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.

Here’s what our swimmers and parents got up to over the Christmas holidays.
The 12 Swims of Christmas
First up was the 12 Swims of Christmas on December 23rd. Swimmers from all squads, from the littlest to the biggest took part in our 12 Swims, where each line of the traditional Christmas carol was given a bit of a twist to include racing starts, butterfly, tumbleturns, mushroom floats, bombing etc.
Here are some key (and exciting) dates for this Christmas and over the coming year for your diaries.
This does not include upcoming Meets and Galas, which will be updated in the new year!
Friday December 23rd 2016:

Sunday January 1st 2017

So, the swimming season ended and a new one is about to begin. There have been lots of changes this season to the club, some highs, some lows…but mostly highs! We saw some great swims this season from our members, a positive commitment to the club and their own personal ongoing development, we can be very proud of all of them.
Last month the club celebrated the achievements of all the swimmers who took part in the Junior Club Champs and the Long Distance Champs on the 9th July, which took place at the club’s home pool at the Arena in Bognor Regis.
Summer swimming commences tonight and runs for three weeks through August.
There will be a flat rate charge of £6.50 per swimmer per week payable to a committee member on poolside. The more swims you have the better value it is!
The final week of August there will be a break for all before normal squad swimming resumes on September 1st.
Please ensure you have paid at the beginning of each week if you wish your child to be able to swim.
The dates and times for our summer swimming sessions are for all squads and will be led by head coach, Sue Eason.
Aug 2nd, 3rd, 4th – 6.00 to 7.30
Aug 9th, 10th, 11th – 6.00 to 7.30
Aug 16th, 17th, 18th – 6.00 to 7.30
What a fabulous days swimming and what a fantastic turn out. It was great to see so many clubs today at our VK Meet, and very proud we are of all the great swims that took place today.
We would like to thank all the swimmers, judges, officials and volunteers who worked so hard to make the day a success. Also, many thanks to all the parents who came to support their children.
In total there were there over 300 swimmers from 18 clubs, with 1262 individual swims! 23 event records were broken. Shiverers Swimming Club of Hove took 12 of these. We would also like to congratulate Shiverers who have retained the club trophy, well done!
