Dear Swimmers, Taxi-Drivers and Coaches (yes, Coaches – read on!)
THURSDAY 22 MARCH 2018 – SPORT RELIEF SWIMATHON – SAVE THE DATE
Sport Relief is coming your way. On Thursday 22 March, there will be an all club swimathon. The aim is to swim as far as possible and get the sponsor money rolling in. At the same time, there will also be a bake sale going to replace those hard-swum calories.
Entry to the Swimathon will be £2 per child (pay on the night), and from next week sponsor forms will be available from the Club Noticeboard for you to raise even more money for Sport Relief.
5 to 6 pm: Minnows 1 & 2, Piranhas;
6 to 7 pm: Dolphins and Sharks/Plus;
7 to 9 pm: Development, Training, Gold and Wednesday Swimmers.
In the middle of all this, there will be (for one night only….) the COACHES VS MADS (Mum And Dad Swimmers) RELAY RACE. Yes, kids at last, you get to critique all those adults that are continually telling you how to swim, and pay close attention to the style, technique and commitment from the coaches (watch out for warm up demonstrations, no talking at the start, no breathing in the red zone, kick, kick, kick, STREAMLINE etc.)
For any parent wishing to enter this Blue Riband event, a list will also go up on the Noticeboard – no talent needed, just enthusiasm and a willingness to be humiliated….
Exact race format will be decided closer to the date 🙂
More information to come, but please save the date. Baking contributions and parent volunteers to count lengths on the night extremely welcome and very important.
