DISTRICT TIME TRIAL 2018

posted Jan 31, 2018, 1:32 AM by Web Master

Hi everyone, apologies for the delay in getting race numbers uploaded, we have had all sorts of laptop issues which I hope have been sorted out now, and old and tired laptop a bit like me!!

District time trials are on tomorrow at 7.30am, however given swim club is totally separate from all school events, we unfortunately do not know what the qualifying times are and are not involved in anyway with any of the school swimming events.

Anyway getting up early to try out, we wish you luck, swim your best!!

Cheers
Danni

SWIM CLUB VOLUNTEERS PLEASE!!!

Hi everyone we have now updated the volunteer roster which can be found if you click on BBQ roster to the left of this page.

You will notice we still have a few gaps. We really need volunteers to make the club nights run smoothly, so I encourage you please to volunteer for 1 job per term. 

We also will be asking parents to help with timing the races each week. We have 6 lanes so we need 6 timers every week. Without timers the kids don't get a time. Its great time to socialise but we do also need helpers each week.

Looking forward to our first race night tonight....at last!

Cheers
Danni

Swim Club - Thursday 19th Oct 2017

posted Oct 15, 2017, 12:08 AM by Web Master

Our first "timed" night of the 2017/18 season on this Thursday night from 5pm!!  We will be asking parents to volunteer to help with timing and recording times. We need 8 people each week so please help out whenever you can.

All swimmers will need to get a swim number on their hand before entering the pool. This will be their new number for the season. We will have a list each week so no need to memorise.

All swimmers will compete in three races each week and times will be recorded. Points are awarded for each race completed and bonus points if a swimmer does a PB for that stroke. (The exception being the 4-5yr old assisted swimmers who will complete two strokes each week). 

Top point scorers each week are awarded the "Freddo" prize at the beginning of the next swim meet as encouragement for their improvement.

As always, Sushi and Sausage sizzle available to purchase. Swimmers please bring your own drink bottles.

Lastly if you have not paid your registration fees, please have cash payment for Thursday night, $50 per child for full season, $25 per child for one term.

Look forward to seeing you all Thursday night.

    Gates open at 5pm for a warm up with a 5.30pm start. Sushi and sausages will be available to buy.

     

    Prep and all age group swimmers welcome and can be assisted by older swimmers if necessary. Registration to attend the remainder of the season (term 1 only) cost $25 per child - cash only.

     

    In order to make this work we need volunteers.  The existing President and Treasurer will step down after this term.  An outline of the roles and brief description of what's involved follows:

     

    President:  Oversee operation of the Swim Club, assist Secretary with prep for Trophy Night.

     

    Treasure/Secretary:  Manage finances, oversee admin duties including organisation of Trophy Presentation night.

    Data Entry Operator:  enter race results into the database each week. This can be done from home post event.  Generally takes about 1 hour to complete.  Just needs to be finalised by the following week.

     

    Marshalls:  Parents to marshal kids into age groups on the night and assist Mat.

     

    BBQ food pickup:  we need someone to pick up the snags, bread, sauces each week and deliver to the pool by 5pm.
