Friday 23rd September

Hi All,


On Friday 23rd September, The Queens Hotel in Leeds will be hosting the annual British Swimming Coaches Association Conference. This year as part of the conference, a selection of established national and international coaches will be coming to observe the younger members of the Leeds City Council Swim Training Scheme.


They will be arriving at around 6:30pm, to observe National Age Group, Regional Performance and Regional Development Squads. As such we will be expecting the highest levels of attitude and behaviour whilst the eyes of the swimming community are on us. I am requesting that you reinforce better than average behaviour from your child from this session, as it is a reflection of the Scheme, the Club and the City. Swimmers should arrive promptly onto poolside and begin their pre-pool routines with or without the coach’s presence.

Junior League Northern Final

Hi All,

Please could the following swimmers confirm their availability to Craig Robinson ( by Monday 19th Spetember

The Northern Final will be held in Lincolnshire on Sunday 2nd October.  A bus for athletes and team staff will be provided. Each athlete is expected to travel to and from the venue with the team.  This is a trait of high performance teams competing on an international level, and will also allow us to manage the children's safety upon arrival better as well as promote a more cohesive team.

The Northern Final is held on the same day as the Short Course Yorkshire Championships.  Those swimmers who have been selected for the Northern Final should make this competition the priority.  The Club will refund any races not swum at the Yorkshire Championships due to competing in the Northern Final.
