Web site changes

The club website and hosting changed effective 2 January.  During and following the change some areas of the site may be temporarily unavailable (e.g. the Members Pages etc).  These issues should be resolved within the next few days.  For any questions regarding this, please contact the web administrator, Mark Eveleigh.

Update 1: Members Pages are now working.  Teachers and Committee areas are not currently available.

Update 2: Any saved bookmarks to the Members Pages area (e.g. for access to PB Lists) will need to be updated as the page addresses for these have changed slightly with the new hosting.

Update 3: A number of old and unreferenced files have been removed.  The committee and teachers secure areas were out of date (files from around 2007/2008) have been removed from the site (contact Mark if any of these are still required).

 

Vacant Role - Volunteers Needed

The position of Marketing/Communications Officer remains unfilled again - could you write up some gala/match reports about our wonderful swimmers/polo players and send to the press?  This need not be a committee role.  Please speak to one of the committee if you could help to publicise the great things that are going on at our club.

 

Fixtures - More Volunteers Requested

Lynne Stanbury and Roxie Chapman have kindly agreed to continue as fixtures secretaries but would appreciate having more help.  Anyone interested in finding out more about this, please speak to Lynne/Roxie or to one of the committee members. Thank you

Payments for Galas

Where the club supports a gala and entries are invited from WSMSC swimmers, cheques should be made out to "WSMSC" please and not to the club hosting the gala. It is the norm that cheques are only banked either once full acceptance has been received that we have got our swimmers into the meet or at the time of the meet itself. We don't bank cheques at the time you submit your entry in case of rejections/scratches.

 

Somerset ASA News

A section has been added at the end of this page to show the latest news from the Somerset ASA web site (News page).

 

PB List

The Club's Management Committee have produced a new PB List policy which can be viewed here.

For individual updates to the PB List in line with the policy above, please email pblist@weston-super-mare-swimming-club.co.uk

 

Sets for school swimming

Millie has created training sets for club swimmers in school years 5/6 that go swimming with their school and need something more challenging than the leisure centre teacher/school teacher can provide.  This is available on the Squads page.

 

VIDEO STROKE ANALYSIS

Over the coming months the clubs coaches will be videoing swimmers to help them improve their stroke technique, turns and starts.

Video analysis is being used by more and more clubs as an aid to coaching and teaching as it allows the swimmer to see exactly what they are doing correctly and incorrectly.

If you would rather that your child is not videoed you should email Rachel Aldington to let her know, if you have any queries on this please email the club chairman, Giles Moroney.

FUNDRAISING THE EASY WAY!

Please see Newsletter 4 for details of how you can help WSMSC raise 5000 every year just by internet searching and shopping - at no extra cost or hassle to yourself. Please get online and register as a supporter of Weston-Super-Mare Swimming Club, then click Find & Remind to get an immediate 50p towards club funds to paste easyfundraising into your toolbar. Then, log into your easy account each time you go online and conduct internet searches via easysearch.org.uk (based on yahoo, bing and ask) instead of google and earn us 0.5 pence for every completed search (don't panic into thinking it's not working - the stats on searching take a couple of weeks to show in the club and your individual account). Please ask friends and relations to follow us also, and get them to click on Find & Remind. If you're logged into your easyfundraising account, any retailer who offers donations to causes like ours (there are thousands, like Amazon, Argos, Expedia, ebay, Tesco, etc, etc) will automatically make the donation to us - just do what you normally do, but via easysearch.org.uk

The opportunities that this presents for the club are massive - so long as we all buy into it (metaphorically speaking, as it doesn't cost a penny). Please join and then get searching! Thank you.  MA.
