Aqualina are linking up with Medway Mermaids SSC in Kent today. Our coach Sally Mernagh is also a qualified diving coach and is off to help the Mermaids with their diving today.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Aqualina presentation evening on Friday 31st May. Swimmers were awarded their grading certificates and club chairman Tom awarded all of Aqualina’s volunteers with a certificate to recognise their contribution to the club.
Squad captains for 13-14 and 15-17 age-groups were announced:
Captain: Easter Mernagh
Vice captain: Sarah-Jayne Byrne
Captain: Kerri Brennan
Vice captain: Amy Murdoch
We have not had votes from all of the 12 & Under squad so the captain and vice captain will be named as soon everyone as voted.
The new plate for the Ken Cain award was also unveiled. Many thanks to Ken for donating the plate to the club. The first recipient of the award will be announced at the next Aqualina AGM in early 2014.
One more piece of news which wasn’t announced but we would also like to update you on is that club coaches Sally Mernagh and Amy Bryant were successful in passing their exam to become basic skills assessors which they took at the beginning of May. They are now qualified to assess skill levels 1 and 2 at assessment days.
Swimmer Kerri Brennan and coaches Tom Brennan, Amy Bryant, Teresa Killworth and Sally Mernagh all attended a basic judge course today which was organised by the ASA East Region.
The course explained the basics of judging figures and routines and how the judging scale works so if you’ve ever wondered why a swimmer has been given a certain mark ask any of them as they will be able to tell you!
