Important Swim Club Update

Our head coach Emily Herbert has decided to step down from the role due to other commitments. Emily will still remain involved with the club both as a swimmer and as a teacher/coach for some of the regular sessions.

Control of the teaching & coaching within the club will be taken forward by two of our existing teachers, Dani Dewey and Dave Gregory. Both have been involved with the club for many years in various capacities and both are competitive swimmers themselves.

We’d like to say thanks to Emily for helping the club through challenging times as we’ve settled into the temporary pool since last Autumn, and we hope you’ll make Dani and Dave feel welcome as they take on their new roles.

We’re now on a two week break and will return to training from Friday 7th September onward. Hope you all enjoy the break…….

Important: Summer Holidays

We’re taking a couple of short breaks from swimming, one at the start of the summer and another at the end.  The dates are shown below, and also on the attached calendar.  During these breaks there will be no swimming club sessions.  At all other times, all normal club sessions will continue.

First break: Monday 16th July to Sunday 29th July inclusive.

Second break: Friday 24th August to Thursday 6th September inclusive.

Gala Updates

1.  Gala Results

Well done to everyone who swam in the Rother Junior Trophies gala at Eastleigh yesterday.  There were some good swims from those who hadn’t competed before, and there were plenty of PBs (personal best times).  Here are the RESULTS.

2.  Galas Coming Soon

We have two rounds of the Rother League competition during June:

     Saturday 9th June – Round 1 at Eastleigh

     Saturday 23rd June  – Round 2 at Gosport

Team selections for both galas are on the noticeboard at the pool.  Please check whether you have been selected for one or both of these, and tick the sheet(s) to confirm you can and will attend.

Please can parents who are willing to help (in any capacity) please indicate this on the team selection sheets.  It takes lots of people to run a gala, and for round 1 on the 9th June we are the host club, so will need lots of support.

Thanks
