The final arrangements are as follows:
Bus will depart the LeisurePlex overflow car park (at the roundabout turn left and follow the road down past the barrier) at 6.45pm on Friday 18 September;
Bus will return on Sunday 20 September at 3.00pm.
The weekend will consist of 2 wet activities on Saturday and a dry activity on Sunday, so please pack accordingly. On Saturday night there are fun activities, including a quiz with a pizza banquet for supper.
A tuck shop will operate on Saturday night only (no more than £1.50 is needed) so if you wish you may send the children away with treats for Friday evening.
It is advisable that children should not bring any portable devices that contain a camera, incl. mobile phones, as under child protection policies these cannot be kept in the accommodation. If children do arrive with such items they will be removed and kept in a secure area and returned at the end of the weekend or if needed to contact home.
If you require any further information then do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to an enjoyable weekend and trust that the weather will be kind.
Bursaries are awarded to young, up and coming sports stars, who have represented Ulster, Northern Ireland or Ireland age group levels. Please see link to form below.

Dear All, swimmers and parents,
welcome back to a new year of swimming.
I hope everyone enjoyed their summer holidays, missed swimming and are ready and raring to go!
A huge congratulations to all our swimmers who took part in competitions over the summer.
In particular Caoimhe Quinn from NSS who competed at the British Youth Championships in Sheffield. Well done Caoimhe.
Our Club Captain has done some travelling this year too for her swimming!!
Rachel was at the Youth Olympic Festival in Georgia in June and the FINA World Championships in Kazan Russia. She is currently in Singapore at the FINA World Junior Championships and will then be travelling to Samoa for the 2015 Commonwealth youth Games. A huge congratulations to Rachel and good luck in Samoa x
Could I remind all parents and swimmers to reread the Code of Conduct for swimmers please. Everyone will have received a copy previously. We also have a signed copy.
Regarding changing rooms could I ask all parents to inform children that they may use the new family/ group changing rooms. The changing rooms only fit 3 or 4 swimmers comfortably and I ask that swimmers be made aware of this. As always whilst the swimmers are getting changed they are still representing Lisburn City Swimming Club and should therefore behave accordingly.
A quick reminder for all regarding mobile phones too. Mobile phones are not permitted poolside, this includes galas, please remind all swimmers about this, thank you.
As always if there are any changes you need to make with the rotas, the easiest way to do this is talking with someone from your squad.
Thanking you all for your continued support and I hope to see you all at the Club BBQ.

The Ardnabannon trip has now been finalised and the activities are being organised by the centre staff. The coach has been booked but timings will be confirmed nearer the time. Unfortunately some of my parent volunteers have had to withdraw due to work and family commitments, therefore I now require the assistance of both a male and female parent volunteer to act as a chaperone on all activities (you must be willing to get involved as well) and monitor them when back at the centre (all activities are supervised by the centre staff).
The weekend is free, the craic is mighty, the food is the best but sleep is at a premium.
If you would like any further information then do not hesitate to contact me.
