Volunteers required

September 21st, 2016

See below notice from our Child Protection Officer/STO Co-ordinator Rutherglen Amanda Kennedy.

Amateur Swimming Club relies on the good will and help provided by all its members, this includes children, young adults and most importantly the parents of those who are members of the club.

There are various roles within the club that require volunteers to assist with the smooth running of Swimming Galas, Discos, Presentation Nights, Fundraising Events etc., to name a few.

With this in mind can I ask each and every one of you to consider volunteering to help in any of these roles. If interested, please get in touch with any of the committee members or drop me an E mail with your particular interest.

At the moment we are actively looking for parents to participate in a future Timekeeping course which the club will organise in due course. This is a role that is essential to all Galas we attend, and in all honesty we can never have enough. As a club we have a duty to provide Timekeepers/Technical Officials for all events that we have swimmers entering, on occasion this can be very difficult to provide due to a number of events taking place on the same day in different locations. Please note that if we do not provide enough timekeepers/officials in relation to the number of swimmers competing then the club can be penalised. So please step up and help out.

Another important role is that of a Team Manager, again we are actively looking for volunteers to take on this role. There is a course due to take place at Tollcross on 17 October 2016. The role involves assisting the coach who is present at the Gala on the day with organising the children and preparing them for their swims to ensure that they do not miss any and are ready and prepared in plenty of time. A fun job to have and plenty of laughs involved with the children.

If interested in any of the courses above please reply to me ASAP and I will arrange to have you booked onto same. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. You can email me here
