Peter Conman (previous coach at the club) Award for the Most Promising Newcomer – This is a coach’s selection based on potential at this early stage.  This swimmer has not been swimming long & already has County times (short course) for 10 year olds for last September and managed to get a County time (long course) for the February Championships in 10/11 age groups. This swimmer has a very bright future ahead of them.  A 37:15 for 50 free at their age is very impressive.

Jamie Baldwin.

Ray Noble Award for the Most Improved – This swimmer has had a very strong year.  They decided themself they wanted to swim in the performance lane and put tremendous effort into achieving her target.  Gaining County times for September (short course) and February (long course) their improvement was way above expectations.  Improving both technically and aerobically to achieve this award.

Lucy Curran.

BAM Champions Trophy – A bi-annual invitation only competition, which is sponsored by the constructors of the Leisure Centre at Bridlington and competed for by 6 teams where Beverley took a resounding win.

Collecting the trophy was  – Ailis Gorry & Jack Baldwin.

Yorkshire Team Selection –   We had a swimmer from the club selected to represent Yorkshire in their County representative squad, Timmy Heng gained this special honour for his outstanding breaststroke.  Currently with a PB of 34.87 he is one of the best swimmers in the region for his age.  A great reward for Timmy for his continued hard work,

County Medalists To be able to medal (As 1st, 2nd or 3rd) at the Counties is very hard.  This year we have 3 swimmers who have do just that.  Oliver Smith took Silver in 100 IM in a time of 1:34:17. To do this in the North East Region (or NER’s) is a step further and an immense feat, Timmy Heng took Silver in 50 Breaststroke in a time of 35:01 & Alex Goldberg took Silver in this years’ Regional Championships for 100 IM in a time of 1:16:18,

Club Records There were a number of Club records broken this year, which represent their achievement & recognition in holding the current Club records – These can now be viewed on our website.

Recognition Award – This next presentation is not for a swimmer, at least not a current swimmer.

This is for recognition of loyal and dedicated services to the Club; Ray Noble has now stepped down as our Head Coach and presently occupies the post of Assistant Head Coach.  He has been instrumental in taking this club to its current pinnacles of performance and has lead the club to its present dominant position, laying these foundations for its success.

Ray has been involved in the club for over 10 years, guiding many children through the club, Bertram his son, still being a swimmer in the squad.  Ray began his swim career as a coach with South Holderness swim club, and finally ending up at Beverley as Head Coach for 6 years.  Ray continues as a valued and experienced member of the coaching team, thank you for all your time and support to our children.

Club Man and Club Woman are awards that recognise the spirit, commitment and desire to improve while displaying respect, good manners and courtesy for all those around them

Club MAN of the Year – This young lad has shown a fantastic attitude towards training and the desire to improve.  Always very polite and well mannered he is a pleasure to coach.  In his short career he has already achieved so much by his dedication and training ethic.  A role model of a successful swimmer of the present and the future.  He will do whatever you ask of him without question or debate.  A real ambassador for the club.  He is great to be in the company of and makes friends easily.

Oliver Smith

Club WOMAN of the Year – This young lady has had a real desire to improve and be successful. Not wanting to just go through the motions she has set out to gain the recognition and reward by putting a serious amount of hard work into all aspects of her training.  A very polite girl that listens to instructions well and tries hard to improve technique.   She has developed a strong aggression to her swimming while still being the same approachable person she always was.  A great example of what dedication to the task can do.

– Thea Clark

OK so we are now at the end of our presentations with the exception of our Top Boy & Top Girl awards, the premium club awards.

These awards are based across all age groups of the club and scored across all swim strokes, which means that your performance across ALL these disciplines is what is important, , You need to be very fast in stroke and distance gaining the top points in each event where possible.  This allows for the consistency and an overall demonstration of excellence.

Scored in 16 race categories, with 25 points for the top spot, down to 1 point for the 10th spot, at the end of the 12-month period – rather like the F1 sport scoring.

These are truly swimmers of exceptional quality, speed and consistency.

 TOP Girl award: – Fleur Dudicourt Smith

 TOP Boy award: – Daniel Curran
