New Officials J1 Training course dates

We are running a Swimming Official J1 training course at HARTSDOWN commencing in June – All it takes is attendance at three 2-hour evening sessions from 6-8pm and then on-the-job experience and mentoring – PLEASE consider signing up.  We cannot run galas without officials – we need a minimum of 20 Officials per gala session to maintain a gala licence for times to go onto rankings.  We need as many parents to sign up as possible, to share the load – thank you!

Sheffield premier meet success

Well done to our Swimmers at the City of Sheffield Premier Level 1 meet over the weekend of 29-31st March, it was a really good process-focussed gala.  We had 9 swimmers compete in 46 races with a 52% PB rate! Special mentions for:
GOLD for Olivia (1500Fr) and Liam (50Fly)
SILVER for Max (200Bk)
BRONZE for Liam (100Fly)
Max (6 races and made the finals in ALL of them!), Oscar-M (5 races 3PBs and made the OPEN final in the 200Br!), Liam (PB’d in all 6 races!), Luca (6 races 5PBs), Josh (7 races 4PBs), Halle (6 races 3PBs), Evie (3 races 2PBs).
(The event had combined age groups for 15/16 and 17+ and the finals were 14/U and 15+ only, so this impacted opportunities for finals and medals for our team). 

Maisie – European Open Water Cup

Congratulations to Maisie Macartney for a fantastic first Open Water race of the 2019 season. Maisie represented GB at the LEN European Open Water Cup in Eilat, Israel over the weekend of the 30-31st March.  On the Saturday, Maisie competed with the GB relay team which won the Silver medal. On the Sunday in her individual event she came 17th overall, and was the third best placed GB female and 3rd junior competitor overall.  This is a really great result, especially as the conditions were particularly unpleasant with a choppy swell which resulted in many swimmers, Maisie included, suffering from seasickness.  Maisie’s great results means she will progress with the GB team and participate in the next two rounds of the LEN Cup; Round 2 will be in Brive, France over the 21-24th May and Round 3 which will be in Barcelona in late June.
