  • Scottish Downs Syndrome Swimming Competition

    Invitation to

    The Scottish Downs Syndrome Swimming Competition

    9th June 2018 2pm to 6pm

    Olympia Pool Dundee

    This will be the second National Swimming competition to be held in Scotland solely for swimmers with Downs Syndrome and we hope that swimmers from all over Scotland will be able to attend.  This event is aimed at grass roots involvement as well as competitive development.

    Having hosted a very successful British Competition in England for many years DSISO-GB are conscious that Scotland has many DS swimmers who have not yet had the opportunity to compete on a national or even international level.  It also adds an additional opportunity to swim in addition to the many disability galas already held on a local or regional basis.

    The aim of this competition however is to encourage swimmers of all capabilities to enter the sport at whatever level they are comfortable with.  For those who wish then there are pathways to further competition, for those who are new to the sport this is a chance to compete on an even playing field.

    We would encourage everyone who is interested to enter either individually or as a member of a club. 

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me on knm.buildbridges@btinternet.com if you have any queries or wish an entry pack.

    Our competitions are run with the aim of providing a competitive environment, but most of all we ensure that the events are enjoyable, with plenty of help and guidance for new participants.

    If you have attended local and regional disability galas then you will see many well known faces and of course have the chance to catch up.

    I look forward to seeing you at the competition.
