Dates for your diaries

Dates for your diary:-

N and D Championships are at Sunderland on the 7th, 8th,28th of February and 1st of March 2015 Those swimmers who have qualified for these have been notified and their entries already submitted.

7th and 8th March 2015 there is a development gala hosted by Derwentside Amateur Swimming Club at Stanley. Because this is a development gala if it is oversubscribed then the faster swimmers will be rejected. This will be an excellent opportunity for some of our younger swimmers.

29th March 2015 we have been invited to an Invitational Gala hosted by Tynedale Amateur Swimming Club at Hexham. Some excellent swims available at this gala that we attend every year and suitable for all ages.

18th and 19th April 2015 another really good gala run by South Tyneside Swim Team at the new pool at Haven Point and suitable for all of our swimmers except the very fastest (watch out for the upper cut off times)

These galas will be advertised on the noticeboard at the bottom of the stairs and the sooner you get your names down the more likely you are to get a swim.

Saturday Morning Training will be on for the following dates:-

January 24th, January 31st, February 14th and February 21st

Saturday sessions run from 730am until 9am and cost £2 which you pay on the poolside, they are open to all members of the Competitive Section (and the three ladies who train with us on a Wednesday night)
