Over the weekend of 15th July – CCSS took a team of swimmers from all squads to the Cardiff Sprint meet.
All swimmers that swam achieved a PB, and as a team we came away with over 37 Medals, 12 Speeding tickets and 14 swimmers made the final of the 200 IM with two swimmers winning a cash prize as top three in this event.
The swimmers supported each other during the meet, with parents and siblings also on hand to offer continued support to swimmers and coaches – truly a great team spirit was shown by everyone supporting CCSS.
Call out to all parents and swimmers 14 and over – we need your help.

Caerphilly County Swim Squad – SWIM CAMP
SwimPath’s Double Olympian Jemma Lowe and more Olympic swimmers attended Caerphilly Swim Club for a specialised Swim Camp on the 20th May 2017 at Caerphilly Leisure Centre. Swimmers in both sessions enjoyed perfecting skills and drills, and an opportunity to gain feedback form an Olympian.
Parents joined the swimmers in the afternoon for a session on nutrition, that was enlightening for some, educational for others, with everyone taking away something new – A big thank you to Jemma and Jay from Swimpath – diolch yn fawr.
