It's a good job we can swim!

A massive well done to all our swimmers who competed at the Coventry and District Relays! Yet again this year our Sharks swimmers and parents battled through stormy weather even to get to the pool in Coventry. We are very proud that our club was able to field an A and a B team in all 4 age groups. It is a great testament to our squad structure that we have such a depth of talented swimmers from Junior Reception through to Masters.

We had 19 podium places including 5 first place trophies; a special mention to all our 9 year olds who all came home with a medal. Well done Lizzie, Molly, Ellie, Heidi, Abi, Gracie, Olivia, Jess, Alistair, Oscar, Henry, William, Edan, Alexander, James, and Ryan! 

It was certainly a good job that we are swimmers…… some of us almost needed to swim back home through the floods.
Great racing in Derby

Well done to all our swimmers who competed at the Long Eaton Meet on Sunday.  There were lots of medals won and new pbs were set.  Special congratulations go to Georgina for achieving her first regional qualifying time.

Wow! What a fantastic weekend at the Soundwell Meet

What a fantastic weekend our Sharks have just had at the Soundwell Meet. Lots of happy faces, pbs, County QTs and what super trophies!  Full results will follow shortly.

A special thanks to our coaches Lisa, Chloe, Yvonne and Kim who looked after all those swimmers on poolside, and Bethan, Helen, Jackie & Catherine officating.

Rugby SC Gala

A great 1st place result for Stratford Sharks last night in Rugby with our Juniors following in the footsteps of the Senior's recent success. Despite a few DQ's and speeding tickets Sharks were the stand out club.

Thanks to Chloe, Josh & Anna on poolside, and to Ali, Ian & Craig in their whites.

This success is no coincidence and is down to the hard work and commitment of the swimmers and coaches in the Junior group.

Well done all!

Midland Short Course Championship 2015
Well done to all our swimmers who swam at the Midlands Short Course Championships in Nottingham this last weekend. More club records were set and it was a great performance from Ailsa who qualified for the finals of the 50 free, setting a new pb!


A big shout out has to go to Dirk and our Sharks relay teams of Sophie Wootton, Elinor Bird, Izzy Callaghan, Koumi Ikeda, and Seren Mahon – you did us proud!
