Swim Applications

Friday, 13 December 2013

We have received Swim Applications for 2014 already!  It is great some of you are being very prompt and organised but please bear in mind - ONLY to post forms back in the year you swim. The problem is that we require medicals to be carried out 'in the year' you actually swim.

Please send all forms in TOGETHER 'in the year' you are swimming to our swim secretary This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
