Nipper Newsletter October 2018

2018 Session
What a year it has been! We have been to Penzance, Cardiff, Hayle, Portreath and Holywell Bay to take part in our Cornish and National competitions. In every competition we have scored more points and finished higher up in the overall team positions than in 2017, so well done to you all! We have been lucky enough to have great Friday night sessions as well, with lots of that warm sunny stuff, on some nights having nearly 90 nippers in the water. So from me, thank you very much for a great 2018.

Thank you
I would like to say a huge thank you to all the Nipper coaches who have put in so much time and energy into coaching our nippers this year; I really couldn’t do it without you. Thank you to all those who turn up help with water cover each week, ensuring all the children stay safe. Also thank you to the mums and dads for helping out whenever asked, it is true team spirit that makes this club so great.

Back to the pool
We will start back in the pool on Friday 2nd of November with the same format as last year.
5.30 – 6.15pm 8 – 10 year Girls
6.15 – 7.00pm 8 – 10 year Boys
7.00 – 7.45pm 11 – 13 year Girls
7.45 – 8.30pm 11 – 13 year Boys
Please remember, when we start back you will swim in your age groups for next year, so if you were U10s this summer you will swim as a U11 when we start in November.

Friday nights will now be cash free, swimming will be paid for in blocks using the club membership cloud.

Membership for 2019
We have loved coaching all our nippers this year and look forward to seeing you next year. If you feel that nippers is not for you and you don’t wish to return, that is absolutely fine (sad but fine). If this is the case, could you please let me know; at the moment we have a big waiting list, so if you are not returning, I can invite someone from the waiting list to come and have a go. If you’re not returning or want to discuss anything you can email me at

Presentation evening
