Bangor Diddy Meet April 13th 2013

This is a nice 1 day gala at Bangor Pool that several swimmers attended last year. The gala is very popular and I would hope to get all entries in before Feb half term to avoid disappointment. Swimmers can enter this event with No Times so it is an ideal first gala the min. age is 9. for an entry pack please see website.



In order to try and provide a smooth transition between lessons and competitive swimming the club will be introducing the ASA National Swim Awards. All swimmers in the beginners squad will be taken through the various stages and certificates awarded when a level has been acheived. As the club will be asking parents to make a small contribution towards the cost of purchasing the certificates a list will be placed on the noticed board at the pool of all the swimmers involved. Certificates will only be ordered and processed when a parent/carer has indicated that they are happy for their child to be included in the scheme and contribute to the cost. Only swimmers who train on a Mon or Tues are eligible for this scheme due to the lack of coaches/helpers available. If any swimmers in other squads would like to be included then please let Careyann know asap so that she can add you to the list. A Performance Award Scheme will be introduced in the next few weeks for all those swimmers participating at a competitive level.



We are hoping to hold a meeting to appoint the vacant positions within the club in the next few weeks. Please watch the notice board for the date and venue. All parents/carers are invited to attend.


The club would like to wish the best of luck to all swimmers who will be taking part in the Urdd Swimming Gala in Cardiff this coming weekend (25th Primary 26th Secondary) Give it your best.


Entries have now closed for the tiger bay meet, watch this space for more future gala's.


Tiger Bay Meet Cardiff March 22nd-24th 2013

Please find attached the entry details for this meet here. This meet has strict entry time requirements, a list of eligable swimmers is on the notice board at the pool. I have only included swimmers who meet at least 4 of the required times due to the travelling involved, however if any swimmer who has times fast enough wishes to enter there is no min. amount of races they need to do. Please can i have entries for this gala asap please, no later than 10/01/13 as it is on a first come first serve basis. Thank You


Welcome back to everyone after the Xmas hols. I hope that you are looking forward to working hard and getting back in to training for the New Year. We have several gala's coming up over the next few months (please check notice board at pool and events page on website).

Some of the older swimmers have requested early morning swims please check the notice board for details and put your name down if you're interested. We need to have a min of 4 swimmers to justify having a lane out.

With the club now healthier than ever we will be looking at the squads and possibly making a few changes, details of these changes will be placed on the notice board and via email, coaches will also notify you if your training times change.

Although we have so many more young people in the water our numbers poolside are decreasing and we are keen to encourage more parents to get involved. If you would be happy to help out then please let either Linda or Careyann know, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

you can contact us via here or the website.


message from Carey-ann

Hi all

I am afraid that due to the lack of coaching staff available and the anticipated low attendance we have decided to cancel this Sat 24th training. Last Sat saw only 5 swimmers training of which 4 will not be there this week to due other commitments.

We will be back to normal on the Sun 25th and dont forget that Thurs training is now available to most of the squads for details please check the website.

For details of which swimmers are in which squads please see our notice board at the pool. If you are unsure about the squad you are in or have any queries about when you should be swimming or the amount you should be paying please speak to either Careyann, Rhian or Linda. Thank You


A new squad list is now displayed on the notice board please check this to see if your swimmer/s have been promoted to new squads. If you would like to discuss any aspect of promotion or a swimmers availability to train then please speak to either Rhian or Careyann before this time so that we can take your views into consideration. Promotion is agreed by all coaches and is based on a number of factors, attendance and performance at both galas and training as well as attitude, behaviour and conduct during training sessions. Please can everyone ensure that they are now paying the correct monthly fee if your swimmers have moved up a squad. We really do not want to deny swimmers the opportunity to train because in correct fees are being paid.

Please refer to the events page for entry packs to forthcoming galas I will do my best to post them as soon as I have the info.
Please can all swimmers and parents make a concerted effort to keep up to date records of times acheived. Official times will be need to enter most galas and it really helps the person submitting the entries if swimmers have included their times. Log books are available from most on-line swim shops or a simple spreedsheet does the same job.
