Kit co-ordinator needed – not too onerous a job and gets you involved with your club and all members/volunteers.
We need someone to take over the kit co-ordination with Kudos (and the lovely Spencer!), keep up to date records of kit we have in stock and order at the relevant times, issuing a polo shirt and hat to any new junior squad member, lifeguard, coaches and that’s really it.
With a club membership of 160 odd swimmers & volunteers if you can help please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Travel details are confirmed now – we will meet at Ryde Pier Head at 15.15 to get the 15.47 ferry over. We will be travelling by coach to Haslemere. The gala is starting slightly earlier than normal so will hope to be on the 21.20 ferry back from Portsmouth.
If you haven’t confirmed if you can attend please let us know using the details below. I have some volunteers but any officials that would be able to come and help please let us know.
The Round 1 Team Sheet 2017 can be downloaded here.
We need to provide officials to support this gala so if you can attend in this capacity please let us know.
Please drop an e-mail to email@example.com to confirm attendance.
Travel details will be confirmed but will likely be 3/4pm from Ryde Pier head returning later in the evening. We will be travelling as a team by coach.
It has recently become clear that we are unable to maintain the current demands on our coaching volunteers.
As a result, the Club’s Committee has now taken the difficult decision to cancel our booking at The Heights on Thursday evenings as of the 10th March 2017 – our last session will therefore be Thursday 9th March 2017.
We are currently enjoying additional pool time on a Sunday evening in a combined session with West Wight Swimming Club and look to continue that relationship moving forward. We are also exploring other ways that we can offer our members the option of increased pool time and hope to make an announcement shortly.
As part of our commitment to expanding our volunteer base we are currently seeking expressions of interest for persons to undertake a Level 1 Coaching course at Waterside Pool.
If you are interested in undertaking the course and would like to volunteer for the Club, or have further questions, please in the first instance contact Julie Van der Helstraete, Club Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org

There is no training at the Heights on Thursday evening this week (23rd Feb)
All other sessions for half term are on as normal.
The club will be attending the Southampton Level 3 Open meet on Sunday March 19th.
Entry fee is £5.50 per event. Further information is available at www.cossc.org/index.php/openmeets-14 – there are upper limit entry times so please check before deciding to enter.
If you want to attend Val will coordinate entries but details have to be with Val by 8th Feb as the event is first come first served.
We have been waiting to confirm dates of other galas and now this is done we will be confirming dates of other Isle of Wight meets and which other open meets we will attend as soon as possible.
