We resumed our full training schedule at RiversMeet, Gillingham, on 13 April, the day after the centre itself reopened as part of the latest stage of the government’s easing of lockdown.
There was an excellent turnout of 33 swimmers, including Pre-Turbos, and eight Performance Squad for their dedicated two-lane slot the following evening.
Our new recruitment flyer is here.
“We’re again in RiversMeet’s debt for slotting us straight back in with our regular training schedule almost as soon as they restart themselves – the third time now they have done this,” said NDTSC Chair Alex Wynter.
“As we inch back to normality our coaches will be giving the children time to regain their pre-lockdown fitness, then we can start to think about club time-trials, and – everyone hopes – a return to competition later this year.
“Any and all local youngsters aged from eight to eighteen with an interest in or experience of competitive swimming should get in touch with our secretary, Nikki Hopkins, at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Head Coach, Rich Brocklehurst, at email@example.com.”
