I hope you all are well and taking this very unique time in our lives to try something different whether that be cooking, learning a new language, growing something or just looking at what is in our gardens.
I appreciate that you must be very frustrated by not being able to get into the pool, however Swim England have indicated that it may not be long before we can resume in some form. We are awaiting the next update from Swim England on the 15th June and subsequent government guidance. As soon as we know anything, we will let you know.
With the future in mind, please see attached letter from one of our coaches, Scott.
In the meantime, you will find the results of the one hour swim challenge that was held earlier in the year, and the national placings for individuals and teams on our website www.andoverswimming.co.uk We had 21 top ten placings overall, with one individual and four teams achieving medal placings. Well done all!
Finally, to refresh your swimming knowledge, I have attached a quiz. Get your swimmer(s) to complete the quiz and return it to me before the 20th June to be in with a chance of winning: a £15 Gift card, a £10 voucher to spend on ASWPC club kit, or an ASWPC swim hat. Prizes will be awarded to each squad (Competitive, Development, and Learn to compete).
We very much look forward to working with all our swimmers, pool side helpers, coaches and teachers in the months ahead to resume swimming in a safe manner; It hopefully won’t be long.
Please do look after yourselves and everyone around you.
Andover Swimming and Water Polo Club
