Dear All We are delighted to advise that subject to the green light from Boris, we can restart training at our main Leisure Centre Pools from 12 April. This applies to all swimmers including those who have turned 18 during this school year, i.e. Year 13. Unfortunately, due to the social easing plans we will not be able to open sessions to our master’s swimmers until 17th May, but these will resume on this date, if the reopening eases as per the current timetable. Those in our teaching programme have...

We expect to be able to welcome our...

It is both sad and frustrating to be under lockdown once more but I think its clear there was no other option. We will get back to the water as soon as possible but in the meantime we will offer our virtual land training to all members and their families. We would really love for everyone to join these as it helps keep a base level of fitness...

Please enjoy the family time as best you can and take the moment to remember there are more important things going on in our lives. I'll take this opprtunity to...

After Boris and his band of merry men announced the end of the current restrictions from next week, we can confirm that we will be returning to training from Wednesday, December 2nd. Both Northcroft and Hungerford sessions will resume as per pre-Lockdown2. Once again, we will be asking for swimmers to sign in as you did before. Please, not signing in prior to the session may mean you're not allowed to swim irrespective of numbers in the pool - this goes for all squads. We will also be asking swimmers...

Dear swimmers and parents, It’s lovely to see so many of you back in the pool and it was lovely to see so many take up the August sessions at Crosfields School. From a coaching prospective, it’s great to be back by the pool where we belong. Due to the current climate we find ourselves in, we have had to make slight adjustments to the squad structure and I want to give you an update on some of the changes. Janet Hopkins has now stepped down from teaching Cruiser and...
