Ladies Night then swim at first light!

Some of the ladies (members, parents and volunteers) let their hair down on Saturday night at The Watershed Kitchen for their yearly dinner. It was a fun evening for all, connecting with new and existing members over a drink and a meal.

Some very brave and committed swimmers even plunged into the freezing water at Bondi Beach early the next morning! Great effort girls!

Please help with Timekeeping

To ensure our swimming races run smoothly and we finish before 10.30am, it would be greatly appreciated if parents or members (junior members too) could please assist with timekeeping duties.

It’s very easy to do – just pick a lane and press the buttons on the blue stopwatches when your swimmer touches the wall. Then write down the times on the stopwatches onto the time sheet.

To make the races flow even more smoothly, we are trialling a new procedure for timekeepers. After you have written the stopwatch times down onto the time sheet, place your hand up in the air, to let the Starter know they can start the next race.

We welcome any further feedback or suggestions for keeping races moving along.

Thank you for your assistance everyone!

Reminder: Late comers miss out on race points!

It was another beautiful morning at Swim Club last week. To ensure that we finish all of our races by 10.30am it’s important that we start our races on time at 7.30am, which means being signed in by 7.15am.

To encourage everyone to arrive on time, tardy swimmers will be put into a ‘late comers’ race and will miss out on valuable race points!

‘Late comer’ races are similar to time trials, with all swimmers starting off ‘Go’ and swimmers earning a solitary point for their effort.

We look forward to seeing you all early on Saturday morning!

Please return your trophies

Please polish up any trophies that you won last season and bring them along to Swim Club this Saturday, for display in the trophy cabinets in our Club Room.

To share your win with your friends, please take some photos of your gleaming trophies, together with names of previous winners, for us to publish on our website.

Timekeepers wanted

To ensure our swimming races run as smoothly as possibly on Saturday mornings it would be greatly appreciated if parents or suitable members could please assist with timekeeping duties. Even for a few races would be so helpful. More hands mean light work!

It’s very easy to do – just pick a lane and press the buttons on the blue stopwatches when your swimmer touches the wall. Then write down the times on the stopwatches onto the time sheet, in case we need to refer to them as a backup.

To make the races flow even smoother, we will be trialling a new procedure for timekeepers this Saturday. After you have written the watch times down onto the time sheet, place your hand up in the air, to let the Starter know they can start the next race.

We welcome any feedback or other suggestions for keeping races moving along.
