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.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Parents, swimmers and coaches,

Following the government’s guidelines set out on Monday 16 March 2020 to avoid all unnecessary social gatherings, and with a number of families already in self-isolation, the decision to cancel all training has been taken with immediate effect.

Starting from tonight, Tuesday 17 March 2020.


FEES

From the 1st April please ensure that you have cancelled your standing order for squad fees.  However, the club has other financial obligations as well as pool hire.  We are asking for a nominal monthly fee of £2.50 per swimmer; we appreciate there is no swimming and therefore, this is a voluntary payment.  Please help to support your club.

We will keep everyone updated when we have any further information.

Keep safe
