Development Meet Entry Time Changes

There have been changes made to the Country Championships program impacting 50m form strokes. Swimming ACT has amended the break times applying to the 50m form stroke events for the development meets this summer. The change effects swimmers age 10 and over and, as altered times are faster, some swimmers who were faster than the previous breaktime may want to enter these events.
As a result of these changes the closing date for entries into the Ginninderra Development meet have been extended until 6pm Wednesday 15th October.
Please check for the updated meet flyer in “Meet Information”  or click here

Woden Main Meet 22/23 November 2014

All club members,

Woden will be hosting our main meet at the AIS on the weekend of 22 & 23 November. It is necessary that all members make the effort to attend. Volunteers will be needed over the two days to help ensure the smooth running of the meet.

We will also be looking for any donations that can be used either in raffle prizes or for the catering over the weekend. This meet is one of the main sources of fundraising for the club so please donate something, no matter how small. Donations can be handed to our coaching staff, any members of the Executive or we will also endeavour to place a basket on pooldeck during training sessions.

We’re looking forward to the meet and will keep you updated as the day nears. Hope to see all of our members there.

Regards

The Executive

Upcoming Gold & Silver Coaching

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.

Regards

The Executive

ACT winter Championships update

ACT Winter Championships are not expected to finish until almost 7pm on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday. Please notify Swimming ACT of withdrawals ahead of the weekend, if known, or at the pool (as usual, there will be withdrawal sheets at the Recorders Table) or by email across the weekend (lwuth@hups.net).

2014 ACT Winter Championships Timeline

Pool entry:

The pool entry fee being charge by the AIS for this meet is $3.20 for swimmers and $2.70 for spectators. Note: is not the normal entry fee applying from 1 July so don’t expect to see the entry fees this low again.

There will be an express lane for swimmer entry provided they have the correct change i.e. $3.20. Any swimmer without the correct change will have to line up and go through the normal reception area and this could be slow.

Warm up:

Warm up has been extended by 15 minutes. On Saturday warm up will commence at 9:45am while on Sunday it will start at 8:00am.

There will be two warm up sessions:

  • The first 25 minutes of warm up will be for ages 12 & under (Saturday 9:45am; Sunday 8:00am)
  • The second 30 minutes of warm up will be for ages 13 & over (Saturday 10:15am; Sunday 8:30am)
