Latest News

Harry Stow and Emily Sanderson from Hampshire and IOW County Sports Partnership (CSP) joined a Penguins' early morning training session last week as part of their 50 Sport Challenge.  The aim of the challenge is to try 50 sports in a year to raise the profile of the fantastic wide range of sport on offer around the county and show people how easy it is to try a new sport. Also joining in the session was Disability Sports Development Officer at Sport Hampshire and IOW and ex-Paralympian, Peter Hull MBE.


Children from Harestock Primary School who took part in WCPSC's Swim for the Future programme were presented with achievement certificates by Allie McLean and Emma Back at their assembly on Friday.  The programme is funded by Winchester Round Table and offers five intensive lessons to top up school curriculum swimming. The aim is to get more local children able to swim at least 25m by the time they leave primary school, and in this second year of the programme we've seen many more children reach this 25m target.  Well done to all involved!

Further to the cancelled swimming lessons on Saturday 27 June due to River Park staff illness, we can now confirm that we will be running a replacement swimming session on Saturday 25 July at your usual lesson time.
The session will still focus on technique, skills and building stamina, but in preparation for the holidays we are going to have a summer holiday theme!   
Your teachers and coaches look forward to seeing you there for some holiday themed aquatics.

Summer Holiday Course

Boost your child's progress with our intensive summer holiday lessons course at Kings School. 

There are still some places available on our courses being run during the following weeks: 3-7 August and 24-28 August.  Full details are available here.  You do not need to be a member of WCPSC to take part in this course, so friends and family members are welcome to take part too!

A big thank you to all our club volunteers in whatever capacity.  The club depends on its volunteers to help keep things running and we are obliged to provide officials (timekeepers and judges) for each open meet or gala the club enters.  Therefore, it's important we provide training for parents of younger swimmers to keep our numbers of officials as high as possible.  Being an official, or a team manager who assists the coach on poolside, is a great way to be involved in the action and to watch events close-up! 

We will be offering free in-house courses in the autumn (just 2-3 hours initially).  Please give the club your support and register your interest now:

Timekeepers and Judges - email Thelma
Team Managers - email Andrea

Thelma and Andrea would be happy to provide further details of what's involved on request.

WCPSC will pay ASA category 3 membership for any club member who contributes more than 8 hours volunteering during the year.

Urgent Reminder

All payments for the Development Competition and Portsmouth Northsea Open Meet should now have been paid.  If you have not settled your invoice, please could you do so with immediate effect.  Thank you.

Important Notice: 

The teams for Junior Cup will be selected and notified in the next few days.  It is a priviledge to be selected to represent your club and every attempt should be made to make yourself available to swim.  This gala clashes with Session 2 of the James Moreno Meet in Southampton but those swimmers selected to represent the club will be expected to prioritise the gala rather than the open meet.  Any events that you would have entered at James Moreno during Session 2, but can't due to gala team selection, can be entered at the Club Championships a couple of weeks later.
