Summer Fun Night
Posted by lisa on 24 July
Great fun was had at this year's summer fun night.
With pink flamingos and water melon inflatables as only some of the props used, and lots of noise around poolside gave for an enjoyable evening for all who participated.

With the winning team THE SUN HATS: Hannah, Eva, Zara, Molly, Nathan and Isaac, coming out on top for this fun night.

Thank you to everyone who helped to put the evening on.

Normally a small gifts are received by all those swimmers who take part in fun night, but this time fun night swimmer were the first to receive their personalised Jubilee towel.

Posted by lisa on 23 July
After competing at the recent Team Jorvik Viking Sprints Sam Forster is the next swimmer to hit the target for a gala point reward.

Sharks Queen's Jubilee Towels
Posted by lisa on 21 July
As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations South Axholme Sharks has purchased personalised towels for all its members, the first of which were handed out at summer fun night.
These towels are very limited editions (only 100 have been produced), and will be distributed during training sessions over the next few weeks, and the best bit is they are a gift.
Unfortunately if members joined the club after the print deadline and before fun night, then the towel will not be personalised.

Once we have distributed the towels there may be a few spares for future Sharks to purchase should they wish.
May Sprint Gala 1 and 2
Posted by lisa on 05 July
The popular May Sprints galas were back on the Calendar, these are set over two weekends, due to the amount of events and the fast turn round of these events.
The Galas were set up back in 2015, when it was identified that there was a gap in events that Sharks entered. Also there were a set of club records that were no longer swam nor new records set. These records could only be achieved in a 20m pool, so the ideal solution was to hold the gala at our own pool. The gala would also be a way of introducing new Sharks swimmers to competition swimming in a relaxed environment.
It gives swimmers from all squads the opportunity to come together, support each other, as well as forming friendly rivalries.
All swimmers that compete at this gala receives a medal, as recognition of all their hard work.
