Swimmers of the Month

The Morpeth ASC - Swimmer of the month has now been reintroduced.

Swimmer of the Month awards give the coaching team an opportunity to recognise the achievements and efforts of swimmers in both training and competition and or other club activities.

The Swimmer of the month will be awarded and presented by the coaching team each month to a swimmer from each squad – AA, A, AB, B, DEV and Minnows. Presentations will be the first Monday of each month for swimmers in AA, A, B and AB and the first Wednesday of the month for Development.

Due to the Easter holidays the March swimmer of the Month awards have been delayed! Certificates will be presented at training during the week commencing 24th April. The month awards can be found lower down on this page.

Hope everyone has been enjoying the long Easter weekend!

I am delighted to announce that Will Pallett and Lauren Howe will be our club captains taking over from Ed Syndercombe and Eve Smart following the club AGM (27th April). Big thanks to Ed and Eve for their work over the last 12 months. I am looking forward to working with Will and Lauren (and the Junior committee) to help move Morpeth ASC forwards in all areas.

Mini Time Trial Update

I have arranged for the 2nd Mini Time Trial to be held on Sunday 14th May 2017 for swimmers in Minnows and Development plus swimmers in A + B squads born in 2008, 2007, 2006 or 2005. The time trial will also act as a Diddy Swim off for the Diddy final. The times will be used to select the team for the Diddy League final on 11th June. It is therefore important that swimmers attend.

ALL Swimmers will compete in 25m races on each competitive swimming stroke - Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle (Front crawl). Selected swimmers may also be entered for 50m events, Becki will email these swimmers/parents directly nearer the time.

Mini Time Trials also give swimmers an opportunity to practice what they have been working on in training sessions and gain a little bit of experience of competing and achieve ASA Speed Awards.

There is no 'official' entry form for Mini time trials. Can you please email with your child's NAME and YEAR OF BIRTH by Sunday 7th May. No late entries.

We have the pool booked 3-6pm but finish time will depend on the number of entries.

Many Thanks,
Becki (Morpeth Head Coach Email Head Coach)

Development: As a guide all swimmers involved with Diddy league should be looking at Category 2 (they do NOT need to be for Diddy) however they should be looking into entering future galas.

Lyndsey Henderson (Membership Secretary Email our Membership Secretary)

Gala Entry Payments

The way the club will be administering the payments for galas going forward is.

  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.
