The latest bulletin inlcuded a report on the 2015 Zonals, which is also now on our Notice Board page, as well as a reminder about the Easy Fundraising initiative - details at the foot of the home page.
The archive of previous newsletters has been moved to the Headlines page (also available via the Notice Board button to the left). This now includes the bumper issue 10 from Summer 2014.

Payments for Galas
Where the club supports a gala and entries are invited from WSMSC swimmers, cheques should be made out to "WSMSC" please and not to the club hosting the gala. It is the norm that cheques are only banked either once full acceptance has been received that we have got our swimmers into the meet or at the time of the meet itself. We don't bank cheques at the time you submit your entry in case of rejections/scratches.

Sets for school
Millie has created training sets for club swimmers in
school years 5/6 that go swimming with their school and need something
more challenging than the leisure centre teacher/school teacher can
provide. This is available on the
VIDEO STROKE ANALYSIS
Over the coming months the clubs coaches will be videoing swimmers to
help them improve their stroke technique, turns and starts.
Video analysis is being used by more and more clubs as an aid to
coaching and teaching as it allows the swimmer to see exactly what they
are doing correctly and incorrectly.
If you would rather that your child is not videoed you should email
Rachel Aldington to let her know, if you have any queries on
this please email the club chairman,
