St Felix Swimming Club sent its biggest ever squad of swimmers to this year’s Swim England Suffolk County Swimming Championship in Norwich & Ipswich over four weekends in January and February. The swimmers aged 10 – 18 years old competed against other swimmers’ other clubs from all over Suffolk. The Championship is the start of the competitive swimming season and the culmination of many weeks of hard training from the swimmers, planning from the coaches and support from their parents.
The swimming club has a pathway from Learn-to-swim, through Development Squads, to the high-level performance squads who compete at county, regional, national and international level. Swimmers come from local community as well as from further afield. The club is actively seeking sponsorship and if you feel that you may be able to help please contact SPurchase@stfelix.co.uk. If you have any swimming enquiries please also contact Sue on that email.
For some swimmers it was their first experience of taking part in a big competition and these swimmers showed determination to try their best and improve on their Personal Best Times, but for the more experienced swimmers they were chasing medals and Regional Qualifying Time’s.
