Sharks Donate to Charity
Posted by Sally on 15 December
Following the receipt of a letter from Girls captain Annie Wilson the club has donated to the Hellewell Christmas lights in Belton. Dan Hellewell went to school with Annie and has done a fantastic job of his display in memory of a friend and our ex Chairman Jonathan Exton, with money raised going to two charities Humber Active and Weston Park. Weston Park supported Jonathan, Zoe, Emily and their family, and is a charity close to several members hearts.

This year the Hellewell Christmas lights are dedicated to our friends Jonathan Exton who sadly lost his battle against cancer in 2018 and Adam Simms who tragically died in a road traffic accident earlier this year.

In memory of Jonathon we are raising money for Weston Park Cancer Charity who provided amazing support to Jonathan, Zoe and Emily.

In memory of Adam, we are raising money for Humber Active who support young people to get involved in sport. Adam was a fantastic sportsman and dedicated a lot of his time to provide sport coaching for children.

All money raised will be shared between the two charities.

Christmas Swimming
Posted by Sally on 15 December
The last Sharks session of 2021 Swimming will be Thursday, 16th December, Friday 17thfor Masters, this decision has been made with the pool and gives everyone time to keep safe before Christmas.
Training will re-commence on Wednesday 5th January following the return to school, we are aware South Axholme school are conducting Lateral Flow tests that morning, we would ask if your child/swimmer can could you please ensure a negative lateral flow before swimming, just to be on the safe side.

Swim England fees are now due for 2022, please ensure these are paid to the pool and referenced with swimmer's name.

Lastly we would like to thank you all for your support and understanding in these unprecedented circumstances and lets hope we can return to normality in 2022.
We wish everyone a very safe Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

The count down to The Halloween Meet is on….

Thank you to all swimmers who have entered the Halloween Meet 2021, and thank you to all the parents/carers who have volunteered to help out on the day.

The Halloween Meet is the biggest fundraiser for South Axholme Sharks during the year, and without help and support an event of this size could not go ahead.

It’s not too late for those still wanting to enter, but time is running out.

If you require further information please email:

Thank you to everyone who responded to the email regarding training. Training will recommence week beginning the 12th April 2021. Please check your emails for session allocation.

Thank you for your patience and continued support over the last year.
Preparation for returning to swimming has started
Posted by lisa on 15 March
With the possibility of indoor pools opening on the 12th April, we are starting to prepare so that we are ready once we get the go ahead.

Although there will be many restrictions, and under the guidance of the Government, Swim England and Epworth Pool, we aim to offer as many of our swimmers a chance to return to training as possible.

Depending on the numbers returning, will depend on how many sessions we can offer. As lock down restrictions lift we will monitor the sessions and adjust, in line with the current guidelines.

All swimmers must complete up to date health surveys, and have current ASA membership, before training sessions recommence. Fees will need to be paid monthly by direct debit, direct to Epworth Pool. Further information will be sent once things are finalised.

Any one who has not received current information, should email the club.
Swim England Thank You
Posted by Sally on 01 March
Dear South Axholme Sharks Sc


Thank you for renewing your club’s members for their Swim England membership for 2021 and remaining a part of the Swim England family.

We know 2020 was a tough year for clubs across the country, which is why we’re so grateful to you for continuing to support our fabulous sports. 

By renewing your club’s members, you are playing a big part in safeguarding the long term future of our sports.

We have really come together as one aquatics community over the past 12 months. We will continue to embody this spirit in our lobbying and campaigning to get your members, and all our clubs, back in the water as soon as it is safe to do so and for a return to the competitive action we crave.

Thank you again, here’s to a better 2021!

Best wishes

Jane Nickerson

The Government confirms roadmap for swimming pools reopening
Posted by lisa on 24 February
We can imagine many of you were frustrated by yesterday's Government announcement with over 18s facing a further wait before being allowed to train with their clubs. As such, we wanted to get in touch to let you know what we're doing on your behalf, and what it specifically means to you.

As Swim England Chief Executive Jane Nickerson said yesterday, "we shall be urging the Government to reconsider this restriction and allow adult organised activity to take place in the second wave when indoor pools reopen.”
We also wanted to let you know that Swim England’s Leadership Groups for each aquatic sport will now be looking closely at the pathway for returning to competition. We will release further details in due course.

Step 1 - From 8 March
School swimming as part of the national curriculum can resume.

From 29 March
Outdoor swimming pools and lidos plus open water venues will be allowed to open for both children and adults. Whilst clubs are allowed to return at this point in these outdoor pools and venues, we realise that only a handful will be able to access these pools.

Step 2 - From 12 April (At least five weeks after Step 1, no earlier than 12 April)

Indoor pools can reopen for individual use or within household groups as well. This will allow you to return to the water but not as part of your club.

Our sports can return in club sessions for under 18s at this step.

Step 3 - From 17 May (At least five weeks after Step 2, no earlier than 17 May)

Organised indoor adult sport will be allowed, meaning club activity for all over 18s, including group sessions, can recommence.
Returning to Training
Posted by Sally on 23 February
Following Boris's press conference yesterday things are looking up. The pool is planning on opening on the 12th April 2021. As a club we are waiting on guidance from Swim England with regards training. Emails will be sent out once things have been sorted to all those who have renewed their Swim England membership.
Our lobbying commitment to you over the next few weeks
Posted by lisa on 09 February
Over the coming weeks, there will be a lot of attention within the media, and no doubt your family and friendship groups, about how the country will begin to ease the national lockdown.

As a community, we accepted the need for pools to close at the start of January to play their part in the national lockdown, but they now need to be at the heart of the nation’s recovery.

As a Swim England member, volunteer, parent, coach, official and so many more roles that exist amongst our fabulous club community, we wanted to make it clear what Swim England's commitment is to you and what we are asking for on your behalf from the Government. With your continued membership in 2021, you are helping us to keep fighting for our pools and sports.

Our asks to the Government:
Reopen all pools across England as part of the first stages of easing the national lockdown

Swim England regulated activity is allowed to recommence across all age groups and in all tiers should this approach be adopted by the Government

Pools should be classed as ‘essential services’ due to the unique physical and mental benefits that being active in the water can bring.

Whether it's through the Swim England team's conversations with the Cabinet Office or the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, via current and former athletes supporting us on social media, or if I'm the face of our community on the TV or in the papers, we will be consistent in why we believe pools are safe and controlled environments.

Pools are also a place where millions of people who can’t exercise on land are able to be active. Continued closure of pools locks these people out from their only place to exercise.

My promise to you all is that the Swim England team won’t stop campaigning and lobbying until swimming pools are fully open and you can return to the water again.

Jane Nickerson

Swim England Chief Executive
