Newpark Nemos Swimming Club is affiliated with Special Olympics Ireland.
Founded in June 2011 with 8 swimmers, it has evolved into a club of 29 Athletes, ranging in age from 9 to 26 years old, who train in Newpark Sports Centre on Newtownpark Avenue.
The club caters to swimmers of all abilities and offers 1-to-1 in-water coaching for members who need additional assistance.
The club is run by volunteers. Due to the dedication of our wonderful and passionate coaches our swimmers have won medals at league and National Special Olympics events but our philosophy is to ensure that members have fun, with training that is individually tailored to their needs and desires. Sometimes galas and competitions can be noisy and intimidating for some people and so participation in these is not compulsory. Self development, participation, encouragement and having fun is what we see as most important.
