Sponsored Swim

Every year, the club holds a sponsored swim. This not only gives us a chance to raise money for the club and a local charity, but just as importantly it allows the swimmers to achieve something they can be proud of. They are always amazed at how far they can swim, as are the people who sponsor them.

All swimmers will receive a certificate and badge for the distance they have managed to cover. The coaches will be on hand to ensure everyone has a fun time and achieves their potential.

The money we raise will go towards a charity of the club’s choice.  This year’s charity, chosen by our members, is the Wave Project.

As well as donating through the club, using cash or cheques, you may also donate through our Justgiving page.

Some rules:

  1. Prior to starting distance swim – make sure you have been to the toilet, if you get out of the pool, you cannot get back in!
  2. Swimmers are not allowed to place their feet on the bottom of the pool during swim.
  3. Swimmers are not allowed to stop at either end of the pool for a rest.
  4. You can change stroke at any time.
  5. If you intend to swim a lot of lengths, (more than 50 lengths) you should be at the pool to start your sponsored swim during 1st or 2nd This will allow sufficient time for you to complete your sponsored swim in good time.
  6. You may swim on both days, however, only one of the swims will count.
  7. Parent volunteers will be needed to help count lengths and encourage the swimmers.
  8. All money and sponsor forms should be handed into the desk, or donated through the Justgiving page.
  9. Have fun!

As you know we try our best to make sure that our swimmers are given the chance to have their say in what happens in the club.

At the start of last term our swimmers asked if we could organise a bring a parent to club night, visit the aquadash, introduce a way of recognising their achievements and introduce more fitness into our Senior program.

We listened to them and had several parents join us in the pool for a coaching session with their child, the committee have organised a trip to the aquadash for end of May and our new Star Swimmer Awards have given us the chance to give the swimmers a reward for their hard work.

The fitness sessions have taken a bit of organising and we have interviewed 3 potential fitness instructors for the Senior swimmers to try some sessions to work on improving their land based fitness.

On Monday 29th April we will be running a session from 7pm - 8pm where they will be given the opportunity to work with these instructors.

Each instructor will deliver a 20 minute fitness session and at the end the swimmers will choose who they would like to work with.
This will then lead to a further 4 week trial with the aim of introducing this into our weekly sessions after the summer break.

More info will be emailed out next week.

If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate contact us.
