EFDSC is a non-profit swimming club, that exists to provide young people with the opportunity to achieve their potential in competitive swimming. It is run by a Club Management Committee, which is made up of parents for the sole benefit of the swimmers. The first training session took place back in 1977!

Whilst much attention is focussed on helping swimmers achieve success at County, Regional and National Competitions, we also hold Club Championships, Charity Galas and other social events. Our Christmas Relay Gala in support of Cancer Research is a well established favourite!
