At the Start of each competitive year the club elects a girl and boy junior and senior club captain. Junior (12 and under) captains are chosen by the coaches at the start of the competitive year. Candidates for senior boys and girls captains are nominated by the coaches and are voted in by the senior (12 and over) swimming membership. See what your current captains have to say about their roles and ambitions for the coming year.
Extending back as far as official records are available.
Like most other competitive swimming clubs, Newbury organises it’s swimming activities within squads in order to group together swimmers of similar technical ability. We have seven squads: A squad, B squad, Youth, Masters, Challengers, Sprinters, Cruisers. Each squad has individual training objectives and there are generally technical requirements for entry into each squad.
Derived from times achieved over the previous twelve months from the day that the ranking list is updated. The list is usually updated once per month and is based upon all officially recorded times that have been entered onto the club’s database. Ages are also defined on the day that the list is updated so swimmers may change from one age group to another as the year progresses.
