Maxwell Club Records
The attached records have been updated to take account of The first two weekends of the 2014 County Championships. These include four new Age Group Relay records. Well done to these teams and all the individuals concerned. Those broken and new to this edition are highlighted in red. Other records broken this season in blue, so you will see that for any event, multiple entries could appear if the record has been broken more than once this season.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of these it cannot be guaranteed and I would be pleased to address any queries that may arise in this regard. The records are up to date as far as I am aware, but if you know different I can update them following the receipt of a "claim" on a record, which should be sent to me, specifying the details of the event concerned, the date it was achieved and the new record time. I shall verify any claims received and update the Club Records accordingly.
To be sure of inclusion all records need to be "claimed". My intention is that the next update will follow Counties, so please get any claims to me as soon as you can after the conclusion of these Championships.
The records are for individual age groups from 8 year olds up to an Open category, for both short course and long course times. They have been compiled primarily with reference to the ASA rankings which date from 1997, but also include some older times for the Open age category where these had already been recorded by the Club.

Guidance for Supervision and Evacuation Policy
Please see the club's new Guidance for Supervision and Evacuation Policy - we are working towards achieving this as best practice and suggest parents make themselves aware of it and help us to reinforce this with the swimmers for their own safety. Link here
YOU can raise money for Maxwell by simply changing your buying habits. We are busy setting up an online swimshop. There will be a transition period while that is fully launched. In the meantime, when you buy anything from Proswimear, using this link, not only will you get a 10% discount but the Club will get paid a bonus. But - we will be clearing out our stock so while we are in transition were going to ask you to help us by checking if we might have it first. Thanks for understanding while we get it running.
