REMEMBER – Our licensed meets are run by VOLUNTEERS, the more help we get, the better the meet, so don’t be shy!!
If you have a specific skill/ talent or you just fancy getting involved, please do not hesitate to offer your services, either directly to a member of the Executive committee or via email
It is essential that where possible ALL parents or careers volunteer at some stage in their child’s progression through the club. Some people think that they have nothing to offer, or what they do have to offer will not be of any value to the club, when what we require mostly is just someone’s time. All of the tasks for volunteers are relatively simple and there will always be somebody there to show you the ropes and support you for the first couple of times you do the task.
Our meets require a large numbers of volunteers to function, some of the tasks need some training such as time keepers and officials (courses are run occasionally through the year, look on the notice board and website for details if you are interested). Other tasks include :- supplying volunteers with refreshments on poolside, sitting at the door and taking admission fee’s and selling raffle tickets, being a ‘runner’, a steward or a team manager on poolside. If you have a flair on the karaoke then maybe the announcers job would suit you!

This year we are running a tight schedule. We have taken the approach to provide every possible water time for swimming and as a result we will be constrained with spectator seating. Clubs and parents please see the Door Policy - The door team will be doing everything possible to try and ensure that all parents/guardians are able to see their children swim. We are limited to 220 seats and with between 310 & 350 swimmers on poolside you can see the challenge hence why we will be running a rolling door policy. Admission costs per person will be only £2 per person based on rolling spectator gallery.
Final Accepted & Rejected Swims are available below along with the Schedule. Please may we ask that Club’s stick to their warmup slots to help us ensure the Meet runs to time.
Reserves: We have filled all available lanes at this point in time. Due to the timelines if I receive any more withdrawals we may not be able to fill the spaces left. Only Club coordinators’ are to email or discuss with Darryl.
Thank you and we wish all the swimmers a great weekend ahead.
