Club’s new kit by Swimzi

We are delighted to advise you all that Moortec Semiconductor Limited have agreed to sponsor the club. We are extremely grateful to them for their generous support.

In order for their company logo to be incorporated on the club’s merchandise, Swimzi have extended the deadline for ordering to Sunday 16th February. This is intended to go live on their website on Monday 3rd February.

As mentioned before, the kit will thereafter go into production and delivery is expected by April. Clothing orders will be sent directly to your home address and swimming hats will be sent to the club for us to distribute. Delivery is £3.95 and free for orders over £60. Please be aware that once closed, the shop will most likely not be open again for another six months so now is your chance to get your order in!

Please take a look at our exciting new range www.swimzi.com/club/paignton-s-c/

Land Warm Up For Swimmers

An effective swimming specific warm up is vital if you want your swimmers to perform to their best in the pool.

We have worked with British Swimming to produce a guide to pre-pool routines for swimmers aged approximately 12 to 16.

The warm ups should be performed in the order:

  1. Raise
  2. Mobilise
  3. Activate
  4. Prime

Swimmers should perform three to five repetitions for between two and four exercises of each sub-stage.

For the prime and activate stages, once a swimmer is able to complete all exercises with good technique and control, they can move to the next level.
