Nuneaton Open

Some really good swims on the first day at Nuneaton including more Midland District times.

You can view the live results here.

New Blocks! Thanks to Stratford Town Trust

With a brand new pool on the horizon none of the committee or coaches liked the idea of re-using the old starting blocks in the new pool. So with this in mind, I made a funding application to Stratford Town Trust back in January for brand new blocks.  I am delighted to tell you that the Trustees have been kind enough to award the club the full grant of £6,108  which will largely meet the cost of the new blocks. I hope the swimmers will enjoy using the new blocks and all squads will benefit from them.

Our sincere thanks go to the trustees of Stratford Town Trust, who continue to support the club and remain an important partner in our development.

Arena League Rd 3

A massive congratulations to all the swimmers, coaches and supporters who combined tonight in Leamington to produce a great win in the last round of the National League at Mike's last Team gala.

A sad night for the club at least ended on a real high with our first win in Division 1 for many years, great racing and a cracking atmosphere.

National Arena League

Sharks came a hard fought fourth place last night in a pretty tough opening round to this years competition.  There was some great swims and 10 first places.  Highlight of the evening for all the swimmers was surely Adam Peaty in the 100m breaststroke, lots of autographs were sought!

New ASA Competition Structure

The ASA have just released this document which provides information relating to the new Swimming Competition Structure applicable from 2015.  Counties & Regions need to fully apply this by 2016 at the latest, but preferably from 2015.

The Warwickshire Counties will be in March as in previous years but it is not yet known what the conditions will be.

The document is quite detailed so a quick summary of the main points.

  • Counties, Regionals, Nationals will revert to Age at 31st December in year of competition.
  • There will British Nationals taken from the rankings, those not in the top 24 for an event will be eligible to compete in Home Nation nationals if they have the QT's.
  • Regular Open Meet age dates will be down to the promoter who can have them as 'Age on Day' or end of year.
  • Minimum age band for Regionals will be 11/12 and for Counties 10/11, QT's will be on these joint age bands.
  • This means those still 9 at the 31st December of that year will no longer compete at the Counties in Jan/Feb.
  • The new ASA Winter National SC competition can only be qualified for through L2 SC times, no LC conversions.
Fantastic Junior League Final

A massive well done to all the swimmers who swam in the Nuneaton Junior League Final last night at Wolverhampton.  We came 5th overall due to some fantastic swimming and support. Special thanks to all the parents and supporters who cheered every Shark and to all those poolside for all their hard work.

This was the result of a long seasons hard work and the results were there for all to see, now the hard part is to do it again every year! Individual race results (about 50% PB’s on the night!) are on the web site and full results will be up later when the splits are sorted.

Final results were:   Northampton A 221, Boldmere A  218, City of Coventry 191, Leicester Sharks A 165, Stratford Sharks 144 Leamington Spa 131
