Interested in becoming a swimming teacher and helping our club?

As the club continues to grow with more sessions being provided over the last year, we need to grow our teaching group.  We are requesting if any parents/guardians are interested in helping on poolside, please make yourself known to one of our teachers or the desk.  We will train you and ensure you go through all the checks and assurances to qualify you to teach/coach.  You can help with just one session or more, it is up to you.  We just need a reasonable amount of consistency to enable us to plan our session delivery.  The quality of th progression of our swimmers relies on the quality of our teachers, therefore you can directly help our club progress if you volunteer.

Thank you, Paul Armstrong (Club Chair and Chief Coach).

Outstanding performance in the Lancashire County Age Groups!

The club competed in the Lancashire County Age Groups across three consecutive weekends
in January and February. This year the club had eleven swimmers who achieved the
qualifying times and entered the competition. Just achieving a qualifying time is an
excellent achievement which requires a lot of training and dedication so really well done to all
the swimmers who represented the club.
 
Overall the club finished joint 5th in the Championship points table beating all of the local
clubs with the exception of City of Liverpool Swimming Club and finished 16th in the Age
Group Competition, also a fantastic achievement.
 
Of the eleven swimmers representing the club, four achieved podium finishes, winning a
mix of gold, silver, and bronze medals. The swimmers winning medals were
Thomas Simon
T'Neesha  BenĂ©t Smith
Tyriese Smith
Evagelos (Van) Xynarianos

The other swimmers who represented the club were:
Jess Cooney
Berdan Ordek
Naimh Porter
Elise Bruns
Elizabeth Cooney
Tyler Delaney
John Paul Bruder
A really well done to all of the swimmers who were as ever a credit to themselves,
their families and Bridgefield Swimming Club
