For Aquavision and London Squad Swimmers.
Due to snow and difficult traffic conditions, today’s swimming is cancelled.
First and foremost, well done to everyone who competed in the Nationals this year, you should all be very proud of yourselves.
We did incredibly well winning four medals:
Alex Weir & Christina Maciejewski were able to swim their duet in 15-18 category and the 13-15 competitive team came 6th place out of 17 with a very respectable routine score of 59.5333.
We also are very excited that three of our girls: Rosie Rallings, Carla Pietrafesa and Lily Halasi have been invited to trial for England.
Thank you to all the volunteers (parents and team mates), who dedicated their time to ensuring that the competition ran smoothly (from coaching and team managing to helping with hair and assisting with the running of the event).
Arrived at Gloucester for 2017 Nationals. Good luck to all the girls and boys this weekend.
A huge thank you to every one who attended the recent Figure Grading events. We had some great results: Natalie Gilbert achieved a bronze in Grade 1 figures; Grade 2 bronze successes were also achieved by Annabella Sangiorgio, Hannah Ogunniyi, Jessica Howard, Shamaieh Nanton and Genevieve O-Dell; Anagnese Pietrafesa achieved a silver in Grade 3 figures; Thiri Thein and Megan Parker achieved a silver and Antonia Markus and Anna Sagoo achieved a bronze in Grade 4 figures and Alicia Day achieved a bronze in Grade 5 figures.
We are organising our Aquavision Annual Awards Evening on Friday, 20th October at Orford House, Orford Road, E17.
We would appreciate it if you could email Ford Ford to let him know whether you are coming so that we can organise food for the evening. Paul’s email address is [email protected]
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Privates and small groups available with Jenny Gray
There has been a lot of notices about training in Feb, particularly as we have a lot of activity at the weekends. The notices that have been sent have been summarised below. It is very important that the swimmers support the development of our coaching team and book into the first two weekends in Feb as the course can’t run without swimmers.
Secondly note there is no normal training at the college during half term. Lesson swimmers have been offered additional sessions and there is training for squads during this week, so check the list below
The half term camp is very quiet at the moment and we need to make final arrangements for coaches so please do not leave your booking any longer. Closing date will be 5th Feb for half term training. Solos, duets and privates will be available throughout half term week.
Private sessions for Feb will be available to book from 2nd February and will be posted on the website.
Skill assessments – We have done some assessments over the last few weeks and have a list of swimmers wanting to be assessed. These swimmers will be given priority if they are assessed as ready to do a grading. We do have a limited number of assessors and will have to be selective on who we send to grading’s in the initial months. Closing date to book assessment will be 5th Feb.
