Coolmine Swimming Club operates out of Coolmine Sports Complex in Dublin 15 which first opened to the public in 1975. One of the first members of staff was Duty Manager Eddie Ince. Eddie started the swimming club in 1977 and the club has been in existence ever since.
Over the years Coolmine has been one of the leading competitive clubs in the country, bringing out the best in local swimmers and those from the surrounding areas in West Dublin and Meath. The club has over 130 members between the ages of 7 and 18+ and almost 100 of them are competitive members. There are 4 squads within the club – Sharks, Dolphins, Development and Elite. New members start their training at Sharks level (the minimum requirement is the ability to swim a length of the pool). Progression is based on individual performance, commitment and technique.
At present we have 9 coaches, most of whom are former swimmers with the club. The coaching staff is the backbone of the club, running the training sessions and attending various galas, encouraging all swimmers to take part to the best of their ability. All coaches have professional qualifications and deliver the very best of training to the swimming groups, tailored to their abilities. The aim of the club is to encourage children of all ages to achieve a high level of swimming in an enjoyable atmosphere, to help develop a team spirit and develop friendships that will last for many years.
Volunteers from among the parents of the swimmers run the club with involvement ranging from sitting on the Committee; parents pool/gym supervision duty, officials’ duties at galas and helping at various club events.
Coolmine SC has achieved major successes in competition, both nationally and internationally.
