Reading Results and Club Championships

Well done to everyone that swam at Reading Novices under London Squad, we did really well as a club and won several medals. Huge congratulations to Antonina Woznica who came first in her section of 130 swimmers; she achieved a very high score of 56.3981.

  • Our 9-12yrs and 13-18yrs teams both won bronze medals.
  • We cleared the board with gold, silver and bronze in the figures.

One of our youngest swimmers Shameiah Nanton won a silver medal in her 8-10 year age group so a big well done to her. Her hard work paid off. The full results can be found here.

Following the Reading event and also the improvisation competition we have also now updated the Club Championships leader board (you can view the updated one here). Shameiah, Carla, Irene, Florence, Rosie and Alexandra are currently leading in their respective group so well done to them. There is plenty of time to pick up more points and climb the leader board.

100% pass at grading day

Congradulations to the swimmers who passed their grades in Hertford today.

Rosie Rallings achieved a silver standard achieving a score of 6.37 in her grade 4.  Rosie has already qualified as a National Swimmer but a silver standard is what she was aiming for and is a good achievement.

Shameiah Nanton is one of Aquavisions youngest swimmers.  She did very well at her grading today and achieved a silver standard in her grade 1 with a score of 6.38.  Shameiah showed good flexibility to the judges which is an aim for all swimmers.

Emma Yeo passed her grade 2 with a good score of 5.46.  Emma is in the London Development squad which aims to help swimmers to achieve National Standard.  Well done Emma you are nearly there.

Claire Kelly has been training with the 13 to 15 competitive squad and is now a qualified member as she passed her grade 3 today.  Claire achieved a bronze level and will now work on skill 4 figures in preparation for National Age Groups.

Aimee Preston has now qualified as a 15 to 18 yrs National Age Group Swimmer.  Aimee passed her grade 4 with a score of 5.74 which is very close to a silver achievement.  Aimee will now concentrate on grade 5 in preparation for National Age Groups.

 

Club Championships Leader Board

We have now updated the Aquavision Club Championships leader board after the recent skill levels and second round of club championships. Our current leaders in each category are Ola, Carla, Irene, Florence, Rosie and Alexandra so a huge well done to them. There are lots of swimmers not far behind so try your best to pick up more points at  the Reading Competition, Beacon Games and Middlesex Championships.

The leader board can be viewed here.

Changes to Easter Camps 8th-12th April

We have had to make some changes to the Easter camps due to swimmers availability for teams and there has also been some changes to figure sessions due to lack of swimmer booking. Please check the schedules to see the changes.

Forest School/ College Pool and feel good centre

I have attached below the camps for Easter

We have 4 types of camps

Click here to see the changed schedules – Please email ASAP about booking and if you have any questions. The timetable is complicated so Rachel will be down at the pool most nights this week if you have any questions or need help deciding what sessions are best.

Girls that are in lessons should be looking at the camp 1 timetable.

Also if you like to mix and match figure, land and swimming camps let us know and we can work out the best cost for you.

There is also some privates sessions available for both synchro skills and swimming. Please email about these.
