Livingston and District Dolphins Amateur Swimming Club (LDD) are a community swimming club, based in Livingston, for swimmers aged 3+. Our club consists of two distinct parts – Swim School and Development Section (including a competitive disability squad).

At LDD it is our aim to provide the swimming environment that enables all our swimmers to reach their full potential. We have clear criteria for progression through the squads and this ensures that as swimmers progress they are gaining the necessary skills to progress to the Swim West Lothian pathway.

In September 2014 we were delighted to win the award of ‘Club of the Year’ from the sports governing body Scottish Swimming. This award recognises the outstanding work to make the club stronger and sustainable in four categories: well organised, better connected, well promoted and sustainable, and a club that develops people.

In November 2014 we were awarded Level 3 (Development Level) of West Lothian Council’s Club Accreditation Scheme. We are to date the first and only swimming club to gain this level.

In July 2013 LDD were awarded swiMark plus accreditation by Scottish Swimming. We were the first swimming club in Scotland to have both its Learn to Swim Programme and Development Sections swiMark plus accredited. We are very proud of this achievement as it demonstrates that we are following the very best standards and practice in our swimming lessons and development structures.

The vision for LDD going forward is to continue to develop and improve so that we are a strong and competitive club. It is important that we achieve this within an enjoyable environment that allows all our swimmers, of all ages and abilities, to fulfil their potential in swimming.
