Stretford ASC Club Records 30.08.16

Stretford has a lot of competitions through the year but so far only one – Club Champs – has a set of club records for swimmers to aim at. We have decided to establish this set of records for all age groups to recognise fast swimming and offer target times for those who want extra motivation to work hard. These records go from 7 years of age right up to the open (18+) age group and the age group relates to the swimmer’s age on the day they race. Record keeping began in January 2016 so there are many records still to be set. Times will be recorded whenever anyone swims under the Stretford name.

Fun Gala 15 July 2016 – Encouraging new swimmers to join Stretford ASC

We would like to invite all swimmers who train at the Sunday sessions 4:30-5:30 and 5:30-6:30 to a Fun Gala on Friday 15th July.  This gala has been designed to enable those individuals who have Swim Well lessons the opportunity to take part in a fun but competitive gala.  It also allows them to swim and compete alongside the club swimmers who are of similar abilities.

Misha is trying to improve and develop a smoother transition between the Swim Well sessions and the club sessions, if they wish to progress. If you are interested in taking part in the Fun Gala then please email Misha with your child’s name, age, time they swim and their teacher’s name to before the 8th July. You will later receive a conformation email with further details of the event.

Please note, that due to the gala taking place on the 15th July there will be no training session that evening. 

If any of the older swimmers or parents wish to help out with the running of the gala it would much appreciated. Please contact Misha either in person or via email.
