Club Kit

Following much debate over the supplier of our club kit, we have made the decision to move supplier.  This is now up and running via a company called LISS Sport.

All club kit can be ordered online, we won’t be holding any stock as a club.  The link can be found on our club website.  

Please make sure you select speed rather than synchro as the logo’s are different.

We have the following items available to order :

                Black hoodie

                Green Pool side t-shirt – you can personalise this on the back with a name

(please keep it clean !!)

                Black shorts

We will also be looking at additional pieces of club kit, so if there is something you would like us to consider, please let us know.  If we feel there will be enough interest then we will see if we can stock.  We have already been looking at adding towels into the kit

When you are selected to represent the club you are required as a minimum to have a green poolside t-shirt.  If you have the old style, there is no need to purchase new kit until it is time to replace.  But remember, club kit makes a great Christmas present !!

We have some sample pieces that you can look at for sizes but as a general rule – they are pretty true to normal shop sizes

Coventry Open Meet 9 and 10th July

Gone are the days when Rugby swimmers shied away from swimming in a long course event, as Rugby took a team of over 30 swimmers to Coventry for the end of season Open meet. This was on the friendly end of the scale with the Coventry's big guns, not needing long course times, as they swim here all the time, not competing. Rugby on the other hand swim long course only a few times a year, and the acclimatisation is vital for the younger swimmers (and parents), to the hugely different 50m pool. The all-time long course rankings now have many, many new names, and times all from this weekend, some ranking at the very top of all time for RSC. As always I will fail to make a long list of names a places interesting, but it is the thought that counts.

Stars of the weekend for Rugby were Ladies club captain Megan Williams, who had a proverbial field day, where she won Golds in 100m Fly, 100m free, 200m fly, 200m free, 50m free, and  2nd in 50m fly, Megan also won Overall Age Group Trophy. Matched by Max Taylor, Golds in the 100 free, 50 fly, 50 back, 200 IM, 50 breast, Silver: 200 free, 50 free and Bronze: 400m free, Max is checking on the top swimmer award, as the system suggested he came top. Anna Farrow won the Gold in 50m butterfly - 11 yr old girls, Annabel Crees won a silver in the 9 years girls 50m freestyle, William stamp got a silver in 50 breaststroke, Max Green,1st - 50 fly (gold), 2nd - 50 free (silver),3rd - 100 free (bronze), Ella won a bronze in the 10year 200BR.

The Carey brothers were on form again, Jack, having just moved up in the 15 and over, with the “big boys” including a returning GB international form Coventry was, 3rd in 100 free, 3rd in 200 free, 3rd in 100 fly and 3rd in 50 fly. Dan was, 1st in 100 free, 3rd in 50 fly and 2nd in 200 free. Erin Lloyd, Gold 10 year 50m freestyle, Gold 10 year 100m backstroke, Silver 10 year 400m freestyle, Lana Reese Wilson-Shrubb, 12 year girls age group,  won gold in 50 back  not only winning 1st place in this event but being placed 3rd overall throughout all the age groups massive achievement with a time of 36:03, Silver in the 50 free 32:83, Silver in the 100m back 1:19.22, the O’Brien sisters also won a variety of medals, Libby was successful in the 9yrs age group with, 50m Backstroke, Silver, 50m Butterfly, Silver, 50m Freestyle, Bronze, and Charlotte was successful in the 12yrs age group with, 200m Backstroke, Silver, 50m Freestyle, Bronze. Tom Tyler took a 3rd place 400 FS, just missing a magical barrier by a finger nail, in a time of 6:00.07. Kieran Jarvis won 3 silver medals in 9 years, 200 free, 50 back 50 free. Luke Ansp0kes, Silver x2  in 13 yrs 100m free & 50 fly.

Continuing on the family these, Ben and Emma Jones also has successes, Ben Jones, Bronze - 100m BR, Silver - 200m BR, Bronze - 400m FR and Emma, Silver - 50m BR, from Emma who just qualifies at 9, to the upper age group, Abbie Dolly had a great weekend, Abbie won Gold - 400m IM, Gold - 50m Fly, Bronze - 100m Fly. So too did Luie Gilroy who  won 3 x Golds in the 200m FS, 200Br and 200Back (He really likes 200m!). And somewhere in the middle, Mackenzie Patchett –Smyth, won silver in the 400m free for 12s.

So a great weekend for all, if a little long, with the Mercian League final Saturday evening, for which there will be a separate report


Well done to all our competitors at todays Midland championships (East and West) that was held at Bosworth Water.

First up was Abbie in a 5K (Yes 5 x 1K laps) in a rather chilly 16.8 degrees. With no wetsuits.

Next was Rhys, Maddie and Kelly in the 3K event. They all went off in a splash of white water for the first buoy. Then things settled down with our swimmers coming in the following order. Rhys 3rd in U16 in time of 34.05 (Bronze Medal). Kelly in a time of 34.40 which was the gold in her age group. Then Maddie who was 5th U16 home but second West Mids swimmer in a time of 36.17. This means all are eligible for Nationals at Rotheram in a couple of weeks time.

Finally Rachel set off with a flurry of younger women swimmers. Again a strong swim saw her come home in a 20.02 for 1.5K and Gold for age group and over 19s.


Well done to all in representing the club so well. Ably supported by the coaching advise of Tony on the day.

Photos Needed

Well we're up and running but we could do with some good RSC swimming photos.

I know we all love him but Ross is not the only swimmer we have so we need some pictures new and old if we can.

Competition submissions by end of May please so we can really make full use of this new facility. We will think of a good prize and award a winner after that date.
