NEWS SPLASH – November /December 2016

Can you believe its end of term 1, and what a busy and great one it was!


A fun night of races and activities is planned for next Tuesday 20th Dec for all swimmers – please add your name to the notice board so we can have things a little bit organised.

Gala Calendar

There are quite a few galas coming up in early January, so keep an eye out for closing dates. Leinster Graded gala in the NAC on 15th Jan-entry closing date 6th Jan – this is suitable for all those who have been attending the Round Robins and are ready to move to the bigger events – if you are near or have achieved a Grade 7 time. Talk to your coach if you are unsure and discuss events to enter.

Round Robin – Junior Swimmers

The last of the Round Robins for this term is set to take place on Sunday 18th Dec in Wexford – Entries are due.

Coaches Corner

A short talk to each of the groups from the Club Childrens officers is still outstanding. This will give the children an opportunity to know who the CCOs are, should they need them at any time. This is still on the agenda and will be completed in Term 2

Well Done !

A team of just 5 swimmers represented Asgard at the recent Irish Short Course Champs (25m pool) in Lisburn.. Swimmers Nicole Devitt , Freja Kavanagh , Keith Bentley, Niall Loughran and Euan Keighley flew the flag over the weekends events. Euan came home with a well earned Silver medal in the 200m Breaststroke

Club Captains

Last years captains Emer and Gavin are just finished their term. It’s a difficult job to get up and running and they did well. We are hoping to make this a bigger feature for the swimmers next year. We will be running an election for next years Captains early in the new year. Details for the process will be sent to all in January.

Fun Fab Gala

Our gala ran really well with lots of excited swimmers taking away medals. Many thanks to all those who helped in any way to make this such a success. We raised approx. €700 euro for club funds.

Club Gear

We are expecting delivery of orders next week – hopefully we can get them distributed before the Christmas Break .

Christmas training for Senior group

We will have a training sessions over the break for Senior swimmers who wish to participate – 28th /29th &30th from 10am to 12 pm – cost is €20 euro per swimmer. Please email Caroline to book your place.
