Grace's Success at Water Polo
Posted by Sally on 19 July
As a club South Axholme Sharks would like to send our congratulations to club member Grace Kaye.
Read More
Grace began swimming with Sharks many years ago, competing on a regular basis, this led to her taking an interest in the sport of water polo. Soon after Grace joined City of Sheffield Water Polo club and has gone on to be very successful.
Grace's recent achievements include selection for the English schools team following ESSA trials along with her Sheffield team mate Maddie, this will see them compete in Hungary in October.
This year Grace also captained the 2003 National Age Group to become the best team in the country and take Gold, along with the lovely trophy in the photograph.
On top of all this we still see Grace training with Great Whites.

This success shows how swimming can take you in another direction.

Well done Grace !!!!!!

Interested in competing in Other Galas and don't know how to enter, or if your ready?

To enter Open Meets swimmers must be 9 years old on the day of the Meet, unless the Gala is age at the end of the year, in which case swimmers may compete at 8.
Swimmers must be Cat 2 ASA, but Cat 1 swimmers can upgrade any time before the Gala.
Enter to the Gala is through the Open Meet Secretary - Gala details and entry forms can be found adjacent to the notice board.


Inspired by the evening, Sharks do have a Masters section :

This friendly group is for all types of swimmers, from those who just want to keep fit to those who still want to compete in the pool, to the open water swimmers and the triathletes who train to keep their fitness at levels at their peak.
For further information contact Head Coach Stuart Livingstone.

Or are you interested in volunteering to help at Club Events?

Sharks are always looking for volunteers, without the Timekeepers, Judges and Referees this type of event could not happen.
A Timekeepers course comprises of two parts. An Introductory Talk (September - Date TBC) which should last about one and a half hours, then a Practical to be completed at a Gala ( usually our own Halloween Meet).
The ASA gives a guideline for minimum age s of 14 years for timekeeping.

Please speak to any member of the committee/ coaching staff for further information regarding any aspect of the club they are always happy to help.



Sharks Place Fourth At The 13yrs and Under Friendly Gala
Posted by lisa on 03 May
Well done to all our swimmers who took part in the Team Friendly for the 13yrs and under age groups.

The usual team dedication was apparent from the off, something Sharks swimmers pride themselves on. The support from family and friends was also at the usual level (loud).

Each swimmer gave their all and put in some really good swims, many experiencing a team gala for the first time.

Thank you to the Senior members who attended the gala and supported swimmers at the lane ends.
