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!
