European Swimming Championships Glasgow 2018 – Volunteer Opportunity

Posted

All,

The Glasgow 2018 Swimming European Championships are coming Tollcross International Swimming Centre between the 3rd & 9th of August!

As such, the Aquatics Competition Team are looking to recruit teams of 11 members, aged between 14-18 year olds from local Scottish Swimming Clubs to become “Athlete Kit Carriers”. This role involves;

  • Retrieving Athletes kit boxes from the pool deck during each race.
  • Returning them to the kit collection area.
  • Keeping it safe until the Athletes are ready to collect it after their race.
  • Member(s) of the team will also be responsible for collecting Athletes accreditation from the final call room.

Who is eligible?

  • Aged between 14 – 18 years old (as of January 1st, 2018).

When will you be required to volunteer?

  • Friday 3rd August – Thursday 9th August.
  • Morning or Evening session (TBC closer to time)
  • Training day at Tollcross (TBC closer to the time)

Why should I put my name forward?

  • Unique voluntary experience that will stand out on a CV (or further education application).
  • Amongst a handful of people allowed access to the pool deck
  • Up close and personal with the best swimmers in the world
  • All team members will be given a uniform unique to the event
  • Interact with new people your age (who knows you might make a friend or two!)
  • Chance to be on TV!

Scotia ASC would LOVE to be able to submit #teamgreen for this event, however we need 11 interested individuals, so please consider applying. I personally undertook this role during the 2014 Commonwealth Games and it has been one of proudest, most enjoyable experiences of my life. I made new friends, worked in a team environment and got to meet a variety of famous swimming faces.

If you could like to be part of this amazing opportunity to volunteer, let me know by no later than Wednesday 10th Febuary (by email or in person). This will give me time to fill out the official team application form for Scotia A.S.C.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,

Lindsay Hunter.

P.S. If we have swimmers interested, however not quite 11, I will speak to M&B and Kirkintilloch Swimming Clubs to see if we can band together and submit a team.

MASTERS Carlisle Aquatics Masters Swim Meet 2018 – Event Report

Posted

The Scotia Masters team travelled to Carlisle at the weekend to compete in the first event of the Year. Coach Craig Drummond has had the squad in the water over the holiday period for some extra curricular training to keep up fitness, so hopes were high for a good performance. And the Team didn’t disappoint their Coach. With a medal haul of 39 and then winning the Team event, Scotia Masters proved their worth.

Laura Shields lead the medal table with 10 from 10 events. Gold 7. Silver 3. Kristin Geppert with 9 Golds and Keith Watchorn with 2 Gold and 7 Silver were next. Lynn Campbell won 7 medals, comprising 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze. Newcomer Marc Mills who after a Rugby career that involved injuries including a broken neck and pending hip replacement, had gotten back into training 2 days after Christmas. Helping with managing the team on the poolside, Marc also won 1 Silver and 3 Bronze.

Kristin Geppert had the best improved performance with a total of 4 personal Best times. The biggest being 3.7s off her 100m Breaststroke. Lynn Campbell brought home the most improved time by knocking 12 seconds off her 400m Individual Medley time. Keith Watchorn competed in his first 400m Individual Medley which was a great achievement and has now set a new Personal Best.

So with such a great Team Performance, the amount of points awarded to the Scotia team saw them winning the event by 1 point.

The results are a good reflection of the teams commitment to training but mostly to Coach Craig Drummonds excellent coaching skills.

The team next compete on 27th January in Aberdeen.

A message from our Club Captain Sarah Gill

I want to take some time to say a big thank you to our amazing coaches for all their hard work and commitment this year in helping shape us into the swimmers we are today. Without you, we wouldn’t be the team we are today.
Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Your swimmers

Thanks
