Volunteers Wanted

Dear Parents,

Have you ever sat at training or at a gala and thought ‘I wonder how I can get involved’?

Our aim is to train your child to achieve whatever they wish to achieve, be it a PB, county or regional time and to help them be who they want to be. There is no better feeling than a swimmer coming up to you post-race with a big smile on their face; “I got a PB!!!”, or your child winning a medal.

Putteridge Swimming club could not continue to operate and achieve this aim without the support of our volunteers.

There are many volunteering roles at Putteridge swimming club and volunteering opportunities are open to anyone over the age of 16.

  • Teaching and Coaching
  • Team Manager
  • Time Keeping and Officiating
  • Poolside Helper
  • Supporting Home Galas

Letter from Chairman

Dear Putteridge Swimming Club (PSC) Member,

I am writing to welcome new members and to thank you all for bearing with us over the last few weeks and forthcoming weeks as we continue to make substantial changes to some methods of operation.

PSC continues to grow from strength to strength and this is due entirely to the tireless efforts of our coaching staff, volunteers, parents and swimmers who all continue to perform to the very highest standards.

As you may be aware, we have been working very closely with our facility partner, Active Luton for over a year now, in an effort to increase our available pooltime and dry-side training facilities. This is to enable us to deliver both the quality and quantity of coaching you all deserve...

Check Club Champs Entries

We have noticed that some parents have accidentally entered their swimmers for club champs races that are outside their age range.

Only children aged 8 and under at the end of December may enter the 25m races. Those children can not enter the 50m, 100m or 200m races.

If you have entered your younger children into the older age group races please edit your entry and remove them otherwise the system will charge you entries for those races but your child will not be able to swim those events

Many thanks

Could I have as many Coaches poolside as possible please as well as a member of welfare in case of any issues. I cannot be there as I have to work.

Deadline for Member’s Registration

The deadline for registration onto the new online system was the end of May – a month ago.

Unfortunately, there are 18 of you who have not registered or responded to Dean’s emails. Please can you deal with this as a matter of urgency as it has taken Dean 3 months to bring in the new system and this still has a massive knock on effect to Sarah our treasurer.

These two people spend at least 20 hours volunteering per week for PSC on top of their full time jobs. They are implementing a system to help streamline all the admin the club generates.

For those competing mainstream, it is critical that you need to register, as next gala we enter will be through the online system and they will miss out on entries to galas.

So PLEASE can you do so urgently so we can move on and deal with other pressing...
