Biddulph Swimming Club Stoke on Trent
Recently three of our senior swimmers have completed 10years membership at the Club - The Twins Jordan Oliver &Carrie Oliver plus Natasha Capes. This is a great achievement and to recognise this a presentation was made recently at Biddulph Leisure Centre to the girls. They have been great characters over the years and it has been a pleasure watching their development not only as swimmers but as young people. I cannot recall any other swimmers since I started coaching doing over Ten years at one club - Well done Girls !!!! It is interesting to read their profiles and how they think swimming has helped them.
We have both been active members of BASC for over 10 years now. We joined the club when were 6 and 7 years old and we reach the ripe old age of 18 years old in December this year. We both continue to attend three training sessions per week. During our 10 years at BASC we have both competed at a high level, swimming regularly in the county and other open championships, we both represented our club in the county relay and represented our school in the GB Schools swimming championships and were also regularly selected by Peter for our local league galas, Crusaders and Arenas league. Swimming has not only kept us both fit and healthy over the years but has given us so much more. It has taught us many life skills, discipline, drive, competitiveness and sportsmanship together with time management, which have all helped us to achieve other accomplishments, not least, our being two thirds of the runner up team in the all England Schools Biathlon Championships in 2012. We also gained a collective 20 high grade GCSE’s last year. We now attend Sir John Dean’s Sixth Form College in Northwich, where we are studying hard for our A-levels, with a target for University entry next year.
I joined the club when I was 6 and competed in my first club championships at 7 winning the Breaststroke and Butterfly races. I continued to train hard and compete regularly. I also enjoy Open Water Swimming and am a member of Newcastle Tri Club. I have been concentrating on my coaching and teaching qualifications and at the moment I work part time at the leisure centre as a swimming teacher and coach at the club on a Thursday and Sunday evening. I attend Congleton High School sixth form and I am working hard to complete A levels in Photography, Art and Child Education. Now that I have recovered from injury my goal is to return to training and competing
