Are you aged between 14 and 18 years and looking to access training opportunities to volunteer within aquatics?
Following the success of the 2015-16 programme, the SER is looking to increase the number of trained young people and to improve accessibility to formal and informal training opportunities.
There are 6 programmes currently planned for 2016-17. Young People participating in the programme will be expected to attend two Development Days, the first of which will be held in a range of venues across the Region between September and November 2016.
Following the Development Day, the young people will be expected to undertake 10 hours volunteering within their own club environment before attending a second Development Day between January – March 2017 (please note, no dates will clash with County Championships).
Details of the second development day will be confirmed at the first development days. As part of the programme, the young people will also be expected to volunteer at an aquatic event (club, county or regional) over the coming 12 months.

- 9th October Medway Park, Kent

I have booked a table at Pizza Express for us to spend some time together outside of the pool, we did this last year and it worked a treat. Come and join us this year!
Remember we are all representing Seaclose Swim Club so we all need to be on our best behaviour. If you think you may struggle with this, please wait until next year. (I will take contact numbers of parents of younger pre seniors, just in case of an issue on the night, as parents will be asked to collect you early if need be).

Please let me know so I have a rough idea of numbers, as I will need to confirm with Pizza Express. No deposit needed just turn up on the night.
Contact Ellie King for via face-to face or facebook
As you will remember the fees for squad sessions changed from September 2015 and many members have yet to change them.
Please can you do this ASAP and let us have the difference in fees for September and October (if paid so far this month) as the club has to cover the increased pool hire/ASA fees etc.
Pre-Senior Squads: £24
Senior Squads: £25
Seaclose Club Champs
For 2015 we are running the club champs slightly differently. This is for a number of reasons including changes in the competition calendar at national level, reducing the burden on volunteers and officials and to look at ensuring the champs are sustainable in the future.
The main differences are that the Champs will now run in July and will act as one of the last major event of the season. The champs will be run in confjunciton with West Wight Swimming club. This allows us to share pool time and officials. Swimmers will compete in shared heats but results will be for the individual club. Finally we have reviewed age groups so rather than the long distance events being run as Junior/Intermidiate/Senior age groups they will use the same age groups as the shorter distance events.
