Penguins Club Championships 7th & 8th July 2018 – details and entry pack
SENT ON BEHALF OF RICHARD SMITH, HEAD COACH, MARLBOROUGH PENGUINS ASC
Its an exciting time of year for the Marlborough Penguins swimming club, because we have our Club Championships coming up on the 7th & 8th July at the Marlborough College Swimming pool. We use electronic timing, so swimmers times will appear on the score board when their swims are finished. Full details are attached, including the race order, timings and entry form.
Our Club Championships are run solely for members of the Marlborough Penguins swimming Club, and as a result it is a very friendly and relaxed competition offering swimmers the perfect opportunity to have go at races they may not have previously swum. In addition all swim times will be recorded onto the Swim England rankings, so that swimmers are able to enter other competitions outside of the Penguins swimming Club. For example, the Wiltshire County run a Development Competition specifically aimed at inexperienced swimmers between the ages of 9-13 years, but you’ll need a Swim England ranked time to enter. And finally, its a fantastic way for all the younger swimmers to watch and learn from some of the Clubs top swimmers. So there are plenty of reasons to enter.
The Club Championships are open to all swimmers that can swim 1 x 25m length of any, or all of the strokes and we are encouraging swimmers to enter as many events as possible. If you haven’t swum a race before then why not have a go !!! Those swimmers that train in lengths are encouraged to enter 1 x 25m and 1 x 50m of all four of strokes (i.e. front crawl, back stroke, breaststroke and butterfly). Those swimmers in widths classes (i.e. Group 4 and below) are encouraged to enter a minimum of 1 x 25m length of any of the strokes and 1 x 50m of their best stroke(s), but we ask that you speak to your teacher or myself to agree your entries beforehand so we can ensure our youngest swimmers enter races appropriate to their age and ability.
If you would like to enter, please complete the attached form and return it to me either by hand, or email it to me on firstname.lastname@example.org no later than mid-night on Friday 29th June 2018. Sadly entries received after this date/time will not be accepted. So don’t delay, get your entry submitted as soon as you can.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me or speak to your teacher or coach. Or you can email me at email@example.com or call me on 07920 013046
