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!
