Junior Grand Prix R1 Saturday 7th September

Saturday 7th Sept saw the younger generation of Team Ilkeston in action at the first round of the DX Grand Prix held at Alfreton Leisure Centre.

After a busy week and just 6 days into the new training programme we saw some outstanding performances and it was great to see our swimmers already racking up county qualifying times so early in the season!

Debut swims and new to competition we saw 4 Development Squad swimmers, Darcie Barker produce a fab 50 free knocking 8 seconds off her previous pb, Emily Stone bringing her usual laid back attitude and swimming a great 50 Free and 50 Fly, Evie O’Neil overcoming her fears to produce a gutsy 50 Fly and fast 50 Free and Ronnie Archer giving everything a go and racing fast with a smile on his face.

Some highlights of the night include Felicity Dobbs wonderful swim in the 100 IM, Sophia Bull’s fantastic 50 Fly, Freya Miller looking impressive in the 50 Free, Emmi Charlesworth producing a huge pb in the 100 Fly, Annie Poyner looking quick in the 50 Free, Maisie Dorrington with some solid performances as well as making me laugh so much poolside and McKinley Cotton finishing 2nd in the 100 IM to then go on and obliterate the competition in the 100 Fly and 50 Free (special mention to James Wright for giving her some great advice in training this week too).

And finally to end with the double act that is Alfie Brown and Leo Charlesworth. The boys really went out of their way to help the younger inexperienced kids, without even being asked! Proud coach moment!

Excellent team behaviour all round and we really showed the rest of Derbyshire what we are about.

Thanks to the children, to Vicky for judging and to Kay and Claire for their excellent team managing and ensuring everything ran smoothly.

Bring on round 2!

Derby and Notts Junior League Round 1

The final results, individual times and relay split times can now be found on the website in our member area:


Please contact a member of the coaching team is you require the user name and password for the members area. 

We were drawn against some tough competition, but this did not appear to phase our swimmers, nor did they disappoint on the night!

Throughout the night, we managed to secure two first place finishes, ten second place finishes and fourteen third place finishes which is a brilliant effort by all swimmers.

We held third place overall throughout the gala right up until the final event, the cannon at the end, where unfortunately we were disqualified for one of the takeovers. Whilst disqualifications can be extremely frustrating, we learn from them, move on, and use them to further motivate us for the next round.

Overall, we finished in fourth place, missing out on third by one point! The effort levels from our swimmers were extremely high, and it was brilliant to see everyone (parents included) coming together as one team, and supporting their teammates.

The final results were City of Derby A in first with 269 points, Etwall Blues in second with 174 points, Nottingham Leander B in third with 160 points, Ilkeston in fourth with 159 points, Eckington in fifth with 159 points and Hucknall and Linby in sixth with 84 points.

A special mention and well done goes to Felicity Dobbs, Sami Zilate, Kieran Law and William Radford for representing Team Ilkeston for the first time at a team gala.

Thanks to Gary, Victoria, Kay, Steph, Kate, Jake, Eve, Holly and Delainey for all helping out on the night.

Round two is on Saturday 18th May and team selections will be being sent out via text message very shortly.
