Club Championships 2019

All Fishguard Flyers swimmers are invited to swim at our annual Club Championships on Sunday July 7th 1-4pm (12.30 warm up)   We have changed the event format slightly for this year and also the entry process. All swimmers are entered automatically for all races in their age category and are strongly encouraged to take up all their races. Each race will earn them points which will go towards their team score.   Each swimmer who participates will be presented with a medal at the end of the gala and we also will be giving out a surprise anniversary gift this year to all members.   We would appreciate replies from all families by Friday June 21st to indicate if your child will be competing or not. Please be prompt with your replies as the chasing up takes a lot of precious volunteer time that we would rather spend on poolside with the children.    Please reply to Friederike frieschmi@gmx.de. Please also email Friederike with any questions you have. Please do not reply to this email.   Format:   Swimmers aged 10/u (age as of August 31st 2019) and older Waterdragons:    4 races: 25m bc Kick (or butterfly by coaches discretion), 25m backstroke, 25m breaststroke, 25m frontcrawl. An optional 5th race of 100IM if children are able and coaches happy for them to perform this.   Swimmers aged 11+:    5 races: 50m butterfly (or 25m by coaches discretion), 50m backstroke, 50m breaststroke, 50m frontcrawl, 100IM   Each competitor will be part of a house team and score points with each of their swims for their house. There will be some bonus events where each house can collect additional points and also some relay races where double points will be given.    This years gala will end with the relay races, there will be no after party in the studio on that day. The results will be accumulated in the week after the gala and will be revealed at our Summer Fun day on July 20th when the club gala and our annual awards presentations will be made.   There are no entry fees to be paid for the gala and entry to the spectator gallery will be free also. We will be holding a raffle on the gala day though, so please be generous and bring some raffle prizes along.   Looking forward to seeing everyone at the gala.   Your Fishguard Flyers Team

Mascot Competition 20th Anniversary

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 🙂

Checking into Reception before Training

 

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  

Changes to Club Squad Structure from March 4th

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.
