Monthly fees – Coronavirus UPDATE

April 1st, 2020

We hope you are all managing and keeping safe at this difficult time.

We have been informed by Lifestyles that we won’t be charged for future sessions until the pool reopens, therefore we would ask you all to cancel your upcoming April fees.

We will provide an update the middle of each month and so that when we know more we can advise when to reinstate your payments. For those with any back payments due please ensure these are still paid.

You will have noticed we have cancelled the Swim Manager roll out event. The last week has proved how important a move to a more robust system is for those in volunteer posts , so we will be in touch in the future about steps to move over to it.

Wishing you all well.

The Committee

 

Swimming and coronavirus UPDATE

March 17th, 2020

You have no doubt seen updates today regarding the closure of South Lanarkshire properties, including Eastfield Lifestyles, and our own Facebook post confirming our last training sessions tonight until further notice.  A reminder also that all upcoming competitions have been postponed.  Scottish Swimming as of tonight have also advised all aquatics clubs to suspend all activities.

We will of course keep you up-to-date as soon as we hear anything but until then the Club urges you to stay safe and follow all local and national guidelines to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Swimming and coronavirus

March 15th, 2020

As with all organisations at this time, the welfare of our members, parents/carers, volunteers and the wider public is of the utmost importance.  Although many upcoming competitions are being cancelled, at the moment our swim training continues as normal.  We are in regular contact with Lifestyles management and are monitoring guidance from both the UK and Scottish governments as well as Scottish Swimming.  Current government advice on sporting activities is that “There is presently no reason for people to stop doing their daily sport and physical activities as they normally would.”  Further details of Scottish Swimming’s advice can be found here.

As the situation is changing regularly, please make yourself aware of current goverment advice.

Important Info:

Kilmarnock are hosting this round details of times & location are as follows:

Galleon Centre

99 Titchfield St,

Kilmarnock

Warm up is at 1pm, with events due to start at 1.30pm.

There is no team bus for this event so you need to make your own way to Kilmarnock. Ideally we would ask that swimmers aim to be at the Galleon between 12.30 – 12.45 at the very latest.

It is expected that event will be finished by around 4pm.

As with all meets we need to provide a minimum of 2 Time Keepers, so if you are available to support please let me know.

We will have 2 parent volunteers acting as Team Managers on Saturday. They wlll ensure they are poolside ahead of 12.30pm to secure a seating area for our swimmers. So as soon as you arrive please head poolside & look for the usual Rutherglen t shirts.

We will have clyde coast t shirts for all swimmers to wear poolside – these will be handed out on the day & collected back in at the end.

On a final note Kilmarnock have advised that there will be a small entry fee for spectators.

Any other questions please just ask & look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

 

Confirmed Entries for East Kilbride Graded and Age Group Meets

February 13th, 2020

Please see the confirmed entries for each event in the calendar.

If you are new to entering competitions you may see SCR next to your childs name. This means that they have been Scratched. They will no longer be competing in this event and our treasurer will organise a refund.

ALT (or RES) next to your childs name means that they are an Alternative (or Reserve). They are a reserve for the swim and they may get the swim if another swimmer pulls out and withdraws but they also may not get their swim. Normally the coach on poolside can let the swimmers know if they have their swim after the warm up, when the start sheets becomes available as withdrawals are handed in by coaches during the warm up.

Please refer to the Swimming Glosssary page for these and more definitions.
