Well what another weekend of excellent swimming from all sections of the club!  This weekend was the conclusion of the Hampshire Development meet at which we had plenty of personal best times, racing skills developed, not to mention medals!  I am proud that our swimmers came away with the Top Club Trophy and would like to take the opportunity to say well done to all swimmers, coaches and parent helpers that made this happen.  It was also great to see so many parents volunteering in new roles for the first time; our club really can't function to its best without you....and look what happens when you do! AMAZING RESULTS!!
 
Following on from this, we had the first round of the Minor League at Woking in the evening.  We had two teams competing and we had many super fast swims in all age groups - the team atmosphere was awesome!  The A team finished the gala in first place and the B team in third place and provided many swimmers with the opportunity to race individually and in relay teams.
 
Not to mention our usual lessons programme and squad training over the weekend, which included our first Saturday morning training session at St Swithun's School. 
 
Another big thank you and well done to all involved in the weekend's events.  On to the Portsmouth meet this weekend and to Sheffield for the British Swimming Championships in the next couple of weeks!

Kim
