Our mini league team recently travelled to Clydebank for round 2 of this years competition. We had a fantastic team performance which saw us finish in second place only 2 points behind M&B. Swimmers (and coaches) were delighted when they realised Ross Murdoch was there. Round 3 of this years competition will be held at the Waterfront on the 16th May. Good luck to everyone involved.
The weather was on our side tonight for our first training session at Gourock outdoor swimming pool, lets hope we have many more night like this one. Fingers Crossed!!
Our summer timetable commences on Monday 4th May 2015, the new calendar is available on the training timetable page.
One of our younger swimmers, Lucy Campbell, recently undertook a sponsored swim and raised money for the Schiehallion Unit at Yorkhill Childrens Hospital.
Lucy, who swims in Skills Squad, decided to try and raise money for the unit after seeing how well the hospital was caring for her wee cousin who is currently undergoing treatment there. She swam a total of 70 lengths in one session and raised a fantastic £1100. We’re sure you’ll all agree this was a brilliant effort.
Well done Lucy!
Congratulations to Joe Watt who won the silver medal in the boys 15year old 50m backstroke at the Scottish National Age Group Championships (SNAGS) in Aberdeen at the weekend. A fantastic achievement for Joe and it was great to see an Inverclyde swimmer on the podium.
Joe was joined at SNAGS by team mates Emily Lightfoot, Phoebe Kitchen, Lauren Macleay, Calvin Wardell and Matthew Garrity. It was a brilliant team performance over the 5 day competition with many personal bests.
Joe with a delighted Shirley
Due to poor ticket sales the date of the IASC race night has been changed from Saturday 18th April to Saturday 23rd May. Hopefully this date will suit people better. If anyone has bought tickets for the original date please let Sharon Lightfoot know if you can attend on the new date. Venue of Wemyss Bay Community Centre remains the same. If you can please support this event.
We are pleased to announce the website has been updated. Meet information has been uploaded onto the competitions page along with the Meet Entry Form. The form still has to be completed and given to the meet secretary along with the required fee.
