See you tomorrow!

2017/18 season starts Friday!

We hope you are all having a lovely summer break!

Just a reminder that training restarts on Friday 1st September 2017 with our new timetable, so please check out the Training Times page to check when your squad will now be training. Please note, there is no morning training or Performance/Senior/Club Gym on this day.

Annual Club membership for the 2017/18 season of £25 is also due in September – this charge is applicable to any swimmer in Sharks squad upwards, including Masters, on September 1st.

Finally, all squad fees paid by Standing Order need to be paid in August as fees are calculated over 12 months. If, for whatever reason, you have not paid these fees in August you will be asked to pay this shortfall on return to training in September or the balance of the more expensive squad fees if paid by cheque/cash over 11 months.

For more details please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

In the boys category, eight-year-old Oscar Goldsmith was our youngest new record-holder, in the 50m Fly, while 11-year-old Jack Robinson gained a record in the same event.

12-year-old Rico Bringeman earned himself three more records in the 200m Freestyle and 100m and 200m Butterfly, with Edvards Millers breaking the 30 second mark in the 50m Freestyle event in this age group.
