We are delighted to tell you that SASC have been successful in bidding to National Lottery Sport England for a grant of nearly £10,000. The money is to be spent on extra coaching, pool hire and off site aqua fun activities such as diving, open water swimming and paddle boarding for our older swimmers (12+) and to help us create a Junior Masters at the club, where teenagers can swim for fun and fitness as well as compete. In addition there’s money to double our adult coaching sessions and start a possible Adult Masters section. There is also money put aside for an underwater camera to help swimmers further develop their technique.
If the aqua sports programme goes well, we can expand it to include younger swimmers too, so watch this space!
The process of recruiting two new part time coaches to lead on the project has commenced and if all goes well we expect to have new coaches in place by the end of October 2015 .
We are really keen to involve as many parents and swimmers in this exciting new project so please feel free to get in touch with your ideas, suggestions or offers of help to Jo Moores at email@example.com or 07709 284 445 or ask at the desk for more information.
Congratulations to all Stretford Swimmers, who achieved a Regional time, County time, Personal Best or participated in their first competitive event, at the Greater Manchester Age Group Gala at MAC (11 and 12 January 2014).
It will be up and running soon
