Cranleigh Amateur Swimming Club – A Busy month!

It’s been a busy month for CASC with the Dorking meet and 2 sets of Club Champs. Our Head Coach’s main aim at this point in the year is to get as many swimmers with qualifying times for the Surrey County Champs as possible. And the swimmers have not disappointed him. The Dorking Meet, which is an all day affair at Dorking Leisure Centre, is a very friendly though competitive event. CASC had a great turnout and some superb results. 17 more qualifying times brought our tally up to 89 qualifying events.

Our club champs run during our own swim sessions and are like a time trial but with a few more white clad officials with stop watches, a timing board and a horn to start the races. These events bring out such a great spirit in the club as the swimmers cheer each other along. Although they are essentially racing each other, they are all looking to improve their own personal best times. It’s fabulous to see the swimmers supporting each other with consideration and how the coaches motivate every last swimmer to be the best they can be.

Last month we looked at parental support to say a big thank you. This month I’d like to give a big shout out to Cranleigh Leisure Centre. Sean and his team are amazing and incredibly supportive and helpful at all times even when we have lots of screams of excitement. I wonder if the lifeguards may sometimes secretly fancy joining in with our fun!! Thank you all for everything.

If you are interested in joining Cranleigh ASC, please come down and see us on a Sunday evening at Cranleigh Leisure Centre from 4.30pm onwards or visit our website We offer two free taster trial sessions, for children wishing to see if they enjoy it.
