Getting involved with your club…….Timekeeping coursesGetting involved with your club…….Timekeeping courses
As a thriving club we are looking to expand our resources and volunteers in order that we can keep running successful championships, club galas etc. Would any parents/relatives/friends of swimmers be interested in becoming a timkeeper? Our local HCASA co-ordinator will be running a course in August or September this year and we would like to be able to put forward a group to be trained as official timekeepers – not only would this help us at our own events we host, but when we send teams to the mainland we are often asked for officials. Also, as many are unaware of this fact, at some mainland open meets when a certain number of swimmers attend, one of the conditions is that we provide an official of sorts – a timekeeper will suffice for this purpose.
This would be a great way for parents to be involved with their children’s competitive swimming – please contact either Ben Gard on firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie Van der Helstraete on email@example.com and we can add your name to the list and provide details of what this involves. This course will be funded by the club in exchange for volunteering your time back.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Ben & Julie
