New season fast appoaching

We hope everyone has enjoyed the summer break and is raring to get back for another season on swimming.

Please remember that training commences from Tuesday 1st September.

If you have any questions, please email your coaches.

REMINDER – Club BBQ – Sunday

The club will be hosting our Summer Beach BBQ on Sunday open to all club members. Taking place at Botany Bay (Kingsgate) from 2pm, we hope to have some fun and games. It is a great way to catch up following the summer break and get to know others in the club.

We hope the weather is kind to us and look forward to seeing as many of you there.

Club champs online entry

Thank you to everyone that has entered the club championships using our new online booking system. We have received 176 swimmers entries for the Saturday championships, which is another record number.

Out of this, we have only 16 entries that have been made and not paid for, and these will be followed up this week.

Please note that moving forward we will be expecting swimmers/parents to use the new system, as cash/cheque payments will no longer be acceptable (unless in the event of website issues).  To assist anyone that has experienced troubles, we will be running various demonstrations during upcoming training sessions.

Season 2014/15 – Chairman statement

It has been a fantastic year for achievements and one that has announced the club to the swimming world. With amazing results at the recent British and ASA Nationals, it has brought a close to one of our best ever years.

This year saw our 2nd GB swimmer, Jamie O’Connor, being picked to compete in the Youth Olympics. (We wish our 1st GB swimmer, Katie Latham and her twin sister Alice, the very best as then move on to University.)

Another sign of the development of the club is how well we performed in the team events, with our first ever Kent Junior League win as well as qualifying for the South District Arena League final for the first time and then going one better and making the National B final.

Our first season as a combined club, the improvements have been beyond belief and I would like thank the efforts of the coaching teams and committee for creating a plan that should see the club continue to grow and improve long into the future.

I hope that everyone enjoys the down time during the club break and comes back in September ready to see where we can get next season.

Thank you
