Club Championships 2017 Sunday 3rd December – 5pm Warm Up

Dear Swimmers and Parents

 

The format of the 2017 Competitive section Club Championships will be in the same format as used last year so that all Swimmers, including eligible swimmers from the Friday Evening Teaching Scheme, will be included. Due to the number of swimmers involved the events may have to take place over 2 evenings, BUT we aim to complete it on the 3 rd. All times on the night are final and binding’ 

 

In order to accommodate this there have to be specific criteria applied to the entrance of swimmers of certain ages and experience to named events. This approach enables swimmers to enter the most appropriate events for their age and ability. Where certain swimmers are recognised as falling between categories the Coach’s discretion will be applied. If swimmers or their parents are in any doubt about which events should be entered then please see Neil or Liz.

 

Those swimmers, where Romiley is NOT their first named club will only be eligible to swim as ‘Open’ swimmers.  As such they will receive medals for their placing in races as ‘Open’ swimmers but will not be eligible for the trophies for that event. (This is not negotiable)

 

Many thanks

 

Neil Ryan

Open Water swimming.

Dear swimmers. If you fancy trying your hand at some open water swimming over the summer and don’t want to travel into Salford there is a great resource just 5 miles away, Todbrook Reservoir  in Whaley Bridge.
The session is run by Glossop Triathlon Club on Thursday evenings from 5.30 until 7.30 and most Saturdays mornings from 8.30 until 10.30.

There will always be a kayak out for your safety and a volunteer on the bank checking swimmers in and out. The loop distance is usually 400/450 metres.
You will need to register for a fee of £10 as insurance cover and pay £5 per swim unless you are a member of a Tri Club or British Triathlon in which case you do not need to pay the £10 and each swim will be £2.50.  We ask that you wear a wet suit or a tow float if you swim in trunks

For the last few weeks the water temperature has been in the high teens and I would add that these are really well run sessions with great attention to safety. You are left to swim round on your own and there is a nice cup of tea or coffee at the end of it. Do give it a go if you can.
