New Head Coach Appointed
Dear Maxwell Member
I am very excited to be able to tell you our news.
After a very thorough interview process starting back in May, involving over 30 very high class applicants, we are delighted to announce that we have appointed Lisa Atkinson to be our new Head Coach.
Lisa will be joining us from her current club, Satellites of Macclesfield where as head coach she has developed outstanding swimming programmes all the way through the club up to National medal winners, in both the able bodied and disability branches of our sport. Lisa’s contribution to her club and swimmers has been recognized when earlier this year she won the coveted Coach of the Year, Awarded for the Cheshire East Region. Just last week Lisa went on to win Coach of the Year for the whole of Cheshire!
Lisa’s record as a swim coach has been noticed by the Great Britain Swimming team where she has been invited to attend overseas talent camps for elite GB swimmers and work alongside GB level coaches including Fred Furniss. With a first class honours degree in Sports Science and an MSc in Exercise and Sports Science, Lisa brings a wealth of scientific knowledge with her to support her practical hands on experience of developing great swimmers, mentoring and supporting coaches and building and developing swimming clubs.
Lisa commented “I am very excited to be joining the Maxwell Swim Club and work with some fantastic swimmers and coaches. I look forward to building upon Maxwell’s proud history and further developing the clubs reputation as a competitive swimming club.”
The Maxwell committee will be organizing opportunities for you all to meet Lisa and we are delighted that Lisa will be joining our club ready for the new season at the beginning of September.

Maxwell Club Records
The attached records have been updated to take account of all meets over the last three months. Those broken and new to this edition are highlighted in red. Other records broken this season in blue, so you will see that for any event, multiple entries could appear if the record has been broken more than once this season.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of these it cannot be guaranteed and I would be pleased to address any queries that may arise in this regard. The records are up to date as far as I am aware, but if you know different I can update them following the receipt of a "claim" on a record, which should be sent to me, specifying the details of the event concerned, the date it was achieved and the new record time. I shall verify any claims received and update the Club Records accordingly.
To be sure of inclusion all records need to be "claimed".
The records are for individual age groups from 8 year olds up to an Open category, for both short course and long course times. They have been compiled primarily with reference to the ASA rankings which date from 1997, but also include some older times for the Open age category where these had already been recorded by the Club.

Guidance for Supervision and Evacuation Policy
Please see the club's new Guidance for Supervision and Evacuation Policy - we are working towards achieving this as best practice and suggest parents make themselves aware of it and help us to reinforce this with the swimmers for their own safety. Link here
YOU can raise money for Maxwell by simply changing your buying habits. We are busy setting up an online swimshop. There will be a transition period while that is fully launched. In the meantime, when you buy anything from Proswimear, using this link, not only will you get a 10% discount but the Club will get paid a bonus. But - we will be clearing out our stock so while we are in transition were going to ask you to help us by checking if we might have it first. Thanks for understanding while we get it running.
