DONATIONS REQUIRED : ACT Championships

Attention All Members,

We’ve been given the opportunity to run a raffle at the ACT Championships on Saturday, 5 August 2017,  in which we are truly thankful for as every fundraising activity helps to offset the ongoing costs of running our Club.

Volunteers are also required to help with roles on the Saturday, such as Selling Programs, Recording, Medals Table, etc, and if you are able to help out, please contact Marcus on president@wodenswimclub.org.au.

If you are able to donate raffle items, please place them in the basket on pooldeck (during training sessions), or hand it to our coaching staff or any members of the Executive.  

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Regards
The Executive

NEW BRONZE COACH : Jasmine Thornton

We would like to welcome Jasmine Thornton to the Woden Coaching Team.  Jasmine is taking on the shared Role of Bronze Coach with Madeleine Fleming.

Message from Coach Jasmine:   As a swimmer myself, starting competitive swimming at the age of 9, I am excited to be also a member of the Coaching crew.  I am very passionate about swimming and will continue to push myself to achieve better, and as for challenges …. Challenges are the doorways to excellence!

A few years ago I was coached by Sue Knight, who left an everlasting impression on me, so much so, that I have always wanted to become a swimming coach.  The impact coaches can have in the life of others is undeniable, and I want to give a little something back to the community that gives me so much.  I hope to build character within the athletes I train, to assist them in becoming the best version of themselves, inside and outside of the water.

I am excited to coach alongside Steve, Maddie and Bethany and hope to learn from their continued mentoring, guidance and support, which will no doubt enable me to advance my coaching education and become the coach that Sue Knight was to me.

“Decide what you want!   Write it down!   Make a plan!   Work on it … Every…Single… Day! … And don’t forget to have fun doing it!”
