Hi all members, swimmers, parents, siblings and friends. Here is something to do during the holidays!!
Fishguard Flyers is 20 years old this year. To celebrate we would like to launch a mascot which will accompany children at galas and make home visits. We are running a ‘Design a Mascot’ competition – get creating, the best idea for an Mascot will be turned into the real thing.
Please download and print the template. Get drawing and bring it back to Leisure Centre. Once we have received a good amount of entries, we will get judging. Thanks to the swimmers who have already submitted their designs.
Good luck 🙂
PLEASE RETURN YOUR MEMBERSHIP FORMS THIS WEEK WITH MONEY (OR PAY BY BACS) – MEMBERSHIP WILL ONLY BE PROCESSED IF PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED. From next week (April 8th) we will not allow children to swim if their membership form has not been received.
SWIMATHON March 29th – entries close tomorrow Wed 27th – please enter, such a great occasion for all swimmers.

Dear all, As from Monday 25th March, Fishguard Leisure Centre have asked that all Fishguard Flyers swimmers swipe in at reception before their sessions. The Leisure Centre will provide a box that the members cards can be left in before the session, so that the staff can swipe in whilst the children are swimming to save a queue building up. Please do not forget to collect your cards at the end of your session. Many Thanks
Many thanks to all members who attended our parent evening last night. It was great meeting you all.
For all of you who could not make it, I have now uploaded the documents for our new Squad structure onto the website. Waterdragons, Development 2/3 and Youth squad are unaffected by changes other than name change. The Development 1 squad is now called Academy and will be split into 3 groups. Please email if you have questions and/or you would like to discuss the proposed squad for your child.
The website squad page itself will be updated on March 4th when the new squads start.
We finally have located/ received the complete results from both Pembrokeshire primary and secondary schools Urdd galas. Primary results are in the excel sheet attached and the secondary results are here: https://www.urdd4.org/canlyn…/canlyniadaugweithgareddau.a5w…
Well done once again to all who took part and represented their schools – you all did amazing! Not long until the finals now with Victoria, Dexter, Sammy and Oli competing in Cardiff on January 26th.
Christmas fun session Friday Dec 21st from 7-8pm. Master sessions and Youth training 8-9pm as usual.
The club will close for Christmas on Dec 21st and only re open on Jan Mon 7th.
Merry Christmas to all our members.
Pembrokeshire County Swimming, of which Fishguard Flyers are part of, welcomes Nick Russell to the PCS coaching team as new Assistant Coach. Nick has a vast experience of coaching at RCT Performance Swim Team. Nick has put swimmers on to Welsh National squads and is part of the Welsh coach development team program. He has also been selected to coach at this year’s inter-counties.
Nick is due to start on October 1st and will until then come and visit Pembrokeshire every Wednesday to start familiarising himself with our pathway and facilities. No dates as yet have been set for Club visits, but they will commence soon. Nick will certainly be there at the County Championships to throw an eye on all our talented swimmers.
In other news: We are very proud of Hans who has been selected for the Welsh National Skills Squad for this season. He will also compete in Sheffield on Oct 7th as part of the West Wales team in the Inter-Counties gala. 40 teams from all over Britain will race in two 25m pools over 6 events. We wish him and his fellow Pembrokeshire mates Rory, Sean and Rhys good luck!
