Mya-Ella Dosanjh

For effort on her tumble turns and t30 distance swim. She is doing so well with such stamina.

Coach Alison Murphy and Laura Bennett

Cool Crocs 

Isabelle Aston

Always consistently hard working, a good listener and very determined. She has been performing as one of the top two or three swimmers across all areas of performance in the squad from time trials, distance swims to superb high levels of technique. She also can boast a 100% attendance for May as well as attending some of our extra skill development sessions on dives. This girl has stamina!

Coach Richard Pilcher, Yan Cain and Jordan Butler 


Meghan O’Reilly 

For achieving her targets on all four strokes that we set up in the beginning of March. Great work!

Coach Maria Millere 

Development 1

Catherine Robson 

She has been training brilliant lately. She never has excuses and just gets on with it every single session without fail. Catherine also produced a great time on her 50 backstroke in the diddy league and has some peak meets coming up!

Coach Mark Bromage

Midland Development

Harriet Else 

For her many areas of performance in training and competition this has given her success in races. She is improving all the time on skills working new drills, speed and endurance during training sessions, and always gives 100 percent. Also her attendance record has been impeccable. Harriet has a great attitude and is always willing to listen and learn to improve on her all round performance in the pool and she is now a big part of the Midlands development squad. Well done Harriet keep up the good work. 

Coach Richard Tomlinson


Charlotte Roome

She has been excellent since her move into Midland from Midland Development. She has fit seamlessly into the squad and is already an integral member of the group. As well as her great attitude to hard work and her perseverance in sessions, Charlotte has been fantastic in adapting to new training methods including pre-pool activation activities and new land exercises. Her maturity in her approach to these things goes way beyond her years! She isn’t afraid of a challenge (even a kick one), and always approaches everything with a smile on her face. Well done Charlotte, and keep up the great work!

Coach Jamie Brown


Georgina Walker

She has always been a hard working member of National Squad. She maintains consistent attendance and sets a positive example for the others. After a bout of illness Georgina took control of her swimming and began a three month progression toward the Cardiff International Meet. She started small, with only a few sessions per week, at low intensity and heavily land based. In the end, her hard work and positivity paid off. She’s back to where she wants to be with a spot at English Nationals in the 1500 free and is continuing to thrive in training. This week marked the beginning of her distance program in the lead up to Midland Open Water Champs and English Nationals in the summer. Good luck and well done Georgia.

Coach Mandy Bell and Mark Bromage

Regional Select

Henry Francis

Training more efficiently and is resulting in his times continually dropping. The motivation and aspiration he has is excellent, and his great swims at Cardiff reflect that. Superb work Henry and keep it up! 

Coach Owen Roberts and Gary Heap


Lauren Hurley

Her commitment to swimming now the University year is all but over has been great to see. Training hard and being a great character in the pool is why Lauren is receiving this month’s award! 

Coach Owen Roberts and Gary Heap


Tom Freeman

His effort and determination in the sessions he can attend is exactly what a coach loves to see in the pool. Pushing his limits, enjoying his swims and helps generate a friendly bridge between the younger individuals and university swimmers is why Tom is the Swimmer of the Month for Masters.

Coach Owen Roberts and Gary Heap


Good luck all in the CHallenge Cup tomorrow swimmers! Hopefully raise lots of money to a great cause.
