Please see below the programmes for the weekend (in session format). These are currently based on us running with 8 lanes - we are hoping that for sessions 2,3,5 and 6 we will be able to run with 10 lanes - this will lead to an earlier finish time. We are just waiting on confirmation of final officials numbers.
Also below are the timings for the weekend and the warm up details.
We have some guys coming on Sunday that are from Youth Sport Nutrition. We hope that coaches, parents and swimmers find them useful to talk to and for the recovery drinks!
Swim Path will also be at the meet with their swim shop.
Car parking is available opposite the leisure centre - £5 all day if you validate your ticket with reception. Alternatively you can park for free in the Leisure Park (by the bingo, cinema, premier inn and food outlets). This is a 5 minute walk away from the pool.
We are pleased to announce that from Monday 5th March our club kit supplier will be Xpertees , a new online mini shop where parents can order kit and have delivered straight to home. As well as polo shirts and hoodies you’ll find T-shirts, shorts, track pants and a beanie hat.
Swim hats are still available from Hilary and club coaches at £7 each. These are not available online because they come from a different supplier.
Clicking on the link below will take you directly to the BHSC mini shop.
There will be no swimming at any location today (Friday 2nd) or over the weekend owing top facility closures. We hope that normal service and sessions will resume on Monday 5th March...

Also the following sessions will NOT be running on Friday 2nd March:
Friday AM at Uni Pool
