 parent helpers, 2 junior coaches and 1 DOE to run each session.

Behind the scenes making sure it all runs smoothly is a committee of 10 people.

We collectively give 2,500 volunteers hours per year, not including back office stuff like writing session plans, planning and running events, dealing with emails, finances, risk assessments and shopping.

Wow.... I think this is fantastic and would like to say Thank You to every volunteer who makes our wee club a great place for the young people of Dunbar to have fun, improve their swim skills and make friends.

Hope you're all safe and well. We're missing seeing you at swim club and we hope it won't be too long before we can get back together again. In the meantime, we've got a challenge for you...

Let's see how many passes of the Dunbar Dolphins swim cap we can achieve as a club - with 124 of you out there we'd like to get as many of you involved as possible! There's a sunny weekend ahead which means plenty of opportunity to get outdoors and pass your swim cap in inventive ways.

We’ve attached a wee demo video to give you an idea of what we're looking for.

Please ensure you catch your cap from the left of your shot and throw it out to the right of your shot.

Suggestions for what to do when you catch your cap include swimming your favourite stroke, showing us a new lockdown skill you've learnt or just passing the cap around your family. We're sure you'll have many more creative and wonderful ideas!

Once you've captured your video send it to coach Sharon either via the Dunbar Dolphins Facebook page (@Dunbardolphinsnewshub),
by email (sharon.humble@btinternet.com)
or via Whatsapp (07891 020253).

Get your videos in by Monday 8th June to appear in the all-club video.

Let's see what you can do!

Best wishes from the Dunbar Dolphins
