Our Gala Swimming Team
Westbury on Trym CofE Academy has a long standing history of competitive swimming. Our team is managed by Emma Bourne and Helen Crowther. Both are parents at the school.
Training takes place at 0815 on Thursday mornings at Henbury Swimming Pool.
We presently take part in the Percy Smith Swimming Galas, Bristol Schools and the English Relay Championships at Millfield. We also have regular friendly galas against Badminton School.
All of our swimmers are taking part in regular swimming activities elsewhere and many of our children swim at club level.
Training lasts 45 minutes, here we teach the children how to swim at a competitive level under the ASA rules. Selection for galas is made from our 30 strong squad.
We have the heats of the Bristol schools on Tuesday 8th March with the finals on Saturday 23rd April.
