Rossington Amateur Swimming Club | Raising The Roof | Rossington RASCALS - 20th May 2012

Raising The Roof - Rossington Amateur Swimming Club


Rossington Swimming Club - The RASCALS offers learn-to-swim for beginners and improvers as well as training for competitive age groups and masters swimmers.

Our aim is to offer all swimmers an affordable and enjoyable experience at whatever level they wish to work to. We offer swimming lessons from as little as £10 per month and with our team of 15 trained teaching volunteers we offer a friendly atmosphere in which the vital skill of swimming can be learned.

The RASCALS are more than just a club - we are part of our local community, our swimmers come from Rossington and adjoining villages and we offer a meeting place for families as well as away days and parties on top of the swimming which brings us all together.

On the competitive side the club competes in the Barnsley Minor League and the Pocklington League; swimmers also have the opportunity to compete in a large number of local individual events. Read more

What a great start to 2013

Today we only had 20 swimmers and were dwarfed in numbers by the other teams, but does it matter when you have the heart of a lion? We welcome to the RASCALs for their first full caps Iestyn Mawby and Lewis Waterhouse. We are so fortunate to have swimmers that do whatever strokes they are asked to do and no-one epitomised this today as well as Lucy Pickard who took up the reins when Clive realised that Emily was down to swim twice in the same race!

There were a good number of first places today with Jordan, Chelsea, Josh S, Iestyn, Emily and Liam raising the roof as well as the 14 year old boys and the boys open team – the Scunthorpe team coach could not believe how fast our boys were :)

The final result was Scunthorpe 194, Rossington 145, Dearne Valley 145 and Minsthorpe 140

Well done to all the swimmers and many thanks to our volunteers for making the gala possible –Nicky, Nigel, Neil, Glynn, Jill and Clive.

Barnsley Minor League Results

Small team, Huge Commitment

Today we were not at full strength missing a few of our regulars but the swimmers who did make the trip to Knottingley swam superbly. We welcome Iestyn to the competitive squad and congratulate both Michael and Sellars on joining the sub-30 second club for the 50m front crawl.

First places were at a premium today as the other teams were stronger this time round, Josh Sellars and Jordan coming through for well earned victories.

The final result was South Hunsley 206, South Axeholme 149, Knottingely 137 Rossington 131

Well done to all the swimmers and many thanks to our volunteers for making the gala possible –Sandra, Hayley, Neil, Nicky, Jill and Clive.

New Sponsor

We are coming close to the end of another season and we are collecting prizes together for the celebration evening on 15th December at the Welfare. We have collected a new sponsor in SimplySwim who provide good quality and inexpensive swimming equipment, many thanks to them for their support.
