Caerphilly County Swim Squad Club Champs 2014

It’s that time of year again where we have our annual club championships.  We have a full weekend of swimming ahead of us, in a friendly club atmosphere and we will be joined by the Dragons Disability swim club on Sunday.

Swimmers need to be on poolside 15 minutes before warm up, ready to get started and will need club hat, goggles, flip-flops, club t-shirts (or a red one) a small amount of food and some water (no energy drinks).  All swimmers are to stay with coaches through out the meet and not sat with parents.

Warm up times are:

Friday 7pm warm up – pool side 6.45pm

Saturday 1pm warm up – pool side 12.45 pm

Sunday 1pm warm up – pool side 12.45 pm

There will be presentations on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, with a cannon relay at the end of Sunday where teams are coached by selected parents.

A swim shop will be open during the champs selling club t-shirts, shorts, hats, goggles and various other swimming kit.  A raffle will be drawn over the weekend, so keep hold of your tickets.

Caerphilly Club champs will be a first for many of the swimmers this year – as a club we want you to enjoy the day, have fun with team mates on poolside and give every race 100%.

We encourage all spectators to support and cheer for all swimmers during the weekend, and enjoy the swimming and have fun!!.
