Membership of DSC is based on an annual subscription this includes: a levy paid to Swim Ireland for insurance, subsidise pool hire and swimming coaches, and support social events during the year. There are different types of membership to suit your needs.

Membership renewal for existing members takes place in August each year. This is when we renew our affiliation with Swim Ireland. If you need to renew your membership at a different time for the 2021-2022 session, send an email to the club’s secretary dublinswimmingclub@gmail.com
