A fabulous weekend of swimming resulted in the 57 strong Anaconda squad coming away from Barnet Copthall with 130 PBs, 134 medals, 62 Gold, 40 Silver and 32 Bronze and 9 club records broken by 6 swimmers.

There were also plenty of young swimmers taking part in competition for the first time and judging by the smiles on their faces and the results in the pool,they had a good time making their debuts and hopefully will be back in the competition pool very soon.

Coaches Joe Grubb and Harley Greer were delighted by the effort and determination shown by the whole squad over the weekend and were very pleased by the personal bests achieved by the swimmers.

The club would like to thank our parents who helped out at the meet. Talitha and David as officials, Ingrid,Jack and Matt who continued with their J1 training and Anne who volunteered to help out in the marshalling area. Without volunteers these meets can not happen so it is very much appreciated.

** Important notice from coaches**

When competing at an all day meet it is very important that the swimmer keeps dry and warm between races. (Especially when racing at Barnet Copthall, which can be cold both in and out of the pool) The swimmer should wear a top and tracksuit bottoms (or shorts). Also it is important to wear something on your feet to keep you warm. Do not forget to drink throughout the day to stay hydrated and refuel with food when you can.

The coaches would also ask that all swimmers wear the red club swimming hats when racing. Not only does it show who you are swimming for and looks more professional , it also helps the coaches spot you and enable them to see all of your race so they can give you the all important feedback. Thank you.
