Swim Parent Advice | Tips for Parents of young Swimmers

Swimming parents’ top ten dos and don’ts

1. Do be supportive – rain or shine!

Whether your child comes first or last, sets five PBs or none, you should still love and support them the same. One of your most important roles as a swimming parent is to provide emotional support during the tough times, of which there will be many. Let your child know that they are still loved, no matter how badly they think they swam. And likewise, try not to let them get cocky when they win.

2. Don’t pressure your child

Remember that swimming is your child’s hobby. If your child has their own reasons and own goals for participating, they will be far more motivated to excel and therefore far more successful...

Club Champs

Dear Parents and Swimmers

Thank you for joining us and taking part in the first of this year’s PSC club championships. This was our first ever club champs at Inspire. The swimmers did an amazing job and there were some fantastic performances. It was lovely to see our young swimmers, some at their first ever gala competing and having fun. A BIG thank you to all the volunteers, technical team, officials and coaches, without you we can not run the gala.
As you may of noticed, the night did not run as smoothly as we would like and overran by an hour. Due to circumstances out of our control and which centre staff couldn’t rectify, the electronic timing and scoreboard were not in use...

Land Training Notification

Currently the club has been subsidizing land training. Up until now the cost of land training has been £12 per month with swimmers attending any number of sessions they wish (which has been very encouraging and results transferring). Since this time we have continued to add more and more sessions at no extra cost to members. However now we need to expand even more and also restrict the number of sessions for some who are doing 3/4 sessions per week.

We have now added a further hour to a Friday for those who are beginners. I have put together a session allocation for everyone taking in to account ability, development and progression...
