Please note that at the session on Sat 5 Dec there will be time trials over 25m and 50m for any DASC swimmers age 10&under. All who are that age are encouraged to attend. We need to collect data on swimmers' times in order to help with planning for Diddy League 2016. We will be looking for some parents willing to help with [manual] timekeeping on the day. You don't need to be qualified or experienced to help with this.

Darlington Dander Meet Results
Thank you to all DASC volunteers and officials who helped out in any way at the Darlington Dander Meet at Billingham Forum. The gala ran very smoothly and there was some great swimming. This would not have happened without a great team effort from all of you.
In particular a BIG THANK YOU to Carol Bottomley, the gala organiser, who put in a huge amount of hard work to ensure that it went ahead.
