About the Fundraiser

Trojan Swimming Club has been synonymous for producing outstanding Irish swimmers over the last five decades; many making senior and junior international & Olympic teams. This hugely successful athlete-centred, coach-led, performance program has weathered the ‘Covid storm’ by adapting its delivery for training and increasing learning opportunities for all our athletes.

This has enabled us to emerge stronger and more informed than ever before.

We are living in unprecedented times, where so many facets of society are negatively impacted by the current COVID environment. Trojan Swimming Club is NOT immune to these new and evolving challenges.

Reason for Fundraising

  • In 2020 pool availability is currently in short supply
  • Pool cost drives the majority of our club expenditure
  • The cost of pool hire has increased almost 50% since 2019
  • Our income (revenue and sponsorship) is constrained in 2020
  • The 2020-21 season shall be our most financially challenging to date

How Money Will Be Spent

  • Additional pool time and coaching for all squads
  • Focus on our development pathway for athletes
  • Maintaining a membership of almost 200 swimmers
  • Development of our 75 performance athletes
  • Retaining teenagers and young girls in sport
  • Professional training and coaching staff
  • Focus on our drive towards 2024 and 2028 Olympics

Huge Amount of Spot Prizes To Be Won During The Month for all the Participants!
