A great team effort to win our gala in Round 2 of the Arena League! We had 22 first places, 7 second places & 11 third places out of the 50 swims in the gala. As usual the team support was superb and a great atmosphere both on poolside and on the bus to and from the gala.
Congratulations to everyone - including all the parents who drove to Wellingborough and provided great support for the swimmers.
Final points: Norwich Swan 237, Calverton & Bingham 218, Kimberley 167, Wellingborough 166, Dereham 134, Beccles 117.

Last weekend saw some great Swan performances at the East Region Winter Championships. Swimming in Open Age groups our team of Catherine, Ellie R, Finlay, Harry, Jaimee, Peyton & Tilly achieved 17 Qualifying times for 2016 Regional Championships, plus Catherine achieved the Qualifying time for the ASA National Winter Champs in December!
Catherine achieved the National Winter Championships Qualifying Time in the 100m IM, and reached the final of that event - coming 6th overall.
The Regional Championship Qualifying Times for 2016 have only just been published, so it was impressive to have half our swims achieve the qualifying times at this early stage of the season.
New Club Records
Finlay set 5 new club records in the 16&O Age Group - in the 50m, 100m, & 200m Breaststroke, and 200m & 400m IM. Finlay also achieved Personal Best Times in every event he competed in.
Harry Weston set a new club record in the 15yr 50m Freestyle.
Our PB system is up-to-date, including 25m split times, and times to 15m for all races over the weekend.
