URGENT – Novice League – 27th April

I have just received an email to advise that warm up on Sunday at Dunfermline is at 9.00 am not 8.30 am as previously advised.  Please be on poolside at 8.40 to register with the coach.

Also, as there are only 6 lanes at Dunfermline, the gala will run for a bit longer than previous Novice Leagues.  We will probably finish around 12.30 pm.

Afternoon session will be later as well at 13:30.

Swim day – emailing coming soon

Boy did that week go fast, I will get an email out to people I have contact details for and up dates to follow on web site,twitter, FB etc

Don’t any one panic!

Should be in next 24 hours.

Thanks

Swim day information.

A couple of question have come up so hopefully this will help answer them:

This is primarily targeted at the Senior squads.

It may (but probably not) be opened up to the Junior squads, starting with Sharks.

This will be very dependent on numbers.

However we would be very happy for any one to come along and watch and learn from poolside and that is open to swimmers and parents a like. There will be a number of the club coaches there on the day as well.

Swim Day update

Hello – you should have all got you deposits in now for the swim day, thank you very much.

I will collate the information from FB and receipts book as well.

I will then send out an email from swimday.cupar@outlook.com . If you want to send an email now to that address that would help as well.

Many Thanks

Robin

Summer Swim Day 2017 – 20th August

Following on from last years very successful Pres-Season Swim Day we are running another one on the 20th August 2017. It will be run much the same as last year and is open to senior squad swimmers in the first place but may be opened up to other swimmers depending on the numbers. This year we are asking for a deposit of £5 to secure a place to swim. We are doing this to avoid cancellations and disappointment of other swimmers who would have been able to come.

So get your deposit in  by the last day of swimming before the pool closes which is Friday 7th July.

The junior squads are more than welcome to come along and spectate/learn at the pool sessions if they would like to, so please do if you would like to.

The day will be run by Derek McGowan, Scottish Youth Development Coach.

It will take place at the Sports Centre and start at 10:00am.

Below is the provisional timetable:

Arrive 9:30
Pool 10 – 12
Land, Lunch and Education session from 12 – 2
Pool 2 – 4
Plenary – depart by 4:30pm

We really do urge all the senior squad to grab this opportunity to get a head start on the session ahead and make the most of this opportunity to be one step in front of the crowd.

We need to gauge interest in this to be able to run it logistically so please let us know what you think.

More details to follow.

Thank you.

Important Announcements – Training Fees

The club has 2 important announcements regarding Training Fees: – Cupar Swim Club Summer Closure & Training Fees June 17 (1)

Pool Closure in July:

The swimming pool will be closed from 10th July for 3 Weeks.

The committee has decided that in this extraordinary situation the club will suspend training fees for July. Swimmers (& parents) who do not wish to pay training fees in July should ensure that standing orders, transfers etc do not take place for that month.

Any fees paid for July cannot be refunded – please stop your payment before it happens.

Please ensure your payments restart in August – no training fee = no swimming

Squad Training Fees:

Over the past years changes in squad times have not been followed through with proportionate training fee adjustments. Senior Squad training fees are now being aligned to ensure all squad members pay a standard rate per swim hour. At the same time we have realised that there is scope to pass on savings occurring through the club no longer funding a paid Head Coach.

The new fees are contained in the table below:


The new Training Fees will commence on 1st August – please ensure all August (and ongoing) payments are set up to reflect the table above. Anyone changing squads will be notified by their coach by 10th July

Please note Club Membership and SASA fees are not affected by this announcement
