Thanks to all the volunteers at Saturday’s development meet. Despite such a high volume of swimmers and spectators, everything ran well. Thanks also to our first time Referee and Starter, who did a fabulous job despite equipment gremlins.

Some words from coach Lindsay on Saturdays Clyde Coast training:
Thanks to everyone who was able to come this morning, what a great turnout. One more special session next Saturday before the first round on Sunday at Whitehill.
A BIG welcome to our two new members John Dunn and Kirsty Forrest who both went very well this morning, not forgetting Cara and Kieran Swallow who also joined recently.
A big thanks to Adam who has done a fantastic job with the T-Shirts. There will be some rules regarding Team kit distributed later, but in the meantime please don’t use the T-shirts till next Sunday (except to show mums and dads!).
Remember the skills learned today and that Tuesday night is time trials.
Any swimmer who has ticked the Clyde Coast Team availability sheet on the board can come down to morning training tomorrow 07.00-08.15. There will be a nice surprise awaiting them and you will be the first swimmers in the club to obtain something really new and we think special. This is a new venture for us as a Club.
There will also be a chance of a photo opportunity as a group too.
Please try and get there for 06.50 so as we can get this sorted and then run a great team session. Look forward to seeing you all there, don’t miss out!

This is a notice for parents/swimmers going to this years SNAGS in Aberdeen.
Below is an email from Derek McGown about the upcoming SL Team time trials at Larkhall.
Thanks for your entries for the Time Trial on Sunday 26th.
We will start the warm up from 9.10am and start by 10 am at the very latest. We can see what time people need.
If there are any additional entries that you require between now and a week on Sunday, please let me know and we can look to get these added for you where possible.
We will also be running a couple of heats of random relays at the end to allow any STOs the opportunity to be signed off on relays for Judge 1/2 Training.
Please let me know of any officials that you will be sending on the day and what qualification they hold in order for Jean King to work out who will do what role to fulfill the requirements for accreditation.
We will run manual timing therefore need plenty of TK’s.
All events will be run as mixed gender/mixed age group based on any times you submitted and should you require anything on the day, such as an extra few minutes between events, we can try and accommodate this too. As soon as I finalised our last few entries, I will send out a Psych Sheet and a Session Time plan for the day.
Hope this is worthwhile for us all as an SL Team and look forward to seeing you all on the day!
The long awaited new Club kit has finally completed its design stage and will be available to order very shortly – tops, hoodies, shorts, sweat pants, onesies / shorties, and eventually leggings. Please note that the “shop window” will be open for 2 weeks only, after which point the orders will be sent off for manufacture and delivered about 8 weeks later. Sizing samples will be available to try on before ordering. We’ll open several “shop windows” throughout the year to give everyone a chance to get what they need.
The Clyde Coast team tops (a funky variation of the Club top) should be arriving this week, so if you’re in the team you’ll be the first to see the new design.

We are looking for a number of volunteers for the South Lanarkshire Development meet on the 18th Feb. If you have a swimmer at this meet, please can you add your name to the list on the club notice board.
A number of jobs are available, from officiating (trained timekeepers and judges), to the many Meet support tasks, including: front desk and programme sales; raffle; tea and coffee; swimmer marshalling; and poolside runners.
Development meets are essential to the advancement of all swimmers. They also help to generate funds for the hosting club and solely rely on the help and support of parents and families. A successful meet will help boost our club’s profile and will support our fantastic swimmers as they continue develop.
Your help is greatly appreciated!
Congratulations to the Swimmers of the Month for January:
Development – Monica Muir
Silver – Megan Fyfe
Gold – Leah Dereje
Performance – Ross McGhee
