Congratulations to all the swimmers who took part in this meet. Well done everyone.


A fantastic fun competition for the swimmers, Malcolm did us proud again in working out the teams.  Our DRP swimmers managed to get there just in the nick of time to compete too.  Each swimmer got to swim twice with the final 5 teams swimming for the trophies.  Well done to all who helped out!



We would all like to congratulate Peter Allan for winning the STO award (East District) 2017.  Swimming Technical Officials are a central part of every swimming event and play an important role in ensuring the events run smoothly, safely and within the sports regulations.  Well done Peter and thank you for all your hard work.


Its the Hearts Premier Age Group Meet tomorrow and Sunday warm ups are at 8.50 and 13.00 try to be there at least 10 minutes before,  so the coaches can complete their withdrawl sheets.

Also if anyone has any ideas for fundraising for the Club, please contact myself and I will pass on ideas to the committee.
