A huge well done to all our swimmers who competed at London open on Saturday, a fantastic day all round.
A big thank you to all the parent volunteers who supported the swimmers and the competition. A special mention to Jane Khan who gave up her time to team manage even though her daughter wasn’t swimming on Saturday, thank you Jane we value you as a volunteer and all you do for the club. Thank you to Andrew and Agnese for judging we would not be able to enter these events without you. We do definitely need more parents to come forward to train as team managers, now some of our newer parents have attended a competition maybe you think you could be more hands on involved please let me know. The team managers course is only half a day and the club will pay for this for you. Or of course if you would like to train as a poolside coaching assistant or a judge please let me know as we have some courses coming up over the summer.
