A Young Volunteer Development Day will be taking place on Saturday 21st January 2017 for young volunteers from across the North East region who are aged between 14 and 19 years old.

Team Manager Module 2 Training

Please see the flyer View Flyer for the ASA North East Region Team Manager Training.

Christmas Swim Clinic with Aimee Willmott

Please see the flyer View Flyer which is for a swim clinic organised by Aimee Wilmott at Middleborough Leisure Centre on Monday 19th December.

If you wish to attend please arrange attendance with the organisers directly. It sounds a great opportunity and I know how many enthusiasm and commitment Aimee has for swimming.

Message from Kay for the AB squad only (Please ignore if not in that squad)

It is fantastic to see so many swimmers who no longer wish to compete or cant attend the number of sessions required for the other squads to remain in the club and move into AB squad.

As a result of AB squad success the numbers are getting too big for you all to be accomodated in one lane. For some reason this is only a problem on a MOnday whne the majority of you attend.

To resolve the issue for a trial period before I take the proposal to the committee for ratification I am changing the times for AB swimming on a Monday.

From Monday 21st Nov 2017 the following will happen

    7.30pm - 8.15pm all year 10 swimmers and below 
    8.15pm - 9pm all year 11 swimmers and above

This will give you space in the lane and allow you to complete a full session and gain the benefits from that session.

If you have any problems with attending at the times allocated please discuss with me on poolside.

All other AB sessions will remain the same - it is only the Monday session where we have too many swimmers  and I need to change the times.

Many thanks

Janet Peck will be stepping down from her role as treasurer from March 2017 due to her many other commitments. This is one of the roles that is critical to the running of the club so we are looking for a volunteer to fill this position as soon as possible so Janet has chance to hand over all the details and has time to get banking details approved before March. If anyone is at all interested, or just want to know what the role involves please speak directly to Janet who is often at poolside, or contact me.

Northumberland & Durham Swimming Association Championships, 4th / 5th  and                           25th / 26th February 2017

The official documentation for the NDSA Championships (county championships) has been published.  The event is open to qualifiers - the qualifying times (50m) are set out on page 7 of the document.  Times must have been achieved since 1 January 2016, 25m converted times are accepted.

Entries will be requested towards the end of the year, but swimmers should note the dates and details of the event and be aware of the entry times - which might guide entries in other competitions between now and December.

Swimmers, please note that it is your responsibility to know whether you have qualified for any events.  The club encourages all swimmers to enter these championships if they are eligible.

Gala Entry Payments

I have recently reviewed how the club will administer payment of gala's going forward.

  1. All entries need to be submitted to Lynda Garland (Gala Secretary) as normal.
  2. Once entries have been accepted by the organising club, these will be displayed on our club website.
  3. Payment must then be made for your entries. Please can you make sure that payment is made before the gala has taken place but not before entries have been accepted.
  4. Once entries have been accepted no refunds can be made.

I hope this is self explanatory however please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish.

Many thanks
