The results from the weekend are now on the results section of the website.  Swimmers did very well with 26 PB’s on the night with some new times also, please make a note of these if your child has achieved a PB. 

Thank you very much to all those who helped out, I understand that all went well considering changes needed making as a swimmer could not make it last minute and some swimmers turned up late.  Please can I remind parents for future rounds that all swimmers need to be on poolside by 6pm ready for warm up.

Junior Swimmers of the Month - Feb 2017

Jack Baish - Jack has been awarded this month's award for his hard work and effort during his training sessions. He has recently progressed to our Stage 7 group and he has already moved up to the next lane. Jack will always try his best at training and is keen to improve his strokes. He listens to his coaches and will work hard whatever the set may be. It is great to see the progress that Jack is making with his strength & stamina and strokes & skills. Well done Jack

Keren Tennant - Keren is one of our Swimmers of the Month this month due to her positive attitude towards her swimming. She always trains hard and is often 1 of the leading swimmers in her lane. She puts in maximum effort to all the sets that she is given and listens to instructions and feedback from her coaches. She is also very competitive and will always put in 100% in the galas that she has recently taken part in. Keren is going from strength to strength with her swimming so keep up the good work!
