The big one is coming....Norfolk County Championships 2016 (Qualification Required)
This is the biggest competition that most will enter so i would love to take the biggest team possible to this one.
Just before i started as head coach there were 28 GYSC swimmers - lets smash that record by getting at least 40 swimmers to this one.
Closing date is Sunday 20th Dec - for this gala you don't need to put entry times as they are drawn straight from the rankings database so we do that bit for you - just make sure you get your forms in to us really early - all times achieved up to the resolution meet from licenced galas will go towards entering this gala.
Forms are being accepted right now - get them in soon!
If you are unsure of which races to enter or have any questions please ask Liam or Rhianna.
We are resuming land training at the High School on Monday evenings @ 7.00pm - The sessions will be run by Dave Stock from Great Yarmouth Athletics Club and will initially last for 45mins - Gold, Platinum & Elite Squad swimmers are encouraged to attend, go check it out!
Entries are now being accepted for this years Age Group Championship, which will be held at the Phoenix Pool on the 7th & 8th November @ 5.30pm. We will also be running the Club Championship 200m Freestyle Handicap race on the evening of the 7th.

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.
