Our team of 12 are all NAC bound to compete in this 5 day national event which marks the culmination of one training season but also the beginning of the next!

We wish all the best to Eoin Bergin,Cian Foley, Jack Nolan Whitney, Stuart Vaughan, Evan Bailey,Jack Coode, Derbhille Cruise, Caoimhe Daly, Min Allen, Sadhbh Bailey, Abi Cullen and Ruth Kelly.

This band of 12 have trained hard and listened (we hope) to plenty of expert advise offered over the year.  Head coach Fran Ronan has completed her comprehensive training programme and now it is up to each individual to put her mentoring to good use.

Thanks to all the coaching staff who have helped Fran along the way along with Niall Devereux (landwork) the committee members, sponsors, The Apex, and parents.

An extra special word of thanks must go to our two neighbouring clubs and their coaches;  Eddie Downey and Waterford Crystal Swimmming Club, Kevin Wilmott and The Splashworld Sharks.  Both came to our rescue when the Apex closed a week to go before competition.  Your unhesitant offer of assistance is greatly appreciated and we also thank your swimmers for sharing their pool space with us as well as the parents of  your swimmers for accommodating us.  Thanks To the staff and Management of The Crystal Leisure Centre and Newtown Pool.  We wish both Waterford teams every sucess at the championships!
