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

Head Coach Update

Bognor Regis Swimming Club has been running for over 50 years, and the success of the club is down to its members.

We are a competitive club, and our training is geared around this.  We work on a 16-week programme, stroke technique, turns, starts and finishes. 

As the swimmer’s progress and start to gain stamina and speed with the correct technique they move up the squads.  Minnows being our start out squad, Seahorses, Dolphins, Barracudas and Marlins.

Open Meets and local galas we attend regularly, here the swimmers often achieve personal best times and win medals or ribbons.  We also have inter club competition where the swimmers compete against each other in their age groups.

Our Vanessa Knight Memorial Open Meet, just before the May bank holiday is our club Open Meet where other clubs come to compete against other club swimmers for medals. This Open Meet is unique as it is a Licensed A, B, C grade meet.  This gives the opportunity for swimmers to achieve personal bests and win medals. 

Our coaches are qualified or working towards their qualification.  Everyone on poolside has a DBS check, and must regularly attend child protection seminars.

Sue Eason

Vanessa Knight Memorial Meet 2018 – Results

What a fantastic day of swimming at the VK meet on Sunday! Lots of medals and PB’s achieved.

I would like to thank all the swimmers, Coaches, Officials and parents for all their effort and enthusiasm at the Meet, without them it just wouldn’t happen.

The BRSC team, small though it is, did a phenomenal job at making sure everything ran smoothly.
Grateful thanks go to Mark Savill our Referee for the day and to Brian Smith from Brighton for all his valuable advice.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year and please watch this space as plans are afoot for Bognor to hold another Meet in March 2019. We know how you like our medals so there will be plenty there too!
Just Keep Swimming!!

Chair BRSC
