The club AGM will be held on 9th March 2018
8.15-10pm at Andover Guildhall (High Street, SP10 1LP).
All club members are encourage to attend – this is your opportunity to tell the committee how the club should be run and to hear about plans for the future.
Please contact the Chair or Secretary if you have any items for the agenda.
Please check the noticeboard at the pool to see if you have been selected for this gala, and tick to confirm you will attend.
- This is a team gala against other club(s) where we will choose who swims which events.
- We need to put 2 full teams in for this gala, so please make every effort to come if you are selected.
- We are short in some age groups, so some people will be “swimming up”.
- Please ensure you are there before 6:00pm ready for warm-up.
- Ask Emily, Mark or Guy if you have any questions.
NOTE: We are aware John Hanson has a netball weekend which clashes with this gala, so we have not selected any girls likely to be affected. However, if you are in Competitive Squad, have not been picked for this gala, but are available, please let us know.
Half Term Swimming: All swimming club sessions will continue as normal throughout half term week.
Club Fees: Please can everyone make sure their Standing Order is set to pay club fees within the first 15 days of each month. This makes our admin much easier, thanks.
Diving Session: Remember the diving session at Basingstoke Aquadrome this Saturday from 5pm to 7pm (see previous news item for details).
We are pleased to be able to offer this additional session, focusing on diving including competitive starts from racing blocks which the temporary pool cannot accommodate.
This session is NOT suitable open to those who swim in our Learn to Compete squad (i.e. those who swim on Monday at 6:30pm).
It is suitable for EVERYONE ELSE from all other squads, including masters.
This is a vital part of competitive swimming which we have limited ability to practice, so you are requested to make every effort to attend.
Please tick the sheet on the noticeboard at the pool to confirm you will attend. A donation of £3 per swimmer is requested to cover the cost of coaching and pool hire.
