There is new video compilation on the web site, well done to all those who have contributed. It looks great. There are now 4 on there so have a look.
The first wave of invites for 2021 have now gone out. I did get some emails returned undelivered due to inbox being full. I am guessing the email I have is a work email and because you are currently not at work, your inbox is not accepting.
The date for this is Sunday November 1st 2020. Please keep the date free as all members can enter this event. I will be sending out the entry forms for this shortly.
Swim England have now pulled all the licences issued for all fixtures until further notice but certainly not before September 2020. There will be no competitions at all until licences start to be re issued again. It takes at least 3 months to issue a licence, so even Manchester at the end of the year is looking unlikely.

Len Badcock Meet planned for June has now been cancelled (not surprisingly) I received notification yesterday.
There are plenty of sessions and links to You Tubes on the web site under Gallery now. They have been included within every news email since close down. I have also included a lot of information on previous emails so you should be doing at least 1 hour of exercise every day. You do not have to do it all at once. Those who are regional camp attendees should be following your RMAP, and again you have been given all the tools to do this. Link below for posture exercises - this is on top of RMAP not instead of. Posture Exercises for swimmers
This is on the gallery for you. How many swim hats can you get on your head (one on top the other) in 30 seconds. Williams managed 6, see how many you can do! Record your effort and send it across to me.
I know it is difficult to stay motivated and so easy to get fed up and bored. Share your motivation with others. I know everyone is missing swimming.
I have ordered some new land training equipment to use when we return.
Swim England have announced changes to how DBS checks are being completed. I know this will affect around 3 people at the moment who are going through the process. I am sure you will receive notification of the changes shortly and how you can then proceed with your DBS. I suspect this new process will lead to delay.
We are still closed until further notice.
I had real difficulty in sending out the last news email. It would not send out to any hotmail, Gmail or outlook addresses. It has been uploaded to the web site and it is on facebook if people have still not received it. I am hoping that this one will send out ok.
Take care, regards
