We would just like to take this opportunity to wish all our members, helpers and coaches a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It's the last training sessions today with training resuming on the 6th Jan 2018.
Eat, drink, rest and be merry, for next year we train hard :)
Just a quick reminder for those new to JD or District squads that Saturday morning training sessions at Brinscall are from 9am-11am as the Rookie Lifeguard course is on afterwards from 11am-11:30am
Last night saw Chorley Marlins finish 4th in the regional NW Arena League final gala. The teams that finished in the top six after the first two rounds battle out for promotion to the league above. We did ourselves proud and every swimmer can be pleased of what they achieved in a very tough gala, well done everyone. To cap the evening off we were voted Best Supporting Club, which means we showed a sense of fair play, we supported our swimmers well and were all dressed in team colours, looking very smart indeed. Well done everyone :)
It was a great night last night at presentation eve, everything went really well
and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves.
Someone must have enjoyed themselves that much that they forgot their coat on one of the coldest nights for months :)
A black hooded jacket, size 10 from Dorothy Perkins was left behind.
If you would like to collect it from Bev (Treasurer) she will be at the pool Sunday night or during the week. Please email her to organise a time to pick it up
We are pleased to inform those swimmers who are in Alphas
That as from Tuesday 6th February 2018, there will be an additional training session which will be held at Brinscall at 7pm to 8pm.
Should you need more information, please speak with Mary or the Coaches.
Please note that training fees have been increased as of the 1st January 2018 to account for the extra pool time.
You may have received your letter already or will shortly
but it's posted here for your benefit.

Once you have received your form/s it needs to be completed and returned, before MONDAY 12th February 2018, with your Swim England Membership and Club Membership payments, together with confirmation that your Monthly Training fees have been increased from 1st January 2018
RENEWALS CAN NOT BE PROCESSED WITHOUT ALL OF THE ABOVE BEING RECEIVED/CONFIRMED, NO REMINDERS WILL BE ISSUED
Any problems, concerns or questions, please speak to the liaison officers, committee members or alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org

Returning your form/increasing your training fees after these dates will mean that unfortunately you will not be registered with SE or Chorley Marlins and therefore unable to swim for insurance purposes.
Changes to Swim England club membership
Swim England have decided to implement some changes which will come into effect in 2018.
The introduction of the Online Membership System (OMS) in 2012 streamlined the administration of renewals data. To make sure that clubs and members are properly insured for the activities they are taking part in, Swim England have made the decision to bring the submission of the renewals deadline forward to the 28 February for 2018.
To enable us to make this dead line we request that renewal forms are returned please by the 12 February 2018
From January 2018 membership cards will no longer be issued to new members.
New members will now receive an email from Swim England once we have processed their details. This will tell them all about their Swim England membership benefits and how they can access the Online Membership System (OMS) to view and update their details. Members will also get an email when their membership is renewed.
If you have any questions, please contact us at www.chorleymarlins.org.uk
