Thanks again to Simon Wright, COSSS Masters swimmer, from GBswimstars for his time and expertise in taking the photos for the 2013 COSSS calendar. Individual photos will be available to order by putting your name down on the list on the notice board from Thursday 15th November.

Lucy Spencer and Lewis Coleman have both been selected to compete for GB at the European Short Course Championships in France, 22-25th November. They have been picked for the team based on results from the summer meets. This is their first senior GB cap for both swimmers and shows their excellent progress over the last couple of years to make this high level meet.

 Swimmers from Senior Elite, AGN and JO1 crossed the Pennines to compete in the Stockport Open Meet. Like last year, it was a weekend of high quality swimming at this level 1/2 meet and the COSSS swimmers performed well given they are in their endurance phase of training, securing 77 top 3 finishes in finals and heat declared results and finishing 2nd in the top club competition.

Swimmers from JO3 and Junior Development competed at the 24th annual Sheffield City B Grade meet on Saturday 17th November.

 After a compelling first round at Ponds Forge, this time it was a trip up to Leeds for the next round of the North East Region Arena League. After a very tight competition between City of Leeds and City of Sheffield A Team and an impressive performance by the B team in October, there were high expectations of an exciting evening of swimming on the Saturday 24th of November.
