News Update 2017...
There have been lots of changes in our club since last summer 2017, of course there was our usual Harrogate gala we attended in November, and although most of our swimmers were first time competitors they did extremely well, we were more than pleased with the medal total and personal best results.
Soon after this some of our athletes took part in a table cricket tournament being played even though it was the first competition they had take part in, we are so proud of them well done all.
Following in the wake of this was our Christmas party again a very pleasant afternoon spent dancing and eating with yet more new members and coaches joining us this time.
2018 and even more changes...
Since we now have a more qualified coaches, teachers and pool side support we have been able to reorganise our swimming lessons. Still making available the one to one lessons for total beginners we also have been able
to open an intermediate class for those able to swim but not quite up to squad level. And of course our squad coaching sessions. These give everyone more time and space in the pool and the benefits of this can be seen
every Saturday with steady improvements from all our swimmers.
We are very fortunate to have the coaches we have and it makes such a difference to our
swimmers. Again the results were shown in our own gala which was held on 25th March 2018
with visitors coming from all areas.
Then to round it all off we now have a new secretary. Mr Tom Jeffrey has taken over from
Kath as I have now retired. I am confident he will do a grand job and always have our
athletes best interests at heart.
On a sadder note while this has been re-organised it has been disappointing that fewer athletes have been using the sports hall. While we have only one coach in the sports hall we really need more help (parents). But plans are in place to adopt other sports which should encourage more athletes to attend on a regular basis.
A session practicing archery is being organised. Anyone interested just ask Andrea or Emma they will be able to help.
