This weekend 25 of our Elite and Junior squad swimmers headed for Ipswich for their Autumn Open meet. With November already upon us, swimmers training was transferring into some fast racing and improved race skills.
This is aimed at children between the age of 7 years and 12 years. Children who would like to join a competitive swimming group or who are already a member of a Club, but would like to try something a little different. The taster session (30 to 45 minutes) will be based on our Development Squad and Junior Squad sessions and be taken by our qualified coaches.
One month in to training this year, all the swimmers were ready to show off the skills they had been developing in training. The dives were already much safer and faster than last week at the Iceni Meet. The oldest swimmers competing were 12 years old, so it gave our young swimmers an ideal opportunity to gain gala and racing experience.
28 St Felix School Squad swimmers headed for Dereham for the season opener at the Iceni Meet 2013, including many swimmers who had never raced away from Southwold. This meet gave them an ideal opportunity to gain some early County qualifying times and good racing experiences.
Achieving swim21 accreditation enables clubs to help swimmers reach their full potential. swim21 is a planning tool, based upon the needs of swimmers, which strives to provide them with the best possible training environment. It provides protection for children, quality coaching and top training for swimmers.
swim21 club accreditation also bestows recognition from Sport England that the club is safe, effective and child friendly. All junior clubs gaining swim21 accreditation automatically receive Sport England’s Clubmark status.
The first event was the Open Water Championships at Rother Valley Country Park, where Thomas Every had qualified for his first National event after winning the East Region title in early July at Whittlingham Lakes, Norwich. The swim was a 2km lake swim in 22 degrees, which for Open Water proved to be a pleasant experience. After a very physical and demanding swim Thomas finished a very creditable 15th place, less than a minute behind the winner.
A squad of 31 swimmers have travelled to UEA, Norwich and Crown Pools, Ipswich to compete in the British Gas ASA Suffolk Championships during February and March. At Norwich, Suffolk joined with Norfolk swimmers and competed in the 800 & 1500m events with the 15 swimmers returning to Southwold with 4 Gold, 4 Silver and 1 Bronze medal and 11 Regional Age and Youth Qualifying Times.
