With many swimmers achieving personal bests in last weekend’s Chorley Marlins Winter Championships we would like to draw your attention to the Competitive Swimming Performance Awards.
The awards can be secured in Breaststroke, Butterfly, Front Crawl, Backstroke, and Individual Medley for Sprint, Middle Distance, or Distance. The awards are split into Sprint (25m,50m and 100m); Middle Distance (All 200m & 400m freestyle) and Distance (400m IM, All 800m and 1500m Freestyle). The award scheme is designed to motivate and reward achievements of swimmers at any age or level.
Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Awards are available depending on times taken to complete the relevant distances. Awards can also be given retrospectively for example if you have a Gold time you can also purchase the Silver and Bronze award if you wish and if you have a Silver time you can also purchase the Bronze award.
Swimmers individual best times can be checked at: https://www.swimmingresults.org/individualbest/
Once the swimmer achieves a time at that level for any stroke, they can claim the round badge that relates to the distance (Sprint, Middle, Distance) and the relevant stroke flash to indicate which stroke they have achieved the award in. They can then collect further flashes as times are achieved for each stroke of that distance. The idea is to get the circular round badges for Sprint, Middle Distance and Distance in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum and have each of the strokes under the badge.
The CSP Awards can be purchased from the club. Please place your order form and payment (cheques payable to Chorley Marlins ASC) in a sealed envelope labelled ‘Competitive Performance Award Order’ and post in the Chorley Marlins post box.
