All swimmers without qualifying times must be 9 by 30th November and be at least 10 by 31st December 2015. Entries without qualifying times will be accepted on a first come first served basis. If the meet becomes over subscribed, entries without qualifying times will be rejected first.

20 OCT - WINSFORD TOP CLUB AT CONWY MEET
Congratulations to all swimmers who raced in Llandudno at the Swim Conwy L2 Meet. Due to every swimmers efforts over the weekend we gained Top Club out of a total of 27 clubs who attended. This is the first time we gained this accolade and just shows how far we have come as a club. Winsford as always raced with great determination, guts and the desire to swim as fast as possible. Winsford SC have had a superb start to the season and the results keep coming. For this meet our team achieved an overall PB rate of 78.44% which is an incredible achievement, even more so as it has only been 3 weeks since the last SC meet (Club Champs). The amount of medals and top 6 placings was also fantastic but what pleased me most was the fight every swimmer had in their hearts, at this swimming club we all have massive hearts and it showed in the races. So many highlights over the weekend but for me it was so enjoyable watching our 800 & 1500 metre swimmers, some superb swims all round and so pleasing to see lots of swimmers enjoying the distance events. The other highlight for me was seeing the younger lads all battling it out in the pool, competition in those age groups is very fierce and without a doubt it is bringing out faster and faster times for them. The whole weekend was superb, such fast swimming makes coaches happy. Thank you to all who supported this meet, thanks to the parents and the swimmers and to those who brought me breakfast on Sunday morning, always great to be fed! 

A team is a group of individuals that support each other. It is us against the world. Dan.

12 OCT - ARENA ROUND 1 SUCCESS
Congratulations to all swimmers who raced in Macclesfield for Round 1 of the North West Arena League Premier Division. Competing against some of the top clubs in the region Winsford swimmers performed outstanding, achieving a top 4 finish. It was so pleasing to see our swimmers battling it out against the bigger clubs and going toe to toe. The team spirit, the fight, the hunger and desire to perform for our club was unbelievable. Standing at the end of the lane and watching our swimmers race was a joy and as a coach I was so very proud of every single swimmer. Every swimmer competing made a huge contribution to our overall success on the night and for that I am very grateful to everyone. Without you all we would not have swum so fast and achieved so much. Thank you to the marshalls for getting the swimmers behind the block on time, thank you to the parents who cheered on our swimmers, thank you to Daniel for helping out pool side and most of all thank you to all our swimmers you were all fantastic, racing hard and achieving great placings and great PB's. Remember this club is nothing without you the swimmers. You are the reason why we are all here!
