Will Slawson and Ffion Butler have both been selected onto the AASE (Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence) programme. This is a nationally recognised programme that provides the selected athletes, who are from a wide range of sports, with an NVQ at the end of the 2 year programme. Our swimmers have been invited onto it based on their continued sporting dedication and achievements on a National level. Well done to both.
Tom Piggott and Reilly Shanahan have both been invited to join the Home Nations Talent Programme for Wales. This is based upon the big improvements they both made over the last season in their training commitments and racing performances. They will now receive additional support from the Welsh ASA Disability team in the pursuit of their future goals to realise their full potential. Congratulations to both boys.
Could all swimmers who won trophies last year please engrave them and return to Lawson or Claire Goodall as soon as possible. Thanks.
Details are now available for the Shrewsbury Club Championships being held on 26th, 27th and 28th September.
Forms are to be returned to Danny, Judith, or Neil by Thursday 11th September. Entry forms cannot be accepted after this date.
Please ensure all trophies won at last year’s club championships have been engraved and are returned to Lawson Goodall as soon as possible and at the latest, at the Club Championships. This is to ensure that they are ready to be handed out to the new recipients at the club presentation evening later in the year.
Will Slawson has gained his first ever National Qualifying Time (NQT) in the 15/16yrs boys 200 Individual Medley. Competing at the City Of Sheffield Premier Meet at Ponds Forge at the end of March, amongst numerous events entered, Will dropped a 3 second personal best time to claim his QT for entry in the ASA Summer Nationals this July in Sheffield. Massive Congratulations to Will!!
As part of the club winning Energize Community Club of the Year we have been put through to a West Midland area competition. As a bit of background the organisers want to come and film the club ‘in action’. This will be taking place during the Wednesday night A squad session. This has been cleared with club/ASA welfare policy. However, if anyone does not want to be filmed they may want to miss this session and pick up another one in the week. Thanks.
Can all Squad swimmers and parents please note that the annual 2 week summer break will commence on MONDAY 5TH AUGUST 2013, with training re-commencing on MONDAY 19TH AUGUST 2013.
The last session on the evening of FRIDAY 2ND AUGUST will be from 5.30-7.30pm for all 3 competitive squads and will be in the form of team fun relays. Please make every effort to attend this last fun session at the end of this successful season!!!!
At 9.30am on Saturday 13th July 2013 swimmers from SASC will be starting a 24 hour swim at The Quarry Swimming Centre, Shrewsbury.
Swimming will take place downstairs in the Priory Pool. Shrewsbury Community Leisure Trust (SCLT) have kindly donated the pool time free of charge.
The event is being held primarily to raise funds for Cancer Research. There will also be some funds raised for the club.
There will be designated pool time for all swimmers; development squad, competitive squads, masters and parents.
Obviously such an event will need a lot of help from chaperones, publicity, fundraising, to lap counters!
A fundraising page has been registered and can be found at https://www.justgiving.com/SASC24hrswim/
All offers of assistance will be gratefully received no matter how small. Please contact Dawn Horswood at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to her directly at the swimming baths and find out how you will play your part.
