The Stockport Metro SC Long Course Meet on Saturday 13th April saw Shrewsbury swimmer Ellie Sykes achieve her first ever National Qualifying time!

Ellie has been a consistent feature at Midland Champs having qualified in each of the last 3 seasons, with 5 MDQT’s this season.  She swam a big personal best last October, where she was a mere 0.5 seconds off the 100m Breast mark to qualify for the season ending Nationals.  On the back of several hours of training week in, week out and a successful training camp in Majorca, she travelled to Stockport and beat her PB by nearly 2 secs, meaning she was well under the required mark. Massive congratulations from the whole club and let the road to the Nationals begin!

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.
