ISC competing in the County Championships features in the sports section of today’s Ilkeston Advertiser. Well done Jo Buckingham for continuing to get us ‘in the news’!
Please be advised that, further to confirmation of new swimmer trials, there is now NO change to training times on Sunday for Squad assessments – ALL swimmers please come to training at the usual time: 3pm to 4pm – Foundation & Development and 4pm to 6pm – Midland, Junior Elite & National.
There will again be a sale of used/nearly new/new equipment 3.30pm to 5pm:
Tom Tom water bottles 50p and Fins, Pull buoys, Kick boards £1 for Club fundraising.
However, if you think your choice is worth more, please feel free to donate more….
There are two DASA organised training sessions available for swimmers in Derbyshire at Cliff Lakes (Tamworth) on the 1st and 15th of June 2019, in readiness for the Midlands Open Water Festival on the 7th of July which will include:
• Age Group Championships 2k, 3k & 5k for all national qualifying age groups
• Masters & Senior Championships 2k, 3k & 5k
• Mini Challenge (500m) 10 years and over
• Maxi Challenge (1k) 11 years and over
• Relay: 3 x 250m for 11-15 years and for 16 years and over
• Relay : 3 x 500m – 16 years and over
If any swimmer in the Club would like to try these training sessions and register as a group with Richard supporting, please contact Leeann at pool or e-mail at, firstname.lastname@example.org by Thurs 4 April – I have a flyer available but no web link.
No prior open water swimming experience is necessary and the cost is £5 per swimmer and £10 for wetsuit hire (per training session I think…!) . The training cost is reimbursed for those swimmers who compete at the festival on the 7th July.
Can all swimmers who swam at the Nova Meet on Sunday please meet in VPLC reception at 6.40pm this Thursday (14th March), wearing a Club top and bringing any medals, for a Nova Meet group photo….hopefully outside VPLC.
Thanks, Head Coach Richard
