Another great weekend for the Age Group Development squad at the Gloucestershire County Championships, February 2019



Competitions were rather disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. At the end of the year we managed two sets of time trials, ‘Level X‘ with an Swim England approved minimum set of judges, and conventional time trials where we did not resource Swim England signed off officials. The results of both of these may be downloaded.

Level X 2020

Time trials 2020

Both Level X and Time trial results mark swimmers against the Swim England Competitive Swimming Speed Awards. Badges may be purchased to mark these awards.

The standards are based around Swim England benchmark times for 12-13 year old swimmers.

The awards are split into Sprint (25m, 50m and 100m); Middle Distance (All 200m & 400m freestyle) and Distance (400m IM, All 800m and 1500m Freestyle).

The idea is to get the circular round badges for Sprint, Middle Distance and Distance in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum and have each of the strokes under the badge. The round badges are for display purposes and the strips are earned according to the time. You only need to get one sprint time.  E.g. If you get the time in 25m Free, then you get the badge and once you get it in 50m free you don’t get any further badges for the Sprint. You can get an idea of the badges / flashes from this image, borrowed from Wellingborough Swimming Club. If you would like to buy a badge + flash please contact Jeremy Dudley to place an order. The price is approximately £3 per badge and £1.50 per strip – we will confirm the latest prices from the Swim England prior to committing to an order.

23rd March 2019 – David Bryant Gala

This is one of our memorial galas, held in memory of one of our volunteers.

David Bryant was a parent volunteer at Penguins. He was the Gala Organiser, and would help the team managers with getting teams ready for competitions, and the officials and helpers that were required. His wife, Janice, was a teacher with Penguin’s and his son, Wayne, was a swimmer. He was very well liked. David and Janice also provided the Penguin’s banner which we bring out to galas.

He was taken ill with heart problems and sadly passed away in the BRI before he could have surgery. He died on the day of our AGM, the last Wednesday in April 1994.

It was a great shock at the time, because it was quite sudden and he was fairly young, 42. He was greatly missed. After he passed away the Club held a sponsored swim in his memory and raised money to redecorate a day room at the BRI.

We have swum this gala since Janice and Wayne gave us the trophy awarded to the winner.
