We are a friendly and competitive swimming club based just north of Cambridge, with about 100 swimmers aged between 7 and 20. We swim at Bottisham and Impington Village College pools, and at galas throughout the eastern region and beyond.
Our latest news appears below, or please click on the links for more information.
Carol tells me that all of the club’s entries for the Newmarket gala have been accepted – she hasn’t sent a list of events for checking round yet as unfortunately it requires a little reformatting, but we’re all in. Hooray!
As we have 45 swimmers attending over the weekend, we need volunteers to assist with looking after the swimmers and helping them get to their races on time. We’ll find a way to ensure you still see your child/ren’s races, and it’s much less boring than just sitting poolside for three hours! If you are able to help out at any of the sessions, please reply to this email and let me know. Thank you.
Each year we order hats with the swimmers’ names written on the side, in time for the County Championships so that those who qualify can also have ‘County/Regional Qualifier [year]’ written underneath their names. Apart from being very cool, having names on hats really helps the coaches and particularly any guest coaches who come in from time to time, so everyone is encouraged to order a named hat whether or not they are a county qualifier!
The lovely and wonderful Astrid Den Ouden has again agreed to take on our personalised hats order. The deadline for return of the forms is Wednesday 9 December – the same day as county entries have to be in to Carol by – and swimmers will all know whether or not they have hit the county qualifying times by then, as Newmarket is the weekend before. Please give your forms to Astrid, or failing that to a coach or committee member poolside. Here’s the form: Hat order form 2015
David Silk is hosting an informal afternoon gala at the Leys School’s pool at 2pm next Saturday. Anyone can attend – just turn up. You will get timed swims and plenty of opportunity to practise your competitive starts, turns and strokes. Ask Dave if you would like more information.
