Today was the last grades test of the year and everyone was asked to come poolside.
Maria Ramos, Chair of the National Synchro Body, made a lovely speech about the recipient of the Mary Black Award and we soon cottoned onto who it was when Maria said this lady was a coach, judge and sewed beautiful costumes with sequins and had a daughter who also went on to become a coach - it was awarded to our very own Margaret Woolley; so well deserved Margaret and a heartfelt thank you from all of us for EVERYTHING you have done and continue to do for Rushmoor! :)
(Mary Black award is awarded to someone who is a member of an ASA club and has given outstanding service to English synchronised swimming.)
Rushmoor Dolphins, Seals, Sharks and Sea Lions teams competed in Crawley today, with all teams medalling. Well done girls. 🏆

In 2016, the South East Region supported a squad of 12 junior athletes (Risa Darcy, Abi Garner and Alex Thickett were selected from Rushmoor) with 2 training days in Reading and the squad went off for 6 days to a warm weather training camp in Torremolinos, Spain during the May half term.
In 2017, the S.E. Regional Squad has been selected from the 2016 National Age Groups Figures and will contain between 8-12 swimmers from the 13/15 and 15/18 age groups; born in 2002, 2003, 2004) including any athlete(s) selected for England phase 2 trials who are unsuccessful at gaining a place onto the squads and will have 5 single training days in Reading and will go back to the warm weather training camp in Torremolinos, Spain for 6 days during the May half term.
4 RUSHMOOR swimmers have been selected for the squad: Risa Darcy, Katharine Jackson, Phoebe Jones and Zayna Gallacher - congrats girls!

There are only 4 BEACON synchronised swimming Clubs in England: Bristol, Leeds, Reading and Rushmoor (4th year as a Beacon Club). (This is the final year of Beacon funding.) Through this programme, swimmers will have access to extended training sessions delivering a syllabus in line with the England Talent Development Squad, including the same testing, protocols and technical work, under the direction of the Regional Beacon Coach. The programme will also involve an education programme including land training and athlete support services.
As part of Beacon, the Club has to run a regional programme once a month from January through to June and then compete in the Beacon Games in July - our region is Surrey, Hampshire and London. The focus of the regional programme will be to select 10 - 15 athletes per Beacon, that either didn’t quite make it onto an England Squad trial or the next best athletes born in 2003, 2004 and 2005. The country has been split into 4 sections and the clubs/athletes divided up appropriately.
We have 5 RUSHMOOR SWIMMERS on this programme: Abi Garner, Louise Love, India Rankin, Olivia Robinson and Eloise Viney.
The squad - U12s:
Regional Beacon Coach: Louise Ross - Rushmoor; Coaches: Rhiannon Williams - Portsmouth Victoria and Leonie Kearn - Rushmoor.

This was a tough weekend to navigate with so many moving parts! and having our recreational teams split over Saturday/Sunday with the competitive teams. A huge thank you goes out to our team of volunteers who were brilliant and without them giving up their time we wouldn't have run as smoothly:
Margaret Woolley - judging and Mitch - Head TM for 3 LONG days of and being poolside from early morning to the last person left standing after the days’ event; Alison Thickett - assisting TM, who discovered how much behind the scenes work/planning there is that parents/swimmers don't realise there is to do especially in anticipating any plan b's etc; Deborah Jackson, Tina Wilshaw, Jane Randall for assisting and having them helping was so important with the number of swimmers we were shifting around; Sonia Dembinska for being our Club volunteer at the event and Barbara Campbell for being taxi when Margaret and Mitch needed transport. Coaches - a big “thanks” for your hard work throughout the year! and getting your teams to performance level for this competition.
