February 2019 Newsletter

Message from Dimitri, Chairman

February is traditionally an important month for competitive racing as many of our swimmers achieve entry times to compete in the prestigious Surrey County Championships! We are always immensely proud that our swimmers’ hard work through the fall season leads to their qualification in one of the fastest county championships in the country which see entries, year on year, increase in number. Qualification in these championships is testament to the swimmers’ commitment and hard work, and the continued success of the coaching programme.

Like last year, most of the races took place at one of the best swimming venues in the world: the London Aquatics Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  A venue which even our youngest swimmers appreciate for its importance.

I congratulate all the swimmers who entered; and thank their coaches and those who supported the club and the competition as team managers, officials and non-technical helpers. A true team effort!

As always, if you have any questions or comments, you can reach out to me or any member of the committee poolside or by e mail. Our contact details can be found on our website .

Message from Coach Martin, Head Coach

Surrey County Championships

The Surrey County Championships concluded the last weekend of February. It was incredibly competitive with fast times in all events contested. 

It was a very successful championship for the club with 28 of our swimmers finishing in the top eight and a lot of personal best times recorded.

FSC finished in 16thplace overall, with the girls gaining 14thplace and the boys 17th.  We had two medalists: Jordan Hammond gained third place in the boys’ 15 years 200m Butterfly; Annabel Kuipers also gained third place in the 17 and over 50m Breaststroke.

Full results are listed at the end of this newsletter.

A big well done to all of our FSC participants!

People news

I would like to express a big thank you to Summer Pepper on behalf of the coaching staff, committee members and club members for the years of service Summer has given to the club.

Summer left the club on Sunday, February 24thto move on and focus more on her school teaching position.

Summer swam competitively for the club then became a volunteer coach before attending Cardiff University. Upon graduation she returned to FSC and became a valued member of the coaching team. Summer has worked with most squads, most recently as head teacher of the Minnows squads.

We wish Summer all the very best in her future endeavors and, again, thank her for all of the time she has given to the club.
