Trafford Borough ‘Time Trial’ Meet

Good Evening All,

For those of you already entered into this event, unfortunately, Swim Trafford have needed to postpone the gala until next week, now re-scheduled to Wednesday 2nd March, starting at 6pm and ending at around 8pm.  James Stannard passes on his apologies for this late alternation and hopes all of you that have entered are still able to attend.  If you’ve paid an entry fee and are unable to attend, contact details for James appear below.

On the plus side, it does allow for anybody wishing still to enter to do so.  A link to print off the entry form is given below.  It can be returned directly to James via email by Tuesday 1st March (pass any payment directly at the event).

Good luck to anybody taking part.
 A Message from James Stannard (Head Coach at Swim Trafford – the borough performance swimming squad), who is arranging to take a team from the Borough clubs to compete in the regional Micro League during 2016 (a little like a mini-Arena League).  Opportunity to compete in a team event.
Good Evening All,
Please find attached an entry form for the time trial event we will be holding at the end of February
The event will be for swimmers aged 12 years and under who will be eligible to compete in this year’s Micro League. From the results at the time trials I’ll register swimmers with the league and pick the team for the first meet in March.
I’ve put an entry fee of £5 for all four races which is to be used to help cover the costs of competing in the league.
Any questions please let me know. Entries can be returned to me by email or to the Swim Office at Stretford (for info., this is located up the stairs and rather than turn left to the cafe, turn right.  You will find the swim office on the right hand side and a letter box to post entries).
Many Thanks
James

Exciting new adult and junior masters swimming sessions Saturday afternoons

The club is pleased to announce the launch of two new sessions – a junior masters session (aged 12+), and an adult masters group (18+).

The sessions will be held between 3.30 – 5.00 pm, starting from next Saturday February 27th at Stretford Sports Village.

Both sessions will give teenagers and adults the chance to enjoy coached sessions that aim to be social and fun as well as focusing on personal fitness goals or stroke development.  Please note that we split the pool so that the juniors and adult masters will swim separately.

For the junior masters sessions anyone aged 12 and over is welcome including people new to the club.  The session will cater for our existing older swimmers when they still want to swim for fitness or fun, but no longer want to train to compete.  We are also hoping to atttract back some swimmers who may have left for the above reasons.  We are also keen to recruit new swimmers – these may be older and have been put off from joining the club because they are not strong enough swimmers to join our current main group.  Please spread the word around friends and encourage them to come down and give it a try.

The adult masters will have the lanes tailored so that everyone can be grouped by experience or ability.  Please talk to the coaches about what you are looking to achieve, so that they can help.

The cost of the session is either our normal membership fee and the ASA Membership plus £5 a session (either poolside or standing order).  Alternatively, we are also offering a new Pay As You Go scheme where new or returning members can pay only the ASA fee plus £6,50 a session.

Finally, we will soon be offering new Aqua sports activities for anyone aged 12 and over and will keep you posted.  These activities could include things such as open water swimming, wake boarding, canoeing.  The group will be asked to input into the decision making process on what activities are chosen.  We are hoping to subsidise these activities to help keep costs down.

Competition Event Update: 2015

The club has a busy run up to Christmas with a number of team and individual galas.

Club Championships on the 4/5/6 December. (See separate blog post for details).

Pointscore – the next two dates are Sunday 11th October and Sunday 15 November.

We have 4 club galas – our final competition in the Central Lancs League and 3 big Arena league meets. The Arena league galas are our biggest team galas of the year with ages ranging from U11 to the over 16 Open age group. If you are selected for these please can you reply quickly to the invitation so we can finalise the line ups.

There are also 2 individual galas – the Greater Manchester Autumn Meet in Wigan and the Trafford Borough Christmas Sprint Meet at Stretford. We would encourage swimmers to enter the latter meet – details will be posted soon. This is good opportunity for swimmers to gain their first competitive experience, or for seasoned competitors to post some PBs. It is also the last opportunity to get Lancashire County Entry Times.
