We are seeking sponsorship to benefit our swimmers, the club and to promote swimming to the wider community, whilst gaining the support of local businesses..
Altrincham SC is based at Altrincham Leisure Centre. Altrincham is on the fringe of the Manchester conurbation and has easy access to the countryside. Within its immediate vicinity are well know locations such as Hale, Hale Barns, Bowdon, Timperley and Dunham. We are a competitive club and participate in the local leagues and our swimmers enter the Open Events in the Local Associations, Cheshire County, and the North West Region. We are a development club and an integral part of Trafford Leisure Trust swimming pathway that aims to support swimming at all levels from learning to swim to elite club competitors. The club administration is run by volunteers and we are proud to have attained the Swim 21 ASA mark.
On Saturday 25th July a group of Altrincham swimmers travelled to Sale Water Park for an Introduction to Open Water Swimming. The group consisted of a mix of age groups and squads, and the swimmers threw themselves into the activities with gusto!
Kate Offord coached the group, starting with a gentle acclimatisation to the water with some breathing and floating exercises. Once the swimmers had got used to it, we did some sighting and drafting skills followed by a 'race' around the buoys for those who wanted to. Some of them enjoyed it so much that they did the race twice!
Thanks to Open Swim UK for letting us come down, and a huge well done to the following swimmers:
Alice Clegg, Lucy Robinson, Eve Smith, Jade Ong, Hannah Julyan (who deserves a special mention for swimming without a wetsuit!), Beth Robinson, Hannon Maher, Sophie Benn, Nicky Smith and Jonathan Robinson
