Nathan Henderson recently broke a Norfolk record that has been held since 1996 by a swimmer from the old Norwich Penguin club. He claimed the record for 100M long course Breaststroke in Portland Oregon USA but qualified for the record as he is still a member of GYSC. The race was swam in a time of 1.06.36 beating the previous record by over half a second.
Club Memberships are due for renewal on the 1st September.

GYSC has been in consultation with Sentinel Leisure over their plans to redevelop the Phoenix Pool at Bradwell. The plans include a very significant upgrade to the pool and changing area. as well as the addition of gym facilities and a dance studio. During the building works, which are scheduled for this winter, the club is making plans to relocate any training sessions affected to the Marina Centre in Great Yarmouth. We look forward to completion in Spring 2016 when the pool will provide a much improved training and gala experience.

The Club's exciting future plans to expand and improve the quality of our training will require additional funds.With the smaller squad numbers we are currently experiencing, if we are to avoid significant increases in our squad fees, then additional sources of income will be required.Fortunately we have a very enthusiastic team of members on the fundraising committee who are organising an exciting series of events. Club fundraising requires a lot of members doing a little, not a few doing a lot. Please ensure that you get involved and enjoy!
