The National Junior League team sheet is now in the notice board. I know i said the same a year ago but we have since had new members and i would like to reiterate what i said. The Junior league is the most prestigious junior competition in the Country, It is Nationwide culminating in a grand final We are affiliated to the London Region and whilst we are a long way off from being with the elite we are improving each year.
The competition lends itself to making sure we have the strongest team possible available for each round. There are 3 rounds, April, May, June. I would ask, as we are a relatively small club for all swimmers to make themselves available for selection. This is the sort of competition where Grandparents, aunts, uncles and the rest of the family would be highly entertained by their siblings in a friendly but competitive gala. Because of our size any dropouts have a huge effect on our ability to be placed higher up in the league so i would ask for everyone to be available. Often the biggest obstacle is being able to get to the gala but if there are any problems please let myself or any official know and we can sort out lifts. Each year i find myself getting a little more excited by the prospect of Halstead progressing, and we are half way in from a 5 year turnaround with our juniors to not only do well but also progress to the senior teams. Enough said, i'm rambling now, but please put a tick by your name. Many Thanks JOHN.
