NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2010

Notes  from the Coach

I took up the coaching duties half way through August and looked forward to Jeff returning from holidays in September.  I will be coaching on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Jeff will be coaching on Saturdays.   Heather Adams will continue to write programs when she is available. 
Numbers have been fairly steady during this time and my grateful thanks to Graham Cragg, Greg, Linda, Sue Minson and Liz who have helped on pool deck.  All swimmers are very positive about training and particularly positive about the morning teas on Saturdays!
 
I am arranging someone each session to take the stretches to enable me to mark the roll and therefore be ready to start on time.
 
Plans are underway to organise the Coogee swims on Sunday mornings as we get closer to Christmas.

Notes from the Registrar
 
Welcome back to Sue Minson who has rejoined after a two year sabbatical which brings our total membership to 44.
 
Members’ completed aerobic swims are recorded on paper summary sheets.  I will download the club membership data files from ClubsOnline that are used with the Aerobics program. After loading them into the program I will  input everyone’s aerobic swims for this year to calculate their points.

Aerobic swims to be used in the calculation of the Club Aerobics High Points winners will finish at the end of October.  National Aerobics continue through until the end of December.

Christmas End of Year Awards Dinner – 11 December 2010

A reminder that this event is still on the Agenda for the club and anyone who has not registered their interest yet there is still time.  Contact Greg on 94593845 or mrgfrey@iinet.net.au  or Lexie on 9398 6857 or lepete@bigpond.com.au 

Note from Club Captain re Aerobic Swims

Jeff has requested that anyone who has not  yet completed their aerobic swims to check what swims they have left to do as time is limited now.  To find this out  or for any further information please contact either Jeff on 9497 4059 or jeff@westernirrigation.net.au or Graham on 94951665 or grhicks@bigpond.com.  It would be disappointing to miss out on points if there are only a couple of swims to complete.

CONGRATULATIONS TO Jacinta Schoof and her husband who are expecting a baby in December. We look forward to hearing the good news. 

Officiating Courses.

The next course is scheduled for Saturday 23 October.  Registration form and information are in the MSWA website for interested members.  This is an information course which will help members who are unsure of the rules as to time keeping etc. 

GET WELL SOON to Sue Minson

That’s the good news!!
