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!
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 – firstname.lastname@example.org or 07895268043
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.
Stretford ASC will be having their next bag pack event at Tesco Stretford Extra on Chester Road, Sunday 24th April 2016, 1.00pm to 5.00pm.
