National Arena League Sussess!

Fantastic, outstanding, out-of-this-world, there are no superlatives grand enough to describe the performance of Chichester Cormorants’ swimmers in the third and final round of this year’s National Arena League.

Going into the gala Chichester were ranked 8th and no matter what happened in the lower gala this would be the lowest place that we could finish when the final league positions were known.  However, our swimmers didn’t want to settle for eight and produced what what must be the best performance in living memory to finish 5th on the night with 207 points, 40 points ahead of Windsor and 48 points ahead of Worthing.

With league points counting double in the third round Chichester managed to overturn a 4 point deficit with Worthing and both teams finished the league with 17 points.  It therefore came down to gala points and Chichester’s performance on the night secured 5th place overall with 669 points compared to Worthings 657.

Watch this space for a full match report and well done to the whole squad who competed in this year’s league!

CCSC Champhionships, gala volunteers always welcome

Hopefully you really enjoyed this years CCSC championships.  A great introduction to racing for some, a great, well run gala for others and certainly something that will be talked about pool side for some months to come!

Ever wondered how an event like this runs and who all the people are who seem to know what to do and where to go?  How can you run 40-something races in just a couple of hours, keep track of all the results and then get it all online so times and results can be checked and mulled over so soon?

Good news, there is no big secret and CCSC would like to thank the ~36 volunteers who helped out over the two evenings, a fantastic commitment, which made the whole event run smoothly.

First off, you need a brave and very organised Gala Sectretary, well done again Helen! Then, you need good referee’s; thanks again to Ray Barber and Mark Webb.  Judges monitor the swimmers once the starter has set them off and a big team of timers, runners, recorders, announcers, refreshments, people on the door, raffle prize draw organisers, pool side helpers, coaches and CCSC committee members, not committed already elsewhere, to keep it all running.  In no particular order by the way, everyone has a part to play.

So, will we see you next year helping out?  There are loads of different tasks we need volunteers to help with so don’t worry if its the first time you have helped out.  We also need helpers when we host galas too.

CCSC can run training courses and will be very happy to provide information and introductions if you’d like to get involved with ASA courses too.  Come and see us on the desk on Friday’s if you’d like to know more.

Club Championships 2014 Results

Please click on links to view and download updated results from Session 1 (Friday) and results from Session 2 (Saturday).

You can email if you have any queries regarding the results.

Overall, out of 405 swims, there were 258 Personal Bests (64%) and 19 potential county qualifying times.  I say potential because it is not clear at the moment whether these short-course (i.e. 25m pool) times need to be converted to long-course (i.e. 50m pool) times.

Emails with personal performance details to follow shortly.

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s club champs a success particularly Ray Barber and Mark Webb (Bognor Regis SC) who refereed both sessions and huge thank you to Helen Bond who organised the event.
