Second Lockdown Swimmers have proved that time lost during lockdown can be recovered and with lots of land training activities whilst we're out of the pool, that will happen quicker.  Don't forget to take part in Chris's land training sessions and please get involved with Kate's Race to the North Pole challenge too.

We'll continue to keep you updated during lockdown and hope you all stay safe and well.
Land Training Dates This week's Zoom land training sessions are:

Monday 23rd November at 5.15 - 6.15pm

Wednesday 25th November at 5.15 - 6.15pm

Saturday 28th November at 10-11am

Remember that each land training session counts as 2km in the Race to the North Pole challenge.
Level X Race Results Thanks to everyone that volunteered to help last night at our Squad 1 Club Champs / Level X Racing.  Again, all went well - it was a great success, with fantastic planning - both in preparation and during the gala.

Results for both Squad 1 and Squad 2 can be found here and are also in the Members area of the website (under Club Championships).

Both sets of results have been uploaded to the Level X Leaderboard and you can view the Level X Leaderboard here.

Well done to all swimmers that took part - there were some great swims - and once again, a real testament to all the hard work the swimmers and Coaches have put in since our return to the pool.
Second Lockdown - Training fees Just to confirm that scheduled Go Cardless direct debit training fee payments have been paused and will be re-started when training resumes.

If you have any queries, please email our treasurer This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Lockdown Challenge and Zoom Meeting As we mentioned the other day, Kate has set another Lockdown Challenge and this one is called Race to the North Pole.
 
Any swimmers who would like to take part in this will need to join the Facebook group (or ask their parents to), where distances can be logged.  More information and rules regarding the challenge can also be found there.
 
The challenge is for the swimmers only this time and despite the change of season since the last one, we’re very much hoping that swimmers will get involved and keep moving during the next few weeks – and of course, log their kilometres!
 
In addition to this, swimmers in the development groups have asked Kate if she will resume her Development Zoom sessions during lockdown, which she’s happy to do.  All swimmers are welcome to this, but it will be aimed more for Squads 3, 4 and 5.  Meeting details have been emailed out.
Self-Isolation Reporting If your swimmer needs to self-isolate, please let us know by completing our online form here.  This will ensure that the Coaches are aware which training sessions you cannot attend.
Kit Shop As we no longer have the facility for selling kit, if you're looking for any kit, please see the shop on our website, where the remaining stock is being sold. 
Judge 1 Qualification Please see the email sent out previously (copy here) regarding becoming a Level 1 Judge.  It would help greatly if you can get involved in this.  Remember - swimming is for life, not just for Christmas! - so if you're likely to be spending the next few years watching your child compete at galas, why not consider becoming an official.  If you're interested in getting qualified, please email us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Lost Property Please remember that we have a Lost Property section on the website.  There have been a few things added to this recently, so, if your swimmer has lost anything during training sessions, please check this on our website or here.  
Volunteering Opportunities As always, we have several opportunities for you to get involved with the Club.  Full details of vacant volunteer roles within the Club is on the website.  
Medical Records Can you please ensure that any updates to Medical Records for swimmers are communicated to our Membership Secretary.
Fundraising by Shopping Please consider raising funds for our club via the Easy Fundraising online service. Shopping doesn't cost you a penny more, but as you make purchases online shops make a donation to the club. All you do is register (it's good to click the "Find & Remind" button) and start shopping. Please give it a go and encourage others to do so too – it's effectively free money to benefit the members of our club! Thank you.  More information is on the website, or via the link http://www.altrinchamsc.org.uk/index.php/club-information/fundraising
