2. CHANGE IN DATES: DUEL IN THE POOL SEASON LAUNCH DAY/SUMMER SUPER SPRINTS XMAS PARTY

After much deliberation, we have decided to change the date for our DUEL IN THE POOL SEASON LAUNCH DAY to Sunday October 20th. This is the first Sunday back after the holidays, which we are hopeful better serves the majority.

Also, our Summer Super Sprints Xmas Party will now be held on Thursday December 6th.


3. NEW SEASON MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION FORMS

New season membership registrations forms will be issued by email soon.

All swimmers must complete this registration form within one week of season commencement (Sunday October 1st)

Each swimmer will be assigned to a squad for the commencement of the new season, and the membership registration form will ask for signed agreement to this squad and to the associated training fee.

4. ANNOUNCEMENT OF ADDITIONAL TRAINING SESSION

We are pleased to advise that an additional session will be added to our training schedule from October 1st. The new session will take place on Wednesday afternoons.

The session will be added to accommodate specific selected swimmers of the T2 squads and above.


5. AFL GRAND FINAL DAY TRAINING CHANGE

Training will not be held at the normal time on AFL Grand Final Day of Saturday September 28th and, assuming availability of lane space, will instead be held during the morning hours.

The revised training times for AFL Grand Final Day will be announced in next week’s

newsletter.

6. 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.

7. CLUB CAPTAIN APPLICATIONS – DUE BY EMAIL SEPTEMBER 22nd

Club captaincy applicants are asked to complete and return the attached application by email by midnight of Sunday September 2nd.

Swimmers applying for the junior captaincy must be 10 years of age as of 8th January 2020.

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

Interested athletes should read the club captaincy criteria carefully.

All eligible athletes (which includes those who served in the role in the 2017-18 season) are encouraged to apply for a captaincy position.


8. BRING A FRIEND CAMPAIGN – PRIZES TO BE WON

Our “bring a friend” campaign has commenced. All swimmers who introduce a “friend” to our club over the next two months will go into a prize draw.

Friends will be issued with a punch card (available at the Rex counter) that allows them attend four swim sessions at no cost

We have flyers for your child to distribute to their friends – please let me know if you would like some flyers for your child to distribute among their friends.


9. EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST – TRAINING ASSISTANTS

The coaching panel are anxious to encourage any keen and available parents to assist on pool deck when they can. This assistance would be simple and, for example, could potentially take the form of writing times on the white board, taking times, or standing at the end of a lane calling the time cycle at which the swimmers are expected to leave the wall. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out the coaching group in a training assistant role.


10. TRAINING CHANGES THIS WEEK

There are no training changes this week.


11. TRAINING TIMETABLE THIS WEEK.
