Regan Smith: You don’t know what is possible (until you do it) Article by Olivier Leroy Did you keep up with all the goings on at the FINA World Championships last week? There were some serious, serious, swims. Federica Pellegrini throwing down a gold medal in the 200m freestyle, medaling for the eighth consecutive time at Worlds in the event. At the age of 30, the world record holder continues to throw down world-beating times. Caeleb Dressel being exceptionally Caeleb Dressel-y. Two years ago he won 7 gold medals at...

Navid has included his contact details at the end of the article should anyone have...

Although it was published in the Summer Champs program, we wanted to direct everyone's attention to the first draft of the 2019 Autumn/Winter Competition Schedule. BSC 2019 Autumn/Winter Competition Schedule- (1st draft) This will be updated on the web-site over the coming weeks but we'd like everyone to have a look and make sure the important dates (including the early MKJL date and all three rounds of the Arena League) are kept clear and prioritized.

We can now announce the training schedule for the 2019-2020 season as we've finally received confirmation from Virgin Active on what pool space we've been allocated.  We have made some small changes to further maximize each squad's time and space in the pool and are excited that we've been able to secure (even a little) space on Sunday afternoons.  Squad allocation emails will be sent out shortly as we will have a number of swimmers being promoted within the club. The schedule below will soon be posted to the "Squads/Training...
