From this week, Flyers will begin a series of themed training evenings every Friday (7-8pm for Academy and 7-8.30pm for Development). On these evenings the club will focus on elements such as race skills; relays; distance & pacing; kick, underwater work & streamlining. Water polo will always take place on Fridays during school holidays. These sessions are intended to highlight some important technical aspects of swimming and give members a chance to try out a new distance/pace, while also emphasising the fun aspects of the training programme.
The themes will be chosen at random by the coaching team. These Friday sessions will be taken by Karl West and Lee Adams.
Please come, train hard and have fun.
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.
Congratulations to all Flyers who raced at Regionals over the last two weekends. There were countless pbs, plenty of finalists and tons of grit and determination on show.
Flyers grabbed a haul of 6 gold, 11 silver and 12 bronze medals – despite several members of the team being struck down with the lurgy at various points over the course of the two weeks. We also have 8 swimmers hitting qualification times for the Welsh Nationals in Swansea at Easter.
These are huge achievements and you should be as proud of them as the club, coaches and parents are.
Thank you to all coaches who helped with poolside duties. Without your commitment it wouldn’t happen.
