Welcome to the Club!

Last night we welcomed eight new Sharks to the Club at our latest Sharks Information evening. It was lovely to see these youngsters with their parents starting their time with Boston Amateur Swimming Club.

These evenings are held at the end of each Council’s Swimming Lesson terms for swimmers who have completed their Grade 5 and Stage 6 courses in Dolphins! We know we have even more swimmers starting soon so here is some information for you.

At this standard, you will need to join Boston Amateur Swimming Club. There is a annual membership fee, currently £25, which covers registration and insurance with the national governing body, Swim England.

Sharks meet four times a week in the Geoff Moulder Training Pool:

  • Tuesday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Thursday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Friday 4pm until 4.45pm
  • Satuday 8am until 8.45am

All of these sessions are available to you, and you don’t need to book in advance.

As well as the joining fee, each squad has a monthly fee. Currently, for Sharks, this is £28. We prefer if this is paid by Standing Order (forms are available from the Coaching Staff), but can be paid by Cash or Cheque – if this is the case please put in a sealed envelope clearly marking the swimmers name.  You can also set up a standing order through online banking if you have that facility, for details of this please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

For new Sharks, providing you have joined the Club, you can start training with us on Tuesday 13th February 2018. We look forward to seeing you then!

Make sure you claim those records!!

Well done to everyone who has competed over the last two weekends of the 2018 Lincolnshire County Championships. By my calculations, and with one session still to take place, the Club’s current medal haul is as follows:

  • GOLD – 26
  • SILVER – 33
  • BRONZE – 35

Having competed so well at the County Championships as well as recent long course meets in Sheffield and Coventry, now is a good time to remind you all about the Club Record process.

After each competition, take a look at the Club Records page here on the website. If you have beaten your age group time, fill out an online Club Record form and the Records Officer will update the records. Please remember it is your responsibility to claim the records. If you don’t claim the record, it won’t be recorded.

For more information on how to claim records, speak to Katy Roberts.

Missing watch 

If you have seen a pink digital watch in the female changing room this evening, please can you message the club. A swimmer has mislaid one tonight. 

Open Meet withdrawals

If coaches are aware of withdrawals to Boston Open Meet please can you let us know as soon as possible, preferably by Friday 17th November at the latest.

You can do this by emailing bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com with the completed  Boston Open Meet withdrawals form.

Any on the day withdrawals must be made by coaches or the club representative at the start of the warm-up in each session. Completed forms should be given to the meet promotor or meet recorder via the computer desk.

Your assistance with this is greatly appreciated due to the number of swimmers we have entered in this Meet.

Raffle and tombola prizes needed!

We are now less than two weeks away from the Boston Open Meet, which will be held at Grantham’s Meres Leisure Centre, on November 18th and 19th.

As always, we will be needing your help in putting together the raffle and tombola stall! Please can you help by donating some prizes for these stalls.

Please whatever you can spare, even if its only small, you can give it to Michelle Ingamells or one of the Committee members at the pool, or contact Michelle via the website or Facebook page.

Your help is gratefully received!
