Your Club Needs You!

Every year the City of Leeds Swimming Club supporters committee raise funds to help support our swimmers.  Most of the money raised is from fundraising at our Gala's through Raffles, Bookstalls and Tombola's. 

We will be fundraising at the City of Leeds National Qualifying Meet and the Summer B Grade Meet.   In order to do this we need your help by donating prizes.  Donations can be anything you feel that would be suitable as a raffle prize or a prize for the tombola. 

 Please see Lucie, Helen or John who can be found on the bookstall on a Monday evening. 

Without your help we cannot support our swimmers. 

Thank you

The Supporters Committee

ASANER Age Group Championships 2015

Hi All,

This is just a reminder to any swimmers who achieved any additional North Eastern qualifying times over the weekend at the Doncaster Meet.  

Vicki Spencer will be taking any additional entries on Monday 11th May.

Swimmers should enter ALL events they have qualified for.  This is one of the harder competitions in the Regional calendar to qualify for and anyone who has achieved a time (even if it is only in one event) should swim.  This meet is a fantastic opportunity to compete against the fastest swimmers in the North East.
