Fabulous Results for CoPA at National Championships
CoPA had a wonderful weekend at the 2022 National Championships – the first National event for our junior and senior swimmers since 2019. After an especially long period of time out of the pool for our senior swimmers the results were especially impressive. This was the largest number of entries CoPA had entered for many years with multiple personal bests in a number of events, which was especially impressive when considering the exceptionally high volume of overall entries! Huge thanks go to Fiona and all the coaches for helping to prepare the swimmers ahead of the competition and to our club volunteers and judge Camilla who helped at the competition. Full results are detailed below.
Technical Solo (out of 23):
- Rhea – 4th
- Natasha – 13th
Free Solo (out of 28):
- Rhea – 5th
- Marisa – 15th

CoPA Swimmers Selected for England Synchro Squads
CoPA are very proud to announce that our synchro swimmers Chloe and Natasha have been selected for 2 separate England national artistic swimming (synchro) squads. After 3 phases of trials, their hard work and dedication to their training has been justly rewarded with Natasha making the England Junior squad and Chloe making the England Youth squad. This is the first time CoPA has had swimmers on two national squads at the same time, and their success is due in no small part to the expertise and professionalism of head coach Fiona Haworth. We are immensely proud of our swimmers and look forward to following their progress.
