As a competitive swimming club, our internal galas are important in the development of our swimmers. We rely on the support of volunteers to make these a success and simply cannot do it without help. Our next Club gala will be on Sunday March 20th at Darwen Leisure Centre. We would like to hear from anyone who is willing to help out with one of the many roles as the meet including marshals and runners.
We need to have enough qualified timekeepers to be able to run the upcoming meet. These can be anyone who has previously completed a course or those willing to do the course to qualify. The Swim England Timekeeping Course is online and can be completed anytime prior to the Spring Meet.
The course covers what being a timekeeper is all about through an interactive e-learning which will take you between 60 and 90 minutes to complete, followed by a practical timekeeping session. This can be completed at an event such as the Spring Meet.
You can find out more and sign up here.
The Club will reimburse the £5 course fee once the course is completed including the practical session.
Also, could any parents who have previously completed one of the timekeeping courses the Club has run or online and is willing to assist at the upcoming gala please contact us or comment below.
An Inspector of Turns ensures swimmers comply with the rules for turning and also the starting and finishing rules. The rules differ for each stroke, so Inspectors of Turns need to know the rules for each swimming stroke. We would like to hear from anyone interested in completing the online course Swimming Technical Officials - Judge 1 Theory – details can be found here.
If you are able to help out at the upcoming gala please email Claire email@example.com or comment below.
