Last weekend (10th-12th April 2015) a small team of 15 swimmers headed to the City of Cambridge SC ‘Last Chance Open Meet’. This meet was our 11-14 year olds final chance to qualify for the Summer Regional Championships that take place in May. We achieved 12 new/improved Regional times this weekend, winning 28 gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze medals from only 80 swims.

St Felix School SC have now achieved 109 Regional Qualifying Times this year from 16 individual swimmers. This is an improvement upon last year and demonstrates the emerging depth within the squad programme.

Swimmers from St Felix School Swimming Club have returned from this years’ Championships with an amazing tally of 68 Gold, 42 Silver, 33 Bronze, over 100 top six finishes and 77 Regional qualifying times, which was great result for the young squad of swimmers and higher than last years’ achievements.

The squad of 33 swimmers aged from 9 years to 18 years competed at Norwich and Ipswich against clubs from around the County, some of which had up to 90 swimmers in their teams. To finish 3rd in the Top Club competition is a credit to swimmers, parents and coaches within the Club and they would like to thank Two Magpies Bakery, Sharprint Ltd, Hammond Land Rover and several parents for their sponsorship of the new starting blocks that have helped improve the squads racing.

On Sunday we held our Easter Improver Gala. Held at the end of each term, it gives our younger swimmers the opportunity to show off the skills they have developed throughout the term in a racing environment. It also gives them confidence and experience for when they are older.

This term we had over 80 entries from Leiston & District SC, Beccles Kingfishers SC and St Felix School SC. The afternoon was a great success with all swimmers trying their best + enjoying themselves!

Results can be found on the results page or by clicking here

Thank you to all the parents, junior/elite squad swimmers and teachers/coaches for helping on the day. Without your help these events would be impossible.

Technical infringements will be emailed out to individual clubs ASAP.

We hope to see you in the Summer term!

The Easter Holiday Timetable has been uploaded to the club documents page.

It has been decided to change the squads and training over the Easter Holidays, this will be on a trial basis but maybe implemented on a full time basis later in the year. The coaching team will monitor training and squads over the holidays and will meet before term starts.

The reason for the changes is to ensure that the pool is used to its full potential and to give everyone an opportunity to increase their training where possible during the holidays.

If you have lost the information on squad changes please email your coach.

Last Sunday (22nd March) saw 26 St Felix swimmers head to Ipswich for the last day of the Suffolk County Championships 2015. Excitement levels were high within the team. The schedule had the 400m freestyle events in the morning then the ‘skins’ event and relays in the afternoon. 22 St Felix swimmers took part in the 400m, 18 of those swims were PB’s and 8 swims were Regional times. The team won 5 golds, 4 silvers and 2 bronzes from this event.

The afternoon started with the ‘skins’ event where 8 swimmers race 50m freestyle with 1minute rest between, the slowest being eliminated each round until two swimmers are left. Josie Blades finished 2nd in most rounds placing her in the final. Being runner-up was not an option so she finished in 27 then swam an awesome final 50m freestyle to win the female ‘skins’ event and receive £50. Finally was the relays! Our 11/12 boys and girls teams had a great afternoon of racing. The boys won gold in the 4x50m freestyle and silver in the 4x50m medley, while the girls won silver in both relays. Our 9/10 girls team all swam exceptionally well to win a bronze medal in both of their relays. Finally our open girl’s medley team won bronze in the 4x50m medley relay. An excellent display of team work and support!
