Richmond Gala Update

All entries for the Richmond gala on the 17th and 18th September have been accepted, these entries should now be paid for as soon as possible please.

Date for you Diary

Our annual competition with Portabello is due to be an 'away' match this year. It is due to take place on the afternoon of Sunday 25th September.

Nearer the time Kay will put up a list of those who would like to be considered for the team and she will then select the team to represent MASC in this long running 'International' match.

Details of bus times and events will all follow later but it is worth marking your calendars now as it is a great, fun but truly comptitive event and gives you a chance to swim for team Morpeth.

Training Sessions during the Summer Holidays

During the school summer holidays we will have a reduced number of training sessions, the details are below:

WEEKDAY Morning sessions will stop through summer - The last one will be Friday 22nd July, the first one back will be Monday 5th September.

Land Training will stop through the summer - The last one will be Tues 19th July, the first one back will be Tues 6th September.

Saturday Mornings - will continue as normal throughout the summer period.

Sunday afternoon sessions - will continue as normal throughout the summer period.

All evening sessions - will continue as normal throughout the summer period.

Just a reminder to swimmers that Kay has advised that it is good practice for ALL swimmers to take a full two week break from training at some point during the summer.

Most sessions during summer will be concentrating on techniques, in preparation for the new season. However on Friday evenings things are a bit more fun and informal - each week will have a different theme:

    Week 1     Starts and Turns
    Week 2     Mini Olympics
    Week 3     Swimopoly
    Week 4     Coaches V Swimmer's Choice
    Week 5     Survival of the fittest
    Week 6     Speed night

Also, Jenny would like to change start times a bit in order to fit these events in FOR THE SUMMER ONLY squad times are as follows for Fridays:


AA Squad















AB Squad



A Squad



B Squad


If you have any questions about the summer programme please speak to Jenny on poolside.

Head Coach Update

Dear swimmers and parents

It has been a great season and you have all worked hard, improved your times and fitness and done yourself proud  !!!

As the holidays approach this is just a quick update to let you know that from Saturday 23rd July until Monday 19th September I won't be around for coaching duty. However I will be using the time to start preparing for the season ahead. I want to use the time to research/develop new session plans and research/prepare technique sessions both in the water and in the classroom.

Jenny Glossop, who you will all know from morning sessions, will be taking over during my absence and any swimming queries should initially go to Jenny for resolution or onto the committee.

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and support during my first year as Head Coach and I look forward to seeing you all back in the pool in September.

Regards, Kay Howe Email Head Coach

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
Janet Peck (Treasurer) Email MASC Treasurer
