Team Manager Course

Hi All,

We still have a few places on the Team Manager Course this Wednesday evening. This is our second course run by Robert Hammond, following a very successful and fun coaching assistant course (though you do not need to be a coaching assistant to sign up for this course!).

This course allows you to help on poolside at local competitions. You can help by motivating and encouraging swimmers on the day, and importantly making sure that swimmers arrive in plenty of time for their swims! You’ll be a point of contact for parents too. It’s a great way to get to know the kids and learn more about swimming (and its many rules!!).

As with the coaching assistant course, we don’t expect you to be available all the time.  One or two sessions at a couple of competitions would be great. The more Team Managers we have the more we are all able to learn and share the volunteering.

These are the details of the course:

Wednesday 1st June

Conference Room, 1st Floor Citadel, opposite the lift

6pm – 10pm

 

As you’ll be responsible for children / young people, a PVG is needed. So once you’ve completed the course we’ll arrange for one of our CPO’s to get in touch about how to go about this.

Bring snacks, drinks, pen and paper

Email me on jenb.sast@gmail.com to book a space!

Thanks,

Jennifer

 

 

 

Change of Date: Jewels in the Pool

Parents and Swimmers

Many apologies that we have to change the date of the Jewels in the Pool Meet tomorrow at such short notice.

Unforunately we have been informed this afternoon that there is a double booking for tomorrow. Dive Scotland are hosting a grand prix style meet this Saturday and for Health and Safety reasons we are not able to run the Jewels in the Pool meet at the same time.

The new date for the Jewels in the Pool competition will be Sunday 5th June. 1pm as before. 

Our sincere apologies for this inconvenience.

Training will be on at the usual time tomorrow morning!

Please let others know, in case they do not check posts in time.

Thank you.
