Message from Matt

I just wanted to put together a note to thank everyone for their help and support over the past few months especially those people that were pivotal to the success of the Christmas Cracker 2018. We have had an excellent start to the season and this is because of the swimmer’s hard work.

Christmas Training Timetable

The training timetable is attached to this email and has been updated and the details can be found on the Christmas Training Timetable page.

County entries

I am still awaiting an entry file from Cambs ASA and will enter all current swimmers for the events they have qualified for and swim. Please let me know what (if any) you would like to be entered if you are swimming for more than one club. I will tally up refunds and entries submitted as soon as possible. These will be submitted in batches to avoid a club rejection albeit highly unlikely given the published meet structure. Any rejected entries from COPS Winter Open Meet will then be given back to you or used to pay for any entries into this competition.

Club Champs County Time Trial

I am in the process of analysing the times and prioritise people that are the closest to achieving a county time to swim specific events. Due to time constraints, this will be limited, and further information will be released in due course. If there are empty lanes then these will be offered to swimmers in the Black and Red Squads on a first come, first served basis that could achieve county times with regional times being prioritised after the counties.

Black and Red Squads

Goal sheets and gym plans will be sent out over the festive period when I am catching up with admin work and we will publish an updated competition calendar. We will be entering Senior Fenland League (SFL) and Anglian League as Huntingdon Piranhas Swimming Club filling spaces with COPS swimmers as I know some of you have already competed with COPS for the National Arena League.

On a personal note, I would like to wish all swimmers and parents a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Enjoy the festive period.
