On 4th February 2017 we will be getting the whole club together to celebrate all the achievements of 2016, particularly Club Champs.

The awards ceremony will take place at St. Joseph's Hall starting at 7:00pm.

Agnes and I will run through some of the highlights 2016 and speak a bit about developments to look forward to during 2017

We will hand out certificates to everyone who took part in 2016 Club Champs, plus medals, trophies and some special awards to our new club record holders.

If you can't remember your results, check out the Club Champs Web Page.

 

During the evening we will also be announcing our 4 new club captains - with a boy and girl selected by the head coach form the Junior and Senior sections of the club.

 

I look forward to seeing you there,

James Glazebrook (Chalfont Otters Chairman) 

Dear Parent/Guardians, Coaches and Swimmers,

 

Many of you know Liberty Schurer, who has been with the club for almost 5 years.  Liberty is an SCO squad swimmer and on her 13th birthday, at the end of September, she was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma which is a very rare form of bone cancer.

 

  The National Arena Swimming League - 10th December

We enter a team into this competitive league every year.  Traditionally, we have a fancy dress theme for the last round.  We decided this year to do it for Liberty.  Liberty is supporting the Little Princess Trust, who give as many children as possible a real hair wig, free of charge as quickly as possible.  The team will dress up in wigs and pink "princess" tops.  Donations will be made to the charity and we would like to invite you to make such a contribution.  The Just Giving link is:

Brox is raising money to help Little Princess Trust

As a rule, we do not send out emails about charities to support as we would be inundated.  We are on the other hand a team who look after each other and Liberty is one of our own.  She continues to be a valued squad member and we would like to support her through her treatment period in any way we can.

 

Thank you for your understanding and support in this matter.


 

For those of you who have visited Amersham pool recently, you may have seen the display in the reception area showing Chiltern District Council (CDC) proposals for a new swimming pool.  CDC is considering the development of a new leisure and community hub to replace the existing Chiltern Pools, community centre facilities and youth centre.  It is planned to build the new facility next to the current pool, allowing the existing pool will remain operational until the new pool is open.

The Council are keen to receive the views of residents on the proposals, please click on this link to complete their online survey and express your views

(Opens in a new window)

The new facility is proposed to include:-

  • 8-lane 25 metre swimming pool with viewing area
  • Diving / teaching pool alongside a kids' splash pad area
  • 4 badminton court sports hall
  • Climbing wall
  • Children's soft play area and clip 'n' climb
  • Library
  • Cafe area
  • Exercise studios including spin
  • 150 station gym
  • Community centre (events / theatre space) & community meeting spaces.

As a club, not only do we hold squad training sessions at the pool, we also use it for Club Champs galas.  If the redevelopment goes ahead this would allow more pool space for squad training and allow us to hold larger Open Meets there rather than having to go to Maidenhead or Watford as we have to currently.

The council are after your views, particularly from the younger section of the community such as our swimmers.  The more swimmers we can get to complete the survey, the better the chance we have of making sure the new pool will be built to the specification we need (choose electronic timing, a large spectator gallery, land training area,... a 50m pool with divider (worth a try!)).  Please get your swimmers, families and friends to go online and complete CDC's survey and get our voice heard.

For more information, visit the Chiltern District Council website.


 

A big thank you to 10 of our swimmers and their families for representing our club today at the Chalfont St Peter Remembrance Day Parade on 13th November 2016. 

The following swimmers were all an asset to the club, themselves and their families. Club captains - Sammy, Matt and James laid our wreathe.

It was brilliant to have have Chalfont Otters represented at this event in the local community and all those taking part for the club and other Otters representing their schools, clubs etc should have felt very proud of themselves.

 - And Thanks to Heidi for organising it.
