Following the success in Rio 2016, the FSC Committee looked at how the Club worked with para swimmers and realised that there was no pre-planned pathway for para swimmers to approach the Club and become involved in competitive swimming. So we thought we would do something about this.
Para swimming is regular swimming adapted for athletes with disabilities, swimmers are classified according to the nature and extent of their disability, which enables swimmers with similar levels of function to compete against each other.
Just to welcome everybody to the New Year - hope it is a happy one for us all ...
We have started training this week so all those that have had a nice long break cutesy of Formby Pool are now back in training AND HOW ....
The next Gala is the second round of the Merseyside and District Junior League so get ready for a few good sessions to get back into the groove.
Formby Swimming Club would like to wholeheartedly thank Alice for all her time and effort over the last 4 years. She has been a constant part of the club and helped a lot of the current young coaches along the way. Her coaching has been of the highest standard and we wish her all the best as she embarks on her nursing career.
