More good news for Morpeth ASC!
Morpeth ASC Junior League Team have been nominated for the Dalton Hutchinson Trophy (Under 13 Team Award) at the Morpeth Sports Awards! This is for the team performances over the last 12 months including winning Division 3 last season (and 5/6 available trophies), gaining promotion to Division 2 and recently winning our first event in Division 2!
We only have 5 tickets available for the presentation evening at the moment (but are seeking more). The presentation will take place on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 at 7:30pm (Morpeth Rugby Club). Can I ask you send your child's name to firstname.lastname@example.org if they wish to be entered into the random name draw to decide who is going to go on behalf of the team.
Congratulations to Kate Kennedy who has been nominated for an individual award as well for her recent performance over the last 12 months!

Kit Bags at the Pool
Please see below message from Kay who has with others worked hard to tidy up the Kit bag area over half term.
"I have marked up the kit bag pegs into squads please use the correct peg when returning your kit. Please do not return your kit if it is not marked up with your name in all equipment
I will be carrying out periodic checks on the kit and any on the wrong pegs or not named will be returned to cupboard and you will not be allowed to use the facility and will need to take your kit bag home after each session
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any questions"
Thanks Kay Howe
Important Information - Drinks at Training
A quick reminder that all swimmers should be bringing a Water Bottle to ALL training sessions. Concern has been raised about the number of children turning up to training working hard sometimes for over a hour without a drink! Swimmers should attend with at least 750ml to 1L of fluid (water or dilute juice) for each hour of training. Swimmers in Performance and Junior Performance may need two bottles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
Swimmers who attend training without a sufficient amount to drink will not be allowed to swim.
