Club Champs Trophies

November 17th, 2019

It’s that time of year again when we need to start making plans for our Club Presentation Night.
This will be held on Saturday 18th January 20 in the Cambuslang Institute.

Can I ask that all swimmers who received trophies last year return them to the Club desk on a Tuesday night or alternatively make arrangements with a Committee member to return.

Please return NO LATER than FRIDAY 13 DECEMBER to allow for preparation for this years winners.

Many Thanks

 

Sports Performance Nutrition Session

November 16th, 2019

We are delighted to offer the above session to all our swimmers on Wednesday 20th November.

This fantastic opportunity is hosted by Marianne Hayward, a sports nutritionist who has worked previously  with the Scottish Institute of Sport/Scottish Swimming and who provides sports nutrition advice to the Glasgow School of Sport.  She has kindly agreed to provide two educational sessions to all of our swimmers on Wednesday the 20th of November at Trinity High School.  This will be aimed at educating us all on general sports nutrition advice

The first hour session (18:00-19:00) will be for the more junior squads Development through to Rascals.

With the second hour (19:00-20:00) being dedicated to providing more detailed advice for the performance squads. 

The sessions will be hosted at Trinity and replace the normal land training session this Wednesday.

Parents are also welcome to stay and listen and we would encourage everyone to make the most of this opportunity.

Many thanks,

Fiona

 

 

Club Championships 2019

November 14th, 2019

This year’s Club Championships will be at Bellshill on Sunday 24th November.

Please be aware of some important points –

All club swimmers are expected to take part in the Club Championships. If you are unable to attend you MUST let the club desk, Alison or Mike know by 17th November at the latest.

Registration will be from 8:30am until 9:00am. Only registered swimmers will be entered for the competition so it is very important to sign in when you arrive.

At Bellshill swimmers must make their way down the stairs from the gallery to poolside – pool shoes must be worn in order to comply with health and safety regulations.

The Parents & Coaches “Golden Oldies” Trophy will competed for after the main events have concluded. All our more “mature” members are encouraged to take part in this fun event. Swimmers – if you think your parent or carer (or your coach!) has what it takes (to manage to get from one end of the pool to the other!) please ask them to let us know at the break after event 7.

If for whatever reason you have not received an email inviting you to attend please speak to your coach or one of the committee ASAP so that you do not miss out.

PARENTS/CARERS WE NEED YOUR HELP

November 5th, 2019

……….for the 1500m challenge night and club championship day we are looking for as many volunteers to do timekeeping as possible, even if you haven’t done it before. It’s not all work though, at the club championship you have the chance to don your swimming costume in the parents and coaches race. Don’t worry if your pal is doing it or not, just you do it and they will follow – it’s for fun. You don’t want this generation to be the one that finished this great tradition forever!!!! …. bonus points for worst swimming attire!
