The swimmers were mainly moving on from the DX meet and we looked at race tactics as well as processes. As you can see with how we develop our swimmers over each cycle, the focus is always the end of the cycle meet, thats where we look at times and goals, which will be achieved so long as the programme is followed and goals are set correctly. Once again in heavy training and a heavy gala programme, some swimmers doing 8 or 9 events in a day, the swimmers were awesome.

Hitting PB's, warming up, warming down correctly, good nutrition and hydration. Whilst some people view me as harsh and firm, it is days like this where is pays off and the reason I insist on things being done right becomes apparent. The swimmers that attended this meet were so well drilled and understanding of the process that I was asked if we were a performance squad instead of a small town club.

Other coaches spying on what we were doing, what we were focusing on and the style of feedback is always a good sign that we as a club are doing things right.

The reports I have had from this meet have been exceptional.

The performances dont stop with medals, those of you that know me, know I see medals as a bonus, after all you cannot control what others do in the pool, I look at improvements and to have masters swimmers performing life time bests is incredible, what was equally impressive was the improvement once again from club champs or midland masters in September to this meet.

A really exciting weekend of high class racing from our Masters contingent. Belper Marlins With the entry issues a small team went to this meet. I know I sound like a broken record but when the swimmers keep performing as they do and they show the level of professionalism they do, we have to give them credit. To round it up, more PB's, more processes, more race development, great skills and awesome behavior.

Midland Short Course A small team of 4 swimmers entered this gala. This is harder to get into than normal Midlands as it is either 15 and under or Open age groups and with it being over one weekend instead of 2 they higher the qualifying standards.

If we run the meet at Easter in we will clash with the British Championships which is a target meet for top swimmers at the City of Birmingham and many of the clubs who support our meet.

This would reduce the support that members of the Club can provide for the Open meet and reduce the number of swimmers available. With this in mind we have decided not to run the Open Meet at Easter in However, as a competitive club we would like to support swimming in the Midlands by ensuring that we still run a highly competitive Open Meet. With this in mind we are currently planning to run a meet in October or November The details have yet to be confirmed as we do not want to clash with other established meets running at that time and the National League.

We envision the meet being a Level 2 run over a weekend and including the majority of the events normally covered within our programme.
