Ben has always had great arm speed and is beginning to use that asset by mixing it with improved technique. He always works hard and is competitive in training. Over the last month he has challenged the top swimmers in the club. Ben continues to improve his times getting pb after pb. Ben, continue to believe, be committed and start focusing on much bigger goals.
Due to an event at Oundle School on Tuesday 30th May 2017, we are not able to use the Oundle facilities so the senior training session has been moved from Oundle to the Cornmarket, Main Hall.
We will be starting this training session earlier so the swimmers can get an earlier night.
Cornmarket 7pm to 8.30pm.
Please dress appropriately for land training, trainers: tshirt, shorts or joggers, no jeans.
Please bring with you your kick boards, a drink and a positive mental attitude.

Max always works hard, he commits to his training and over the last few months has slowed down his arms to concentrate on technique. This is a huge step in faith - resisting the temptation to go all out on arm speed/just spinning the wheels. His distance per stroke this month is reaching further and his times are getting lower. Very impressed with Max's pbs and performance at the galas, he just keeps improving and developing. Well done Max
Harriet is a great trainer, enthusiastic and determined, all important attributes for a successful swimmer. Harriet over the past few months has had some great pbs, especially in fly, and is steadily decreasing her times in all strokes. Harriet has been positive, focused and eager to learn, an inspiration to others in the lane. Keep up the good work Harriet.
