Congratulations little Putts!

Congratulations to all the little Putts who competed in our first Round of Junior League. Such a great event to get the young swimmers competing and to learn whats involved with competing. I have to say Thank you to the Parent Coaches who insisted I did not need to go as everything was under control for the event, I have to say it was nice to be at home for once, although Thanks to Julia Matthews who filmed each race and sent to me- our own PSC live stream so I could actually watch the races. Looked like a great night and good fun!

This is a new division they have created, which means for any club wishing to join the league, they have to start in this Division, so we will come across large clubs along the way, which is all great experience for the swimmers, and parents get a greater unders...

Ian Dickson running London Marathon for PSC

PSC’s own – Ian Dickson is pounding the pavements of the London Marathon this year to raise money for PSC’s Disability section. Ian says:

“The main reason for my participation in the London Marathon is to raise funds for our disability section. Working with children primarily with physical and mental disability just shows that the club wants to support those who may not have joined a club if this wasn’t on offer. When you see what these kids put themselves through, training alongside able bodied swimmers being part of a great team shows what a great club this is.

However this all comes at a cost. Pool and Gym time along with kit and equipment needs can make this a very costly excercise...

Changes to Club Championship dates for 2017 and exciting news about Junior League!

It has been a busy time behind the scenes organising the competitions calendar for 2017 with a major new addition to the calendar this year!

Following on from our successes in the Arena League last year we are now entering the Milton Keynes Junior League this summer. For those that don’t know about this league, it is for 12 and under swimmers and is a similar format to Arena League, where you compete in a number of individual races and relays for your club. It is a great development opportunity for our younger swimmers and those that are picked will have the honour of representing Putteridge at a team event.

We have had some challenges organising Club Championships for 2017 and unfortunately we have had to cancel the gala set for the 6th May due to an error made by the bookings team at W...
