We are a friendly and competitive swimming club based just north of Cambridge, with about 100 swimmers aged between 8 and 21. We train at Bottisham and Impington Sports Centres, and compete at galas throughout the eastern region and beyond.

We look forward to seeing you this Spring term, however, if you are no longer planning on swimming with the club, please let us know ASAP to email@example.com as we currently have a waiting list.
The committee looks forward to seeing you all at the AGM and presentation evening, which will start promptly in the Big Room at Impington Sports Centre on Sunday 22 January at 6pm. Below you will find the reports from the Chair, Treasurer and Head Coach. Please read these before the AGM. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, both formally during the meeting and informally afterwards.

We will be asking for proposers and seconders for those standing for election to the committee posts. Please stick your hand up when we ask – it makes it much easier and quicker and doesn’t commit you to anything!
A reminder that the lower two lanes of B squad will swim 5-6pm and the upper two lanes will swim 7-8pm to enable all of the children to join us for the presentations. Refreshments will be available.
There are two galas currently available to enter through the club: Corby (long course – that is, a 50m, international-sized pool) on 25-26 March and Newmarket on 8-9 April. Click the links for more details. Closing date for Corby is THIS SUNDAY. Closing date for Newmarket is Sunday 12 February.
Please remember that presentations for swimmers will be taking place in the Big Room at Impington between 6-7pm on Sunday. It’s a celebration of all we’ve achieved in the last year, and we’d love to see as many of you there as possible. Swimming for C squad and lanes 3 & 4 of B squad will be 5-6; swimming for the top 2 lanes of B squad and A squad will be 7-8pm.
Unfortunately we are still short of volunteers to take up committee posts at the AGM, which will be very quick and take place at 6pm on Sunday. The club relies on new parents getting involved each year to help run the club and ensure its survival. More details of posts available are here. We meet once a month, usually on a Sunday at 6pm (during B squad), for about an hour and a half, and would be very grateful for your help. Please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like a chat about it or are willing to step forward and join us, or to help out in a non-committee capacity – we’d particularly love to hear from you if you have experience of applying for grants or fundraising, or are a natural organizer of people, but don’t let that put you off if it’s not the case!
