13 July 2014- length Session, summer opening
Over the summer period we normally close, but this year we will be staying open.
There will be a 1 hour session run on Wednesdays from 6.00 to 7.00pm, for length swimmers.

This will start from the 23rd July and run all through the summer closed preiod. 2.00 payable at the session.

All swimmers taking part in the Echo Cup are encouraged to attend these sessions as the Gala will be at the end of August, so a summer away from training is not the best preperation.
 

Our teachers are prepared to put the effort in to delivering these sessions, so we ask for all you swimmers to come along and work hard over the summer.

19 June 2014
The club is running special sessions on Friday 20th June and Sunday 22nd June to provide swimmers with the opportunity to attain the Competitive Start Award. Swimmers will be expected to demonstrate they can dive safely into shallow water in order to achieve the standard.

Swimmers successfully completing the award will receive a certificate and also be allowed to dive into shallow water when representing the club in galas subject to the gala promoter permitting this.

 
Swimmers should attend the sessions at their normal times. Please make every effort to attend.

5 May 2014
Our fantastic swimmers are currently working very hard to improve their starts with the aim that the majority of our Intermediate and Advanced swimmers will successfully complete the Competitive Start Award in the next two months. Swimmers will receive a certificate as reward for their achievement.

Successfully gaining the certificate also allows swimmers (where gala promoters rules permit) to dive into shallow water when representing the club in competition. This has 2 advantages. Firstly swimmers gain an advantage from diving rather than starting in the water, but also in relay races swimmers are far less likely to 'take a flyer' with a dive takeover as opposed to an in the water start.

We will announce a date in the next couple of weeks when the assessments will take place. Can swimmers and parents please make every effort to attend."

 

5 MAY 2014
The club has been invited to join a newly formed City of Liverpool Development League.

The idea of the league is that it will provide developing clubs like ourselves the opportunity to gain valuable experience in competition.

The galas will consist of a mixture of individual and relay events and is open to all age groups in the club from 9 and under right through to open age. There will be four galas between now and the end of the year. The first 2 will take place on Sunday 25th May and Sunday July 20th, with the warm up time for both being 11am. The galas wil take place at the Knowsley Culture Park, Huyton.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our swimmers to gain valuable gala experience in a friendly environment. Swimmers who have competed in County or Regional Championships in the last 12 months are not permitted to compete,, and a 'speeding ticket' rule will apply which means that if swimmers or relay teams swim faster than the 'speed limit' the team will get only 1 point. This is to ensure clubs don't swim 'ringers'.

The galas promise to be a great deal of fun and it will be great to see our swimmers enjoying the experience.

A Team Sheet for the first gala on 25th May will be available in the next 7 days. The coaches look forward to seeing our parents and swimmers enjoying the galas.

The Gala dates page on the website has been updated.

Can all swimmers and parents please take note of the dates when the club is involved in galas. We have added venues, times and the age groups of swimmers involved. There may be a coach running to the gala in Warrington. This is to be confirmed.

Providing the dates at this stage is intended to be an early 'heads up'. Can you please make every effort to be available to represent the club in the galas listed. The galas will also be added to the 'Gala Dates' area on the website and this will be kept updated on a regular basis.

The club will in future issue Team Sheets two weeks in advance of galas taking place. Swimmers and parents should make every effort to attend however if this is not possible can they advise the club at the earliest opportunity, as Team Managers should not be making last minute changes to the team during the warm up period as they should be focused on preparing swimmers for the gala ahead.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support.

Change of Sunday club session times
From 27 April Sunday club session times will be as follows:

  • 1st session (widths) 3.00pm to  3.30pm
  • 2nd session (lengths) 3.30pm to 5.00pm

we have been approached by the council and asked to consider moving our sessions back by 2 hours.. These new times are more in line with the times we originally asked for last year. We have always thought that the later start time would suit more of our members and have such have accepted these times after they were discussed and accepted by our committee.

We apologise for the change but do feel that this is best for the club. Hopefully the change in time will mean that more children, who found the earlier session times difficult will be able to attend.
