Dartmouth Swimming Club is launched


W


ith the gradual re-opening of sports facilities after lockdown there has never


been a better time to re-start one of Dartmouth’s best loved clubs. The first Dartmouth Swimming


Club was founded in the 1960’s and ran until the early years of this century. Back then the hardy souls used the facilities nature had provided and swam in the boat float and the river, with regular long-distance swims from Dartmouth Castle all the way to the Higher Ferry. Flo Bailey was the coach for over


40 years and still lives in town, as do former leader Joan and Alan Coker, and Lesley Hodge. Eventually they moved up to the


Britannia Naval College pool and continued there for many years until circumstances caused the club to lie dormant for nearly two decades. But now Dartmouth


Swimming Club is back! The opening of superb new facilities at Dartmouth Indoor Pool means our children don’t have to dodge ferries or battle tides. They will benefit from excellent coaching from Head Coach Mat Cusack, a qualified Senior Swim England Coach,


Level 2 Swimming Teacher and Level 2 Open Water Swim Coach. We are also supported by Ben Cusack, a Level 2 Swimming Teacher and Mags Bickley a level 2/Advanced teacher and Swim England tutor/ASA tutor. DSC is a place where children can


have fun, build confidence, hone fitness, and create lasting friendships.

The club are actively seeking children aged 7-16, ideally at stage 7 or above in Swim School/Swim England. We also hope to be in the position in the near future to start a Master’s session. We are extremely grateful to be


supported in this exciting new project by Fusion Lifestyle and the Dartmouth Indoor Pool Trust. The club is now seeking sponsors and donations in order to provide the children with vital equipment such as anti-wave ropes and club team kit. There is a live funding page if you would like to donate. The funds we raise will enable us to run summer clubs and swim clinics. As a non profit club, every penny we receive will be used to benefit the children of this generation and, hopefully, many generations to come. If you think you would like
