‘England may not have brought the silverware home this weekend but Marlins certainly did!
For the swimmers that entered, this weekend saw a trip to Blackpool in sweltering heat (although I think the parents definitely came off worse with the heat, packed in the stands frantically wafting their programmes in an attempt to keep cool!) to compete in the North Lancs Level 3 meet which took place across Saturday and Sunday.
There was tough competition with swimmers there from Blackpool, Leyland, Lancaster, Ormskirk, Burnley, Garstang, Pioneer 79, Blackburn, Fleetwood, Preston, Carnforth and Clitheroe but the swimmers did themselves, their families and the club proud bringing home a total of 3 speeding tickets, 21 medals and combined PB Improvements of 2:14.53!!! A huge well done to the following swimmers who competed this weekend:
27.23 Combined PB Improvement

This is the last gala before our summer shut down (I can already hear the kids, coaches and parents cheering!) but keep your eyes peeled on the board at Chorley Leisure Centre for all upcoming galas!
We have a brilliant uptake on Marlins galas but galas like this one are always low on numbers. If your child hasn't entered a non Marlins gala before it's a great opportunity for them to swim at different venues against different swimmers, if they'd like to give it a go, speak to one of the Marlins helpers you'll regularly see around the pool, any coaches or email Claire our Competitions Secretary, all will be happy to help with questions!
Well Done Swimmers!’

I must apologise as I was unavailable this afternoon to put a post up on here for the cancellation of training tonight (Sun 8th July), due to the leisure centre being unable to clear the water properly. Sorry to all those that made the journey to the pool to be disappointed, hopefully the leisure centre should have this back to normal soon.

The water clarity has been deemed as unsafe to swim as visibility is severely reduced, therefore we've made the decision to cancel the Mini's and Squad training tonight in the main pool. The small pool is unaffected and all Nicola's classes including her 6pm class will go ahead in the small pool as normal.
Main Pool Closed - No Mini's or Training @ Chorley 5-7pm
This Saturday is the next round of the Micro League NW at Leyland, 3:30pm Warm Up. Please have a look at the teamsheet below and comment on your availability.

Just a reminder that the Mini's Gala is taking place at Chorley Saturday 30th June, therefore there will be no training for any squad or lessons for those Mini's that haven't entered the gala.
All the minis who have entered please arrive at your normal lesson time.
Normally we would have published these sooner but we've had laptop problems this week but which are all sorted now, so please see attached PDF file for the full results of the gala.
