City of Salford Summer Spectacular Open Gala – July 2016

Message from your Head Coach

As a club I want us to compete at Galas throughout the year. Team Galas, Open Meets, Pointscore. All of these are good race practice and they give coaches and swimmers a chance to see how far people have progressed. With this in mind I would like to invite swimmers to represent Stretford ASC at the City of Salford Summer Spectacular Open Meet. The dates are Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July. I will be there myself and hopefully we will have a large team of swimmers there to support each other and build on our fantastic team spirit!

City of Salford Summer Spectacular Open Meet entry form

Entry forms will also be available at the club desk or from coaches and need to be back with payment ASAP – Sunday 29th May at the latest!

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to get in touch – or 07895268043

Tesco Bag Pack Fundraising Event

Many thanks to everyone who turned up to help bag packing at Tesco on Sunday.  It was a great fundraising effort raising a fantastic £458.19 for the club.

A massive thank you to Gill Ramsey for organising the bag pack, and for being there for the duration of the bag pack event.

Events like this are invaluable in helping Stretford ASC purchase new equipment and in keeping costs down, benefiting everyone.

Please watch out for the next event – a little bit of everyone’s time makes a massive difference to your club.



New date for Pointscore – 8th May 2016

Due to the varying Easter half term holiday’s, the Pointscore was rescheduled from 24th April to 8th May.  This means you’ve still got until Friday 29th April to submit your entry forms!  The entry form can be found in the link below.  Alternatively, you can complete an entry form at the club desk on Sunday, Tuesday or Friday.
