At last, Urdd Pembs has sent through the results from the county secondary schools event – Urdd Pembs Secondary School Results 2017
Good luck at the National Finals this weekend in Cardiff to Rhys and Rachael, competing in the secondary schools competition, and to Dexter and Chloe, who are representing their schools and the county in the primary school races.
Club will break for Christmas on Friday 22nd December. We will run a fun gala on that evening 7-9pm for all squads.
Normal training will resume for all squads on Monday 8th January. However, Fred has booked the pool on Thursday 4th January 5-7pm for Dev 3 (5-7); Water Dragons and Dev 1 (5-6); and Dev 2 and Youth (6-7).
Three Flyers set their sights on this year’s Winter Nationals at the National Pool in Swansea, competing as part of a combined Pembs county team.
Rhys Davies, Rachael Lewis and Zac West met the tough qualifying standards to join up with some of the best swimmers in the county to fly the flag for Pembrokeshire over the course of last weekend (1st-3rd December).
Rhys produced a cracking swim in the 15-16 year 200 backstroke to grab gold in a time of 2:15.60. He got close to securing another medal in the 100 back, shaving 0.49 seconds off his previous best time, to finish fourth.
Rachael qualified for the 50 and 100 breaststroke, and she produced a fine swim to cut 2.5 seconds off her 100 time to hit the wall in 1:24.75.
Zac also qualified for two events in his favourite backstroke, slashing almost 7 seconds off his previous best long course 200 backstroke time to touch in 3:04.17.
For all three, but particularly our two younger swimmers, the step up in competition at a national level event was a valuable experience and will stand them in good stead for the future.
The future’s orange. Go Flyers!
Hi all,Please note that training is cancelled for all squads on Tuesday 14th November due to the club competing against Preseli Panthers in the inter-club gala. Those that have already been contacted about taking part in this gala, please aim to arrive at Crymych leisure centre at 4.45pm ready for warm up at 5pm. If anyone hasn’t been contacted but would still like their child to take part, please email me on this address and I will pass it on to coaches. Coaches will inform the children which races they are in on the night. Ages 10 and under will compete in 25m (one length) races; those aged 11 and over will compete in 50m races. (Age at August 31, 2018 – school year). Cheers
We need your votes in order to raise some much needed funding so we can take our members long course training at Wales National Pool, Swansea.
A little effort will mean a lot.
Hi folks, Please note, training is cancelled for all squads next Monday and Tuesday (30th and 31st) due to an acute shortage of coaches. The club is currently carried along on the goodwill of a small number of committed souls, who do a fantastic job for Flyers. However, this is unsustainable in the long-term. So, we need more parents to volunteer to help – we particularly need more coaching volunteers to help poolside. If you can spare even one hour a week to help, please speak to Fred or one of the other coaches. Thanks
