National Centre Limerick Skills Clinics

The National Centre (Limerick) would like to offer athletes the opportunity to take part in skills and stroke clinics at the University of Limerick Sports Arena.  The NCL athletes and coaches will lead the clinics, which will be held whilst the pool in long course format.

The clinics will be available for any athlete that qualified for any of the Summer Meets in 2023 and it must be noted that the places will be filled on a first come first served basis.


Registration is completed through the athlete’s profile and not the parent’s profile. All club members have a profile – their username should be their Swim Ireland membership number.

Please note that on the Adult only clinic it will ask for additional details like in the young people ones – we have tried to remove these but it isn’t working. Could participants please just put in their own details here

All clinics are €50 per person

Any queries please contact

Please note that as the clinics are set up as a series, the booking confirmation may initially show the incorrect time/date; but the details of the correct clinic should be further in the email
