Synchro competitions require that swimmers have their hair gelled for a routine. It is often better to arrive already prepared to save time at the competition. There will be a gel demonstration and practice session on Sunday 22nd September at 6:15pm as part of the regular Leyland training session. Please let Fiona know if you will be attending.
Congratulations to our synchro coaches Candice, Carol and Sarah who have successfully completed the Swim England Assistant Coach qualification.
REMINDER: There will be no training on Sunday 23rd June due to the Warwickshire Championships.
It was a big day on Friday for CoPA’s synchro swimmers Chloe, Evie, Lola and Natasha as they took part in the synchro Beacon Games in Aldershot to represent the North West region. The girls were part of the North West’s Beacon Squad – the first stage of the England Talent programme for younger swimmers – and the regional team also included swimmers from City of Salford and Stockport synchronised swimming clubs.
The girls worked incredibly well as a team and their efforts were rewarded as CoPA swimmer Evie took a bronze medal for her individual score in the 13-15 age group category. The NW Beacon team also finished third overall with a score of 56.27, less than a point behind the overall winners, Walsall Beacon.
An outstanding effort and great result – well done to all our NW Beacon swimmers.
