December 2015 Newsletter


ALL training sessions (both land training and pool) are cancelled on Sunday 13th December due to the large number of swimmers competing at Oxford. All swimmers affected by this change are welcome to attend any session of their choice that is open to their squad during the week before/after. Thank you for your understanding.

A word from …

I cant believe its December already! where has the year gone again!
Firstly, I want to thank the all committee members for all their hard work over the last 12 months, to ensure that everything within the club runs smoothly and provides a both a competitive swimming club and a social platform for all. Most importantly, I want to thank Rachel Pearson for continuing to step up and cover my Chair responsibilities whilst I have been away setting up my new business. Rachel you are an invaluable asset to the club, thank you.
Secondly, I would like to thank all of our coaches who go above and beyond their coaching commitments to ensure that competitive swimming is a positive experience for all, thank you. Finally, I would like to thank all the parents and the swimmers for their commitment to the club over the last year, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, and take up the opportunity to attend Christmas training sessions especially with the county championships just around the corner.
Merry Christmas
Kath :)


Updates from our Head Coach … Kim

NOV 2015 

The month we competed at three events.

We took 17 swimmers to CMK who produced 38 PBs. Swimmer of the meet has to be Maddie Good, who swims with W&DS and us. She recorded a first, 3 seconds and a third. Well done Maddie.

Both Rebecca Hoadley and Felicity Darwent swam at the SE Winter Regionals in Portsmouth. Rebecca recorded two PBs narrowly missing a third by 1/100s, whilst Fee missed a PB in 100 IM by 2/100s. Congratulations to both.

The second COSC Dev Meet had 21 swimmers competing and produced a further 36 PBs with 6 first time swims.


We have just started a joint venture with W&DSC, a tour to Tenerife in October 2016. With the prerequisite being County times it did limit the swimmers we can take.


See you December 14th.
