  • Summer Break

    The last session for all squads before our summer break will be on Friday 29th July. All training will return to normal from Monday 15th August.

    This break coincides with the ASA and home nations National Championships and will give our swimmers, players, coaches and volunteers a well deserved break. Good luck to Oliver Smith and Daniel Morley who are racing in Sheffield.

  • Junior League 2016 Update

    In 2016 a band of warriors from DCASC took on the gargantuan task of dispatching fellow athletes form other local clubs. A contest was held and that contest was called the Junior League. A myth to some; the pinnacle of a years worth of hard training, planning and focus to others.

    In the beginning there was a friendly. Fresh from the training pool DCASC took to the poolside of their very own Freemans Quay. The coaches tense, the swimmers ready and raring to go.

    The Friendly - Freemans Quay
    1st – Durham City Black (232 Points)
    2nd – South Tyneside (213 Points)
    3rd – North Tyneside (169 Points)
    4th – Tynedale (154 Points)
    5th – Derwentside (144 Points)
    6th – Durham City Red (41 Points)

    Coming away from the very first gala, even though a friendly one leaves us with a lovely taste for success but naturally somethings to look at. Back to the drawing board.
