SWIMZI CLUB KIT

TEAM SHARKS

Great news, the Stratford Sharks Swimzi kit shop is now open for you to place your order, with some new items added including a performance hoodie and performance sweatshirt designed to match our team colours as worn by Adam Peaty and Team Roar in the ISL in the photos below. Most items will be delivered before Christmas but please be aware there are some items that aren't guaranteed Christmas delivery, however, can still be ordered for a January 2022 delivery

TO ACCESS THE NEW CLUB SHOP, CLICK BELOW:

>>> https://teamwear.swimzi.com/brand/stratford-sharks-s-c/ <<<

You will have until Midnight on Sunday 10th October 2021 to order your kit before the shop is closed. Please Note: Your order will not go into production until the shop is closed.

Orders placed after this time may delay the whole kit order and therefore will not be accepted. So to avoid disappointment, please place your order now:

SIZING
We advise you to check the sizing guide online but If you are still unsure, please email teamwear@swimzi.com with your measurements and we will try our best to advise. It may also be a good idea to ask other members who already have the kit item you wish to purchase.

THE WISH LIST
If you do miss the deadline, we strongly urge you to add items to your wish list. When you add items to the wish list the club total for that item will be updated. This will trigger a club shop to be opened when sufficient demand dictates for us to do so. It is within your interest to use this feature to make sure you get the products you want!

QUESTIONS/ ISSUES?
If you have any other questions or there seems to be a technical issue, please contact teamwear@swimzi.com


Well Done!

AUGUST TIMETABLE

 

 

Junior Captains 2021

 

The Junior Captains and Vice Captains are chosen by the coaching team. Swimmer's dedication, approach to the squad training programme, attitude to their peers and to the coaches are all considered when making this difficult choice. The NJL will be run virtually this year, during training sessions so the role of our Junior Captains and Vice Captains is still important. They help to support our coaches at other meets and act as a role model to younger swimmers. They will also be able to play a part at our open evenings.

Our Junior Captains and Vice Captains for 2021 are....


Captains:  Lucy Andrews & Keenan Stratford

Vice Captains: Dalton Lea & Elle Hazleton

 

CONGRATULATIONS!


 

CLUB CAPTAINS

In normal circumstances, we would have been competing in the National Arena League in the Autumn Short Course part of the season, but due to COVID this was not the case, and therefore we have not been able to present our Club Captains who would normally have led us in this league. Therefore we feel it is the right opportunity to present now leading into the new year of 2021.
So your new Club Captains for Season 2020-2021 are


 Daniel Cox and Abbie Wootton



Both swimmers have swum at National Level, Abbie for Triathlon and Daniel at Swim England - English Nationals. Both swimmers have a lot of competition and training experience as well as volunteering and supporting the younger swimmers of the club.

Well done to Abbie and Daniel who have shown great commitment to Team Sharks over the years and we look forward to continuing to give you both responsibilities throughout the remainder of the season

 

NHS Test and Trace
With the introduction of the NHS track and trace app the leisure centres are requesting that anyone that attends the centre scans in using the QR code.

There is information on the Everyone Active website which states “From 24th September all Everyone Active centres will be operating NHS Test and Trace, as per Government legislation. When visiting our centres, you will need to scan the NHS QR code posters“

This only applies to swimmers aged 16+ as well as volunteers and coaches.

West Midlands 2020 Qualifiers
We have swimmers within the club who sadly missed the opportunity to compete at the West Midlands Regional Championships this year. Pools were unfortunately closed before the end of the qualifying window, which prevented some swimmers from achieving their time, despite being so close. We would like to congratulate swimmers who have achieved this despite not being able to compete.

Leah Bowen, Isabelle Callaghan, Dan Cox, Ellie Deaner, Harvey Flint, Ellie Harsant, Cassie Lea, Lauren Maher, Andrew Morley, Lewis Morrison, Becca Morrison, Serena Newell, Will Payton, Rhys Power, Alistair Ristov, Connor Silvester, Owen Lawton and Eleanor Vickers. 

It is such a shame the swimmers won’t get to compete this year - especially those that qualified for the first time. Keep chasing your goals swimmers!!!

What a fantastic achievement for them all! 👏👏👏





Message from our Head Coach
Team Sharks,

As you can all imagine I and the rest of Team Sharks are gutted about having to suspend training for the time being to make sure everyone stays safe/ healthy etc.

So this does not mean the end of the Team! We will be cancelling Land Training tonight (for the Performance Squads) so we will be 6-8 pm in the pool sessions (our last session). Please remember to follow the instructions that we have emailed out previously. So you are probably thinking what next's for us as a club? So here is what we will be doing.....

To keep the routine of our swimmers we are currently putting together activities which consist of fitness activities (done every day) fun quiz's / challenges/nutrition knowledge and mindful techniques to keep everyone on track for when we get back into the pool. This will all be done remotely of course and we want it to be as positive as possible and support everyone as much as we can. This will be done on a week by week basis.

If any swimmer has left their net bags at the centres please can these be taken home this evening and all equipment is washed and cleaned and ready for when we get back to it.

Please keep an eye on your emails as I will be emailing out soon on details to help us all.

Stay safe and healthy.

Kim Mortimer, Head Coach


Club Update - All Training Suspended
We emailed earlier in the week with the hope to remain open with some constraints but with the advice yesterday from Swim England and the Government announcement this evening about schools, we are now taking the difficult decision to stop our training sessions until it is safe to re-open. We will monitor the advice during our period of closure and seek to re-open as soon as we can.

The last training session will be Thursday evening, 19 March.

As a group of trustees and coaches, we have worked so hard this week to try and do the right thing for the club and our members and to stay open as long as possible.

During this period of uncertainty we hope all members and their families stay safe. We will remain in contact and we look forward to seeing you all at the pool as soon as possible.

HELP NEEDED

CAN YOU HELP

WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS TO ASSIST WITH THE ADMINISTRATION RELATED TO GALAS AND FUNDRAISING

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING TEAM SHARKS
PLEASE CONTACT EITHER ONE OF THE COACHES
OR
veronica@teamsharks.com

 

POOLSIDE OFFICIALS

As a swimming club we need lots of volunteers throughout the club but we need committed support in one area in particular, Officials. We need officials for all team galas and we are expected to provide officials for Open Meets we attend as well. The more officials we have the better, we can then rotate the responsibility for team galas more fairly. Being an official also has big advantages on occasion, you get in for free, get refreshments and often a meal at Open Meets and you're that much closer to the action.

Contact our Officials coordinator on fixtures@teamsharks.com to get involved
