Winter League Division 2 Champions

Winter League Finals 2017_18

A tussle for pole position was apparent from the off. We took an early lead but then had to claw our way back…even after the penultimate race nothing was guaranteed. Dedication, commitment and passion were apparent from everyone; and the support from the crowd was deafening.

A fantastic achievement. Well done to all the swimmers, coaches, poolside support, and finally parents.

Really proud of the club tonight; not just the swimmers but everyone involved. Each year we’re moving forward. We lost by 1 point last year; and won by 3 point this year. Winning is a habit, and its a habit I love. – Chris Darling

Want to change your club sessions?

We now have a formal ‘change in session’ request form that will be available poolside (from either Tess or Catherine); or with the kit order forms – to the right of our club noticeboard.

Any club member that wants to change any of their sessions; and/or increase the number of sessions, will need to complete the form.

We will confirm the possibility of amending the sessions (dependent on lane availability) and get back to you as quickly as possible. Your help in making this process work smoothly is much appreciated.

Final of Moonraker Summer League 2017

Winners trophy and certificateBy Catherine Watkinson

A squad of 42 young, and experienced swimmers, plus a supporting team of coaches, poolside support and parents from Warminster & District Amateur Swimming Club travelled to Bradford on Avon on 16th September 2017 for the last of four heats of the Wiltshire Summer Moonraker League.

The league is made up of 5 divisions, where Warminster currently reside in Division 3, competed with teams from Swindon, Wroughton, and Bradford on Avon.

At the start of the meet Warminster ASC were leading the division with 452 points, Swindon sat a close second with 423 points, Wroughton 330 points, and Bradford on Avon 263 points.

The evening’s races comprised of  relays and individual races and included some team members making their debut.

Supporters cheered from the sidelines and with each race the buzz around the team grew and grew. Ultimately, the team finished in top place with 146 points consolidating their promotion to Division 2 for next summer.

Warminster’s Head Coach and Chairman, Anthony Phillips made the following comments:-

‘Going into the Gala on Saturday we had a slender points advantage over the second placed Club after the first three rounds.

But more importantly history beckoned for the Club as Warminster had never been in Division 2 of the Moonraker Summer League in the new format.

Having worked hard over the Summer and beginning of September the squad were ready to battle for every point. What followed was an incredible few hours of hard fought victories over the three other clubs we were competing against. 

The whole squad from first time swimmers to swimmers who have swam lots of times swam their hearts out, putting everything in for themselves, their team mates and their Club. 

The coaching staff are incredible proud of every swimmer. Not only did they work hard on the night but for months and even years beforehand’.

What an amazing facility, day, and coaching session. Thank you to everyone involved for an inspirational experience.

There seemed to be a unanimous chorus of ‘Can we go again?’ thereby implying that an excellent day was had by all.
