Friday Night 20 minute challenge # 4 - 08/06/2018

posted 9 Jun 2018, 05:24 by Clive Greenhalgh

The fourth 20 minute challenge for our Sharks was another fantastic success.  The swimmers are really pushing themselves and we are seeing over 30 lengths in the first session and over 40 lengths in the second session; this is well in advance of the targets that I had set them before the start of the year - well done to all the swimmers.

The winners of the most improved swimmers on the night are: Hannah Farid from the first session and Maisie Lissiak in the second session - excellent job girls.

We have at least two more of these events scheduled for the year so keep putting in the effort and the trophy may be yours.

The full results are attached below.


3rd Friday night Gala

posted 12 May 2018, 04:12 by Clive Greenhalgh

Just a month since Jarvis Parkinson secured two silvers at the Commonwealth Games our latest batch of young swimmers competed in the third Friday night gala which is an event we run with Rossington swimming club.  This is a friendly event which still provides our young athletes with an opportunity to compete against their peers, to potentially win medals and get personal bests.

There was medals for the first three in each age group and competition medals for those who weren't lucky enough to win a medal this time (note to self - order the correct number of competition medals next time!)

It was a brilliant night, and when you consider this was the first time some of the swimmers had competed in an open event they did brilliantly.

Both clubs would like to thank the parents and friends for their patience as the event did take a little longer than expected - we didn't know how long the mystery event, the old English backstroke, would take and as always the medal ceremony does take a little time, but I think it is worth recognising the efforts of the medal winners as it is important to give them the praise they are due.

Thanks must also go to all our volunteers from the two clubs, this is why we give our time freely and these starter events give the swimmers a taste of what is to come in their swimming careers.  The Armthorpe crew was: Leah, Alison, Michele, Millie, Joe, Kirsty, Amelia, Eleanor, Azriel, Marise, Ian, Derek, Pete, Maureen, Sue, Nicole, Melissa, Lizzy, Ian, Sarah

The results are listed below and will be posted on the notice board.

Barnsley League Round 2 at Barnsley

posted 30 Apr 2018, 03:24 by Pete Hardy   [ updated 12 May 2018, 04:17 by Clive Greenhalgh ]

For various reasons we had to field a slightly weaker team at this gala but the positive out of this was how pleased I was with the commitment of ALL our swimmers and the strong performances that they produced under a lot of pressure from a lot of very good swimmers from the other clubs. It was very pleasing to see that we had no DQ's - this shows discipline and self control under pressure and it is a significant reason that we are still second in the Division. ( Barnsley had 5 DQ's, Sheffield had 5 and Wakefield 6 that's a lot of points that we gained on them by our self control. Well Done to all. In the 10 and under Boys we had 3 pre speed swimmers who swam very well and gained us points that to me were a bonus. We had a last minute hitch when Molly Grayson one of our Open swimmers had someone run into the back of her car so thank you to the other swimmers who swam up and filled the gap. Maddison Johnson who wasn't feeling too good in the morning still managed to turn in good performances and swam in 5 races.  In the end we were only 5 points behind City of Sheffield who will most likely be hit with a penalty of 10 points for swimming an eligible swimmer. After 2 rounds we are still 2nd in the Division so lets see if we can hang onto that for the next two galas.
Result :    City of Wakefield - 110    Armthorpe - 110   Borough of Barnsley - 138    City of Sheffield - 115
Times are in attachment but some of the splits are missing ( watch malfunction) and remember all starts in the shallow end were from the water so very difficult to get a pb without a dive start.

Armthorpe/Rossington Trophy Gala

posted 22 Apr 2018, 10:39 by Pete Hardy   [ updated 12 May 2018, 04:18 by Clive Greenhalgh ]

This was the second annual gala which took place on Sunday 22 April at Armthorpe Leisure Centre. These races were all relay races and so there was continual action and movement around the pool as swimmers made their way to the start positions. There were many good swims particularly form our younger swimmers the most exciting being a very close last length race between Marcus Moreno and a very good South Axholme swimmer which Marcus just came out on top. Overall there were too many disqualifications so we will have to do a bit more work on our takeovers. We had 4 dqs, which is 4 too many especially when we won the races so lost 16 points in all. However it was a very enjopyable gala with Armthorpe coming out on top the final scores being:  Armthorpe   122      South Axholme   95     Knottingley   52    Rossington   31.
So well done to all swimmers. Times are attached.

Doncaster Invitation Cup

posted 16 Apr 2018, 02:13 by Pete Hardy   [ updated 12 May 2018, 04:19 by Clive Greenhalgh ]

This was the first gala of its kind at Armthorpe. Our opponents were Knottingley who were overwhelmed by a very strong team performance from Armthorpe who ran out winners 71 points to 37. This was the first competitive gala for some of our swimmers who performed very well. For me the most outstanding swims of the afternoon were Sam Honeybones 30.85 for 50 Free and Ben Stilborns 25 Free of 16.75 and 50 Free 37.41. Well done to both of you. I am sure that there will be many pb's so keep an eye open on the notice board or this website to see how you did. The draw for the semi finals will take place shortly which will be a much tougher competition. Anyway, for now well done to all the swimmers and parents who helped run the gala. Incidently, many of the parents were doing jobs they had never done before but you wouldn't have noticed.

BML Gala 18 March 2018

posted 19 Mar 2018, 12:11 by Pete Hardy   [ updated 20 Mar 2018, 05:22 ]

On Sunday we all got up to see that we had snow in the night. During the morning I had many enquiries - is it still on??  Yes it was and what a good gala it turned out to be. The other clubs in our division Barnsley. Wakefield and City of Sheffield all managed to get to Armthorpe for an exciting afternoons swimming. There were lots of great swims on display in front of a packed poolside which was noisy and supportive all afternoon but when we got to the cannon at the end of the gala the noise was truly impressive so many thanks to parents and swimmers who created such a good atmosphere. As this was round 1 of the year some of the younger swimmers were experiencing the excitement of competitive swimming for the first time outside the club environment. They all did extremely well. There were many great swims from everyone and lots come into mind as I am writing this now, Maddie Johnsons fightback in the girls relay, Aaron Cocker and Thomas Barley's first big gala and at the other end of the spectrum Christian Siminon our French Masters swimmer in the open boys team, and Eleanor Lakin swimming her own age group and breastroke in the Open category and coming away with a win and a pb. There were lots and lots of great swims and I was very pleased with the teams performance against clubs who are much bigger than ourselves. In the end we finished second to Barnsley a position I would have been absolutely delighted with before we started. So, its a great start to the season lets keep it up.
Result ; Barnsley   -    142        Armthorpe   -   137      Wakefield   -   111     City of Sheffield   -   91  
** PBs just added  77 of them wich is really outstanding
