Westport Swimming Club
Westport Swimming Club was established to give local young swimmers the opportunity to achieve their potential in the sport of swimming.
The Club is run by professional coaches Barry Robinson and Peggy Dever, with the assistance of a committee of parents who work on a voluntary basis. The Club is based in Westport Leisure Park, and is affiliated to Swim Ireland the National Governing Body for Competitive Swimming in Ireland.
Although just a small team, Westport Swimming Club has enjoyed tremendous success over many years, at Regional, National, and International level. Westport has had Gold Medallists in The Irish Open National Championships, The Irish Age Group Championships (Division 1 & Division 2), The Irish Minor Schools, and The National Finals of the Community Games.
Every year the competitive swimming season runs from September to Summer, and in Westport the training year is broken into three separate terms from September to Christmas, Christmas to Easter and Easter to Summer.
New swimmers focus on acquiring swimming skills, and learning to train, with development coach Peggy Dever, and our more experienced swimmers who train several times per week, focus on training to train, and training to win, with lead coach Barry Robinson.
The weekly club timetable is detailed below:
Monday 16:30-18:30 (Barry & Peggy)
Wednesday 17:00-19:00 (Barry & Peggy)
Thursday 17:00-19:00 (Barry & Peggy)
