Due to several swimmers competing in the Deepings Open Meet next weekend, there will be a couple of changes to training times on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday 4th October, there will be no Performance training from 12pm until 2pm. Instead any remaining squad swimmers not competing will train with Development/Seniors and Club from 11am until 12 noon.
On Sunday 5th October, the Performance/Development/Seniors session will be an hour from 1pm until 2pm.
Warm-ups for the session at Deepings are now available on the Deepings Swimming Club website. Session 1 and 2 on Saturday will be 1.30pm and 5.00pm starts, while Session 3, 4 and 5 on the Sunday, the warm-ups will be 8.30am, 1.00pm and 5.30pm.
The new season has started for Boston Amateur Swimming Club and the club’s young swimmers started where they left off with an emphatic win in the Fenland League competition.
Going into the fifth round, Boston was sitting top of the league, one point ahead of Wisbech and two points ahead of City of Peterborough A. The swimmers travelled to Bedford, where St Neots Swans hosted the Lincolnshire team, Chatteris and Bottisham.
Annual membership for all swimmers from Silver Squad upwards, including pay-as-you-go Masters, is now due. The fee for 2014/15 is £17.50.
You are also reminded that Standing Orders needed to be changed from September 1st. If you haven’t already done this, please change the fees with your bank and pay the shortfall as soon as possible. Charges can be found at http://bostonasc.wordpress.com/about/charges-201213/
The 2014 Winter Club Championships entry forms are now available.
This year, the Championships will be held over two weekends – 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th November – with the opportunity for our squad swimmers to compete in 100m, 200m and 400m races. Sharks and Silver squad swimmers also get a taste of competitive swimming with 25m races in all strokes and a 50m Freestyle event.
Due to a change in ASA conditions, no squad swimmer under the age of 10 years will be able to compete in 100m events other than 100m Individual Medley.
The competitions will start at 11am on the first three days, however the start time for the 9th November will be 1pm.
