Coaches Report

Congratulations to all swimmers competing at the Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh. The four day meet was an opportunity for the performance group swimmers to compete against the best in Scotland. The team finished a very good seventh place which was well done, especially as our best swimmer Robbie Renwick was not competing. Robbie is in the final preparation for the olympics and was attending an team GB weekend however his teammates stepped up and fought hard in all relays.
Elite Performance swimmers an impressive five individual medals and two relays medals.

Daniel Scott returns to form after a hip operation last year to win the Gold medal in the 50m butterfly. Dan then backed up his 50m success with a silver in the 100m butterfly in a finger tip finish losing the gold by .07 of a second!

Jamie Graham took the 100m breaststroke Gold medal win with an impressive controlled race. Jamie then continued his winning form with a silver in the 50m fly and bronze in the 50m breaststroke completing his full set of medals.

The two boys then teamed up to win a silver and bronze medal in the 4x100m free and medley relays.

During the championships the group broke several records:

Anna Fleming: 100 free - equalled her own record

Team Managers Report

Wednesday night saw a slightly smaller team of 8 swimmers leave Glasgow for 4 days of swimming in Edinburgh. We were staying in the Pollock Halls which were situated right next to the Commonwealth Pool. This was a perfect base for the swimmers, giving them the freedom to come and go as they pleased and enabling them to get in as much rest time as they required in between swims.

Once again the trip proved to be great value for money and because we had our own pantry area it meant that we could do our own cooking, meaning the swimmers were fed as soon as they had finished for the day and they didn’t need to wait to be served in a restaurant. I had prepared a number of meals before we left Glasgow, so we just needed to heat them up each night.

The really positive thing for me we was the real team spirit that our swimmers showed throughout the meet. For once we were by far the loudest club on the poolside and it was lovely to see everyone up supporting each other during their races, especially during the finals and relays.

We had no real issues throughout the 4 days, the only slight problem we had was that a couple of the swimmers forms had been marked with the wrong session, meaning that they turned up in the morning when they should have been swimming in the afternoon. When we became aware of this we double checked on the programme when each swimmer was due to swim. The format of the meet was always going to cause confusion, but it is worthwhile stressing to swimmers that they also have a responsibility to check draft programmes and check with staff but also for the team manager/coaches to double check as well.

All in all it was a very positive competition, for me over the past year it has been lovely seeing the swimmers mature in their attitude to competitions, their understanding of eating properly and also getting a good rest when they can. The swimmers I took away behaved impeccably and it was a pleasure to be the team manager!!!
