Many of you may already be aware that Bill has a holiday booked between the dates of September 25 and December 3. In the past few weeks The Executive has been working to cover his absence with the direct intention of having minimal impact upon your training regime. We are pleased to say that we have obtained the services of Cassey Lea, Beth Colquhoun and Ben Wise to help us out during this eight week period.
We would also like to point out that the programs which they will run have been put together by Bill directly relating to the training you are already doing. There will be times during this period that it may not be possible to have any of the three above mentioned coaches on pooldeck, due to their other work commitments, so it will be up to one of The Executive to write the sets up and supervise the session.
We would also like to make apparent there is a degree of expectation upon the swimmers to help out during this time. We believe that by now all gold and silver swimmers have been at the club long enough to know what is acceptable in terms of behaviour, attitude and commitment to training and competition. We would like to see both our Club Captains and senior, or more experienced, swimmers shoulder some of the responsibility in order to help our sessions run as smoothly as possible. In short we want you to enjoy yourselves in the water but understand the work needs to be done in order to ensure your fitness and focus doesn’t deteriorate.
We would like to think that this two month period will operate as if nothing has changed and guarantee to provide you with the best possible scenario available both on pooldeck and at meets.
We will keep all members up to date with any new developments in the future and look forward to seeing how the club, and swimmers, deal with this period as it approaches.
