Club Championships -
15/16 November 2014
An email received over the summer suggested that entry to Somerset County Championships would necessitate that swimmers had swum faster than the qualifying times in a licensed meet.
This is a change from previous years. We have responded to this news quickly and decisively. We are in the process of applying for a license for club champs - this means that times swum will go onto the ASA rankings database, can be used for the Somerset entries and can be used to enter other licensed meets throughout the season.
Entry will be free - we want everyone to take part in as many events as possible to get rankings times.
Entry forms will follow but remember the dates/times:
Sat 15th Nov 12:00 to 20:00 and Sunday 16th 08:00 to 12:00 (all at Hutton Moor).
Morning training will NOT take place on the Saturday. Polo and normal squad training will take place on the Sunday evening.
ASA Aquazone online
Phase 1 of the online magazine for ASA Category 2 members aged 9-15 is now live, offering a news feed, interviews, competitions and more.
For details and how to sign up, please see this notice from the ASA (PDF).
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.
Parents are reminded that the annual costs of running the club are spread across 12 monthly fees. The current fees at the moment are pre-development £44 per month; development £46 per month; potential and performance £50 per month. Details are published on the Club Fees page.
