NHS Test and Trace
With the introduction of the NHS track and trace app the leisure centres are requesting that anyone that attends the centre scans in using the QR code.

There is information on the Everyone Active website which states “From 24th September all Everyone Active centres will be operating NHS Test and Trace, as per Government legislation. When visiting our centres, you will need to scan the NHS QR code posters“

This only applies to swimmers aged 16+ as well as volunteers and coaches.

PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE APP https://covid19.nhs.uk/



Congratulations and well done


Well done and Thank you to Veronica Ristov, Tracy Pearce, Lisa Mitchell and Jen Morrison who all qualified as Swim England Team Managers for the club during lockdown. These qualifications allow for supporting the coaches and swimmers and parents at Training Sessions/ Open Meets/ Competitions and Camps.


September Timetable UPDATED
 *** Updated 07/09/2020 ***

BLUE and PURPLE Bubbles - from Monday, 14th September your sessions will be 2 hours 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm at SLC.

Due to some changes at the Leisure Centres we need to make some timetable changes from September 1st. We are pleased to also be able to increase the amount of swim time for many of the bubbles as we are now aiming to switch to having more sessions run as single lanes (Swim England advice changed in August to allow this)

It is important that all swimmers stick to the rules and guidelines we have in place to ensure all sessions remain safe and productive. Thanks to our Covid volunteers for helping us with managing the sessions during this time.

With swimmers fitness improving over this month we believe that swimmers will be ready for additional swim time from September.

Junior Captains 2020


The Junior Captains and Vice Captains are chosen by the Assistant Head Coach,  their dedication, approach to the squad training programme, attitude to their peers and to the coaches are all considered when making this difficult choice. Whilst there is no NJL this year the role of our Junior Captains and Vice Captains is still important. They help to support our coaches at other meets and act as a role model to younger swimmers. They will also be able to play a part at our open evenings.


Our Junior Captains and Vice Captains for 2020 are....


Captains:  Isobel Greenall & Benji Elliott




Vice Captains: Will Payton & Serena Newell



CONGRATULATIONS!


West Midlands 2020 Qualifiers
We have swimmers within the club who sadly missed the opportunity to compete at the West Midlands Regional Championships this year. Pools were unfortunately closed before the end of the qualifying window, which prevented some swimmers from achieving their time, despite being so close. We would like to congratulate swimmers who have achieved this despite not being able to compete.

Leah Bowen, Isabelle Callaghan, Dan Cox, Ellie Deaner, Harvey Flint, Ellie Harsant, Cassie Lea, Lauren Maher, Andrew Morley, Lewis Morrison, Becca Morrison, Serena Newell, Will Payton, Rhys Power, Alistair Ristov, Connor Silvester, Owen Lawton and Eleanor Vickers. 

It is such a shame the swimmers won’t get to compete this year - especially those that qualified for the first time. Keep chasing your goals swimmers!!!

What a fantastic achievement for them all! 👏👏👏





Message from our Head Coach
Team Sharks,

As you can all imagine I and the rest of Team Sharks are gutted about having to suspend training for the time being to make sure everyone stays safe/ healthy etc.

So this does not mean the end of the Team! We will be cancelling Land Training tonight (for the Performance Squads) so we will be 6-8 pm in the pool sessions (our last session). Please remember to follow the instructions that we have emailed out previously. So you are probably thinking what next's for us as a club? So here is what we will be doing.....

To keep the routine of our swimmers we are currently putting together activities which consist of fitness activities (done every day) fun quiz's / challenges/nutrition knowledge and mindful techniques to keep everyone on track for when we get back into the pool. This will all be done remotely of course and we want it to be as positive as possible and support everyone as much as we can. This will be done on a week by week basis.

If any swimmer has left their net bags at the centres please can these be taken home this evening and all equipment is washed and cleaned and ready for when we get back to it.

Please keep an eye on your emails as I will be emailing out soon on details to help us all.

Stay safe and healthy.

Kim Mortimer, Head Coach


Club Update - All Training Suspended
We emailed earlier in the week with the hope to remain open with some constraints but with the advice yesterday from Swim England and the Government announcement this evening about schools, we are now taking the difficult decision to stop our training sessions until it is safe to re-open. We will monitor the advice during our period of closure and seek to re-open as soon as we can.

The last training session will be Thursday evening, 19 March.

As a group of trustees and coaches, we have worked so hard this week to try and do the right thing for the club and our members and to stay open as long as possible.

During this period of uncertainty we hope all members and their families stay safe. We will remain in contact and we look forward to seeing you all at the pool as soon as possible.
