Club Night 4 ~ 28/10/2016
The fourth Club Night for the 2016 / 2017 summer season will be held on Friday, 28 October 2016. The rules for nominations, and the behaviour expected from both parents and children on these club nights, are outlined in the CLUB HANDBOOK.
The Gates to the pool will open at 5 pm with racing commencing at 5.30pm sharp.
An event nomination sheet is located at the Swim Club's office (under the deck of the hall). Your children should nominate for events for Club Night 4 BEFORE 5pm on Thursday, 27 October 2016. This allows the committee enough time to enter the swimmers participating onto the computer, for it to sort swimmers into races with other swimmers of similar ability. PLEASE do NOT nominate for races that will not be competed in. Empty lanes only slow down the proceedings on the night. Thank you to all for keeping the Club grounds clean and rubbish free.
Events for Club Night 4 (in correct stroke order) are: 13m / 25m / 50m Freestyle, Butterfly, Breaststroke and Backstroke. SPECIALITY event 100M Butterfly.
There is a canteen which sells burgers, wraps, toasties, sausage on bread etc. and ice blocks and drinks. The BBQ cooking will finish earlier in the night this season so make sure you place your orders for hot food early into the night. Parents are asked to please fulfill duties as timekeepers / marshallers / in canteen. The Family Roster can be found HERE.
See you then!
WELCOME to our Club!
Dear Parents and Members
Welcome to the 2016/2017 season of the Holland Park State School Swimming Club.
This Swim Club at Holland Park State School has been running for many years and has seen some fantastic young swimmers come up through the ranks and develop in to fine athletes. Not only does the Club strive for excellence with our competitive swimmers, but also prides itself on developing confidence, participation and fostering the “have a go” attitude in all our members.
For all returning families, we look forward to another season filled with fun, excitement and achievement.
To all new members, the committee extends a warm welcome and hope that this is the beginning of a long association with our club.
Through the tireless efforts and expert guidance of our Coach Phil Hughes, the Club’s competitive swimmers have gone from strength to strength over the recent years. This can be seen in our most recent results – coming from Division 4 in the 2010/11 Season to our achievement of 8th Place in Division 2 at our most recent Metropolitan meet in July 2016.
Like all amateur sporting organisations, the club is run by a hard working volunteer committee and parents/carers who selflessly give up their time to foster the development of our swimmers.
Each club night, the club employs a roster system where a family will be rostered on to a particular club night and duty – whether it be Canteen, Timekeeping or helping on the BBQ, each role is important to the successful running of the Club nights. If a family is unavailable for that particular night, it is crucial that they organise to swap with someone else so we can run the night smoothly.
Finally, I would ask that all parents read the Club Handbook to ensure that everyone understands how our Club works.
As a committee we would like to extend a warm welcome and look forward to your involvement in the Club.
