VK Open Meet 2020 Update


As a club, as I’m sure with others there was a strong desire to keep everything going including training and our Open Meet VK 2020.
Over the last few days guidance from Swim England as well as other guidance from the Government we have considered what to do next.
Safeguarding is and always will be at the heart of what we do as a club and this extends past the swimmers and includes coaches, parents and officials.
I have therefore decided to cancel the VK 2020 Open Meet, and at the moment it will not be re-scheduled.
I wish every club and their members our best wishes during these unprecedented circumstances, stay safe and we will see you for VK 2021.

Regards
Andy Wilson
Chair, Bognor Regis Swimming Club

Littlehampton Splash into 2017

Congratulations to all our swimmers who competed in the Littlehampton Splash into 2017 Open Meet on Sunday 8th January at the Arun Leisure Centre in Bognor.

Despite some tough competition, our swimmers did a fantastic job. Every single swimmer achieving a Personal Best. This was a great result, as for some of our younger swimmers it was their very first Gala. They should all be enormously proud of themselves.

LSC Easter Open Meet

A great set of results from all of our swimmers. Every swimmer swam at least one new personal best (PB) time (which is classed as your best time in the last year).

32 out of 47 swims = 68% of swims were PBs, compared with the overall meet PB rate of just 57%.  The 3 DQs would have been PBs too and would have brought that up to 74%.

Congratulations to Tom who achieved his second Automatic Regional Qualifying Time in his 100m breaststroke, winning Gold in a new Event Best Time of 1:24.38. Tom also won Gold in his other 3 events – 200 IM, 50 free and 50 fly.

Alys won Gold in her 100m butterfly, 200m butterfly and 200m individual medley, whilst Imogen won Gold in the 200m backstroke.

Silver medals were won by Amber in both the 100m and 200m butterfly, and by William in the 50m breaststroke.

Bronze medals were won by Daisy in the 50m breaststroke and by Alys in the 200m backstroke.

Well done everyone!

A huge thank you to Tina who helped with the swimmers all day poolside; to Darren Cowell who was a time keeper in sessions 2 and 3; and to Mark Webb and Martin Stone who refereed all day!
