Volunteering Opportunities

Posted

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped on poolside and behind the scenes at the time trial to enable Scotia’s swimmers to get updated times for their meet entries after the Summer.  A very special thanks to our energetic ‘runner’ for collecting all the time sheets.   

Scotia is soon offering a time-keeping course so please watch this space for details.  

Scotia are also running their own meet in November and  will be needing many more volunteers to help this to run smoothly.  Please see this message from our club secretary about how to volunteer:

Hi All

As you know Scotia are holding their very own Development Meet on the 24th of November 2019.

First of all I would like to say a HUGE thank you to the parents that gave their time to come to the meeting on Monday night.  It was really well attended.

On the portal under “Volunteering” you will be able to put your name next to a job that needs doing on the day.  This event needs the support of the parents and swimmers to make it a success.

There are many varied duties for all skill sets so give the portal a visit and see what duties need doing.

Any queries please email me on the email address below.

Thanks in advance

Time Trial and Venue Change on June 10th

Posted

On Monday the 10th June, there is a time trial for all swimmers in DOLPHINS, SWORDFISH & SHARKS at the Leisuredrome. This is to update times in preparation for competitions after the summer. It also allows the club another chance to practice running a competition in the lead up to Scotia’s meet in November. 

A SQUAD ONLY– Training has been moved to Springburn Leisure Centre 19:00 – 21:00 on the 10th of June. Should any swimmer from this squad wish to swim in the time trial for a specific event(s), please discuss this with Lindsay at Wednesdays training session.  

SWIMMERS are expected to arrive on poolside for 18:30 on the 10th of June for a warm up and are expected to stay until their events are completed (roughly 20:45/21:00)

As always, events like these do not run by themselves. If you are available to help make the evening run smoothly by timekeeping, marshalling swimmers or you are willing to help in any capacity, please let a committee member know or email  secretary@scotiaasc.co.uk
