Hi all, and happy half-term for those of you who that is meaningful to!
A very brief update this week safe in the knowledge that next week I will probably be sharing a lot more information on different topics.
The one area I wanted to update on this week is the ongoing recruitment of our Head Coach. We will be seeing a few candidates again next week to progress discussions and move closer to finalising our decision and making an offer. For those thinking that this is a slightly more protracted process than expected – fear not. We have always been working on the assumption that our new Head Coach would not be joining us until the start of the new season. As such, we have plans in place until then, and now that we are starting to get a better picture of who will be attending National Championships we can put final plans in place for the lead-up to those as well.
Until next week, bye for now.
A big well done to all our Regional 14 and under swimmers who competed last weekend. There were some great swims, PB’s, finalists and medalists. A much fuller report will appear here next week.
Raffle Prizes needed for Primary Schools Gala
Thank you for all the wonderful donations we have received towards making up hampers to be raffled off at the Primary Schools swimming gala. We are only one week away now and things are coming together. We hope it’s going to be great day for the 27 schools signed up to compete and have fun.

Lessons Club T-shirts and Hoodies for swimmers!
It’s great to see some of our swimmers arriving at lessons in the new WCPSC lessons t-shirts and hoodies! If you haven’t got yours yet why not have a look at the range below. They are great value, and available in a wide variety of colours, and you are able to add your initials and/or surname to the back if you would like to!
If you can’t see a colour you would like, why not suggest one and we will see if we can add it to the range!
