CMK Development Meet
Well done to all the swimmers who took part in CMK's Development Meet on Saturday - some fantastic PBs were achieved and a great atmosphere all round. A huge thank you to all the volunteers & officials who helped out (some in new roles, well done!) and many who had no swimmer there at all (a MASSIVE thank you, to you!).
A new training schedule starts on Sunday 7 September.
The Committee has undertaken an assessment of the Club’s position at the start of the new season 2014/2015. As a part of this, the club’s fee structure was reviewed and the decision was taken to increase the squad fees from 1 September 2014.
This decision was not taken lightly and took into consideration our increased running costs, the reduction in funding revenues and the requirement to access more pool time to support our growth strategy. In parallel we continue to actively seek new funding to support the growth and long term sustainability of the club.
We assure you that only these additional costs are passed on in the monthly fee. The new fees can be seen here.
Medals for CMK at Nationals
It was a bumper year for City of Milton Keynes Swimming Club at
this year’s ASA National Championships, collecting no less than
five medals across the Youth and Age Group competitions >>
ASA Speed Awards
City of Milton Keynes Swimming Club is now launching the ASA
Speed Awards. The scheme encourages swimmers to focus on
achieving set times so they can purchase the flashes for each
stroke. There are four levels - Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
This Scheme is open to all Mini stars, Rising stars, Bagcat
Development, and Bagcat Performance swimmers.
These are the times that need to be achieved to purchase these
awards. These awards are an excellent way of motivating
swimmers in competition and training. They also help swimmers
understand the importance of personal best times and encourage
them to improve them each time they swim.
When swimmers achieve the times on the strokes listed it will be necessary to email Lisa so that she can verify the time and arrange for the delivery of the award to the swimmer. She will use results on the British Rankings to verify the times. The awards cost £2.00 for the large main badge and certificate and £1.00 for the flash of each stroke as they are achieved.
Please contact Lisa for further information or questions.

CMK continued their outstanding performance record at the Oxford and North Bucks County Championships in 2014. Against very strong and improving opposition CMK maintained its position as the most decorated club on the podium. 9 times CMK swimmers won all 3 medals on offer. As always the relays provided a lot of the excitement. CMK took 7 titles and lost out by hundredths of a second in a further 3. The senior girls teams set records in 3 events including the girls senior medley in a time of 4.12.64.
Congratulations to Lucy Chenery who achieved a British Disability Record, Joss Ulyett for achieving four South East England Senior Records and Charlotte Evans, Oliver Lines, Rebecca Marshall, Isobel Jones, Emily Jones and Joss Ulyett for achieving County Records.
The biggest cheer of the meet was reserved for Ryan Anscomb's close win in the Mens 100m Free from Lane One. Congratulations are also due to swimmers who gained their first regional qualifying times: Owen Drabwell, Yasmin Dos Santos, Edith Patey, Charlotte Folkes and Georgia Richardson, and indeed all those who contributed.
