Term 2 2018

Usually, numbers attending club during the winter terms are lower than in the warmer terms, we want to ask you to come to as many nights as you can, as we pay for lane usage, and it doesn’t look good if we have empty lanes.
All our coaches are volunteers and have been trained.  They all do a great job with your children.  If you would like to help with coaching, please let us know.

Our Annual General Meeting is on 18 May, it would be great to see some new parents attending this.  It is held at 7.30 pm in the Moana Pool meeting room by the old dive pool, children welcome, and it will be over within an hour.  Our club does not do any fund raising, and no-one new is asked to take on Office bearing positions.  Please come along if you can.  Committee meetings are usually held about once per month and again, children are welcome, and meetings are always over within an hour.
Pool entry charges: Club members are able to use facilities at Moana Pool on club night for $2.00.  In order to pay $2.00 entry on club night, members must show a valid club card. Regular pool entry charges apply if you wish to use the facilities.

It is very worthwhile for children to wear a swimming cap, as these help keep hair out of eyes and help with buoyancy and speed.  Club swimmers should all have received a cap, but if your child hasn’t got one, we have more available.  Please see Christine on the first night back.  Goggles are also highly recommended …and long board shorts are not.

If your child needs to leave early on any club night, can you please let the coach know at the beginning of the night.

Each night we mark off attendances.  If your child arrives after the roll has been taken in their area, please catch up on the ladies taking the roll.

This term we have a 200 metre assessment night. Children in the main pool are given passports after these assessment nights with notings of how far they can swim-starting with 25 metres. Silicon Bracelets are issued when a child can swim 200 metres.
If you have any concerns about your child’s swimming, or any suggestions about what you would like to do in Club, please let your coach, or a committee member know.  In the main pool, the coaches should all be following coach plans.  These are available to you if required.
