2. BAROSSA SWIMMING CLUB SEASON CALENDAR

The new season (2019/20) commences on October 1st.

Please find below a copy of our calendar for next season – please note carefully the dates of our club-targeted meets (all swimmers of all squad levels are asked to enter these meets), as well as the dates of the championship meets (country LC, state LC and state SC).

Please note also that the calendar includes a number of proposed dates, including short squad breaks (these dates still require committee ratification and approval).

While an extensive list of meets is indicated in the calendar, a host of other meets are available. Swimmers seeking competitions are encouraged to view the Swimming SA website for details of upcoming meets.

We encourage those wishing to compete prior to October to enter the Playford Aquatic meet on Sat 29th Sep (entries close next week on 9th September)

*On average, swimmers should aim to compete in one carnival per month across the season.

*Where possible, swimmers should discuss their carnival selection and event entries with the Head Coach.

Applications for club captaincy are now open. Applicants are asked to complete and return the attached application by email by midnight of Sunday September 2nd.

Swimmers applying for the senior captaincy must be 13 years of age as of 8th January 2020.

4. PLAYFORD MEET SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29TH –ENTRIES CLOSE TOMORROW (SEPTEMBER 9TH)

Please be reminded that entries for the Playford Meet of September 29th (Sunday after AFL Grand Final) close tomorrow.


5. DUEL IN THE POOL SEASON LAUNCH DAY/INCLUDES TEAM PHOTO/TEAM CAPTAIN ANNOUNCEMENT : SATURDAY OCTOBER 12TH

We are excited to announce our plan to kick off the new season with an intra-club “DUEL IN THE POOL” event on Saturday October 12th.

The idea will be to split the swimmers into four teams, with a coach allocated to oversee each team. The program will consist entirely of novelty events, including some to be held out of the pool.

Each wavemaker will be assigned to one of the four teams – accordingly, we will need to know in advance whether the swimmer is available to participate or not.

A separate email asking for indication of the swimmer’s availability will be send out this week.


6. NEW DIVE BLOCKS – LANE 1

We are excited to report that new championship-style dive blocks purchased by the club have been installed in Lane 1 at the Rex.

Huge thanks to Lincoln Shannon from Shannon Welding for installing the blocks for us. Well done to Stephen Cook for sourcing, arranging and organising the purchase of the blocks.


7. BRING A FRIEND CAMPAIGN – PRIZES TO BE WON

We have commenced our “bring a friend” campaign which will extend over September and October. All swimmers who introduce a “friend” to our club over the next two months will go into a prize draw.

Friends may attend four swim sessions at no cost ( no Rex entry or coaching fees)

Please encourage your child to talk to a friend about bringing them along to our wonderful club.


8. STATE TEAMS CHAMPIONSHIPS– AIS CANBERRA

As many of you know, wavemaker Harliai has been selected on to the SA state team for the prestigious State Teams SC Championships to be held out of the AIS from 4th to 6th October.

I am delighted to be able to inform that (mum) Angela has been selected to represent Barossa Swimming Club and Team SA at these championships as an official.

This week I also received notification that I have been selected on to the SA State Team coaching panel for these championships.
