Menai aa/b Meet6th March 2022
Another fantastic gala this week for Rhyl Dolphins, with it being a first for Erin, Sofia and Thomas. That first gala can be scary, and all three preformed well and we hope they enjoyed it and continue to compete.
So this gala comes with medals and speeding tickets/bands. There are cut off times for each category (AA and B), meaning if a swimmer is faster than that time, they are issued with a speeding ticket for being too fast, resulting in a promotions to the next category. So receiving one of these bands is actually very impressive.
In total, the team came away with 12 speeding tickets as well as 2 gold medals, a silver and a bronze.
Great results guys.
We are very proud of you!
Mason, Freya and Thomas are some of our younger swimmers, looking very proud with their awards.
Will (14) displaying his medal, he also got a fair few speeding bands too!
Mason (11) was very happy with his gold and silver medals, plus a speeding band too.
Luke (13) just managing to keep hold of all his speeding bands, along with his medal. Da iawn.
Spring Conwy Meet 26th-27th Feb 2022
This weekend saw Katie, Kathryn and Mason, returning to the world of galas. Plus a first taste of galas for Ella, Freya, Thomas and Anton.
It was a tough competition, but all our swimmers represented us very well, had some great swims, with everyone getting new times and, more importantly, some new PBs.
Congratulations to Anton on gaining a bronze medal for 50m breast stroke.
Da iawn Dolphins.
Rememberance SuNDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2021
"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,We shall remember them"
A big thanks to Cheryl for organising a poppy wreath to be placed at the Cenotaph on behalf of Rhyl Dolphins this week.
Three of our swimmers went with Cheryl on Sunday to be part of the ceremony and to place the wreath. It was an emotional morning, but our swimmers did us proud.
Thank you Will, Mason and Freya.
Head coach updaTE 15 JANUARY 2021
First a belated Happy New Year to you all and sincerely hope you had a very merry Christmas, unfortunately this year has started with yet another COVID-19 lockdown.
When will it end, hopefully given the National roll out of the coronavirus vaccination the future looks a little more promising for us of the older generation, however we can all contribute to the safety of our loved ones by observing the government’s guidelines.
Wash hands / wear face covering / respect social distancing.
As I write to all of you, there are no clear indications as to when we can safely return to the pool. I fully appreciate and understand it’s not easy to maintain reasonable levels of fitness given the local restrictions but essential for your wellbeing during lockdown and the return to the swimming program (more to follow).
WHO WOULD BE A COACH in these difficult times - it is extremely important that on our return we manage the situation carefully to avoid any possible injuries. All I can ask is you place your trust in the coaching staff and together we will return back to the good old days prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rhyl Dolphins will continue to operate by adhering to the Welsh government and Swim Wales guidelines.
Take care, keep safe and hope to see your all soon.
