Lothian Schools Disability Swim Qualifier 2015

Tuesday 6th October 2015 – Dalkeith School Campus

The Lothian Schools Swim Qualifier attracted a record number of entries from a record number of schools – with 81 swimmers participating from a very encouraging 20 schools.  The swim gala acts as a qualifying event for the Scottish Disability Sport Championships for swimmers with a physical disability or sensory impairment (4th November) and also swimmers with a learning disability (18th November).  Times are recorded from the Regional event and a Lothian squad is then selected to represent the region at the National event, giving swimmers the opportunity to test themselves against individuals from other areas of the country.

Dalkeith Schools Campus provided the venue for the event and accommodated the gala superbly throughout the day and also during the lead up to the event, allowing all swimmers an enjoyable experience throughout.  Further Midlothian support was provided from the region’s Active Schools Team and senior pupils from both Dalkeith and St David’s HS, as Sarah Wright and the large group of young volunteers were on hand to guide swimmers over the course of the day.  Additional support from local officials enables the gala to run, without their experience, enthusiasm and significant contribution we would not be able to provide this opportunity for the young people.

Swimmers were well represented from all four local authorities with many mainstream schools engaging with the event which is very encouraging as we continue to strive to provide sporting opportunities for young people with a disability.  Swimmers attending for the first time are given chance to improve training times, gain confidence and build relationships with their peers while experienced swimmers are looking to qualify for the National Championships, renew rivalries with other swimmers and continue their development in the pool.  All swimmers are there to have an enjoyable experience and through this are keen to access further swimming opportunities across the region.
