Covid Ready and Raring to Go!!

During the last few months, we’ve been beavering away behind the scenes preparing our return to our beautiful local pool.
We are thrilled to announce we will be back from week commencing 14th September, and that includes all lesson providers, community swimming sessions, and our Mitres and Lifesaving Clubs! It’s been a lot of work to ensure we can return as safely as possible, but we’re confident that with the procedures in place we’re able to do so.
Things will be a little different to what you’re used to, so please keep your eye on our website and Facebook page for full details.
In the meantime, we’re pleased to announce that our community swim memberships for 2020/2021 are now LIVE! We’ve worked hard to keep the cost for this year the same, and you can download the new membership application form here
Take care everyone and stay safe, we look forward to welcoming you back soon! 🙂

Vicki Mazzara, our new Swimming Coach for Thursday evening and Monday’s Masters sessions.

Here at Mitres Swim Club we are very excited to welcome Vicky Mazzara as our new addition to our coaching team.

 Vicky started swimming at the age of six and soon afterwards joined her first swimming club, ‘Hamble Jets’. Progressing in the club and joining in novice galas, Vicky grew as a swimmer and her love and passion for the sport began. Her next venture was into the world of competitive swimming where her highlights were swimming at national and regional levels for her clubs.

Vicky’s professional swimming career saw her start out as a lifeguard in local pools, during which she studied hard to gain experience and her qualifications and became a much respected swimming teacher and coach. Vicky believes it’s never too late or too early to start swimming; during the day you can find her teaching babies to swim, whilst in the evening teaching and coaching young and mature swimmers.

Vicky has lots of proud achievements through her swimming career, from winning medals, and even competing in open water. One of her greatest is swimming the Solent from Gosport to Ryde in aid of a charity on the Isle of Wight.

Vicki is now ready and delighted to take on her next challenge in coaching Mitres and has already started to plan how she will move the club forward over the next year in tandem with Nicki our Tuesday session coach.

 Please join us in offering her a very warm Bishop’s Waltham welcome 🙂
