Everyone Active first Junior Network gala- 20th September This was the first time this gala had taken place and had 23 of our young swimmers aged 9 some 8 to 12 years. Most of the events were relays which gave the swimmers opportunity to raise the team spirit. Some have never taken part in this type of event before. Although we came last the team spirit and experience for them was great. City of Plymouth Competition — October This gala took place once again in October and 10 swimmers took part.
This year it moved venue to The China Fleet Club in Saltash, with pizza and chips being the chosen meal. Each session from 9am till 12 noon had various stations for the swimmers to take part in from waterpolo, chair relay to pulling team members in a life ring and collecting floaters and sinkers. One of these floaters accidentally set off one of the fire alarms and for a while everyone had to evacuate the building.

Kate Veale Annual Report President Roger Downing What a great year for sport this has been and especially for our part of the world. Gold medal winner Ruta and her Plymouth Leander Coaches, Tom Daley and his Plymouth diving coaches, to mention a few and not forgetting all our other competitors and support staff, and volunteers who made London including the Paralympics, the best.
A group of individuals getting to the highest levels by dedication, commitment, attitude and skill. A great example to us all but especially to our younger developing swimmers.
I mentioned dedication and commitment and would like to personally thank all those committee members and volunteers who have helped to steer Devon County Swimming Association to a very successful year. Without your dedication and commitment hundreds of young sports people would have lost the opportunity to compete, train and excel in their chosen discipline. I know I am talking to the committed but please try and get some more volunteers to help both your clubs and the county.
Too much is done by too few and if we could just get some more people to come out of the shadows so much more could be done for our sport. I have had to deal with issues that are not presenting our sports, both swimming and water polo in the best light.Laura Stephens - Plymouth Leander (High Performance)
This has to change especially aggressive conduct to our officials. These issues are just a distraction and I would say to all clubs and officials put your name forward to help to improve our County. It has been a pleasure to take it through the last 12 months.
Mention the word change and lots of people worry. A change brought in this year was to our website and I would like to say a special thank you to Jane who ran our site for quite some time and to Richard Davies who has relaunched our site and made it into the best county website. Bill Baker retires from poolside Bill Baker, Devon County Past President has retired from the poolside after many years as a water polo referee.
Bills significant contribution to the County on many levels was acknowledged with a presentation at the recent AGM. He was thanked on behalf of the County by incoming County President Mr Phil Whiting who spoke for us all in wishing Bill a well deserved retirement. We will have marshals both on the riverbanks and in the water, so every safety aspect has been thought about.
