The Hayleigh Dunne Memorial Gala 06/09/2014

Gainsborough Dolphins went into this gala with a few of the regular squad swimmers missing but still produced the results.

33 first places from 46 events was a tremendous effort by the swimmers from all sections of the club. Some of them swimming for the club for a first time along with some seasoned midland swimmers and of course the Masters. Mark Smith would like to thank everyone who competed especially the ones who came in at short notice and did exceptionally well, and the ones who did races they would not normally compete in as its this attitude that improves a club. The mix of these age groups at this gala made for great club team building as some of the young ones got to swim in relays which accounted for the majority of the gala with the senior and masters. These Swimmers representing the club won the gala over all against teams from South Axholme Sharks and Edlington.

The club would also like to thank spectators for their support to both the swimmers and the fund raising on the night for Mr Dunne’s nominated charity.

Also swimming on the day, putting in some great performances to achieve personal best times in some events were:
Lottie Parkinson, Ethan Burton, Tonicha Watson, Chloe Huddart, Harriett Webster, Jack Boulton, and Sophie Hame. 

Please look on the notice boards for further events or see Chris Webster or poolside coaches to enquire about them and see if they think your child will be able to do them.

The club would like to take substantial numbers to open meets in the future to improve the clubs reputation within the Midlands area and give swimmers the opportunity to gain county, midland and national times.

Well done!

Well done to all the swimmers who swam at Grimsby in the Junior League on 22nd June. You all did very well and a great team effort resulting in us coming 2nd place. There were lots of tremendous individual successes, but most of all I was really proud how everyone encouraged each other and worked together as a team. And a big thank you to all the coaches and helpers who assisted on the day of the race

Thanks Chris

County Workshop 15th June 10-12years

Please find attached information for the 2nd County workshop
being held on the 15th June, again at Repton.
This workshop will be aimed at 10 -12 year olds with County times.
As before each club coach is to invite 6 swimmers, we have a total of 48
spaces if any club is not able to confirm 6 then these spaces will be
offered to other clubs to ensure all 48 spaces are filled.

Please let me know ASAP so I can collate a list of swimmers wishing to swim and pass onto the Lincs County.
