Squad List for Term Two 2021/22

As Bluefin continues to grow into the season, we are excited to announce squad moves for next term, starting Wednesday 5th January 2022.

Competitive swimming requires dedication, patience and lots of hard work. The frequency and duration of training is determined by the ability of the swimmer, which allows swimmers to develop at their own pace and amongst similarly skilled athletes.

New Training Schedule

Please note, from January Thursday evening training will not continue. This affects Competitive JNR, who move to Wednesday afternoons at 5:45pm; and Competitive SNR who move to Friday mornings 5:45am.

Squad Expectations

  • Arrive 10 minutes before sessions.
  • Be coachable – prepared to listen to the coach and work effectively to meet training targets.
  • Be respectful to the coaching staff, team mates and volunteers, both at training and competition.
  • Be available to represent the club at galas.
  • Have fun!

Basic kit requirements for all squads include two hats, two pairs of goggles, a pair of short fins, a snorkel and a drink bottle.

Club Registration 2020/21

We understand that many of you will be concerned following the announcement of new restrictions by the Irish Government last evening.  We have received reassurance from Swim Ireland, that we can continue club swimming – ensuring that we are strictly adhering to the public health measures that have already been issued.

This continues to be an evolving situation, and we will keep you informed as we receive updates.
