This weekend saw swimmers across Black Hats, Advanced Development, Regional and National Performance swim OUTSTANDING life time bests to collect multiple medals and CLUB RECORDS at the Wycombe L3 and Team Bath L1 meet. Wycombe: Damjan Kisic maintained momentum from a successful Counties, where he matched most of his short course times with his first long course hit out. His 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke stood out and were a great reward for all the hard training he has been delivering. His team mate, new to RP and going very...

Over the last few weekends our clubs Age Group swimmers (13 years + under) have hit a record amount of GOLD medals and over 100 top 8 finishes across the County. The Championships saw our club finish over 200 points clear of any other club in Middlesex, dominating the Championships with skills, results and resilience.  Training through the Championships was essential for our swimmers, building into the long course season after Christmas - no emphasis was put on results for the County Championships, just execution of processes and swimming with...

Last weekend saw the clubs Youths conquer a HUGE milestone of dominance at the Middlesex County Championships. Swimming a class above most neighbouring clubs, the young swimmers swam themselves and the club extremely proud - well done all. Having spent the last 4 months of the winter cycle refining their skills and developing a suitable background of work for the rest of the year, the competition was seen as a good first 'hit out' of long course racing. The expectation was that the swimmers (in hard work) would race raw and...

What a weekend for the NP and RP swimmers at Hillingdon. A true reflection of all their effort around skills and commitment to training over the last 15 weeks.  With personal bests being smashed every time somebody stood on the blocks, momentum and drive was at an ultimate high all weekend across the team. The class and focus of the team has made it hard to select a few swimmers that ‘stood out’... Lavinia Ricca was exceptional in her freestyle and backstroke events...swimming close to times that would have qualified...

Club swimmer Cameron van der Burgh has just claimed GOLD at the Fina World sc Championships in China.   The hardest of his two entered events, Cameron had to emotionally control himself through 2x100m breaststrokes yesterday in order to qualify for the final today. Starting off 9th with the heat swim, going in to the final 6th, Cam had it all under control and dominated the first 75m of the final. Proving he is the worlds best with his race processes and underwater phases, his rates were spot on with 15m to go. You'll...

There was more successful club representation at the Wycombe L3 meet last weekend from some National Performance swimmers and most of the Regional Performance squad.  Friday evening saw some swimmers compete in their first ever 800m or 1500m race. The distance events are not only a measure of fitness and work ethic, but also require a level of maturity when racing. Despite the 'first time' anxiety for some, all swimmers had a solid first hit out. The boys 1500m in particular was fantastic to watch with Edward Whittles, Mehmet Zeren, Henry Gray...

Last weekend saw an abundance of CWSC swimmers shine bright across London, in both Guildford and Hitchin. With over 70 up and coming swimmers at the Hitchin meet on the 18th November, coaches were full of praise not only for skills and racing, but camaraderie and team spirit also. Great skills = Great results = Happy swimmers - well done team.  With many swimmers racing their peers, CWSC showed dominance across the younger age groups. Such depth bodes a fantastic future for the club. Racing your peers in the same heat...
