The AGM and Club Awards evening was held at Marshalswick Community Centre this year.
While the kids were eager to tuck into the delicious buffet supplied by the parents, Fiona Durbin explained how to order new kit from the swimzi website.
Paul Durbin, the Race Director, gave a brief summary of the 2017 season, including the multiple club events that had been held and the East Region events.
With the help of the outgoing girl’s captain, Naomi Holt, the following awards were presented:
2018 Club Captain – Jess Thorn
Triathlete of the Year – Antonia Jubb for her excellent East Region campaign coming 1st in the League and also winning TriStar 2 Inter Regional Championship
This year we continued to present some additional awards to recognise the kids’ achievements and dedication to the club:
Training – Florence Crowley and Matthew Stephens for their regular attendance and commitment at the coaching sessions which has resulted in marked improvements in their racing results
Racing – for their successes and consistent finishes in the East Region League races throughout the season – Jess, Christy, Callum, Jaime and Eva
Newcomers – Hugo Crowley and Aston Koval
Club Contribution – Naomi Holt and Sean McAcree
After the awards, it was time for the raffle with numerous prizes on offer. The highlight was seeing Tom Jarman in a size 7-8 year old club t-shirt!
While the parents attended the AGM, the kids were well entertained by the coaching team. Richard Gray gave a full account of the year’s activities with a call for further parental help in the running of the club. Stephen Crowley presented the club’s financial position.
A huge thank you was given to Sean McAcree for his role as Head Coach. Minutes of the meeting can be read here: TFJ AGM (1)
