Newham & UEL Swimming Club (NUEL) has today entered into a partnership with Swim England to be the business partner to deliver a coaching programme for the London Aquatics Centre.

NUEL will remain in its current form, with a pre-planned squad restructure in October, and swimmers who formed part of the LACPP will remain in their current squads based at the LAC with their existing fee structure.

All swimmers who are sole members of LACPP will be required to dual register with NUEL and attend competitions as per the Head Coach annual plan under the NUEL banner. LACPP will cease to exist from 31/12/17 and its members will need to register with Swim England under NUEL effective from 01/01/18.

Our Head Coach, Holly, will be overseeing the complete programme and will remain coaching the performance squads for NUEL as well as providing coaching for the performance squads based at the LAC.

We are in the process of launching a new website that will encompass both entities and will provide parents, swimmers and coaches an integrated swim management system that will improve communication, gala entry and swimmer information. There will be a signpost to the new site from the NUEL existing site, however this will be very basic as it is under development. As such, things such as gala entry will remain using Google forms until the project is complete.

Our anticipated GO LIVE for the new site will be 1st October 2017, which will be in line with the NUEL squad restructure, which will be communicated in mid-September.

This partnership will enable our club to be an integral part of developing swimming in East London and is testament to our coaches, governance, volunteers, parental support and swimmers improved performances over the last couple of years and we should be extremely proud in being the chosen partner by the Governing Bodies.
