Hutton pool remains closed for maintenance so there will be no further training until the new year. Further information will be provided as soon as it is known. Club training will resume at all other pools, beginning 5th January, regardless of whether Hutton is operational or not by that time.
CoPA is very proud to announce that synchro swimmer Natasha has been invited to join the England Youth synchronised swimming squad for 2020 following successful trials last weekend. Natasha trialled alongside 50 of the top athletes in the country in her age category and was amongst the top 20 who were selected.

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.
