We hope all the swimmers and parents enjoyed todays Mini Marlins Gala. Well done to all the swimmers who took part, hopefully you will want to compete in future club galas. A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped out today, we couldn't have run it without you.
The Mini Marlins Gala is taking place on Saturday 26th at Leyland Leisure Centre, as a result normal Minis and Development Group lessons will not be running this Saturday. Only members who have entered the gala should attend on Saturday.
Dates for Chorley Marlins Easter break. There will no training on Friday April 15th, Saturday 16th, Sunday 17th and Monday 18th, including no Mini Marlins on Saturday 16th April.
Chorley Marlins are introducing new club kit designs in a range of clothing items.
An advantage of the new range is that the designs will never be discontinued. With our existing swimmers t-shirts there are several different designs and styles due to suppliers discontinuing ranges, going forward this will not be an issue.
The kit will be manufactured using sublimation printing which means the design, logos and names are dyed into the material during the manufacturing process. The advantage of this is that names and logos will not peel or crack which has been a problem in the past. Members names can be added to the back of the tops and initials on the shorts and tracksuit bottoms at no extra cost.
Items will be available in a wide range of male, female and youth sizes including slim fit. Sizing samples can be borrowed here a deposit is required which is refunded when the item is returned.
The main colour of the kit will continue to be the club colours, royal blue.
Coaches, teachers and poolside helpers will wear matching club polo shirts.
There is no VAT on youth sizes, prices will be as follows:
Swimmers Short Sleeve Shirt - youth £16.66 adult £19.99
Tracksuit Jacket - youth £27.99 adult £33.59
Hooded Training Top - Full Zip - youth £25.99 adult £31.19
Hooded Training Top - Pullover - youth £24.59 adult £29.51
Hooded Training Top - 1/4 Zip - youth £28.99 adult £34.79
Tracksuit bottoms - youth £18.39 adult £22.07
