Kit Carrier Opportunity - Names can be given at the desk
Dear Club Secretary
As you may know the Scottish National Age Group Championships 2019 are being held at Tollcross International Swimming Centre from 27th – 31st March.
We would like to give clubs the opportunity to offer their swimmers a chance to be volunteer kit carriers for the evening sessions (approx. 16:45 – 19:30). We are also looking for a couple of adult volunteers to supervise each evening. Twelve volunteers are required each evening aged 10 and over - one for each lane and two to carry medal cushions.
I would be grateful if you could circulate this to your members. If anybody is interested, please could you email me with the parent/guardian contact details and which evening (s) they would be available for no later than Monday 25th February. Once I have all the names in, I will draw up a rota for each evening.
Thanking you in anticipation.

Payment for swims
Please be advised that when Sharks swimmers are entered in a gala the club has to pay the host club in full and up front for all the events that each swimmer has chosen to compete in.
When the list of accepted swims is published we are then informed of swimmers that have been scratched from any events. The club will receive a full refund for any scratched swims and we would not expect anyone to pay for a scratched swim. All other swims (including reserve swims) are then due to be paid for.
If a swimmer has a reserve swim then the expectation is that the swimmer will attend the gala. If the swimmer doesn’t get the reserve swim for any reason then the club will receive a full refund for that swim. If the swimmer gets the reserve swim or fails to turn up for that event then the refund will not be due back to the club.
Attending galas is the biggest single external expense that the club has and it is vital that all payments are received within a reasonable
timeframe. If anyone is ever unsure about what they are due to pay for any events you can get details at the desk every Wednesday night. If you are unable to attend on a Wednesday please

The Coaches are NOT responsible for the swimmer prior to or after training sessions. If you think you will be late for picking up your child after training session please phone the Sports Centre and ask that a message is passed on to the coaching staff.
Please inform Coach of any information regarding your child i.e. Injuries/Medical changes prior to their training session.
Do NOT distract the coach during a training session.
Do NOT coach your child from the spectator's gallery.
Sessions are planned for different aspects of training, with any interruptions to the session undermining the authority of the Coach. If you wish to speak to the Coach please do so at the end of the session.
