Nottingham Northern Swimming Club
Nottingham Northern Swimming Club is a friendly and competitive swimming club which welcomes both female and male swimmers of all abilities from the age of five years old.
Training Sessions are held five times a week; three times at Harvey Hadden Sports Village and once each at Ken Martin Leisure Centre and at Nottingham High School. The club organises an annual Nottingham Northern Junior Open Meet in June each year and enters swimmers in a range of Galas throughout the year.
Club Champs 2015
Well done to everyone who competed in this year's Northern Club Champs. The results are now available. There were some brilliant races, and 351 PBs were achieved! Thank you to all the parents and helpers. Please visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists. Here is Matthew Anderson receiving one of many trophies - he also broke several of our long-standing Club Records this year.
Presentation Evening: Following the club champs our annual club presentation evening took place on Saturday 21st November 2015 at Mellish Rugby Club on Mapperley Plains. Photos from the event are now available from the Swimmers Page.
Nova Centurion Swim Camps: Spaces are still available at a swim camp coming up for back and freestyle focusing on turns on Sunday 28th February 2016, from 11:45am to 2:30pm at the Nottingham University Pool. The price has now been reduced to £35 each. Please see the flyer and more information and application forms.
Nottingham Northern Junior Open 2016: The 40th Nottingham Northern Junior Open will be held on Sunday 26th June 2016 at Harvey Hadden Sports Village. This will be a licensed meet using a 25m pool and will be our first at this new facility. Put the date in your diary and watch this space for more information!
ASA Stage 3 Gala 1st Round, 23rd January: The first round of the Stage 3 Gala for the older swimmers was held at Mansfield on the 23rd January. These galas have 100m races; some swimmers did well but some found the distance a bit hard so training will be stepped up for the next rounds. Well done to all who took part. 10 PBs were achieved. Please visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
2016 AGM: The 2016 AGM of Nottingham Northern Swimming Club takes place upstairs at The Plough Inn, 17 St Peter's St, Nottingham, NG7 3EN at 7:00pm on Tuesday 1st March. Come along, see how the club is run and meet the committee. Read the Agenda.
Membership Fees: As mentioned in our last newsletter, we have increased our monthly fees by £2 per month with effect from 1st January 2016. As you are aware, pool time has considerably increased since we moved to Harvey Hadden, and this has greatly benefitted our swimmers over the last 3 months. Could you please, therefore, alter your standing orders as soon as possible to either £24 for Category 1 swimmers or £25.50 for Category 2 swimmers. (This amount includes yearly membership fees to the ASA). Please contact Diane if you have any problems with the payment of fees. Thank you.
Pool Closures: There will be no training at Harvey Hadden on Sunday 14th February 2016. If any training sessions have to be cancelled due to any unforeseen circumstances, announcements will be issued by email. Please ensure the club has an up to date email address for you to ensure you receive alerts.
Upcoming Open Meets: A number of open meets are coming up. Those who would like to enter must be Category 2 swimmers. Doncaster Dartes are holding their Easter Meet on Sunday 20th March at Adwick le Street near Doncaster. This always proves popular so entries to Michelle by 29th January please. And the Rykneld B Grade Open Meet takes place on Saturday 23rd April in Clay Cross in Derbyshire. Please see the Galas and Diary Dates Page for information and entry forms for these and other upcoming galas and other dates in the life of the club.
