Non Swimming Children

Greenbank have asked us to remind all parents that children who are not swimming are not the responsibility of Active Nation or the Swadlincote Dolphins and should be under the supervision of a responsible adult at all times. The main door to the leisure centre is not controlled, anyone can enter and leave freely.

Under no circumstances should a child be left unattended in the leisure centre while the responsible adult leaves the building.

 

Thanks very much for your understanding and co-operation.

Facebook Group Page

The Swadlincote Swimming Club Facebook Group is a Closed Group, anyone can join this group but they must be a member of Swadlincote Swimming Club.

I  have now set up a feed of these posts so that they can be viewed within the members area of this website.

This allows members to view posts while browsing the website but  without having to be a members of Facebook, this still keeps the Group Closed.

Facebook Group Page

I hope this is of use to some.

Please note that at present this only posts the initial comment not any “likes” or “comments”.

I will work upon this to see if I can these to appear too.

Thanks

Jonathan

Many thanks again to The Coaching Team who have proven time & time again the attention to detail is crucial!(especially in IM’s)

Next focus is Midlands Championships and trying to get even more swimmers qualified’
