Sprint Meet - Saturday - Help Required by Simon Sinclair on 15/9/2014 @ 17:36
Calling all parents... we desperately need assistance 
with the running of the clubs sprint meet on Saturday 
with the below roles:

Stewarding - involves organizing the competitors and 
ensuring that they are sent to the correct heat at the 
correct time.

Doors - Involves selling tickets and programmes to allow 
people entry to the balcony.

General poolside assistance - involves distributing 
results and taking drinks and refreshments to the 
officials and workforce on poolside.

If you are available to help with any of the above please 
email simon.sinclair@coventry-swimming.org.uk

We also require as many of the clubs qualified officials 
as possible to help with the officiating of the event.

Without the assistance of club members it will not be 
possible for these events to be run in the future.

3rd Place at Junior League Final by Adam Ruckwood on 15/9/2014 @ 15:02
City of Coventry had a great gala on Saturday in Wolverhampton to conclude the Nuneaton Junior League Final
for this year.  At a tough meet the team swam well to finish 3rd on 191 points behind eventual winners
Northampton on 221 and Boldmere on 218.  Leicester Sharks (4th), Stratford (5th) and Leamington (6th)
completed the line up for the Final.

There were some stand-out swims from the team especially the 9 years boys medley relay and boys freestyle
cannon  both of which set new League Final records.

The Final was also the last gala for coach Steve Burke who is standing down from the coaching staff.   The
great swims from the team were a fitting farewell to Steve who has been involved with the club for almost 20
years.

Congratulations to all swimmers, coaches and team managers!

We have two events coming up which we want to run raffles at, this is an appeal for any bottles that people
wish to donate, either alcoholic or non alcoholic that can go into the hampers that Calre Burden fantastically
puts together!

Any donations gratefully received at the Club night Desk.

The events coming up are the 50m Sprints on the 20th Sept and then the week after on the 27th, the Annual
Awards Night.

their outcome, following much research.

Swim Britain - 6th September by Jo Deakins on 17/4/2014 @ 14:08
Swim Britain this year is on 6th Sept at Coventry Sports Centre. There is an early bird discount price of 30
if a team of 4 enters before 31/5/14. Team sessions are at 0845 hrs. There are also discounts if you are a
British Gas customer. We had a good attendance of members last year and it would be great if we can have more
members this year take part! This is a great event to showcase the pool as without a 50m pool events like this
can not and will not come to Coventry.

Details can be found on the Swim Britain site www.swimbritain.co.uk If you do enter a team please use the
code SBCS59 so your entry is linked to Coventry.

Ellie Simmonds is confirmed to be here in Coventry on the 6th September so form your teams and enter on the
Swim Britain website - Good Luck!
