About East Kilbride Amateur Swimming Club
This page has been produced to provide some basic information about East Kilbride Amateur Swimming Club (E.K.A.S.C.) for new members and their parents.
The club was formed in 1969 and is an independent organisation with its own constitution; however the club does receive some support from South Lanarkshire Leisure (SLL) and East Kilbride Sports Council.
E.K.A.S.C. exists to promote the sport of competitive swimming and its structure is geared to that end. It is not in the business of teaching non-swimmers to swim but rather to improve the capabilities of those who can already swim to enable them better to compete and enjoy the sport.
The club is affiliated to the Scottish Amateur Swimming Association (S.A.S.A.), West District and East Kilbride Sports Council.
Facilities and Training Times
Due to the closure of the Dollan Aqua Centre until early 2010 training sessions are taking place at Blantyre Leisure Centre, Strathaven Leisure Centre and Hamilton College. Please see the training / times section for further information. www.ekasc.co.uk
The club has limited notice board space at training venues. All parents and swimmers should check the website on a regular basis as this will be the main form of communication.
