Unfortunately we have had to call off today’s competition due to the severe weather. We didn’t want people putting themselves in danger to get here. Apologies to those who did make the journey before this decision was made.
We will obviously be making refunds of entry fees in due course.
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Rikki Morris as Team Luton’s new Head Coach from January 2018.
A Junior International swimmer competing at Commonwealth Youth Games in his day, Rikki has been coaching at City of Coventry Swimming Club since 2011. Initially helping as volunteer Junior Coach (with 7 – 10 year olds) Rikki was appointed as their Senior Performance Coach, prior to becoming the Assistant Coach in April 2014.
Now an ASA/ UKCC Level 3 coach, Rikki brings to Team Luton a wealth of experience, having coached 5 swimmers to National Age Group medals, trained over 25 National Qualifiers and seen more than 10 of his swimmers be invited on to the England Talent Phase 1 programme.
In addition to himself being a coach on the England Talent Programme from 2014-2017, Rikki has been lead coach on the West Midlands Network Beacon programme since September 2016, mentoring other aspiring coaches in the surrounding area.
The club’s team spirit was clearly in evidence at last night’s Compendium Challenge which saw swimmers from ages 7 to 62 years old taking part. For some it was their first ever competitive events whist others could take pride in completing the endurance test of 8 sprint events in one session. All with the added bonus of spot prizes! Congratulations on the many Qualifying times, Club Records and Personal Best Times.
Thanks to all our officials, coaches, volunteers and parents for your support. We could not hold such galas without you.
After the first two rounds of the Arena League (London) we are in 10th place out of the 16 clubs in Division One. We go into the final round on Saturday 9th December at the Hertfordshire Sports Village with the same number of league points as 9th placed Brompton who were relegated last season from the Premier Division. Read here for more details.
Congratulations to Rhys Davidson selected for England Programmes Phase 1 camps.
This fantastic achievement involves Rhys attending 3 one day camps through September to November aimed at developing his swim specific knowledge.
Head Coach Adam Taylor said, the selection was ” well deserved coming from (his) recent racing success. Well done Rhys – everyone at Team Luton is very proud. Make the most of this brilliant opportunity!”
