In December 2015, Club member Neil Ferguson, suffered a serious stroke which changed his life at the age of 13. Inspired by Neil´s friends and Age Group Squad swimmers Ruaridh and Callum (and their dads) who took part in the Stroke Association Resolution Run, Cati decided to swim the 10 km at the Great Scottish Swim on Friday 26th August. This was her first 10 km as well as being her first ever swim in a Scottish loch. Congratulations on taking on this challenge Cati for such a great cause!

Welcome to the new season of swimming! I hope everyone had a fantastic summer, and that you are all feeling inspired by our Team GB athletes competing in Rio!

All of our squads are now back in the water, with many new faces (swimmers and coaches) getting used to their new schedules.

Over the next few weeks I will be running squad meetings for parents. This will allow you to hear a little more about your squad and give you the opportunity to ask any questions which you may have. Your squad administrator will notify you of the time and place for your meeting in due course.

The first event on our calendar is our Club Championships. You will have received some information about this already and you will get more detail as we get closer to the time.

I look forward to getting around to visit all of our squads over the next couple of weeks and I hope everyone has a very successful season of swimming!

I hope you all took the opportunity to watch our amazing Team GB athletes at the recent Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. It was a very successful Olympics for Team GB with a record haul of medals resulting in Great Britain finishing second in the medal table! What an outstanding result!

Warrender was represented by Keri-anne Payne and Dan Wallace at the Games, with (previous member) Craig Benson also on the team.

Keri-anne swam the 10km Open Water on Copacabana Beach, what an amazing venue! It was a very competitive race with Keri-anne finishing in 7th place at her third Olympic Games.

On the pool team, Dan Wallace was a member of the Men’s 4x200 Freestyle relay team which won a silver medal behind the United States of America. Dan teamed with Stephen Milne, Duncan Scott and James Guy; all putting in outstanding performances to claim the silver medal. Dan also made it through to the final of the 200m Individual Medley.

Craig Benson swam in the heats and semi-finals of the 200m Breaststroke, finishing 15th.

Well done to Keri-anne, Dan and Craig on their fantastic performances, we are all very proud!

Now that our Olympic athletes have returned, we get set to farewell our Paralympic team which includes our very own Scott Quin. Scott heads to London on Saturday for his prep camp and then the team fly to Rio on the 1st September. Scott will swim the SB14 100m Breaststroke.

Good luck Scott, we will all be cheering you on!!!
