Latest Newsletter - 10 February

Welcome Back
A big welcome back to all swimmers and families who have been holidaying over the past few weeks. Although the weather has been against us, with extreme heat and then cold and rainy weather, we hope to be back into the swim of things this week.

With the club losing many swimmers over the Christmas break through families leaving town and swimmers heading off to boarding school, it is a great time to get personalised coaching with smaller squads and additional coaches.

All swimmers are encouraged to attend as many sessions as they can, with all squads training now from Monday to Thursday"

  • White Squad – 5.00pm – 6.00pm
  • Green Squad – 5.00pm – 6.30pm
  • Black Squad – 5.00pm – 7.00pm

Half-Season Memberships Available
The club is now recruiting for new swimmers. Anyone who is interested in joining the club should attend the pool during one of our training sessions (above) and "Try Out". The coaches will be able to discuss details of competitive swimming and provide advice on suitable squads etc. All swimmers who can swim one lap of a recognisable stroke are welcome to join.

Calling for a Club Vice President & Committee Members
The club is now recruiting for a new Vice President. This role is now available due to Christine moving back to Adelaide. We are also seeking interested parents for General Committee Positions. Please contact any committee member or coach for further details on what is involved. Jump in now before the scary Treasurer or Secretary positions become available … LOL ...

Upcoming Carnivals
Parents are reminded to keep an eye on their emails or the Swimming SA website to identify carnivals that they would like their swimmers to compete at. Nominations normally close four weeks prior to the event, and Magriet (Club Nominations Officer) is available to assist all families with nominations.

Reminder – HOT WEATHER POLICY
The Roxby Downs Swimming Club Hot Weather Policy requires that in the event of ambient temperatures of more than 38 Degrees Celsius, swim training will be cancelled for all squads.
The correct temperature will be established by a report given on the Elders Website at 3.30pm on any given afternoon.

Coaches will not be attending the pool on these days and parents will need to ensure their children are aware of cancellations to training and other arrangements are made for their children.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Hot Weather Policy please do not hesitate to contact the committee.
