Swim League Round One Darwen Sun 16.01.2022

The results of Round One are as follows

Division 1

Round 1 Gala 2 Darwen 16.01.2022 (Div 1) Edit for illegal swims

Division 2

Round 1 Gala 1 Darwen 16.01.2022 (Div 2)

Please note that unfortunately one team in Division 1 was heavily penalised for two illegal swims.  The results are therefore different from those announced at the Gala.

We would strongly encourage coaches to familiarise themselves with the League Rules which can be downloaded under the events Tab.

Please also note the only acceptable Team Sheet is the one which can be found under the Events Tab.  No other format is acceptable and failure to present the correct sheet before the star of the Gala will incur a fine.

Swim League Gala 1 – Sunday 16th January 2022 – Darwen Leisure Centre

The Lane Draw for Round 1 is now under the Events Tab

Please note the order and timings of the galas.

Please note that spectators numbers at Darwen Leisure Centre are restricted to one person per family.

Please note the duties assigned to your club.

In addition your club will need to provide a time-keeper and qualified official. (If you do not have a qualified official please arrange to “buddy ” with another club and borrow one of theirs!)

The Association will provide the float & programmes for the team assigned to the door, who should be in place 15mins before the designated entry time.

If your team are down to provide water please purchase 36 x bottles of water, for which you will be reimbursed by the door team on production of a receipt.

There will be no electronic timing at Darwen, so the recorder and check recorder functions are critical to the effective operation of the gala.  A laptop will be provided with the electronic score sheet for the recorder.  The check recorder will complete a manual results sheet.

The Lane Draw for Round Two will be posted shortly.

Vacancy for Hon. Secretary

Hi all

As we move ever closer to our Annual General Meeting which will be held on Monday 6th December I am writing to ask for your help with a couple of things. 

  1. As you know our current Secretary, Bob Thompson will be stepping down from the role at the AGM to have a well deserved break after many years of loyal service to North Lancs. As yet we are still to receive nominations for a new Secretary. Can I kindly ask all delegates to ask around their respective clubs to see if we can find a volunteer to take on this role and replace Bob. Should anyone be wishing to put their names forward for this role please just ensure you provide the name of your proposer and seconder. Thank you. 
  2. We also require nominations for the role of Vice President. Again if you could please ask around your clubs for a volunteer to take up this post it would be truly appreciated. Thank you.

As outgoing President I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in NLSWPA in ensuring we continue to look after our affiliated clubs best interests, especially through this pandemic. The togetherness that has been shown this past 20 months or so has been extraordinary and it has been truly heart warming to see people try to help others through a difficult time. Thank you all, for all you have done.

I look forward welcoming you all to the AGM in December.

Kind Regards 

Steve.

No Frills Meet Week 2 Darwen

The results are now available to download under the Events Tab

A message of thanks from our President – Steve Heaps

Dear all 
 
I’d be very grateful if you Please pass thus to those who volunteered today. Thanks.
 
I just wanted to drop you all a short note as I didn’t get the opportunity earlier.
I just want to say many thanks indeed for your support and effort at todays North lancs no frills meet in Darwen. These events simply could not go ahead without all the effort and volunteering you guys perform. Without this our young swimmers simply would not be able to continue in their chosen sport. 
 
There are many good people within our district who, behind the scenes, work hard to ensure that these events can go ahead, I am grateful and thankful to them all for all they do. We just couldn’t stage these events without them. Thank you all.
 
So, to all the officials, timing suite guys, organisers, food suppliers and those great guys running around after swimmers in the marshalling area, thank you most sincerely for today, have a pint and enjoy your evening.  
 
Kind regards to you all….
 
Steve.
