New - Foundation and Club Junior Swimmer of the Month

I am delighted to announce that, as from the end of October 2018, the Coaching Team will be introducing two swimmer of the month awards. The winners of the awards will be selected from our Foundation and Club Junior squads based on their individual achievements, successes and/or contributions to club life.

The winners will get to keep the trophy for a whole month before returning it in time for the following months presentation.

To see the grand unveiling of the new Trophies and to keep abreast of the winners please give our revamped Facebook page a follow;

Good luck to all Foundation and Club Junior squad members, remember to train hard, be positive and most of all enjoy your swimming!!

See you at the pool,

Phil James
Vikings Head Coach

Training Equipment in the Swimmers Guides documents

There is a minimum set of training equipment swimmers should bring to every session, The basic kit should include:

Swimwear – chlorine resistant fabric is best for training because of the amount of time spent in the water. Lycra just does not last. Wet costumes should be kept separate from towels, then rinsed thoroughly in clean water and left to dry naturally.

Goggles – choice will be driven by swimmer preference, but always have a couple of spares for when they go walkabout or the straps snap.

Swimming Cap – All swimmers with hair that comes down below the ears should wear a swimming cap for training. Always have a couple of spares as they stretch and can snap. Silicone caps are much longer lasting than latex.


Water/Juice bottles – NEVER be without one or more. Water or squash is MUCH better at sustaining your energy levels over a training session than the ‘powerade’ or ’lucozade’ bottles you can buy.

Net Bag – useful for holding all the gear you will need on poolside.

Kickboard – the larger versions

Pull buoy – for younger swimmers a junior size is best, then progress to the larger size.

Training Fins – SHORT rubber or silicone fins, not the longer type used for snorkelling or scuba.

Hand Paddles – larger ones are best as you can feel more of the stroke with these and they are better for developing technique.

Drag Shorts – for increasing resistance in the water and increasing ‘feel good’ factor when removed.
