Land Training Thursday 7:15 to 8:00PM

A reminder to all A squad and B squad swimmers that your land training session is on a Thursday after your hour in the pool.

It is a great opportunity to improve your strength, flexibility and overall fitness to make you an even better swimmer.

Now that the clocks have changed we are able to go outside and use the Quarry for shuttle runs, circuits, team work and games.

Please ensure you wear appropriate footwear (running shoes) and that you are dressed for the weather (it is quite chilly out there at the moment even in the sun).

If you have any questions then please speak to Danny or Ian Latham.

Consent to Videoing

Videoing swimmers during training and competition is a useful aid in assisting swimmers to improve their stroke and techique.

Many club members have already completed and returned a consent form. If you think you might not have filled in a form or would like to update your consent, please download a form from the “Joining” tab of the website and return to Judith, Danny or Catherine.

Paralympic success for Shrewsbury swimmer

Gemma Almond, a club member until University at Swansea called, represented her country at the 2012 Paralympic Games.

Gemma trained with SASC for many years, showing a dedication to swimming not matched by many in the club.  Gemma was talent spotted at the age of 14.  She worked hard, and was rewarded by her success this summer.  She competed in the S10 category in the 200m IM, 400m free, 100m fly and 100m free.

Many congratulations to Gemma from the club and we wish her continued success.
