No club can exist without help from its members. We really do rely on
parents and friends to do the work. The opportunities to help are endless! No
matter how much or how little time you can spare, whether you can commit
yourself to regular work or just occasionally, there is something appropriate
for you. As swimmers reach 16 years or over, how about becoming a swimming
teacher or coach? Or how about becoming a poolside official? We can also offer
you training in both activities.Please let us know the sort of thing you would be interested in helping
with. Tell any Club Committee member, teacher/coach or the Club Secretary
Join the Committee
We need a good mix of people, but above all those who are committed to
working for the Club. The Committee meets nine times per year.
This requires some regular commitment. We can teach you the job and you
don’t have to know anything about swimming at first. All you need is a
willingness to have a go, learn and enthusiasm. The ASA Assistant Teachers
course is often the first course after a period of helping at poolside.
All galas need officials: timekeepers, judges, recorders, referees, etc.
There are courses run each year. “Shadowing” an official at a gala or time
trial is a good way to get an insight into the roles.
