Thank you to our retiring club captains, Dan and Jess Moore, who have done a fantastic job and are always a shining example to our younger swimmers.  Congratulations to Jack Wilson and Olivia Wallace who were appointed club captains for 2015. 

Our growing band of young volunteer coaches were also recognised for their hard work over the year - we are pleased to see so many older swimmers wanting to give something back to the club.

Thanks to our special guest presenters – Kate and Denniss Bull, our President Colin Holmes and Robert Sansom from our main sponsor Frank Key.

Many thanks to all those who helped at Club Champs this year in whatever capacity.  These events can’t run without the support of volunteers and as people move on in the club we are looking for parents of the younger swimmers to step forward and fill some of these jobs.  Don’t be afraid!!   Please speak to Kath Needham about how you can help.

And finally, there are two people who deserve a special mention because without them none of this success would be possible.  Kath Needham, our Chairman, who co-ordinated the Club Champs and organised the presentation evening and to Mark Moore, our Head Coach, who has had his most successful year in his time at CABSC.

Boston Open Meet 2015

2015 got off to a great start for CABSC at the Boston Open last weekend.  We took 50 swimmers from across the squads and despite the Christmas break an amazing 197 PB’s were achieved so a big well done to you all!  We had a number of swimmers achieve last minute County Qualifying times and the medal table finished with CABSC winning 26 golds, 29 silvers and 27 bronze.  JDS swimmers Amelie Park, Neave Kielty, Tyler Moodley and Maddie Benton competed in their first open meet – well done girls!

Thank you to the coaching team Mark, Julie and Katey; the Team Managers Sara, Karen, Hannah, Nicola and to Helen for getting all our entries submitted in time!

Christmas Training Camp 2014

CDS and County squad swimmers put aside their toys from Santa and got back into the pool on 27th December for the CABSC Christmas training camp.  Over the course of four days, swimmers focused on stroke technique working on drills, starts and turns.  This was a good opportunity for those competing at Boston in January to really improve their strokes in a bid to make those last minute county qualifying times.  The highlight of the camp has to be the front crawl demonstrations from CABSC and Loughborough based swimmer Karl Morgan who took a break from his training schedule to show how drills should be performed and provided feedback to the swimmers.  Karl has recently swum at the Scottish Nationals and swam an amazing 47 seconds on 100 Free!   Ex CABSC swimmer and Nova Development coach Rebecca Barsby also came along to demonstrate breaststroke drills and turns.   Rebecca also took the swimmers through a land warm up and we would now like to see swimmers in these squads arriving 10 minutes early to sessions to carry out the exercises.  Big thanks to both of them for giving up their time at such a busy period. 

Mark was really pleased to see swimmers improving over the sessions and remembering the key points of the drills.  This needs to continue in training!  Well done to Elspeth Moran in CDS who won the prize for most improved swimmer.

Feedback from the swimmers and parents has been very positive and Mark and the coaching team were pleased to see the swimmers putting into practice what they had learned at the recent Boston Open Meet. 

The camp wouldn't have been able to go ahead without the help of the coaching team so a very big thank you to Mark, Julie, Jess, Dan and Katey.
