Swim Training Polite Reminder – Punctual Attendance

Parents & Swimmers Please Note.

Swimmers please do not attempt to access the pool if you are any more than 10 minutes late for your session. This rule is to prevent injuries as you are much more likely to be injured if you miss warm up. Each session has a 15 minute warm up incorporated into all sets by the teachers & coaches.

How important is warming up before swimming?

With swimming using large groups of muscles it is essential that you use efficient movements and maintain a low heart rate so as not to fatigue the body. … Warming up increases body temperature, which reduces the chance for muscle and tendon injuries.

How long should swimming warm up last?

At bare minimum, your warm-up period should be five minutes long. If you are practicing an intricate sport like gymnastics or ballet, you need much longer than five minutes to properly warm up. Also, when your muscles are extremely sore from a previous workout, you will need to take more time to warm up.

Please respect this rule as it is there to reduce your risk of injury.

Thank You for respecting this rule……….  Safe & Happy Swimming !!

Scarborough Teenager To Attempt Cross-Channel Relay Swim

A Scarborough teenager is joining Kingfisher Swimming Club’s open water team.

14-year-old Maddy Adams and her team are taking part in a cross-channel relay attempt next summer.

The group need to raise around £6,000 for safety boats and crew, special equipment and lots more.

She is starting her fund-raising efforts by singing alongside her musical father Rich Adams (of well-known Scarborough band Stony) at a special concert on Friday 27th July at the Cask.

Maddy will be joined through the evening by a host of talented young performers playing a range of musical styles.

Robyn Keech, who is another singing-swimmer, from Kingfishers’ ranks will also be performing.

As well as performing her own set, Maddy will also join her Dad on stage when the night is rounded off.

Maddy said:

“The team need to raise money for safety boats and crew, special equipment and lots of other things.

I have swum in open water competitions for a couple of years but the channel relay would be my biggest challenge yet. I can’t wait.”

 

The Kingfishers Swimming Club is one of the oldest volunteer-run sports clubs in Scarborough and its Open Water section is going from strength to strength, competing across England and Wales.

Maddy’s dad, Rich Adams, said:

“Joining up with Kingfishers has been inspiring for our family as both of my daughters have swum with the club.

“The volunteers work tirelessly to provide great sporting opportunities for the youngsters.

The whole team needs to raise a great deal of additional funding to attempt something as major as a channel relay.

It’s a pleasure to be able to perform to try to support them – and even better to sing alongside Maddy!”
