Thanks to our fantastic group of coaches, officials and volunteers, CWSC Advanced Development, Regional and National Performance were able to compete in the Swim England Level X meet before lockdown 2.0. Proudly, CWSC was one of the only clubs in the country that organised a race structure where swimmers could race every event they wished - their results did not disappoint! Anticipation was high going into Level X due to the amount of time the swimmers had had out of the water for lockdown 1.0. However, their finesse, training effort...

After 4 months of lockdown, it is fantastic to see all squads training again and enjoying being back in the water. The return to a new normal of training has been a huge success, with swimmers fully engaged and observing the social distancing guidelines.

What a fantastic weekend of swimming the club have just had! Swimmers have been racing all over the Country! Saturday saw the much anticipated National Arena League B Final. The club went in a respectable 6th place (out of 10) against some major City program's - City of Cardiff for example. Leaving no stone unturned, the swimmers dug deep despite being in heavy training. There was a super effort all round, especially from those swimming multi events and age groups due to gaps - Veronica Venuti, Thomasina Grove, Henry Gray,...

Swimmers attacked the last weekend of the Middlesex County Champs with enthusiasm and finesse. It was extremely pleasing to see every swimmer race tough and swim their hearts out, regardless of how many events they had. True champions swimming back to back races throughout the weekend, were teammates Victoria Bunimovich and Veronica Venuti. The girls raced the most events across the weekend and scored the highest club points for final and podium placings. A fantastic day Saturday from both girls, you would never have guessed that they both swam an...

Half of the National Performance Squad qualified for this year's short course National Championships. The youngest qualifying age was 16 years and under, the eldest being Open. The young cohort of CW swimmers swam well above their age, qualifying in more than one event. Sheffield hosted this year's Championships and the 7 swimmers we had qualify were determined to make an impact. Most swimmers had set life time best times in November ahead of this event. To race to personal bests again a month later was superb! Day 1 saw...
