Final blog from Bryanston....
Overall the week was a fantastic experience, the highlights of the week included: meeting Calum Jarvis and Jemma Lowe, the Land Training and learning about the stroke techniques of the swimmers.

The best day for me was Friday as that was the day I got to interact with the swimmers the most. I got to work with the children on the strokes, also on this day we had an hour and a half on land training which was amazing. To start off I joined in on the benchball then after that we measured the flexibility of the swimmers to compare against the first day, everyone had improved during the week which was a good result. After that we had our final lecture where all of the certificates were given out for taking part in the week and with their 100m butterfly times on. All of the swimmers had improved at least a second on their times over the week which was a great achievement.

To finish off the spectacular week I had a 3 course meal which was delicious.

To sum up the week I would say that it is one of the best experiences I have ever had and will definitely be going back next year.

On behalf of the club we would like to thank Chris Wood, Nathan Clarke and Shaun Wood for supporting the Regional camp, three talented young volunteers giving up their time is a fantastic reflection on the club. Thanks chaps and so glad you enjoyed your week.

If any of our swimmers want to talk to the boys about the week with a view to going next year I would highly recommend that you do. Bryanston is an inspiring place and every year swimmers achieve fantastic results and have a great week doing it!

Hope you all managed to catch up on your sleep 🙂

Today was another great day at Bryanston we started off with a great breakfast, which was bacon, eggs and beans. Then we had Land Training which was small activities at the start and then we went into a circuit exercises. Afterwards we were at the pool and the swimmers had their session with the GB swimmers Callum Jarvis and Jemma Lowe. In this session the swimmers worked on their Butterfly stroke. Following this we had lunch and then a lecture where the swimmers were asked what their ideal swimmer and coach was. The swimmers were then back in the pool for the second time and this time they were working on their stroke counting which was taken by Tess and Liam. Then we were back for the final meal of the day where I had sweet and sour pork with egg fried rice which was of course amazing. Finally we had a talk from Callum and Jemma about the highs and lows of their swimming careers and they had their medals for us to look at as well. Below is a picture of me with them.

The Swim England South West Swim Camp has started and again this year it is being held at Bryanston School. Representing Burnham-on-Sea on staff are Chris Wood, Nathan Clarke and Shaun Wood and each day they will send us a summary of their day, today Chris writes about their first day..........

We arrived at five past ten as the roads were clear, when we arrived we greeted everyone and then went to our rooms to unpack. Following this, we then had a meeting, then greeted the swimmers and I showed them to their rooms. After this, we had a fire drill followed by a 20-minute drive to the swimming pool which is in Milton Abbey as the Bryanston swimming pool is being refurbished. At the pool, the swimmers did 200 IM time trials which Nathan, Bex, Liam and I timed. Afterwards, we had the evening meal, I had a lamb burger and sautéed potatoes with salad (which was amazing!). The land training was after the evening meal, the swimmers were put into groups and then each one of the staff was assigned to help one of the groups. Finally, the swimmers had a lecture where they were put into groups and they made puppets as their groups' mascots. Chris Wood.

I have asked the boys to send pictures so you can all see what an amazing place and camp this is - let's hope it's not all about the food, which Chris is right about - it is amazing!

Joining Us

If you’re new here and looking to join then just fill in your details below and we’ll get back to you. As every member of the club is a volunteer it may take us a couple of hours but don’t worry, we’ll have you in the pool in no time!
When inquiring if you could give us the age and ability of the swimmer wanting to join. Every new member who isn’t already a member of the ASA gets three free trial sessions.

Before a swimmer can enter the pool, the parent must complete our membership & medical form for safety purposes. You can go ahead and complete this while waiting for a response from us if you like, that way we can get the swimmer in straight away. It can be found on the “Membership Form” page here

Once our membership secretary Kelly has provided you with your three trial session dates, you are free to come along and see what you think. We have seating directly on poolside for parents so young swimmers are always a wave and smile away if they’re nervous.

If you both love it and wish to continue after the trial sessions you will be asked to complete a sign up form to pay your membership through direct debit with our partner GoCardless. Once again you can go ahead and set this up if you prefer, no plans will be added to your account until the trial sessions are over. You can find the form to complete here Membership Payment Setup Page or via the GoCardless button under “Forms” at the top of the website at any time. If you would rather wait, Kelly will inform you when you need to complete this and it must be done prior to becoming a full member.

We look forward to hearing from you! 🙂
