The BASC Committee are very pleased to announce the appointment of Louise McBride as Head Coach of the Club.
We are over the moon that our first choice for this position has agreed to take on the role.
Also, we would like to thank Mark Skillen for his hard work and commitment to the Club over the last number of years as he has decided to step down from the Head Coach role.
Good luck to Louise and the rest of the Coaching / Teaching team for the incoming season.
Billy Moore – Ballymena Swimming Club 14.03.2018
It is with much sadness that we hear of the passing of Billy Moore who served both Ballymena Swimming Club and Swim Ulster for many years as both Coach and Tutor.
Billy was one of he founder members of Ballymena Swimming Club back in 1969 and went on to serve as Club Coach and Chairman. In the course of his lifetime in swimming he held the position of President of the Ulster Branch of the Irish Amateur Swimming Association and went on to become Irish President and later Honorary Secretary of the IASA
Billy had been unwell for some years but was occasionally seen in the gallery at the Seven Towers Leisure Centre on Club Night, always keen to follow the success of the club which he had helped to found and offer some helpful advice. He also liked to maintain an interest in the careers of former swimmers and was never happier than when they met and were able to reminisce about past trips and experiences.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Billy’s wife Elsie and family at this sad time.
The funeral service will be in Wellington Church Ballymena, on Friday 16th March 2018 at 2pm
