So, a good weekend’s swimming all round, with some thrilling results. A fitting finale to Ludlow’s competitive Open Season. See you all at the final round of the Mercia League!
Last session Friday 20 July 2018 – First Session of New Season Saturday 4 August 2018
Just a brief message to let you know about the Summer Closures, as detailed above.
It is advisable that younger swimmers particularly take a break from swimming at some point in the year, and the Summer is a great time to do this, given the light nights and long days. Outdoor activities such as cycling, walking and running are great ways to stay in shape and keep fit, ready for the new season. It is also a good idea to give yourselves some emotional recovery time as the gala season is pretty full on, so be gentle with yourselves and rest a recover ready for the start of the new training year.
Have a great Summer!!

SWIMMING / TRAINING AID KIT REQUIREMENT
At the request of the Head Coach and her team it has been suggested that all Improvers, Junior and Senior Swimmers attend all Swim Sessions with the following equipment to ensure that they utilise, to the maximum, their actual pool time ‘in the water and swimming’ rather than hunting around to find the correct fitting equipment provided by the club / Teme Leisure.
On top of the basics of Swimsuit – trunks or ‘Jammers’ for boys, plain costumes for girls, correctly fitting Goggles, Hat (LSC hats are available poolside) and Water Bottle – as a bare minimum we would request the following equipment
All of the above, and more are available at many websites such as Simplyswim if you go to our easyfundraising page HERE and login yourself in then look for Simplyswim the club can get back upto 2.5% of your purchase. if you’d like to know more about easyfundraiser see link below.
It is hoped that once established, the club could run an ‘exchange’ system, especially for training fins as swimmers grow and need larger ones.
For further advice, please contact Sandra or a member of her coaching team.
