As the weather warms up between April and September, some of our more adventurous swimmers take to the outdoors. Over the past few years SAS have swam with Swim Your Swim at Hatfield Water Park.

Sharks have a number of wet suits to loan free, if you are interested in giving it a go.

If you are interested in taking part in open water swimming, please speak to the Head Coach, to check wet suit availability and who will be at the venue from our club on the day. Saturday mornings from 8-10am, Tuesday evening from 6-8pm (3pm-8pm from May), Thursday evening from 6-8pm. Cost is £5 per swim, which is paid to Swim Your Swim who provide safety cover.

Weston Park Receive Cheque At Presentation Evening
Posted by lisa on 01 February
A few words from Zoe and Emily Exton:

Emotional evening at the swimming club presentation night yesterday. Jonathan Exton Sportsmanship Awards presented in his memory to reflect the attributes he encouraged in the swimmers as their ex-chairman, and an incredible £5000+ big cheque handover to Weston Park Cancer Charity in his memory from 7 months of fundraising at the club. A massive effort by each and every member in baking, raising sponsors, donating prizes, selling and buying raffle tickets galore and collectively swimming the distance of 10 times across the English Channel in a Swimathon. Each and every member of the club has come together to make a real difference to cancer patients locally. Just fantastic. Very proud that Jonathan has inspired the club he thought so very much of, to prove South Axholme Sharks really is Small Club Big Heart. To those I've tagged please spread the word and pass on a huge thank you from the Exton family and https://www.facebook.com/WestonParkCancerCharity/ πŸ’œ
