Ripley Rascals Open Meet Times

Swimmers Times from the Ripley Rascals Open Meet held at Alfreton can now be found in the Members Area

Results

A great day with a number of swimmers experiencing an open meet for the first time; many swimmers established new pb’s, were set new process goals to follow in competition & training. In many races SSC were represented by 2 or more swimmers each competitor urged on to try to beat their team-mate.

The swimmers set a very high percentage of pb’s & Top 6 finishes.

Their behaviour poolside was excellent and a credit to the club.

It was also great to see all the swimmers competing in club caps, something that needs to carry on.

Many thanks to all the poolside helpers & coaches who helped at Alfreton & at GBLC who carried the training sessions on for those not competing.

Time Trial Results – 10/06/2016

Results of the Time Trials held at Repton on Friday 10th June 2016 are now available in the Members Area.

A high number of pb’s although this can be down to the fact swimmers were swimming different distances than they would normally select.

This also accounts for the high number of dq’s, lets hope the swimmers take these mistakes and work on them in time for the upcoming open meets.

Important – Oustanding Swimmer Fees !

We have looked at our monthly Standing Order income versus the levels expected based on the current positions of all swimmers in the club.  There are a number of discrepancies relating either to the January price rise or recent swimmer moves from Mini’s to Junior’s or Junior’s to Senior groups.

The financial situation of the club was highlighted at the AGM in November and this led to the fees rise in January.  We are still not blessed with a huge bank balance and so missing fees become a major issue.

Emails will be sent to remind those who need to amend Standing Orders and pay outstanding balances of the amounts due, but to remind people in advance the current monthly fees are:

 

Minis (Little Dippers)      £15 per month

Junior’s (Snappers, Turtles, Penguins & Sharks) £32 per month

Senior groups (Alpha, Zeta & Omega)     £42 per month.

These fees are requested to be paid by Standing order on the 1st of each month

Any Parents running their own business?

If we were to have a page on the website where parents and others connected to the club could advertise their company (logo, quick description, link to company website) for a small fee, how many people might be interested?

New member recruitment

We have had some (well a lot actually) Flyers printed to advertise the club, there are some at reception in Greenbank, maybe you’ve seen them.
If anyone knows of anywhere suitable to distribute them to try to attract new members then please get in touch and we can give you a supply. We’re thinking of schools, scouts, guides, village halls, local shops etc.
Thanks for your help.

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.
