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.

 

Sponsored Swim

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.

Please download the sponsor form below.

Swim Analysis

Assess Your Swimming Performance In Detail

121025_Swimovate-PoolMates-free-Facebook-app-charts-and-tablesAs most of you will be aware an electronic system has recently been developed to assist with the recording of results at championship and time trial events.   This system now holds over 2500 event records and is now able to produce a more detailed analysis of an individual’s performance.  This detail could include averaged stroke rates and split times, distance and speed calculations and swim style comparisons in various spreadsheet formats.

If you are a swimmer who likes to analyse your performance and progress in more detail then please contact Graham at poolside to discuss your requirements.
