Summer Holidays

June 27th, 2017   

I hope everyone has a really great summer holiday break.

A reminder that we are likely to have two interclub galas’ in mid-August, West District Sprints at Ayr in late August and Sheffield Teaspoons mid-September. Everyone needs a break but every week off takes 3-4 weeks to get back in shape. Two weeks off takes 6-8weeks! So, those going to Sheffield and want to do well need to get back to training mid-July unless your holidays are later😊.

Elena will not be taking the Core strength work during the holidays and will be back when the schools return in August.

Head Coach

Chaperones for the Sheffield Weekend

June 21st, 2017   

As you know the Club have arranged to travel to Sheffield in September to participate in the Sheffield Teaspoons Gala. This is a great opportunity for the swimmers to have a fun filled weekend, helps build team spirit within the Club and gives some of the newer/younger members the chance to get to know one another a bit better.

As always these events cannot take place without the help, support and commitment from parents within the Club.

Child Protection Guidance recommends that we have 1 parent for every 3 children attending. In previous years we have booked overnight rooms for 4, 3 children and 1 adult. It is the Clubs intention to do the same again this year.

With this in mind can you let me know ASAP if you are travelling to Sheffield with your child and if you would be willing to be a chaperone for one night. I will need to meet with you to complete a Self Declaration and PVG on behalf of Rutherglen Amateur Swimming Club, otherwise you will not be able to take on this role.
This process can take between 6-8 weeks to complete, hence the urgency of this request.

Please note that if we do not have enough parent helpers/volunteers then this may jeopardise the trip for all concerned!

Please Email Amanda Kennedy (Child Protection/Welfare Officer) ASAP if you are willing to be a chaperone and supervise the swimmers attending. Many thanks!

 

Rutherglen Challenge

June 20th, 2017   

On the 19th of August 2017 we will be holding our Rutherglen Challenge at Larkhall. It’s the fantastic volunteers that help us make these events the success that they always are and we would love you to donate some of your time on the day to support this meet.

A volunteer sheet will be placed on the notice board shortly so please keep an eye out for it.

This is also an opportunity for us to continue to raise funds for our club so we will be holding a raffle at the event. If you have a nice bottle of something sitting in the house or if
you would like to pick up an extra bottle of wine in the weekly shop then please do so and hand it into the club desk please. As always all your support is appreciated and helps us make our club the fantastic success that it is!
