2019 was a great year for the club, with new coaches, club lifeguards, new committee and swimmers achieving county times. Half way through the year our home training pool ‘The Arena Sports Centre’ was refurb and new comfortable seating was provided.
During the year we attended various open meets, where our swimmers competed for the club with many achieving PB’s. This gave great aspiration for the swimmers to do well in their training and can’t wait to compete at their next meet.
As a team we invited to attend our 2nd Bonfire Gala where we competed against Littlehampton Swimming club. This is a novice gala held at Windlesham School in October, it encourages every eligible club swimmer to compete, regardless of age or ability. Most swimmers swim in 4 or 5 events which are 25m all strokes and have the opportunity to swim 50m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke and 50m Breastroke. As this is a teaching gala the swimmers are talked through the gala procedure for each stroke, including demos from senior swimmers. This a great event to introduce swimmers to competition. Our swimmer this year embraced the experience with them all gaining high placing and overall achievements.
Our Christmas fun swim at our last training session rounded off 2019 with all enjoying the music, large floats and determination to beat the inflatable!
