Swimming Club Cork

Dolphin Swimming Club (DSC) was founded in 1901. In 1902, to keep swimmers active during the winter months, Dolphin Rugby Football Club (DRFC) was founded, but both clubs operate separately presently.

Operating out of Mayfield Sports and Leisure complex the club is active for 30 hours per week in the water and 10 hours per week in the gym.  

There are 9 squads in the club, 7 of which train to compete.  The club is very proud of our representation at provincial national and international level.

We have a learn to swim programme that conducts three classes each weekend from September to June and, in most cases, feeds the participants into the competitive squads.

The Club is affiliated to Swim Ireland, the national governing body of all aquatic disciplines in Ireland.  Swim Ireland’s child protection programmes enable all adults and children in the club to be educated and aware of and comply to standards that lead to the safe and harmonious participation in our sport, or in being a volunteer assisting with the running of the club.

The club depends largely on volunteerism in the day to day running of the club on committees such as management, complaints and discipline, fundraising and in offices such as club children officers, designated persons, compliance, team managers and assistant teachers.

Our highly qualified, motivated and motivating coaching panel work with the swimmers to encourage and enable them to reach their individual potential in this very demanding but rewarding sport.  We are all, parents and children alike, working as a team, for the team.

"I love the mix of fun, discipline and exercise that Dolphin and their fantastic coaches offer. Best of all though the kids love it and they'd be up there every morning if they could"
