Friday 13th January 2017

This years Club review and celebration evening continues on the success of 2015. We would like to see all the clubs membership, (swimmers and parents), from all of club groups attend.

There are few opportunities to meet and this is a time for the swimmers to meet each other without their hats on! Listen to the plans for this season, and raise a little money for the club. So why not shed the post Christmas blues and make this a "must" attend?

Please see your squad rep for tickets & details on this event. Numbers are limited and there can be no ticket sales on the night.

Please purchase now as the food needs to be ordered!


Winter 2016


All timetable variations will be advised by your squad rep / social media.


Winter training should include the use of cold weather outer garments (coats, hats and scarves) with appropriate footwear.

These winter months are named the "ber" months for a reason!

The training timetable variations can be found on the clubs Google diary and which is also available to find on the training groups tab.

Swimmer safeguarding and changing room etiquette.

Please download the following TDS notice regarding the club's stance on changing room etiquette and swimmer safety. This notice comes in to effect immediately and can be downloaded here.

The ASA lead the way in childhood protection and have developed the Wavepower Policy and Procedures manual to help all involved in swimming. Further information on safeguarding swimmers can be found on the ASA website here.

Morning Training.

Please note that morning training is available for selected groups and details can be found from your squad rep.

All swimmers and parents should keep an eye on all club communications (website, email, Facebook / Twitter) in case there are any last minute cancellations. It is very important that you check there is a coach poolside, at the time of the session, before leaving your swimmers. If you are unsure you should consult your squad rep. Many thanks for your attention in this matter.

Please note the information is also available on the clubs Google diary: email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for access. (You will need a gmail account setup for access).A copy of the calendar can be found here.


New One Way Traffic System at Taunton School pools

I write to inform you of some changes that will be taking place over the coming months at Taunton School.

Over the summer the School have taken some advice on the management of traffic on campus.  As a result, the School have developed a plan to introduce a one-way system to the front of the Main Building.  This will involve a modest investment to upgrade the road and also some railings to separate foot from vehicle traffic.  We are confident that this new road system will help the flow of traffic and will ensure the safety of our pupils as they move around the site.

The benefits are clear:

  • No large vehicle (lorry, coach or mini-bus) will ever have to reverse when dropping off or picking up pupils.
  • All vehicles driving around the front of school will proceed in a clockwise direction which reduces congestion.
  • Traffic should flow faster at peak times.

How will it work?

  • On entering the campus through the main gate the two-way system will operate as normal until the corner of the dining room (point 13 on the map attached).  From here, the one way system will go clockwise past the Science Block (39), the New Pavillion (32) and the Grounds department (19), before rejoining the main access road.
  • Coaches will pull over to the left of the road by the Old Gym (33) and the passengers will disembark directly into a safe walkway which is physically separated from the road by some railings.
  • For Visitors, Members and Hirers entering the campus through the main gate, the two-way system will operate as normal until the corner of the dining room (13). From here you can continue in front of the Main Building across the front of the main campuse (1), turn left going past the parade ground (36) and continue through to park next to the Durrant Astro Turf (42) or at the back of the School (16). Cars are not permitted to park along the main drive way at anytime as access is required 24/7.

When will it happen? 

The works are being initiated immediately and our intention is to have the project complete and ready for use as soon as possible, ideally before the nights draw in but until we start the work we can’t give an exact timeframe. Signage will be in situ on completion of works for all road users to follow.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask all Hirers to inform all of their clients and session attendees of the changes to the road system to ensure the new system can be implemented successfully.
