We are now just over halfway through the warm weather training camp in Torremolinos and the swimmers are really stepping up to the mark. Their work ethic has been fantastic and it is an excellent experience for them training outside in the warm climate.
I am taking part in the Stirling Aquathlon 14th October at the University in a bit to raise some money for my work charity Wateraid. If any one would like to donate I have set up an online just giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/Clare-Dawson1 Any donations would be greatly appreciated, even if its just 50p!
A massive WELL DONE to all those who competed at the Stirling Autumn Meet at the weekend. This was an extremely successful meet for Stirling with 14 golds, 14 silvers and 17 bronze medals being won over to the two days! On top of that it was PBs galore with 84% of nearly 200 swims being PBs. Fantastic effort all round! Keep up the hard work! :D
Thanks to all those who have submitted entries for the club costume competition, I'm really impressed. We are currently going through them all and more information will follow soon :)
An exciting opportunity has arisen for all swimmers within the club. We are looking for some budding artists to design a new costume for Stirling Swimming. The design is totally up to you, the only rule is that it must include the club colours somewhere within the design (black and yellow). Templates that swimmers can use are pinned up on the notice board at the university. All entries must be back to me either through email or at the pool, by Sunday 19th August.
I'm really looking forward to seeing all the designs so let's get creative!
The last four days have played host to the club's annual summer camp, rounding off a great 2011/2012 season. The Olympic -themed camp brought together 44 swimmers swimmers from all squads within the club. All swimmers were divided into 5 teams, each team being a colour of the Olympic rings.
