KINGFISHERS S.C. – AMAZING RESULTS AT SPRING YORKSHIRES

AMAZING RESULTS AT SPRING Yorkshires

Our intrepid group of Yorkshire swimmers made their way to Leeds and Sheffield pools over two weekends in February and brought home an amazing haul of medals, final places and Pb’s.
Competing against swimmers from all over the Yorkshire region in 44 races our guys won a very impressive 2 golds, 1 silvers and 3 bronze medals with 10 finals places in other events plus 23 personal bests and Northern Regional qualifying times.
Tommy Eblet Boys 12 years and over – 2 golds – 1500m and 800m Freestyle
Izzy Vasey Girls 12 years – 1 Silver – 50m Breaststroke and two more finals
Eliza Hammond – Girls 13 years – 1 Bronze – 50m Backstroke and one more final
David Hope 11 years – 2 Bronzes – 50m and 100m Backstroke and one more final
Joe Benson – Numerous personal bests
Grace Fox – Numerous personal bests
Cory Tite – Numerous personal bests
Well done guys you smashed it out of the park!!!!
For a seaside club with much less water time that many of the big city clubs this highlights the excellent coaching standard that goes into getting these kids to the peak condition at just the right time. Our thanks go to Jon, Kev and the rest of our great coaching and teaching teams for their ongoing commitment and planning. Not forgetting the long suffering parents who spent long, hot sticky days in both pools and several that help the coaching team on poolside as team managers

Sunday Training Session Time Change

To make effective use of the Sunday sessions between 16:00 and 19:00 there is a need to slightly change the times of top squad, masters and the development programme. The club has access to a further 4 lanes which will enable more space for all squads to develop and improve.

As from 24th March
16:00-17:00
Masters Squad
Mags and Tony’s development sessions

17:00-19:00
All regular top squad swimmers, Lanes 3 up to 8 who swim with myself and Kev

Maggie has all the names from this evening so if you are unsure please PM Mags. If you have an issues regarding the change please contact the coaching team.

This is a positive change to the Sunday sessions as well as a necessity in moving the club and training program forward.

Many thanks
Jon
