  • Where can I find my child's results and how do I understand them?
    We publish results of all competitions on our results page. These include licenced meets, Interhouse swims, club championships and any individual swims undertaken during a BML competition. You can also find results of any licenced galas on the British Swimming website rankings page. These will also have performance graphs so it is worth looking at this page. When we compile results we always convert the times from a short course time to a long course time and vice versa. The theory is that a swimmer goes faster in a 25m pool (short course) than a 50m pool (long course), but a converted time can be used by clubs and swimmers. This swimming time converter will explain more. Because we use all results, whether they are licensed meets, interhouse or club champs results, and we automatically convert them, the PB's (personal bests) that we highlight on our results pages may occasionally look different to the ones on the official rankings pages.
  • How can parents be involved?
    Without the involvement of parents there would be no club! There are a number of ways that you can help: Poolside helpers In addition to our coaches, we rely on parents helping on poolside by reading swimming sets out. It really isn't scary and you don't need swimming knowledge. If you are interested just ask and we can show you what to do! The Committee Everyone is welcome at a committee meeting. Come along and be involved in any decision making. Meetings are held every month and dates can be found on the calendar. Committee positions may become vacant and you can find out more about these at the AGM which is held every spring. Interhouse and club championships Running these events requires the help of many parents. The main role is timekeeping. We will give you a stopwatch, and again, will show you what you need to do.
  • Puberty (including periods and useful products)
    The welfare team have put together a document that tells you everything about puberty, and for the girls, information about period products including swimwear. Swim England has produced a page of useful information that covers permitted period swimwear and advice on managing your period whilst competing.
