Promising Season start for Seaclose Swimmers at Southampton Open
Alex Stewart and Megan King started the seasons medal tally for Seaclose swimming Club last weekend at the James Moreno Open Meet at Southampton.
Alex picked up a gold medal in the 400m Freestyle event in a time of 4 min 28.65 sec and also finished fifth in the 50 and 100m freestyle events. Megan meanwhile captured Gold in the 50m Freestyle event in a time of 27.93 sec along with bronze medals in both the 50m and 100m backstroke events.
There were also some well deserved personal best performances from Lelayna Blacklock, Grace Bolland, Eleanor King and James Stirling. Coach Val Gard said ‘this was a great start to what looks like being a great year’.
As you will remember the fees for squad sessions changed from September 2015 and many members have yet to change them.
Please can you do this ASAP and let us have the difference in fees for September and October (if paid so far this month) as the club has to cover the increased pool hire/ASA fees etc.
Pre-Senior Squads: £24
Senior Squads: £25
County and Regional Call Ups for Seaclose Swimmers.
A season of hard work in getting to the top of the rankings has been rewarded for Seaclose Swimmers Megan King and Abigail Lacey with selection for the Hampshire County Team.
Both Megan and Abi have been selected in the Hampshire ASA team to compete at the prestigious Inter-County Championships at the Ponds Forge pool complex in Sheffield on Sunday 18th October. They will be part of a 24 member team and will compete in the top division of the inter-counties which will be screened live on the ASA website. Abigail has also been selected for the South East Schools Division team and will compete in the 200m back, 200IM and the relays at the English National Secondary schools final in Leeds on 3rd and 4th October.
Good luck at both events girls, as Dave would say Go,Go,Go!
As a thriving club we are looking to expand our resources and volunteers in order that we can keep running successful championships, club galas etc. Would any parents/relatives/friends of swimmers be interested in becoming a timkeeper? Our local HCASA co-ordinator will be running a course in August or September this year and we would like to be able to put forward a group to be trained as official timekeepers – not only would this help us at our own events we host, but when we send teams to the mainland we are often asked for officials. Also, as many are unaware of this fact, at some mainland open meets when a certain number of swimmers attend, one of the conditions is that we provide an official of sorts – a timekeeper will suffice for this purpose.
This would be a great way for parents to be involved with their children’s competitive swimming – please contact either Ben Gard on email@example.com or Julie Van der Helstraete on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add your name to the list and provide details of what this involves. This course will be funded by the club in exchange for volunteering your time back.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Ben & Julie
