Regional Age Group Start The Season On A High

We were very impressed with the amount of PB's achieved over the weekend and the high level of swimming skills during your races.  Usually this time of year, in early season it is great if swimmers can match their PB's but you guys seem to be smashing them already.  Excellent swimming. Open-mouth smile  

Over the next few weeks please make sure you push yourself on the underwater kicking out of the turns.  Underwater kicking is the 5th swimming stroke and is very important part of the race.  Crack this skill and you will almost guarantee yourself a bunch of PB's and bump yourself up a few places at the next competition.

Regional Development achieved 100 PB's out of 115 Swims, 2 Silver Medals, 1 Bronze Medal, 18 4th - 10th place finishes and 10 more Yorkshire times for 2017. Great stuff.

Your Club Needs You!

Every year the City of Leeds Swimming Club supporters committee raise funds to help support our swimmers.  Most of the money raised is from fundraising at our Gala’s through Raffles, Bookstalls and Tombola’s. 

We will be fundraising at the City of Leeds Xmas Meet and the New Year Meet Meet.   In order to do this we need your help by donating prizes.  Donations can be anything you feel that would be suitable as a raffle prize or a prize for the tombola. 

 Please see Lucie Black or Helen Butterfield who can be found at the bookstall on a Monday evening. 

Without your help we cannot support our swimmers. 

Thank you
