Can we do it again?
Posted by lisa on 03 June
South Axholme Sharks own Halloween Meet is due to take place on Sunday the 25th October 2020. As we are in uncertain times the Committee have decided that we are planning for the event to go ahead, up until we hear any different from Swim England or Beverly Leisure Complex.
All Club Members have been emailed a entry form if you could return it via email asap, as entries open to all clubs on the 13th June 2020.
Last year South Axholme Sharks had the biggest number of swimmers for many years and along with the mountain of medals, improvements in swimmers times, we were also Top Club at the meet. Something that we are very proud of, but we would like to do it again.
Who can take part?
Any swimmer from the club, age 9yrs or above on the day of the meet, you choose the events that you enter, the entry form tells you which session you would be in and further information can be found on the website.
Click on the Halloween Meet logo, or the tab on the left-hand side, both take you to a dedicated page which has all the information you need.
If you have any questions about the gala, or need advice on what to enter from the coaches please contact the club - email@example.com
and someone will answer your questions asap.
Thank you for your continued support.
Return To Swimming
Posted by lisa on 01 June
A little bit of news from the club regarding the return to swimming.
We are strictly governed by both Swim England and Epworth Pool on when we can potentially return to swimming, and all I can tell you at the moment is that we don’t have a date as yet, however we are working hard behind the scenes to make sure we come up with a way of getting going as soon as we get the green light.
Also for anyone who is really missing their swimming, I know I am, open water may be returning this week in a very socially distanced fashion and if anyone would like to give it a try then please drop me an email, so that I can get an indication of interest.

We have had no information regarding returning to training from Swim England and Epworth pool has no update about re-opening.
Once the pool does re-open, we as a club will have to work with the pool, to ensure all safety precautions are taken and no-one is put at any risk.
South Axholme Sharks are cancelling Club Champs 2 to be held in June.
Regarding forthcoming gala's, Swim England have put a hold on all Licenses for the present time so no gala's can take place, once training resumes, as a club, we will look into when competing is advisable along with the hold on licences being lifted.
Up coming galas for Sharks swimmers:
Dartes B Grade - no update
Jorvik Viking Sprints - no update
New Earswick - no entry file provided to put entries in
Borough of Barnsley - no update
Thank you for your co-operation and we will keep you informed.

Locked Down Sharks take on the 'Toilet Roll Challenge' . . .
Posted by Cris on 17 April
Annie Wilson has been encouraging Sharks swimmers to share some fun during lockdown. Read more to see how they all got on.
It's well worth a look!
I hope you are all staying safe during lockdown.
I've been thinking of something we could do to show that we are busy during lockdown and, after seeing the Toilet Roll Challenge on facebook and other social media sites, I thought it was perfect.
I contacted all the older swimmers I could and asked them to join in and the video below is the result.
I hope we are back at swimming soon, stay safe!!!
