Dear Members 

If you have any questions on the Beds ASA County Championships, please reply to SCM or ask your coach. 

Kind regards,

Sandra,

Club Secretary

From 1st September, A squad has been rebranded as A1 squad and Sprint as A2. There are no other changes for those squads.
We have also created an A3 squad. Swimmers in A3 will have fewer sessions available but will continue to train with A1 and A2 when they do swim.

This change is being made to enable us to make good use of the pool time available as the club expands
