Joe has sent out an email about Anaconda swimming restarting today. See below: 'We are keeping the same schedule until the 1st October where we will be sharing a new structure and schedule in line with our Director of Swimming. This gives every swimmer an opportunity to show their coaches which squads they should be put in through their hard work, attendance and attitude. I look forward to seeing all the swimmers at the pool in the near future.' Regards, Joe Grubb

Shout out to Anaconda Team Captains Six team captains have done a fabulous job, from assigning swimmers to individual and relay races to encouraging and cheering the youngest of swimmers to swim their fastest.

Note email from our Chair Jonny: Cally pool has approached us and politely asked that Anaconda parents & carers do not enter the changing rooms and pool area with outdoor shoes on. They have ceased to provide the blue plastic overshoes and hence this request, which is also noted on the signs in the lobby and the changing rooms. They are comfortable if we bring clean slides/flip flops and put them on before entering these areas which seems like a pretty good compromise. Cally Pool, and by extension Islington Leisure/Council,...
