Welcome to DMU Swimming and Triathlon Club
The DMU Swim and Tri society is an exciting and sociable group that is about getting to meet new people whilst enjoying a passion for Swimming and/or Triathlons. As the name suggests we are split into two sports, the first is the swim team and the other is the triathlon team however, we encourage all teams and members to mix and have a go at everything! We hold training sessions for both throughout the week all year round.
All abilities are welcome!

We have previously competed in a range of different events, most importantly The BUCS Short course, BUCS Long course and BUCS team competitions!
Our biggest and best gala of the year however, is Varsity, held in 2nd term, where we compete agaisnt the University of Leicester sports teams. This year we hope to retake the girls varsity title whilst also bagging the boys and team titles!
We also partake in a number of Triathlons, which vary in distance. We train to ensure our competitors are well trained before hand and we often do very well!
Often our competitors have only recently taken to the sport, which goes to show you don't have to have done the sport beforehand to train and do well in a competition.
There are also many other events which we take part in such as various fundraising events, charity matches and much much more!!

Aside from weekly social events we also hold events such as annual Christmas meals, end of year meals and attend university awards nights such as the Sports Awards Night, where we took home the Community Club Of The Year 2019 - among many others!
