On to weekend 2, and Crystal Palace, its the longer distances, IM's and the new Olympic events this weekend. Please forward this to your coaches, swimmers and parents.

The first point as with last weekend is If a swimmer has qualified, please stress the importance of competing, lots of other swimmers have been disappointed, please don't waste the space.  We had fewer withdrawals than last year, so thank you. 

Medal Presentations

The medal presentations went down very well last weekend, with a 90% approval rating on our snap twitter poll, so we'll keep them in the programme. Its HDW for all events this weekend, please ensure you attend the presentations at the end of each session if you are 1,2 or 3. It's a great achievement to make the final, never mind the podium. Swimmers train harder than most other sports, and rarely have podium opportunities, so make sure you enjoy the fruits of your efforts. 

Coach Refreshments

This year, coaches with poolside passes will be able to join the officials for food at the break down in the green room, down the stairs opposite the gym.


Warm-down is available in all sessions.

In the unfortunate event that withdrawal is necessary (remember there are many swimmers that could have taken the space in most events), You must withdraw before the warmup starts . Please withdraw at the medal table.

Car Park
The top car park is open but does have a height restriction (cars only), drive straight ahead to enter. However last week the exit gate was closed early. All parking is free.

Most of the area in the last few miles around Crystal Palace seems to be 20mph speed restrictions,, so please allow enough time. If you are unfamiliar with Crystal Palace , here is a link to the map  You should enter from the western side of the park via Anerley Hill.

Coach Passes
Many coach passes have been issued, the remainder will be at the entrance desk

Warm- UP Times
The warm-up times for weekend 2 are below


For those of you that haven't been to Crystal Palace, it's a bit colder poolside than most pools, so ensure you have suitable warm clothing for poolside.

11 Year Old Development Pathway

Many thanks to all those who attended the Workshop last weekend.  Just to clarify the Camps are all on Sundays namely 28th April, 7th July, and 27th October.
