Derby and Notts Round 3 ('A' Final) Report

After two tough rounds Bramcote competed in the ‘A’ final of the Derby and Notts Junior League on Saturday 24th June. This is the second year in a row that Bramcote has reached the A final.

Bramcote achieved 5 first places, with numerous second and third place finishes in addition, which is an improvement on last year, with nearly all races being won (and lost) on the touch.  It demonstrated that every part of the race is as important as each other; whether it be the start, turn or finish.

A great team spirit prevailed with fantastic enthusiasm from the swimmers (and parents!) with their support for the team, with every swimmer being cheered to the finish.

Although it was a second consecutive fifth place finish, this year resulted in a much closer competition, with there not being much relative difference between third and fifth place; and also Bramcote achieving a higher points total than last year.

The final results were:

  1. City of Derby – 206
  2. Nottingham Leander – 193
  3. CABSC – 167
  4. Sutton – 159
  5. Bramcote – 145
  6. Belper – 101

Congratulations to all swimmers who made this year’s Derby and Notts League competition another big success, including those who swam in previous rounds to help us reach the final!

Overall (and provisionally), we finished in 5th place in the league out of 28 clubs – again demonstrating a fantastic achievement!

As hosts of the gala, we got a brilliant response to our requests for help on the night. Huge thanks to all our coaches, team managers, officials, those on the door, recorders, announcer, to Cheryl, our new gala co-ordinator who did a fantastic job and to our co-hosts Notts Leander. Also, thanks must go to Katie who provided the face paint and Seema who created all the flags for everyone to wave – a big effort which is greatly appreciated by all!

Level 2 coach vacancy

LEVEL 2 COACH/HEAD OF SQUAD: 6-8 hours per week (plus galas and open meets), but flexible for the right candidate.

Bramcote SC is a friendly but competitive focused club in West Nottingham. We are an ambitious club who are currently undergoing a period of expansion at all levels, from our Academy programme to our performance squads. We are seeking an enthusiastic coach working primarily with our Junior (8-12 year) swimmers as a Head of Squad, inspiring, motivating and coaching our young talent to the next level of performance.

Our vision is to equip our swimmers to achieve their full potential, and we believe the best way to achieve this is to support our coaches in their own development so that our swimmers gain the best possible coaching. Bramcote SC has an excellent record of investing in training and several of our coaches have progressed to coaching at elite level. The successful candidate will be fully supported in achieving additional qualifications and will benefit from working alongside a number of experienced teachers and coaches. We also have a unique in-house professional development programme, delivered by our ASA Level 4 qualified Director of Coaching.

Applicants should have experience of working with swimmers of this age and hold a Level 2 coaching or teaching qualification. Our ideal candidate will be able to work well within our dedicated coaching team, have excellent interpersonal skills and have a passion to improve the quality of swimming within the club. The club believes the primary focus of training sessions in our Junior section should be on developing technical skills, and it is essential that the successful applicant is prepared to fully embrace this philosophy.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.

If the opportunity to work in this type of environment excites you and you would like more information please contact our Director of Coaching, Dave Sankey on 07793235321.
