Young Volunteers Development Day (Jan 2016)


Four young volunteers from Cleethorpes and District Swimming Club joined twenty four other young volunteers from ten clubs across Yorkshire when they attended the Young Volunteers Development Day in Castleford on Saturday 23rd January.


The young volunteers received training in Officiating at swimming events and a First Steps into Coaching course delivered by Sports Coach UK.


The young volunteers have all identified mentors from their clubs who will be supporting them in getting to use what they have learnt as they continue to volunteer in their club environments.


One young volunteer commented, "The day was a great opportunity to learn more skills that I can use to keep involved in my club and help others.  The skills I've learnt will also assist with my GCSE's and Duke of Edinburgh Award.  I also met with lots of other young volunteers and shared our experiences."


The day finished with certificates being presented by the ASA North East Region President, Mr John Hickey.

28 young volunteers from 10 clubs across Yorkshire who attended the Young Volunteers Development Day

Haul of Medals and Personal Bests Galore (Jan 2016)

The areas largest and most prestigious swimming club, Cleethorpes and District, was able to blood exciting young talent in Harrogate for the first competition of the 2016 season and yet again maintained its tradition of producing and developing the finest swimmers in North East Lincolnshire.


With valuable experience and potentially entry to the Yorkshire Championships next month at stake, this was a real opportunity for the club to prove that its coaching and skills regime is by far the best in the region. 


And the hard work paid off with a stunning 97 Personal Best performances along with a total medal tally of 9 Golds, 16 Silvers and 11 Bronze.


A sensational individual performance came from 9 year old Libby Munday with two gold medal performances in the 100m and 200m butterfly; the latter being Libby's first ever participation, which, following pre race nerves gave her a time of 3.46.11, the third fastest time in the British rankings.  Libby went on to achieve three bronze and two silver medals along with six Yorkshire County qualifying times and 2 top 10 British Ranking times in the 50m and 100m Butterfly.


Another of the Clubs future stars is Freya Warne (9) who claimed silver medals in the 100m backstroke and 50m freestyle, and bronze in the 50m backstroke and 100m breaststroke.  Freya achieved her Yorkshire County qualification time in the backstroke and currently ranks third in Yorkshire within this event.  Poppy Barnbrook (9) also claimed a well deserved silver in the 200m backstroke.


Matthew Bradley had a very successful weekend with three gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze.  Matthew looks to be following in the footsteps of older sibling Oliver who took gold in the 13 years 400m individual medley and silver in the 100m breaststroke.  


Finlay Buxton (10) will also represent CADS at the Yorkshire Championships next month in all backstroke events and 200m individual medley.  Finlay raced hard to assert himself in the longer distance events, taking gold in the 400m freestyle and 200m individual medley and silver in 200 backstroke and 200m freestyle.


Zach Clarke again excelled in the Backstroke events, taking Gold and a 4 second PB in the 100m, whilst a time of 2.25.10 in the 200m handed him Silver and his first ever North East District qualification time.  Zach went on to take further Silver and Bronze medals whilst younger sibling Max (9) was thrilled with a superb 9 second PB and a Bronze medal in the 100m Backstroke.


Ruby Binns (11) has made continuous improvements over recent months and was rewarded for her hard work with 100% Personal Best Times and a silver medal in the 50m backstroke.  Team mate Sophia Dolan (11) also swam a personal best in the gruelling 200m butterfly to take a well deserved silver medal; despite her young age Sophia remains an excellent role model for the younger swimmers with her commitment and dedication to hard work. 


Further impressive swims came from Ben Rendall who took silver in the 100m breaststroke, bronze in 50 breaststroke and 50m freestyle.  Deanna Howes achieved silver in the 50m freestyle as did Elizabeth Wells in the 200m individual medley.  With almost every swimmer achieving personal best swims, it proved to be an extremely successful weekend of swimming


Many of the swimmers competing at the weekend train within the Junior squad in which Coaches Matt Allison and Callum Gadding are working on skills sets required to deliver into the England talent selection programs where the club have been successful each year.  CADS will have a total of 23 swimmers achieving Yorkshire County qualification times for the competition set to take place next month over three weekends.
