Sid Vale Gala

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.


AGM Announcement

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to change the date of the planned presentation evening/AGM to: Saturday 14th May 2016 starting at 4pm
Please come along and support the swimmers and club.

East Devon Network Development Day

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.


27th February Time Trials Results

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!

Friday 19th – Pyjama party!

Pyjama Party
Following tradition, the last swimming session of the year will hold the annual pyjama party! This session will be on Friday 19th December. Make sure you bring your pyjamas, and see you there!

On a side not, we will start swimming again on Sunday 4th January. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
