Back to normal - back to the routine
As we ease through 2022, we hope to see the back end of the pandemic with a gradual, cautious return to normality. Nevertheless, our No 1 priorty continues to be safety: yours and ours. The situation is being monitored carefully, following government and Swim England guidance.
In England, face coverings are no longer required by law. It is up to you where and when you want to wear one.
We are still headhunting a new club chairman. While the role is not regularly time-consuming, we need someone to lead the team and help Kirsty, Annika and others take the club forward. This involves liaising with internal and external stakeholders and ensuring all our members' best interests are at the fore. If you are able to assist, please email Cooky – email@example.com
Don't forget that our hunt for talented new divers at all levels is ongoing. If you are able to help us get the foot in the door at your local school to run a talent-testing programme, please email Kirsty - firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations to Justine and Camilla who have now completed their level 1 coaching qualification (theory and practical). You will start to see both of them more frequently on poolside, starting with the summer holiday courses.
Lastly for now, well done to our new divers of the term: Ava and Isaac. Both have impressed the coaches with their enthusiasm, focus and attitude at training, deservedly winning the termly accolade. Read about them - and the nominees - in the 'Divers of the Term' section.
Spring Club Competition
Thanks to everyone who took part in our spring club competition, the first internal meet we have been able to run for more than two
There was a good turnout across three-and-a-half hours of pool time, with a total of 73 divers competing across eight events.
For some, this was their first-ever competition while for others – notably some squad divers – it was good practice ahead of regional qualifiers.
Divers and parents in the first two sessions were also treated to dive shows from some of our skills, development, age group and elite junior divers.
The detailed results and a selection of photos from the meet can be found here. Also check out the 'Write-ups' section.
