Congratulations to all our swimmers who participated in the IMPS Gala this Saturday at Dawlish Leisure Centre! Many personal bests were achieved, and a great first gala for some of our new swimmers. Thanks to our coaches and Dawlish Swimming Club for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable event!
Congratulations to our coaches Ralph and Tiegan on receiving their ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher Qualification. We appreciate all the hard work you’ve put in and we’re happy to have you back on poolside with new tips and tricks!
It’s been a busy few months with our swimmers competing in several galas around the region including: Tiverton Fun Team Gala, Crediton Team Gala, Taunton and Millfield Sprint Meet and the Exmouth Summer Gala. Lots of Personal Bests achieved demonstrating all the hard work is paying off. Enjoy the summer break, and look forward to seeing you again in September!
A big thanks to all the clubs who have hosted these galas – we appreciate it!
Our Annual General Meeting is occurring Saturday 22nd April 2017 at Cotleigh Village Hall from 4:30p.m. This presentation event and Annual General Meeting provides an opportunity for family and friends to come together to acknowledge the endeavours and achievements of swimmers, and learn more about club events and future plans.
Hope to see you there!
The first set of Club Championship events were held last night and were a total success! Many Personal Bests, and 2 Club Records were set – congratulations to all. Full results can be viewed in the Members Area section. Looking forward to our next set of events.
Team members gathered on the last Friday before the break to make use of the more recreational side of our facilities. Looks like they had a great time, and thanks to @LedHonitonLeisureCentre for providing the inflatables
Dear Parents/ Guardians,
As part of our ongoing development of swimmers we have decided that at the start of next season, September 2016, all swimmers will be required to have their own poolside kit. This is due to a lack of equipment available at the pool (we only have a few odd size short fins and hand paddles which isn’t very helpful to everyone).
The equipment required should consist of a netted bag, kickboard, short fins and pullbouy. For Development squad upwards, including Fitness swimmers, they require finger paddles as well. The equipment should be brought to every training session.
I appreciate there is an extra cost to all of this but it is an important part of the swimmers development. This equipment requirement applies to all other swimming clubs.
If you have any queries please feel free to speak to me or Ralph Lynch and I thank you for your cooperation.
I know as your child grows things might not fit so we will try and set up a system where by equipment can be bought and sold.
We have just been informed by the ASA that we are now a fully accredited SWIM 21 Club.
Well done to all involved!
Fourteen of our swimmers attended a friendly Relay Gala at Sidmouth yesterday afternoon at the invite of Sid Vale Sharks swimming club.
They all did really well despite the circumstances. Unfortunately, due to a lack of swimmers, they all had to do a lot of swimming to make up the numbers. They did this with great enthusiasm and courage.
It was a good opportunity for some of our younger swimmers to gain experience of what galas are about, as some of them have never done one before.
They should all be very proud of themselves. They were a credit to the club.
