MATLOCK NOVICE GALA We have been informed that due to loose tiles at Arc Leisure, the gala has had to be cancelled. Matlock and District SC have let us know as soon as they could, and have apologised for the short notice.
Well done to the little group of our swimmers who braved the drive up to Leeds (and a chilly pool) to take part in the Team Jorvik meet today. "They have represented the club to the highest standard and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Amy" Lovely to hear such great feedback from our coaching staff, and we spy some medals!!
Sunday Training - 10th March Please note there will be NO training due to the pool being used for another booking.
Derwent Swim Series - Round 3 Emails have been sent out to selected swimmers, via Swim Club Manager. Please can you let us know as soon as possible if you are available to attend.
Good Luck to all our swimmers competing at County Championships over the next two weekends. Enjoy yourselves and swim fast #teamrykneld
Are RSC members logging onto Swim Club Manager on a regular basis? We have set up folders that have a lot of knowledge based articles in them including: nutrition and what items you should take to a competition. The folders also contain RSC's own motivational graded swim times for 9 to 17 year old's. Have a look to see how your PB's compare to the grades and challenge yourselves to get up to the next level. B is a competent club swimmer. You are likely to qualify for County standard swims if you are A Grade. AA is the equivalent of Regional level and AAA swimmers capable of achieving success on the national scene. The aim is to have three graded swims to achieve a particular level so pick your best 200 or 400IM then another PB for a distance exceeding 100m and then your own choice form stroke of 50m or 100m. If you have all three at the same level you are as an example an A Grade swimmer. Hopefully they should motivate swimmers to target different strokes and distances. If you can achieve success at 200m and 400m it is easier to drop down to the 100's and 50's than work the opposite way round. Remember there is only one 50m event at the Olympics!
