Blog 2020 - 110: Swimzi Shop Window Now Open

Long Eaton SC Club
Shop Now Open! 

Great news, the Long Eaton SC shop is now open for you to place your club kit order!

>>> <<<

You will have until Midnight on Sunday 20th September 2020 to order your kit before the shop is closedPlease Note: Your order will not go into production until the shop is closed. 

Orders placed after this time may delay the whole kit order and therefore will not be accepted. So to avoid disappointment, please place your order now:

Delivery is expected before Christmas.

By agreement with your Club, all items will be delivered direct to your chosen Shipping Address input at Checkout. Shipping is charged at £3.95 or FREE for orders totalling £75+.
Due to COVID-19 freight charges have increased and as a result, sweatwear products highlighted RED will attract an additional £2.00 delivery surcharge. This will be added to your cart at checkout.

We advise you to check the sizing guide online but If you are still unsure, please email with your measurements and we will try our best to advise. It may also be a good idea to ask other members who already have the kit item you wish to purchase.

If you do miss the deadline, we strongly urge you to add items to your wish list. When you add items to the wish list the club total for that item will be updated. This will trigger a club shop to be opened when sufficient demand dictates for us to do so. It is within your interest to use this feature to make sure you get the products you want!

If you have any other questions or there seems to be a technical issue, please contact


THANK YOU for shopping with us!

Blog 2020-99: Postponement of Italy camp - additional places now available

The Italy camp originally planned for October 2020 has now been postponed to October 2021.  This decision was taken in light of current uncertainty surrounding foreign travel.

All those that were signed up for the 2020 trip should have had an email detailing the implications of the deferral - please contact me if you haven't received this.

Subject to Team Manager : swimmer ratios, there may be the opportunity for more swimmers to join the camp in 2021.  As before, swimmers would need to meet the following criteria:
  • aged 12 at 31 December 2021
  • capable of completing the training programme, ie 2 x 2 hour sessions per day
Dates for the re-scheduled camp would be 22-28 October 2021 (to be confirmed, but definitely within the window of 16-31 October), and cost would be approx £860 per swimmer (based on 2020 costs, before fundraising contributions).

If you would like to be considered for the 2021 camp, or have any queries about the trip, please email me (  This would just be an expression of interest at this stage (not a commitment).
