Club Championships 2018
Thank you to everyone who attended to make this a great event.  Well done to the PINK team and the BLUE team for providing a fantastic sporting spectacle.
YDSC started off their annual Southern Junior League competition at Weymouth. This was a great success yesterday will all events being closely contested. 

There where many debuts at the Southern Junior League for our new YDSC swimmers. We had four eight year olds swimming making their Southern League club debut, Charlie and Jessica from Pre-skills and Ruby and Oscar from Skills as well as Hussey (junior) who was mixing it with his big brother Will in the relays. There was also two debuts for our two newly qualified Team Managers Karolina and Kat.

The experience those younger swimmers gained from this will go along way to helping them through the next round(s) of Southern Junior League as they continue their journey through YDSC into Open Meets in the future with the swimming club. 

There was some very impressive performances from all the swimmers. Unfortunately we finished fifth however that did not take away the team spirit that we had and it was a very enjoyable evening! As coaches and Team Managers, where those two and half hours went last night during the gala we don't know! 

We look forward to the next round of the Southern Junior..... Where ever it is!!! 

Special mention to Claire Filtness for helping with correspondence and helping getting our new younger swimmers registered in time.


Southern Junior League Dates

are now on the calendar!



We have recently needed to make changes to our swim programme affecting Oxley sessions on a Wednesday evening and Sunday morning. Whilst this means a slight reduction in Oxley pool time, there will be little effect on our overall programme and there will be additional time available to us at other venues from June.  I will revise and circulate the club timetable when those later changes become finalised.
However for the time being, please note the following changes which come into affect from the week commencing Monday 16th April:
Wednesdays (commencing Wednesday 18th): Performance Squad will no longer swim from 18:00-20:00.  Instead, there will be a dryland session from 18:00 to 19:00 followed by swimming from 19:00 to 20:00.
Sundays (commencing Sunday 22nd April): The Sunday programme will change from the current 3-sessions to 2, which overall will make more efficient use of the time.
The morning programme will now start at 09:30 (instead of 07:45) and finish at 11:30 (half an hour later than previously).  Squads will now swim the following sessions:
EXCEPT Sunday 1st June which is 9am programme start-
 - 09:30 to 10:30: Development 1 and Development 2
 - 10:30 to 11:30: Pre-skills and Skills.
