June Haw

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of June earlier this week.
June was a founder member of the former Trenton Dolphins Swimming Club and played a major role behind the scenes from the start until when the club had to close in 2011.
When Gainsborough Dolphins started June supported the Management Team passing on years of experience to help the new club and carried on her voluntary work manning the front desk every Sunday for several years.
I am sure many of you would join the club in sending heartfelt condolences to Cliff and the family.

Jackson wins England Talent Athlete of the Year

George Jackson won England Talent Athlete of the Year Award for Water Polo for his impressive performances in 2016 and 2017.
Jackson is a member of Rotherham Metro Water Polo club. During the last season he helped his club to secure promotion in the National League. At just 14 years old, he impressed with his skills as an outfield player, as well as being Rotherham’s number one goalkeeper.
Jackson said: “It’s amazing to achieve such an award for playing a sport I love. We’ve played at National Age Groups this year which we won, and then U16s Inter-Regionals last month which we came third in. But I got MVP. It’s a team sport and it’s so great to win with your team.”

Mr P Tribute Swim – Save the Date

Mr P Tribute Swim & BBQ

23rd June 2018

We are intending to run a swim gala with 25 and 50M swims, and relays as well as fun stuff with a BBQ and drinks after.

The swim is for ex Trenton Dolphins swimmers and swimmers from GDSC who were taught by Mr P over the many years he was involved in the clubs (GDSC Swordfish swimmers and above)

It expected that each swim will have an entry fee of £2 and the BBQ circa £5, with this money and all money made through sponsorship and events on the day going to several charities close to Mr P and the family’s heart.

Keep your eyes on the website and Facebook page for more details over coming months.

Thanks

The Management Team

Swim 21

Great News! The club has achieved Swim 21 accreditation on our first submission.

We started the process in January and set ourselves a tight schedule but at the recent East Midland review panel our submission was reviewed and approved, we should get it rubber-stamped by the National panel next week when our certificate will be issued. A big thank you to Fiona Martin and Paula Osborne for sorting out what documents and forms were needed, checking and uploading them. Well done to everyone who supported them, especially Mark, Julie and Clare for their support in providing information and completing forms etc.

A sincere thank you to Sue Paget from East Midlands ASA for her patience and enthusiastic support through-out the process.

Nigel

A Proud Chairman
