Our Lifesavers of the Day were James Madeley and Amy Young for their outstanding performances in both the SERCs and Speed events! It was also Madeley's debut in A Team and Amy's first ever competition. A big well done goes to them both!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the helpers and judges and to Bristol for hosting a brilliant Freshers Competiton!

We are very proud of everyone who competed and it was great to see all the hard work in training pay off. We are now looking forward to what our team will achieve at Sheffield competition in just under two weeks time!
The social theme was 'tight, bright, sparkles in the light' for anyone wondering what we look like in the photos!



Yesterday we took a team of returners to the Crawley Open Competition to compete in the Speeds events. It was a super successful day for the team and we came away with lots of pbs and medals!

Highlights included James Blaby taking gold in both 50m Manikin Carry and 100m Rescue Medley, Sam Kirkland winning gold in 100m Carry with Fins, gold in the Mixed Pool Lifesaver Relay, 3 golds in the Female Open Relays (Obs, Manikin and Medley), 2nd place in Open Speeds and 3rd Overall Club.

The competition was a great start to the season for the club and we look forward to what’s to come throughout the year!

To round off our committee introductions we would like to introduce you to our Development Squad Captain, Daniel and our Performance Squad Captain, Dom!

A Squad Captain is one person from each squad who is responsible for passing feedback from both squads to the Club Chair, Head Coach and Committee. They have a responsibility to assist the coaches by taking training, monitoring attendance and helping club members with goal setting and reviewing!

Both Dan and Dom are approachable and are happy for a chat if you have any issues or feedback for anything from training improvements or successes! They are there as a friendly face for all concerns! Both Dan and Dom at the start of term will be busy ensuring that you are happy and settling into your respective squads, so you can enjoy your time with us with as little discomfort as possible!! That’s a wrap for our 2018/2019 Committee Introductions!! We hope you have enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about us and what our club is all about. We can’t wait to meet and get to know a little bit more about you, come along to the taster session and give this page a follow so you can keep up to date with updates and key events!!

Mark and Chris will be around throughout the season in our SERC sessions to provide you with essential first aid training, whilst providing you with knowledge on how to react and respond effectively and efficiently in a first aid scenario.

As captains for our champion A Team and B Team last season, Mark and Chris are certainly up to date with their knowledge of first aid!! Their undeniable dedication to the club and wealthy knowledge has helped to develop SERC training over the past year and we look forward to seeing the training they have planned for us in the very near future!
