Please remember your child will be able to stay with you in the sports hall during the day. When it’s time to swim you will be able to go to the spectators area and your swimmer will line up ready to go round to the pool.

Club Champs 2019

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 secretary@cfsc.co.uk or Kathryn at treasurer@cfsc.co.uk 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.
