As usual there will be shorter races as well. So, if the 400M Medley sounds daunting there will be an option to do a 200M Medley or a 4 x 30M or 4 x 20M Medley instead.
Great performances last week
There were some great performances last week, including from Brody Manners. Brody stepped up from 20M Freestyle to do his first 30M Freestyle event. Brody completed his 30M Freestyle time trial in style. Well done Brody!
Join the DSC Laps for Life fundraising effort again this year
Last summer the Drummoyne Swimming community got right behind Laps for Life. We raised an extraordinary amount of money for a relatively small social swimming club.
We’re going around again this summer. So, please dig deep and help if you can.
Why are we supporting Laps for Life? Because suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in Australia? That means that each year, more young people die by suicide than in car accidents or from cancer.
Every dollar you donate to our fundraising page will help ReachOut provide all young people in Australia with the support they need to be happy and well.
To join up simply go to the Laps for Life website and connect to our team –
The Battle on the Bay is a fun and competitive swimming carnival between local swimming clubs in the bay area. It’s also a good opportunity for the Club to raise finds to pay for things like upgrades to our timing equipment.
If you know of any local businesses that might be able to donate goods or services for us to raffle off could out please reach out to them and ask the question.
Battle on the Bay provides exposure to over 400 swimmers and their families so it’s a good chance for local businesses to make themselves known to people in the broader area.
Please contact Adrian on 0424 561 831 if you want more information about this.
Things looked a little dicey last Saturday after lightning struck close by the pool at 6:45. But, it was all plain sailing from there and it turned out to be a nice, but understandably quiet, morning. This Saturday the weather is looking fine. So, if you indulged too much over the festive season, head down to the pool to race off some of that Christmas cheer…
This week we have:
Molly Wark & Les Henry U/10 100m Freestyle – Week 3
After three and a half years coaching our Junior Squads with Lynette and Phil, Maddie Tilyard is leaving us.
Thanks very much Maddie for all your efforts to help our squids improve. You have been a great support to the Club and will be sorely missed.
Maddie is commencing her professional career as a nurse at Royal North Shore Private. I’m sure she’ll be kept busy!
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Lauren Lyon to the coaching ranks. Lauren was a swim club regular as a kid. She went on to take up rowing competitively and has been coaching with Carlile Swimming Centres for the last few years. Lauren is a ready made replacement for Maddie. Please make her feel welcome.
Reminder about Junior Squads
Junior squads run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 in Lanes 1 and 2 under the watchful eye of Lynette Brown and Phil Hayward. Lynette and Phil are professionally supported by Cara Parker and now Lauren Lyon.
Junior squads are free to members and open to all. Parents are very welcome to come along and participate too.
Interested in coaching?
We are always looking to train up and coming coaches. So, if any older juniors are interested please reach out to Phil Hayward to learn more about coach training and coaching opportunities.
