Well done everyone!!!

The Thursday night 5-6pm session for 7-9 year olds starts back on 21 September. All children who attended last July are welcome to attend. To those children who are on our waiting list please await your invitation to join. You will be notified either by a text or email.

Please note we have a considerable waiting list – as such if children do not attend for 4 consecutive sessions without notifying us it will be assumed that they no longer require their place.

We are planning to make exciting changes to the sessions which will allow the children to attempt different athletic events and have their times/distances recorded with a Certificate being issued on the completion of all the events.

This weekend 23 athletes and 11 parents all travelled to Conwy, Wales, for a middle distance residential trip. The girls have had a fantastic weekend of beach training sessions, a Pilates class, lane swimming, celebrating 4 of their birthdays but were unable to beat their parents at beach rounders!
The girls have been a real credit to the club and we also need to say a big thank you to  Brian, Martin and all the parents for making this trip happen.
