Term 4 2017

Term 4 begins on 20 October and we look forward to seeing you at the pool for the last term.  Its hard to believe that the year is nearly over.

All our wonderful coaches are volunteers, and have again done a great job.  A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL COACHES.    Most of our student coaches will only have 2 more weeks with us this year and we wish them all the best for their future.  Greagh from lane 2 in the shallow end will not be returning next year, and a big Thank you and Good Bye go to her.

Thank you to the parents who helped time the races in the main pool for our competition nights, and well done to the children for winning the coach/children race 😊.

This year we are again running a competition for children to design the background of the certificate which will be issued to each child at the end of the year.

The picture could be something that represents our club, something we have done this year, or just something water related.  Below is a couple of examples of previous entries.

Please get your child to work on a picture and give it to their coach by the 2nd night of next term, or: you could scan it or photograph it, and  email it to us at dunedinswimmingclub@outlook.com   Picture should be A5 size (that’s half the size of a normal piece of paper) and be landscape.  Little or no writing on it please.

A family hydro-slide pass will be given to the winner from the learners pool and 5 individual hydro-slide passes for the winner from the main pool.

On 27 October and 3 November in the main pool, we are having Under Water Hockey training for all main pool deep end swimmers and for anyone from the main pool shallow end who would like to give this a go.  This is a great opportunity to learn Underwater hockey, and everything is supplied.  If your child has own flippers, snorkel, they are most welcome to bring them along.

We may have a game against Kawa on Sunday 5th November at 4.30pm, but they have indicated that they may not have a team to put up.  If they do get a team, we will need 8 or 9 people to come along and play. We will let you know.

On those two nights, the remaining swimmers in the main pool will be playing flipper ball in the shallow end.

The timetable for the rest of the year is showing below.

More information about Prize-giving will be sent to you later
