We are hoping to arrange a training program for our Junior Development 2 and Senior swimmers in September with SwimSwift Elite.  Olympic Swimmers Joe Roebuck and Amy Smith have teamed up to present Swimming Master classes and Swim Camps.

They are happy to work with a maximum of 50 swimmers over a number of sessions. The cost per swimmer will be approximately £60, depending on how many people sign up and how many sessions we need to run. An expression of interest sheet will go on the club noticeboard next week.

Please take a look at their website: https://swimswiftelite.co.uk/

Details of their proposal for Bilston Swimming Club can be found here.
Massive congratulations to Molly who has been chosen to represent the West Mercia Scouts at the World Jamboree next summer in West Virginia, USA.

It is an amazing opportunity and in order to take part Molly has the mammoth task of raising £3500!  Part of the money raised will enable less fortunate children from third world countries to also attend the Jamboree.

Molly will be climbing Snowdon as part of her fundraising activities and has a sponsorship form on the club noticeboard.

Lets help Molly achieve her target!!
