Swim England’s Inspirational Youth Champion Award Winner!!

Congratulations & well done to one of our Kingfisher youth coaches, Jack Naylor and all at Swim England’s North East Regional Youth Forum for winning Swim England’s Inspirational Youth Champion Award last tonight.

 

Jack is the Chair of the North East Youth Forum and has worked tirelessly throughout the year. Jack spent time throughout the summer helping young swimmers stay safe in the sea working with the Swim Safe programme, saving, and helping people on our local beaches for the RNLI, supporting Kingfisher SC’s open water sessions and his mum Zoey on her many sea swims, not forgetting the volunteer work that he does coaching our younger Kingfisher swimmers & also the officiating at swim galas.

The Swim England North East Region Youth Forum’s aims are to:

  • Represent the interest of young people participating or volunteering within aquatics within the North East Region.
  • Develop a network of young people throughout the organisation and the sport across the region.
  • Assist on projects within the Northeast Region such as the development of resources and training opportunities for young volunteers.
  • Act as ambassadors for the sport and the organization at a local, county, regional and national level. Be a representative for the sport and the organization.
  • Positively engage with youth and young adult members in an engaging way which motivates them to represent the interests of young people in a challenging, rewarding and enjoyable manner.

The Swim England North East Region’s Youth Forum has a maximum of 20 permanent members between the ages of 13 and 25 and looks to meet a minimum of 4 times each year.

Kingfishers Ridings Team Selection – SAT 16/10/21 – Bridlington

 

 

 

 

6 lane pool with electronic timekeeping system (this is not a licensed meet)

Trophy for the winning team on the night

This  meet is a Ridings Team event (by invitation only) with the coaching team making the selection from our squad of swimmers.

Team selection is at the bottom of this mail.

Poolside Team: Jon Cheshire, Kev Hope, Mike Draper TBC

Timekeepers & Judge – Shaun Vasey, Simon Benson & Nigel Walls. Relay splits – TBC

After a long break from competing, we are really pleased that we can get back to racing again as a team. Age groups have been reorganised from previous years to reflect that some of the younger swimmers in our region haven’t had the opportunity to gain much team racing experience since 2019.

Owing to the continued prevalence of COVID within our community, to limit risk, we will not be providing a team bus & ask that swimmers be transported to the gala independently wearing their swimming costumes to limit use of the changing rooms and do a lateral flow test the morning of the gala. Once poolside, please limit toilet visits and keep your kit and personal belongings in your bag. Spectators are asked to wear a face covering when moving around the leisure centre. Please do not attend if you have COVID symptoms.

 

Thank you so much in advance to all our amazing volunteers for supporting these galas – we can’t run them without you.

Please can all swimmers confirm to the coaching team that they can attend.

Swimmers should aim to be poolside no later than 3:20pm

Be part of the team, have fun and support each other!

If swimmers need to leave the poolside for any reason, please tell the poolside team where you are going. Wear your club kit and cap if possible. Bring something to eat (snacks – fruit, nuts, etc.), an extra towel, a bottle of water/plenty to drink, spare goggles and a hat if you have them and if you take medication, please make sure you have this with you. Loads more info here about what you might need especially if this is your first gala.

The team is the fastest combination of swimmers, per age group, chosen in consultation with members of the coaching team and final approval from the Head Coach.

Spectator tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis and will cost £2

Remember please confirm swimmers’ availability ASAP
