Summer Break

As we get near the end of the school term ready for the summer break some confirmed dates for your diary:

The last weekend of lessons is this week (8th/9th July).

Lessons will start again on the 2nd / 3rd September. As we have had a bit of a disrupted block of lessons this time we will contact everyone to confirm their / groups times for the new swimming year as we towards the end of the summer holidays.

Squads will continue through to July 23rd. The pool closes for a week on the 24th July so we cannot train any longer than this date.

We are hoping to run some Wednesday morning sessions in last 3 weeks of August but will confirm this as soon as we have the pool booked.

 

Team Managers Course (Not just for Team Managers!)

Swim England have brought in new rules that the Team Manager qualification is required by anyone wishing to be on poolside for the Nationals and it is being filtered down to Open Meets etc.  
 
The course is the ‘Team Managers 1 & 2’ and is completed as a 1-off course. It does not need to be repeated or renewed.  
 
Any person wishing to be on poolside at gala’s and open meets will need to have this.  
 
Seaclose are hosting a course and with the tutor coming to the Island we have special permission to complete both modules will be covered on the same day.
 
The date is Saturday 30th September at Medina Leisure Centre. Time to be confirmed but will likely be between 8.30 – 4 p.m.
 
The course is free for Seaclose S.C. Members and parents.
 
Please let us know by the end of July if you can attend by e-mailing chairman@seaclosesc.co.uk
