A message from head coach Ralph Watson
Nine of our swimmers, together with Ralph Lynch and myself attended the day, which was organised by the East Devon Network at Taunton School.
The day consisted of two, hour and a half, swim sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with Pre pool warm up routines before each session.
An hour Land Training session and a Motivational talk with Olympic swimmer Antony James, who also did a demonstration in the pool.
Our swimmers really enjoyed the experience and with that I shall try and get some more of these days.
The individual PB reports and event reports for swimmers have now been updated, following recent galas. For those who are unaware, these can be accessed from https://honitonswim.wordpress.com/swimmers-times/, and are useful for quickly finding entry times for galas.
A big well done to all swimmers who participated in the time trials session on Friday 27th February. It was great to see that all of our new swimmers from the earlier session swam, especially as it was the first official race for many of them!
The results of the time trial can now be found under the “Results” tab of the website, or by clicking on the following link: 27-Feb-15 – Time Trials Results
A special congratulations should be given to Carys Lilley, who broke two club records, (100m backstroke and 100m butterfly) and Jack Gregorius, who broke one. (100m backstroke)
Note – 01/03/15 – Due to confusions on the IT side, a few times may be falsely displayed as a personal best. This should only affect swimmers who have gained a personal best in the past ~5 months, which was faster than the time achieved. We are working to re-generate the results, in order to take these recent events into account. A notification will be posted when the times are accurate. Thanks!

Don’t forget the closing date for registration is Tuesday 3rd March, so if you have not registered or want to change any events please do so by this date.
Well done to everyone that took part in last Friday’s (24/10/14) time trials! In total, 24 swimmers participated, including some of the very young swimmers. In total 37 PB’s were achieved between everyone. Well done!
A special mention must go to Dan Clarke, who achieved a club record in the 50m backstroke event. Also to Carys Lilley, who achieved two club records, one in 50m breastroke and the other in 50m butterfly.
All of the times can now be viewed in the “Results” section of this website, or via the following link: Time Trial Results
NB: A note to our newest swimmers – we realise that your results may not be on this table. This will be rectified as soon as possible, once you have been formally added to the club database.
Friday 25th July
The club is organising a sponsored swim on Friday 25th July between 19:00 – 21:00hrs. It is hoped all club swimmers will take part in this event to help raise vital funds for a new club kit. In addition to the funds raised the club will be supported by Barclays who will double the total amount. This would mean that if each swimmer could obtain a minimum of £10 the club would raise over £900 towards the new club kit. Obviously the more raised the more the club will receive from Barclays.
