Thank you to all those who helped – we could not have done it without you!
The Club Championships include a full programme of swimming events and are open to everyone from the Swim Academy to the Masters squad. It’s a competition which we very much encourage everyone to take part in and for experienced swimmers to have a go at events which they aren’t so used to especially the longer distance events.
The races are on will take place on:
Sunday 1st October at Horfield Leisure Centre – 10am to 4pm. 9.30am meet and registration for session 1 and 12pm meet & registration for session 2.
Friday 6th October – Easton LC – 7pm to 9pm. 6.30pm meet and registration.
Saturday 7th October Easton LC – 6pm to 9pm. Meet and register at 5.30pm.
These dates will include the 25m races for younger swimmers, the 50m, 100m and 200m events – and the mum and dads’ races! If your child is aged 7 to 9 they may take part in the 25m races for frontcrawl, backstroke and breaststroke. There is also a 25m race for butterfly for which extends to those aged up to 11. There are mid distance 100 and 200m races in each stroke and also a 200IM. It is very important that swimmers in the development squads are encouraged to enter multiple mid distance races as these distances are the norm (there aren’t any 50m Olympic races except for the 50m freestyle!). Obviously, each swimmer has personal strengths for each stroke – further information about which races to swim is on the entry form next to each event.
If you have an queries about the champs (e.g. which races to enter etc), please email or call me. Alternatively, speak Josh, David, Andrej, Jason or one of the swim coaches/teachers on pool side.

For the first time, we held our club championships jointly with Bristol Henleaze Swimming Club where the swimmers were mixed together in graded heats but separate placings were given. We also had a seprate sprint meet which was just penguin swimmers.
There were loads of great swims including two new club records. Well done to Harriet Smith who beat Emily Concannon’s 7 years 25m freestyle record in a time of 20.56. Also, Oscar Short beat Isa Ghadian’s 14 years 100m freestyle record in a time of 59.71.
We done to everyone who took part. The biggest entry yet! Lots of personal bests!
