Junior Cup – Cancelled

Please note that we have had to withdraw from the Junior Cup which is due to be held at Fareham tomorrow evening.

The main problem is a lack of response from some swimmers and lack availability of other swimmers.

I am really sorry for the swimmers who are available and keen to swim and we will look for other team galas in the near future.

Hi Guys,

Great news!! You will now be able to order your CCSC kit from: http://www.swimzi.com/club-shop/chichester-cormorants-swimming-club.html

You only have 2 weeks to order your kit before the shop closes on Saturday 8th October. This will also be your last chance to order kit before Christmas!

Orders placed after this time may delay the whole kit order and therefore will not be accepted. So to avoid disappointment, please place your order now.

Delivery is expected 6-8 weeks time after the shop has closed.

Checkout options:
Please choose CLUB SHOP ONLY: Your kit will be individually packed and delivered to the club.

7 Working Days: We are unable to remove this from the website due to our retail range. Please choose the club shop option as you will not receive your kit any sooner by choosing this option.

If you require name personalisation on your kit, please add the
Sweat Personalisation or Shirt Personalisation product to your basket and then contact: sam@swimzi.com  – with the name required.

We strongly recommend that you try on the samples to check sizing available at the Swim Desk  again on Friday 30th September  and Friday 7th October before ordering as items are made to order and cannot be returned if they do not fit.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with Swimzi direct or Rebecca Hadnett.

Many thanks .

Poolside helpers

If any parents in dev 1 or 2 would like to help poolside on a Monday 6-7 please can you contact me so I arrange a Rota.

You do not have to know how to swim yourselves, it is just following the lesson plan.

If we can get a good team of poolside helpers, we can then free up our coaches who can then help our swimmers perfect their stroke.

If I can do it – anyone can! 

If I can answer any questions please let me know.

Cross-Solent Cormorants


Next weekend, two Cormorants Masters will be making the long crossing of the Solent from Southsea to Ryde.

Lisa Maynard is one of the club’s most dedicated volunteer coaches, and Kim Prichard is a key member of the Masters open-water group. Both swimmers are collecting sponsorship for the Aspire spinal-injuries charity.

This is a really challenging swim, very different from typical short, low-tide Solent crossings to West Wight. Lisa and Kim will be swimming over some deep, dark water, and in the middle of the Solent they’ll be a long way from the safety of landfall. At this time of year conditions can be especially tough, so we wish them the best of luck with the wind and swell.

If you’d like to make a donation to either swimmer’s sponsorship, you can find them by name on the Just Giving website or via these links:
