If you have lost track of e-mail information etc, please refer to our new club calendar page of our website. The first 5 entries will automatically show on the right hand side of each web page under UPCOMING EVENTS but if you visit the club calendar page all swimming related information on times of training sessions, any changes to normal training, competitions, closing dates etc should be updated for the month ahead...and further in some cases where we have arranged fundraisers etc

Nutrition / Recipes Wanted..
09 October 2014

We have added a nutrition/health page to the website which contains infromation received following a recent nutrition presentation that you may find of interest. Also included is information on iron depletion which can affect swimmers who are training intensively. A link to ant-doping rules is also contained on the new page fro your information.

Some nutritionally beneficial recipes for training & performance have been sourced following this presentation which we are hoping to pull together as a fundraiser but no recipe book would be complete without some treats, so please share with us your tried & tested family favourite recipes, of any kind, and we can include these to tempt some of the wider public to buy one of our books for club funds.


Club Championships..
09 October 2014

Here are a couple of dates for your diaries/calendars:

Our next internal competition, the Club Champs will be held over 2 Friday evenings on 21st November and 5th December in place of normal swim training. There won't be any land training on these dates to accommodate all age groups taking part. Further information on the club champs and details of how to enter will follow nearer the time but all swimmers are encouraged to compete in our internal competitions and cheer on their team mates.

Charging for land training

Each session will be charged at £3 per swimmer, and this will be on the basis that training is available, whether or not the swimmer is able to attend. If you do NOT want your child to take part in the land training programme please reply to the club, otherwise we will assume that your child wishes to take part and the land fees will be added to your monthly swimming bill. As there is a demand for land sessions non attendance or late arrival to more than 3 consecutive sessions without notification to the club may mean reallocation of a place.
