Did you know that you can get 10% discount from Rayner’s opticians in Brighouse on any pair of prescription goggles? Mention that you are a member of Halifax Swimming Club.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday 14th November at Halifax pool warm up at 7.05 for a 7.30p.m. start. Teams from Bradford Dolphins, Bradford Swimming club, Bingley, Spenborough and Saddleworth will compete for the George Barraclough Trophy.

This is our community event and will take place on Friday 20th November at 8.00p.m. The competition is open to pupils under the age of 16 who attend a Calderdale secondary school. See your Games teacher if you would like to enter. Events are individual 100m freestyle and team 100metres freestyle (3 per team) Closing date for entries is 23rd October.

THERE WILL BE NO TRAINING SESSION ON THAT NIGHT.

Next year club galas will be organized in a different way. We have devised a series of events where all swimmers will have opportunities to gain rewards for increasing their speed in each stroke and individual medley under competition conditions. This is called Points Score. The competition is open to all members of the club. More details will be given towards the end of the year.
Well done to the Halifax Synchro Club who took part in the third annual Leeds Kingfishers competition at Knottingley pool. They came away with five gold, three silver and three bronze medals. The competitors were Lucy Ackroyd, Alannah Kemp, Emma Skilton, Rosie Barrington, Lucy Nolan, Ruth Shaw, Eleanor Waite, Anya Finch, Rosie Woodward, Gabriella Murray, Melissa Knapton, Chloe Heaton, Freya Hill, Gemma Hollas, Erin Edmondson and Sophie Edmondson.
May I remind parents that Swimming Club can only be responsible for swimmers when they attend for a swimming session. We cannot be responsible for children who come very early and want to play before their timed training session.
I received a complaint about bad language being used in the girls changing rooms at the end of last week’s session. Girls, please be aware that there are still young children about at that time and the use of bad language is inappropriate.
