Crediton Interclub Results

27th June 2015

DSC02706A big congratulations to all our swimmers who took part in the gala yesterday.  Not only were there some excellent performances but the support provided to team colleagues was superb.  Some swimmers took part in over 10 events to compensate for our lack of male competitors but this did not limit the number of PB’s achieved.  One of the most noticeable and commendable elements of our swimmers was the etiquette they demonstrated during the race starts which Coach Ralph was extremely proud of.  Unfortunately we are not able to provide individual times for the relay events but the times and team members/order of swim can be seen below.

The results of individual races can be found in the link provided at the bottom of this post.

New Swim Session Added

StingraysTimeTrials

The club is pleased to announce the introduction of a new swim session on Wednesday evenings between 6-7pm which was prompted by the recent club survey.  This session is ideally aimed at our younger swimmers to enable them to gain extra pool hours without impacting on their education arrangements.  To enable the club to structure sessions appropriately throughout the week please can parents let our Head Coach know the sessions swimmers are likely to attend.

Cancellation of Aquathlon and Summer Holiday Sessions

Cancelled

It is with regret the Aquathlon which was scheduled for 19th July and the additional swim sessions that were due to take place during the summer holidays have been cancelled.   This decision was based on the previous attendance at these events and the availability of club members during July and August.  The last swim session before the summer break will now be Sunday 31st July with the new season starting on Sunday 30th August.  We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

New Kit Launch

Saturday 11th JulySwimming Club Logo (digital)

After many years of waiting the club is now in the fantastic position to establish an identity by introducing a new club kit.  To mark this momentous occasion and to ensure the kit is ready for the start of the swim season in September the club have organised an event on Saturday 11th July at Cotleigh Village Hall starting at 17:30hrs when the kit will be launched.  To support this occasion the club have also organised a presentation by a nutritionist who will provide members with an insight into healthy eating and living.

The club recognise this is a late notice announcement but due to the ordering time frames we urge parents to support this event so swimmers can be measured for sizing and for orders to be placed.  It is envisaged the event will last no more than 2 hours and members are encouraged to bring along refreshments for their own consumption.

The kit will comprise of a top, shorts, hoody and full tracksuit with a discounted price of £45 for members who are 14 and under and £55 for all other members.  This represents a 50% discount on the purchase costs which has been made possible by grants and fundraising events.  The club will strive to maintain this discount in the future but will need the help of all members to organise and support future fundraising events to make this possible.

We are also keen to introduce some form of buy-back scheme in order to support the regular size changes of our members.  Details of this have yet to be confirmed but any suggestions on how this can be supported would be welcomed.

Please come along to this special occasion so we can process orders at the earliest opportunity.
