SE are looking for interested parties to join a focus group for Masters swimmers only. Click here for more details.
A huge amount of work goes into the Club Champs from our Coach, our officials and many volunteers. Thanks to all of you!
Good luck to all our swimmers, do your best and make yourself proud.
Thanks to parents and all the other supporters who come to watch, you make it extra special.
If you are unable to swim in any of the Club Champs please let us know asap at firstname.lastname@example.org if you let us know as early as possible we can re=work the heats so people don’t have to swim next to empty lanes.
Once again we are hoping to take a team of swimmers to this year’s Falcon Open Sprint Meet at Hucknall Leisure Centre.
Please note that there are no qualifying times for this meet.
If you are interested please see Jo Smith before Thursday 23th May 2019 with your completed entry form and entry fee. If you miss our club deadline, entries may be sent direct to the Falcon SC up until 24th August however you risk the meet being full.
Entry forms are in the squad register and race details are on the noticeboard.
For more details please refer to their website
Entries close on Tuesday 14th May, but don’t leave it till then just in case you have a problem getting in (not that people have, its been very smooth and easy so far).
You need to input your entries online using the links in the e-mail sent out to you – the final reminder e-mails to everyone who hasn’t entered went out Sat 11th around 10am.
Please make sure you enter or decline each session on the system so that we know you’ve at least seen the e-mails.
Every year during June/July CFSC holds its annual club championships. This year there are 4 galas over 3 weekends. These are Saturday 22nd June, Sunday 23rd June, Saturday 29th June and Saturday 6th July. This year the Saturdays are evenings galas and the Sunday is in the morning, all are held at Carlton Forum LC.
The Championships are open to all main squad, development squad and masters. The races you are eligible to enter are dependant on the age asat 31st December. You will also have needed to have joined the club on or before the 23rd April 2019
We charge a small fee of £6.00 per gala (£3.00 for 8 year old 25m races) which goes towards the pool hire costs.
This year the process of entering the championships has changed. Invitations will be sent out by email using our new SwimClub Manager app in the next week or so. Once you have entered races you will be sent an invoice with a link to enable you to pay online to make paying easier. However in exceptional circumstances you will still be able to pay by cash at the club desk. Please make sure you have a login in and have checked your details on SwimClub Manager! If you still need a login please email Martin at email@example.com or Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org with yours and your swimmers names. All entries need selecting and paying for by Wednesday 15th May at the latest.
We also have invitation races for the children having lessons on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. These races are one length of freestyle and the swimmers will be invited to swim by their teacher at their teachers discretion depending on ability. As a general rule these young swimmers will be in the last Tuesday and Thursday or the Monday lessons. The invitation race is free to enter.
Following the club championships we hold a presentation evening with disco in September to celebrate the swimmers achievements. All those who take part in the championships will receive an award on the night. We will be selling tickets nearer the time however it will be free for under 5s and club champs swimmers.
If you would like any further information please speak to your swimmers coach, teacher or ask at the club desk.
All swim times that we are aware of that swimmers have swum as a CFSC swimmer are now on SCM, if you enter galas that are not normally supported by the club then that is great but for the times to be entered onto the system and be able to count as club records you will need to let us know that you/your swimmer have attended the event.
Nova times (times you swim when swimming for Nova in a gala) are not eligible for club records. Neither are times if you swim for any other club.
Club records have been updated and there have been a few changes recently!
The schedule is now available for the Club Champs, see the Club Champs 2019 web page:- http://www.cfsc.co.uk/club-champs-2019/
We have the dates for HH for the next year. There may be additional ones.
Some sessions may be reserved for younger swimmers etc. invites will be sent out as normal.

Unfortunately due to the continued increase in pool costs the Club is increasing its weekly and monthly swim fees for the main squad as from 1st September 2018. The development squad fees will remain as before.
Weekly swim fees will increase from £9.00 to £10.00 for a multi swim
and the single swim will remain at £5.00
The monthly standing order will also increase from £34.00 to £36.00 per month as from the 1st September.
If you feel it would be more beneficial to pay by monthly standing order please enquire at the club desk.
