Click here to view results from session 1 of this year’s club championships.
Overall – there were 5 new club records, 66 new PBs and 21 new times.
There were also 6 county qualifying times. We did announce a number of qualifying times which were not actually qualifying times. This was due to an error in the recording system which has now been corrected. Apologies to those swimmers who thought they had qualified for next year’s county championships.

Good luck to all swimmers who are competing in session 2 tomorrow morning.
This is a gentle reminder that swimmers are expected to attend and complete training sessions as outlined in the squad training programme, which includes 2-hour sessions on Monday and Wednesday for Age Group 2.
If a swimmer is not able to complete the full session, they must advise the head coach by email or verbally before the session begins.
Swimmers will not be allowed to leave a training session without prior consent.
Rudeness and disrespect to coaching staff will not be tolerated.
Please see individual performance report from last week’s Sussex ASA Winter County Competition.

The last training workshop will take place this Friday starting at 7;00pm. We will meet in the cafe for a prompt start in the meeting room.
Chichester Cormorants kicked off the 2017 National Arena League with an outstanding performance at the new Hart Leisure Centre in Fleet, Hampshire. This was without doubt the strongest team on paper that Cormorants have fielded in the past five years, but it was also one of the toughest galas with opposition from Hart, Worthing, Farnham, Haslemere, Wycombe District and Wey Valley.
Overall, out of 102 swims, which includes individual swims in relays, there was a staggering 54 new personal bests, 27 qualifying times for the long course county championships and an impressive 56 qualifying times for the short course county championships.
Furthermore, there were three wins, two for the 15/u girls comprising Laura Docherty, Olivia Davies, Mia Clive and Jessica Rayner, in both the 4 x 50m freestyle and medley relays. Lucca Everley also won his 10/11 boys 50m backstroke as well a third place in the 50m freestyle. There were two other second place finishes for Laura Docherty in the girls 15/u 100m backstroke and Adam Long in the mens’ open 100m butterfly.
Overall, Chichester finished 5th out of seven teams with 178 points, just 11 points behind Haslemere.
Well done to the whole team. The next round will be swam at the same venue, Hart Leisure Centre, on Saturday 11th November.
