An exciting Vale Cup team event saw us competing against 3 strong clubs, City of Oxford, Swindon Dolphins and Abingdon. We took a team of 34 and competed in the 49 events producing 36 PBs. An outstanding effort from those that swam. Big thanks must go to Kath and Louise the TMs and Rosie for coaching all swimmers in the start area.
This month saw John, Heidi and Debbie, three of our coaches attending a development day; hopefully they picked up some good tips as you will see in the shortly.
I have introduced a new award to run alongside Swimmer of the Month but for Senior over 14 year of age swimmers. So we now have a Senior and Junior trophy to aim for, presented monthly and chosen by the coaching team.
For June 2015
Senior Swimmer of the Month Laura Tolley
Junior Swimmer of the Month William Huddlestone
It was really good to see the most improved Girl go to Maddie Ratcliff and most improved boy go to Cormac Gallagher, both well-deserved and both moving up into the competition squad next term.
Rebecca Hoadley took the Ladies Luke Jeffery 50m Freestyle Cup for the 4th time and with a new record time of 28.38 whilst Sam Morton took the Boys Luke Jeffery 50m Freestyle Cup for the 2nd time also with a new record time of 26.80.
The Summer holiday start soon, don’t let all that hard work of this season disappear as you lay on the beach in far away countries. Use the hotel pool, and when back home train in the 3 session a week at Chippy and Sibford.
Have a great holidays.
