So, this years Vanessa Knight Memorial Open Meet was without doubt our best yet. Despite one or two hiccups at the beginning (there always are), races ran on time, most swimmers were where they were supposed to be, and even though it was hot, hot, hot..every one had a great time.
Well done to everyone who took part in our ASA Level 1 Coaches course during May, at our home pool, the Arena in Bognor Regis. This was a very well attended course, with many of the trainee coaches coming from all over the country, as far away as Scotland and apparently, even the UAE overseas. They all showed great enthusiasm and commitment, and enjoyed their time at BRSC.
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!

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.
