The relay teams for the County Championships have now been finalised.
Closure of Fareham Leisure Centre:
As you may be aware, FLC is about to start a modernisation programme, during which both pools are due to be closed. The good news is that one of the pools will always be available and in addition, a covered temporary pool will be provided immediately outside the centre, which will have toilets, changing facilities and seating for 30 spectators. The temporary pool means that there will be minimal disruption to the learn to swim programme and swim clinic. However, due to the size of this temporary pool, we have decided that for sharks and above it will be more appropriate to relocate all their sessions to our other pools, as well as utilising Locks Heath pool. We have tried where possible to keep the times and days of sessions as they are currently, however, given the number of sessions which needed to be rearranged, inevitably it has been necessary to change days for some squads.
Below is the revised timetable for the closure of the main pool from 31st March until 29th June. If you have any questions about it, please contact either your squad rep, the Head Coach or myself.
Whilst we are confident that the revised timetable will work, it may be necessary after the first few weeks to fine tune it to iron out any un-envisaged problems.
It’s hard to believe that it was just a week ago that we held our first winter open meet. Based on the format we used for our last summer meet we had enormous interest from local clubs. As it is held so early in the year it is the ideal opportunity for swimmers to achieve fast enough times to enter the County Championships in March. Because of the amount of interest it unfortunately meant a number of our younger swimmers were unable to enter as their entry times were not fast enough.
For those Nomads swimmers who did qualify however, they did not disappoint, achieving many personal best times and medals. Medals were awarded for the first three places in each event and each age group. In total our swimmers finished with a staggering 45 gold, 29 silver, and 30 bronze medals. Winning medals is not the only measure of success in competitions, swimming faster than you have ever done before is also a great achievement. In this area Nomads swimmers excelled by gaining an enormous total of 220 personal best times. Special mention should go to Ellie Sproul and Kaedan Stander each of whom attained 8 personal bests.
Well done to all our swimmers and a special thanks to all the parents who helped out in every area, without their help we would not have had the very successful event it turned out to be. Let’s look forward now to our summer open meet in June.
