National Centre (Dublin) are delighted to announce the creation of a Trainability Squad for part time National Centre (Dublin) athletes, positioned for competitive swimmers aged 11-16 years (age as of 31/12/19) who were NOT selected to be a member of the National Squad or Regional Squad Programme extant at the time of application. Regional Skills Academy athletes are welcome to attend however. Such athletes would normally require one or more of the following:

  • Additional training/coaching to that offered within their home club programme to support such athletes to achieve further in the sport
  • Long course training/coaching to accentuate that offered in their home club programme
  • An opportunity to train alongside like-minded athletes from a variety of clubs from across three of the nation's Regions
  • An opportunity to train in a session led by a member of the National Centre (Dublin) coaching staff


Long course (50m pool) sessions are offered each week as follows at the National Aquatic Centre:

Sunday               1600 – 1800         LCM


Please note that for the period 27th January 2019 - 7th July 2019, due to existing competition bookings in the NAC, 14 weeks of training are available to such athletes. The dates and prices for this will be given to those who express an interest as below

This Squad is now full. If you wish to add an athlete to the waiting list, please contact Niamh
