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.

Huge congratulations to our 12&under and 13-15 swimmers who competed at NAG’s last weekend. Special congratulations go to our youngest club member Imogen for her Bronze medal in the 9-10 figures!! It was great to see our swimmers back to competing nationally after so long – with some swimmers competing nationally for the first time. Big thanks go to Fiona for getting the girls ready for the competition and to our volunteers who helped make the competition a huge success. Full results can be found below:
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.
Huge congratulations to our synchro swimmers Chloe & Marisa who have qualified for phase 3 of the England Youth trials! An intensive four day training camp now awaits them. Pictured here outside Hengrove Leisure centre in Brisol on day 1 of their trials!
Great work and good luck girls, CoPA are very proud of you.
We are pleased to announce the 2021 synchro summer camp, which will take place at Hutton between 23rd August and 26th August. This is an exciting opportunity for swimmers to receive additional coaching and refine skills in preparation for the new season of competitions and grades.
