Officials and Coaches needed for the National Intercounty Championship

          The County is asking Devon clubs for nominations of qualified coaches who are prepared to travel with the Devon Team to the National Intercounty Championship, to be held on 6 October at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.


Clubs are invited to put forward nominations to the County Secretary Karen Adams by the closing date Friday 23rd August. 


Please include name of coach & club, plus qualifications held.


Devon County also need to provide two qualified officials for this event, so we are looking for volunteers  to travel with the team over that weekend.

If interested please contact Sue Haigh.

2019  DEVON COUNTY MASTERS MEET 
 
The first Open Devon County Masters meet was held at Plymouth Life Centre on 30th  June.
 
Entries were more than double the previous year and there was some excellent swimming on show which certainly more than justified the Devon County Swimming Committee’s decision to make this an open event. 
 
Graham Milne( 65-69) of Truro set a new British record (subject to ratification ) in the 100m fly with a time of 1:09.09  with Allie Price (50-54) of Cardiff Masters setting two new Welsh records in  the 400m freestyle 05:11.58 and the 100m Individual Medley 1:12.54
 
Congratulations to all those who set Regional records; a special mention goes to Anne Humphis from Barnstable who posted South West Regional records in every one  of her events.
 
Grateful thanks go to all the officials and everyone who helped in the setting up and smooth running of this event.
