Braunstone – Keep Hydrated!!!

Please ensure that swimmers attending Braunstone this Sunday are supplied with plenty of fluids.  We are all too aware that it can be very warm on poolside and it is suprising how quickly you can become de-hydrated.

Team Managers that will be on poolside, (David Pycroft, Rob Allcote, Ann Jones, Diane Hartop, Jayne Dreon and Jonathan Crofts) will be actively encouraging all swimmers throughout the day to keep fluid intake up so please ensure they have plenty to last the whole day, and more…..!

In this hot weather the best drink is simply water.

 

Morning Session Warm up 08:55 – 09:55

Afternoon Session Warm up 01:55 – 02:55

 

Good look to all swimmers. #Go Dolphins…..

With people who attain this first step on the qualification will enable us to license our Club Championships. This is the first step to becoming a licensed official, if you have ever been a timekeeper, this cause is ideally suited to you.
