Hi Folks

Hope we are all OK, social distancing, washing hands and being careful 🙂

Confirmation that the following Open Meets have naturally been cancelled.

Doncaster Dartes – June.

Retford – June.


** UPDATE **

Doncaster Darts and Retford Open Meet Refunds

Over the next couple of weeks I am expecting to receive the refunds for these 2 Open Meets that were recently cancelled, will those of you who have swimmers that entered please look out for an email from myself, it will have details of the refund and a request for Bank Details so I can make the payment to you. Its also good to check your Junk mail as I know the last refunds I made 1or 2 were found there.
Thank you
I’ll be in touch as soon as possible

Hi, how are we coping with the lockdown and restrictions? – I hope all of you in the GDSC family are keeping well 🙂

Are you swimmers all keeping fit? Well if you need a little help, we’ve had a Core Training Workout sent through to us that Mark would like to look at and try!

Click on the link below and have a go …… please be careful but enjoy!

Core training

We now it is hard but please Stay home, Stay Safe.


I hope you are all keeping well, staying home and doing that school work!!

Our thoughts go out to anyone in our swimming family who have been affected by the unprecedented events and extend a Thank you to people in our community who, despite the personal risk, work in our shops to keep us fed, or are on the frontline in health care etc. working to contain the virus and treat those affected.

Send us pics of how you are keeping fit (including Mum & Dad!!) and we will post on FB and the website – hopefully 🙂

Take care during these challenging times for us all

Nigel & The GDSC Team


Following on from the COVID-19 Shutdown post I would just like to thank you for your understanding, support and very positive messages, especially those who have made it to swimming this week.

We are sadly now ‘closed’  🙁

None us know when we will be able to get back into the water but rest assured as soon as we can we will do 🙂

Lets hope actions such as ours and the recommendations of the Government and NHS etc. mean the impact of COVID-19 in the UK is limited and over sooner rather than later.

Please keep in touch via the website and FB

Stay safe and healthy

Nigel & The GDSC Family


Club Membership fees – those who pay by bank transfer methods will be contacted via email over the next week by Julie with details of what needs to be done by both parties.

Open Meet Fees – We will issue further information regarding return of payments etc. next week when we have more information from the various clubs and have looked at the best methods of making the payments.

Message from Mark – The Hull Easter Meet and the Regionals have been postponed at the moment and not cancelled as yet – as soon as we have more details we will publish on the website and FB page. As of yet we have not heard from Rotherham Metro regarding their April meet – again  updates will be on the website and FB when we know.



** Virus Update **
Based on Monday’s statement from the Prime Minister and information from Swim England, the club have taken the decision to close indefinitely with effect from Friday this week, 20th March.
The Club Champs at the weekend is regrettably cancelled and our attendance at all Galas, Open Meets etc will also be cancelled.
Sessions for tonight (Tuesday), Wednesday and Thursday will go ahead at the swimmers/parent’s discretion, there will be no club desk so these sessions will be ‘free’.
I am sure you all appreciate this is a very fluid and fast-moving situation and therefore these plans may change subject to Government and LC updates.
There will be further information on fees, payments for open meets etc. in the next few days
As a Management Team we have a duty of care not only to our swimmers and their families but our staff and their families and believe this positive action supports everyone going forward.
