Thank you to everyone who attended the Parents’ Evening last night. As you all know we really need help from as many parents as possible with the running of the club and ALL help that we get is greatly appreciated.
To make events accredited (both in-house and at competitions) they must have all the necessary officials from timekeepers to referees. We are planning to run an in-house timekeepers course where you will be told the duties of a timekeeper, get shown how to record swimmers’ times, how to average and what to look for prior to pressing the start and stop button. The course lasts a couple of hours and will run on a normal swimming training night. Once complete you will be registered with SASA and be allowed to participate at competitions. Keith Watchorn is organising a timekeepers course so if you are interested please let him know or alternatively email email@example.com.
When we attend competitions we need parents to help our coaches poolside with organising the swimmers and making sure they are ready for their swims, with this help it means the coaches can concentrate on getting the best out of all the swimmers. Please speak to Keith Watchorn or Mark McKinney if this is something you would be interested in or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help our Meet Secretary pass on information about competitions and generally liaise with swimmers each squad needs a parent to volunteer as Squad Manager. Please speak to Keith Watchorn or Mark McKinney if this is something you would be interested in or alternatively email email@example.com.
We are looking for a number of keen and enthusiastic volunteers to help create a fundraising team. Fundraising is an essential part of any club to ensure enough funds are raised to promote growth, provide resources and equipment and to help finance club extra activities. We are also open to any suggestions you may have with regard to fundraising. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something you would be interested in.
