The Somerset ASA County Championships take place alongside the Regional Championships at Weymouth on the 28 June with a taster event for those wishing to have a go at 750m and other distances for the experienced swimmers – 1.5km, 3km and 5km. Open to wetsuit swimmers – see conditions. Closing date 5th June.
Clevedon’s own Long Swim takes place on Saturday 11th July from Ladye Bay to the Pier. In its’ 87th year this is a very popular local event.
Details of the Four Seasons 13 June, including the team sheet, and our final Open Meet of the season, Taunton Deane Level 3 on 11/12th July are now on our Competitions page. Check it out!
Also we have to announce that we unfortunately we have taken the decision to cancel the Schools gala and the Fun 25s night. There is no definite date for the tiles at Strode being repaired at the moment and so we felt that these two events would be difficult to manage. We are still able to hold the Development Meet as this is not so crowded and much more manageable. This is NOT the end of Schools gala – it will be held again next year. Could parents let the schools know please.
Stuart Phipps, proud team manager for the Cotswold League, has published his report for the Final. Check it out on our Results page.

A record number of Clevedon ASC swimmers qualified this year for the ASA South West Age Group Championships and 10 out of the 12 were in action this weekend. This first weekend of the Championships were held at Hengrove and the final weekend takes place at the end of May at Millfield.
Our 10 qualifiers this weekend were Sophie Chambers, Kirsty Cornish, India Gibson, Ella Jenkins, Poppy Leaman, Abigail Phipps, Tabitha Pollard, Ben Penhale, Mason Smith and Nathan Turner. Many competing at this level for the first time, they all took it in their stride and had some great swims, with all producing personal best times – can’t ask for more!!
A full report and results will follow after the conclusion of the Championships, but the highlights this weekend were appearances in Finals for Ben Penhale and Abigail Phipps. Ben, competing in the 12 yr age group, was the first to bag a final spot on the first day in the 200m Butterfly, and following a tough battle and a personal best time, was to be crowned Champion. Abi Phipps was also successful in her 100m Butterfly heat on her Regional debut, swimming to a finals place which saw her move up a place after a confident and strong swim.
Well done to all! Fantastic achievement guys – we’re proud of you!
We are proud to announce that George Symonds, senior captain, has been awarded 3rd place in the Somerset ASA Young Volunteer Award for 2014. George and dad, Mark, attended the Somerset AGM at RNAS Yeovilton yesterday morning to pick up his well-deserved award from outgoing President Mike Coles. George was nominated by coaches and parents for the award, citing his professionalism, maturity and commitment amongst a long list of qualities.
It turned out to be a great day for George, as he then travelled home to compete in the Cotswold that evening, swam to a personal best time and picked up, on behalf of the swimmers, the plaque for 2nd place.
Congratulations and thanks, George!
