Its Deja Vu, all over again - Cheam Marcuda win Octopus League Round 2Octopus 2014 Round 2

Saturday 22nd March saw the second round of this 6 round league, with Cheam Marcuda swimmers taking their second consecutive win.  There were some very close races between Cheam, Bromley, Croydon and Edenbridge.

Throughout the gala there were only a handful of points separating the top 4 teams.  Cheam went into the last few races pulling out all the stops and taking the lead.

The noise from inside Beckenham Spa was amazing with all the teams wanting to win.

1st places went to: Tezel, Joe, Agnes, Ethan, Emily and Hannah

1st time to the league was Etti

Well swum everyone.

Cheam Pool Closure (updated 8/3/14)

It has now been confirmed that the Pool at Cheam will be closed for major works to the roof.

Currently it is scheduled to close on 17th March 2014 until December 2014 to enable these works to take place.

Both club nights currently at Cheam will be moved to Westcroft Leisure Centre in Carshalton during the repairs.

Tuesday session times will remain the same with widths swimmers at 6:30-7pm, lengths from 7-8pm and squad swimming from 8-9:30pm

Friday session times will change slightly, as we were unable to secure the same start time, however we have been offered an hour and a half for our session, during which we will be ale to offer extra training on starts and turns and extra squad training. The Friday session time will be from 7:00-8:30pm and swimmers who do not wish to swim for the whole 1.5 hour session do not have to stay in for the duration of the session.

All other sessions will remain unaffected by the closure and will run as normal.

Of course we know these arrangements are not ideal for everyone, and if you feel this may make attendance a problem please do not hesitate to contact us. Anyone who would like to change sessions during the pool closure please let Fiona or your coach know, so we can advise on the best session/s to attend.

Victory for Marcuda at Cranleigh and GodalmingCranleigh & Godalming

We had a busy weekend with two Open Meets in 48 hours.

On Saturday 24th we competed at Godalming against a huge team of Godalming SC swimmers. Many swimmers achieved PBs and came back with medals and ribbons.

Heather gained 3 golds, Hallie won 2 golds and a silver and a Surrey Qualifying time, Poppy 2 golds, a silver and a bronze, Shantel a silver, bronze and 4th place ribbon, Mitch a silver & bronze, Jordan a silver & 5th place ribbon, Isobel gained ribbons for 4th & 5th places and Lily got two ribbons for 6th place. Joseph and Fiona were the only swimmers in their age groups and therefore won all their events!

On Sunday morning a smaller team competed at Cranleigh, with a high level of competition in each age group. Hallie won the gold medal for 50m breaststroke and gained silvers in both the 100m & 200m breaststroke, as well as ribbons for 4th in 50m backstroke and 5th in 200m backstroke. Poppy won the 50m backstroke and gained a bronze in 50m freestyle, as well as a ribbon for 4th in 50m breaststroke. Mitch won a ribbon for 6th place in 50m backstroke. Joseph won gold for 50 free and fly, silver in the 100 IM and a ribbon for 4th place in the 50 breast.

2014 Membership Fees

We are pleased to confirm that we are able to freeze our fees at 2012 levels for another year into 2014.

All fees must be paid by standing order. Attached is a standing order request form which provides all the information required for online banking, or you can print out and take the form to your bank for them to set up the standing order. Please ask your bank to put your child's name as a reference on the payment.

For ease of reference the current fees are shown below.

Depending on how many training sessions you attend the monthly fees for 2013 will be:

22.00  for 1 night per week

33.00  for 2 nights per week

39.00  for 3 or more nights per week    

August will remain on a Pay as you Go basis and therefore no monthly subscription is due for August. You may therefore either set up your standing order to pay Jan - July and September - December, or it may be easier to set it up Jan - Nov.

Each session attended in August should be paid for individually at 4 per session.

The Annual Membership Fee (which includes ASA and London Region fees) for 2013 will remain the same as it has done for the past few years. Swimmers under 16 years of age pay 50 per year with a reduction of 5 per sibling (up to a maximum of 3 siblings) off this fee. Swimmers who are over 16 years old pay 12.50 per year. Swimmers who are taught in the teaching pool are exempt from this fee

The Annual Membership Fee must be paid by cash or cheque at your child's first swimming session in January. Fiona at Cheam and Anne at Morden/Banstead will collect this fee.
