Happy New Year!
Phew! now the chaos of Christmas and new year is behind us, we can focus on a very exciting couple of months. We have the County long distance and age group relays happening over the next 2 weekends. Congratulations to all the swimmers involved, its a real honour to swim for the club or to be eligible to swim with the fastest swimmers in the county, so WELL DONE!
All those swimmers who represent the club at the County Championships will be presented with a Silver Counties 2015 swimming hat by Kim Weetman, our head coach.
We are still waiting for confirmation from the organisers regarding the individual swims at the County Championships in February, I will update you all as soon as we hear.
A polite reminder, all swimmers must have POOLSIDE SHOES (Ideally flip flops or crocs) and a POOLSIDE SHIRT (Rachel Pearson still has some in stock if you wish to buy a new one) at the counties. All those swimmer without shoes and a shirt will be refused entry into the waiting area. Please ensure that you have everything you need, spare goggles, towel, spare hat etc.
At the Christmas Party, the medals from the Club Championships were awarded to all swimmers who participated, if you missed the party, dont worry we have all the uncollected medals, they will catch up with you over the coming weeks. The Male and Female swimmers who won the most points at the club championships were this year awarded to Tag Curwen and Rebecca Hoadley. This year Kim also nominated 2 swimmers to act as club captains, so congratulations to Megan Stockford and Aaron Lamb.
