Blog 2021: Erewash Triathlon - HELP needed

Once again we will be giving our support to the Erewash Traithlon on Sunday August 10th at West Park. We have always managed to provide volunteers to help on the day with the swimming discipline by providing the Starters and lane stewards. This is an early start 7.15am (but you will get a bacon cob and drinks).
Lane Stewards can give assistance to the swimmers by counting their laps for them and with words of encouragment (for many it will be their first Triathlon). The swimming is usually completed by 11.30am, just in time to see most of the competitors crossing the finishing line.
12 volunteers would be good - so check your diary and come to West Park and help promote Long Eaton Swimming Club.
Please contact Sue & Keith ASAP click here

Blog 2020: Miami update

we are looking at the possibility of moving the camp a week later so people have an easier time getting off school. We will only do this if the price isnt affected too much. So the dates will either be January 26th till 6th February or 2nd February till 13th February. Deposits of £200 need to be posted in the box by 31st August 2014. Hopefully with more campers and a bit more fund raising we can keep the price well below the estimated £1000.

Blog 2019: Kevs England debut

Long Eaton with only 17 swimmers at the meet came 5th club with 12 golds 8 silvers and 9 bronze medals along with a host of top six finishes (see our twitter feed for tweets on the medalist @LESCnews) for full results click on this link   What was very pleasing other than the skill levels was the behaviour and professionalism of our swimmers, setting an example for any club around.The junior and age group swimmers learnt a lot of valuable lessons throughout the meet putting them in good stead for the future. #orangeandproud
