New WSMSC Post-Easter Meet party for swimmers and parents

Our usual post-Easter Meet get together for WSMSC Members won't be at Pizza Hut this year - they have let us down at the last minute.

However, in its place we have organised something much better - an extensive and lovely buffet (that does include pizza!) from an excellent firm of local caterers for 6.00 pm on Easter Sunday in the Bar at Hutton Moor.

Drinks will be supplied. Please come along to unwind and socialize after the meet (the last session is due to finish just before 6pm). There will be a small charge of £2.00 per person, payable on entry to the bar.

We really look forward to seeing swimmers and parents there.  Please make it a date in your diary.

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.
