THANKYOU : Woden Development Meet

On Sunday (26 June 2016), we held our annual Development Meet at the AIS.  The meet saw many of our swimmers reach personal goals (Meet Report coming soon), and the day was enjoyed by all.  Of course, a successful meet would not have been possible without the army of volunteers who contributed.  We would like to thank every one of you who helped out, not only on Sunday, but in the lead up to the meet. 

To our very own Vice President, Marcus Stokes, who was the Meet Director … Thank you! 

To the officials from all the ACT District clubs, the Woden parents and committee members who volunteered their time and helped out throughout the day … Thank you!

A special Thank you to our wonderful Catering Crew and to those who donated the ample supply of food … we certainly didn’t go without!!!

To the Woden Sharks who helped make the day such a success, whether you were doing a fantastic job as the announcer, being a recorder, a runner, a lap counter, or feeding the officials, coaches and timekeepers … Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou!  We are very proud of all your efforts.

Every one of you make this club what it is …… Fantastic!!!

And finally, Thank you to JARROD KILLEY, member of the Australian Dolphins who gave up his time to meet the kids on Sunday.  The kids (and parents) enjoyed meeting, chatting and getting Jarrod’s autograph.  It was a pleasure meeting Jarrod and we wish him all the very best in his future swimming career.

ACT SWIMMING : Training – Judge of Stroke

Training for Technical Officials – judge of stroke

Swimming ACT will be running training for people interested in training as a judge of stroke.  The training will include the theory for inspectors of turns.  The training will be held on 6 July from 7:30 to 9:30 pm in Griffith, ACT.

Training as a technical official is a great way to support your swimmer.  Results from swimming meets and club nights will not be uploaded to the National Results Database unless there are a minimum number of accredited officials on pool deck for the meet.  The more people we have trained the more we can share the workload and ensure that times are ‘official’.

If you are new to swimming, judges of stroke are the officials who walk up and down the swimming pool to ensure that the rules are observed  for each stroke during the race, at the turns and at the finish. The theory session for judge of stroke can be completed in one session of approximately 2 hours, followed by on the job training.

If you are interested in this training please email Jenny Dunstan at atscc@bigpond.com as there is some pre-reading to do which Jenny will email to you.
