4 Shires Swimming Club

4 Shires Swimming Club are waiting Swim England’s advice of when training and competitions will start again following restrictions imposed through Covid-19.  This has been a difficult time for our coaching teams to help maintain swimming squad fitness levels. Most of the swimmers attend daily workout sessions via Zoom which has shown how technology can help maintain team spirit and camaraderie.  Well done to all that have attended.

We are also pleased to announce our Swimmer Of The Year, this year it has deservedly been awarded to Immy Lawrence. Immy’s hard work and perseverance has paid off with many great swims throughout the year. We also highlight our most improved swimmers throughout the 2019/2020 year, this year the most improved girl was Annabel Barnard and most improved boy, Max Hayman. Well done all for your excellent work and look forward to seeing you flourish throughout next year.

It is also that time to select next years club and vice captains.  The Girls captain will be Charlotte Oliver with vice captain Emma Andrews.  The boys captain is Aaron Hamilton, with Ben Warner vice captain.

Congratulations to all the swimmers for their hard work throughout the year and for maintaining fitness levels during covid-19 and we look forward to seeing you back once the government guidelines permit. We also look forward to welcoming new swimmers into the 4 Shires Swimming Club.  Please find our contact details at www.4ssc.co.uk
