Welcome to Bottisham Swimming Club!

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.

Arrangements for The Neate Meet

It’s the West Suffolk Swimming Club Neate Meet next weekend and BSC is taking over 30 swimmers, which is wonderful.

Here is the list of accepted entries, in case you can’t remember what you are/your child is swimming: neate-meet-16-all-entries

If you can’t now swim or want to withdraw from some of your races and I don’t know about it already, please let Karl know and he will ensure you are withdrawn from the meet so that it does not run with empty lanes.

Here is the programme for the weekend, in case you can’t remember what time you need to be at the pool: WSSC_Neate_Meet_2016_-_Programme_of_Events.

Please arrive at least a quarter of an hour before the start of the warm-up for each session and report to the Sports Hall where Karl and at least one parent helper should be there to tick you off the list.  Parent helpers, if you can try to get there half an hour early that would be really appreciated!  All children will need shoes to wear in the sports hall please as it gets really slippy there; it can also get chilly, so please make sure they have some tracksuit bottoms and a hoody to keep them warm between races.

Thank you to all parents who have volunteered to help marshalling or officiating at the meet – we couldn’t do it without you.

I am not going to be around for this one so please contact Karl on coaching@bottishamswimclub.org.uk if there are any issues before, during or after the gala.  Good luck everyone!  Swim fast, don’t get DQ’d!


The End of Open Water

Our Open Water swimming sessions in association with the Junior Tri Club at Milton Country Park on Tuesday evenings have now finished for the summer.  Thanks to everyone who supported this initiative.  We hope to do the same again next year.

Our huge thanks go to Cambridge Tri Club for making it happen, in particular to Don Hutchinson and Kevin Howe.

Autumn Kit Orders Deadline 1 October

If you would like any club kit, the deadline for Autumn orders is 1 October.  For more details of what is available and to access the order form please see this post from the Summer.  There will be one more opportunity to order before Christmas, but if your children need kit to look smart at Club Champs, for example, now’s the time!  Please return forms to Cathryn Mellersh, or to a coach to pass on to her.
