July 2016 Newsletter

A word from our Chair - Rachel

Congratulations to all those who swam at CMK last month - some fabulous results, numerous PBS and lots of medals! The gala calendar for Sep- Dec has been updated and can be viewed on the website so please do note these dates and watch out for emails detailing how to enter. 

Our fantastic 'Friends of 4SSC' Group opted to try something different for this year's Summer Party - with resounding success! Swimmers and parents alike have commented how much they enjoyed the party - thank you to Zoe and all the Friends for their enthusiasm and hard work!

We are already missing the Fernandez family who left us for America last week - thank you and good luck to you all, and in particular to Toby for being such a great Team Captain - keep in touch!

That just leaves me to wish you all a great summer break (and hopefully some sun too!) although I'm sure I'll see many of you at summer training sessions over the coming weeks.

Best wishes



Updates from our Head Coach … Kim

Only one Meet this month.
CMK saw 19 swimmers compete in 97 swims, producing 56 PBs and with quality competition 13 Medals.
Thanks to the 3 TMs and our band of trusty officials for helping out.

Last Wednesday saw the last of the trial Club Skills/Fun night, the numbers have dwindled and so we will decide if these will continue after the summer shortly.

With the holidays approaching, I hope all have opted for Summer session.
All the best of luck for those swimming for 4 Shires at Banbury this coming weekend, hope the weather holds.

We also said goodbye to the Fernandez family, who are off to the USA, I would like to give a big thank you them all our current Captain Toby along with Edward, Lizzy and Mum Louise. We hope to see you next summer.

Sunday Training Sessions

There are an increasing number of swimmers continually turning up to swim for the 7-8pm slot that have not attended the land training session preceding it.

Please note that this is a 2 hour training session and that the expectation is that swimmers attend BOTH the land training and the pool session (unless in extreme circumstances such as injury which should be discussed and agreed with Kim, John, Heidi or Rachel). There is a waiting list for this session. If your child is registered for this session but does not want to attend land training, please opt for another pool session instead. It is not fair to block spaces when there are others on the list keen to attend land training. Attendance will be closely monitored from September and swimmers continuing to ignore this plea will be asked to change to another pool only session, and their slots offered to another swimmer on the waiting list. Thank you.

Summer swimming sessions

Don't forget to book your summer training sessions. This term

ends on Sunday 17 July with the new term resuming Monday 5

September. We expect these to be very popular and spaces are

available on a first come, first served basis!

4SSC Friends Updates

In September we will be having a fun family bingo evening for everyone - more details to follow. 

On Saturday the 2nd of September we will be promoting the club at the Moreton Show. If you can spare a hour or two to come and help that would be very much appreciated. 

Chipping Norton Sainsbury's have also kindly contacted us and asked if we would like to bag pack on Sunday the 30th of Sept so another promotion opportunity. Any volunteers again would be great - a sheet with time slots on will be circulated nearer the time. 

A big thank you again for your continued support throughout the year. 

If you are interested in joining the 'Friends' of the 4SSC / or have any fundraising suggestions please get in touch - 

With thanks
