Swim Ireland – Jon Rudd Regional Roadshows

IMG_0696Our National Performance Director is on the road and coming to a town near you!
Our Swim Ireland NPD Roadshows are aimed at providing information for all people who have an interest in or an investment in the future of swimming in Ireland. Swimmers, families & parents, coaches, technical officials, helpers and committee members are invited to attend one of the Roadshows below – even if it is one outside of your own Region because the date or location suits you better!

Tuesday 14th March 2017 – ‘The Leinster Roadshow’ (held at the Campus Conference Centre on the National Sports Campus in Dublin)
Wednesday 22nd March 2017 – ‘The Munster Roadshow’ (held at the Cork Airport Hotel)
Tuesday 28th March 2017 – ‘The Connacht Roadshow’ (held at the McWilliam Hotel in Claremorris)
Wednesday 29th March 2017 – ‘The Ulster Roadshow’ (held at the Lisburn Civic Centre in Lisburn)
All Roadshows will start at 7.00pm and will last for approximately 1 hour, with opportunities to ask Jon questions afterwards.

Jon will talk of his plans for the nation at Regional, National and International levels – some of which will have an immediate impact on swimming in Ireland and some of which will be more visible as we approach the next Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020. You can’t afford to miss it can you?!

People are asked to pre-register for one of the Roadshows so that we have an idea of numbers for each venue. Jon Rudd Roadshow pre – registration form.

Aquasprints Information

Below is a provisional team list for the away meets for aquasprints. Unfortunately when going away to a smaller pool there is only 3 lanes to swim in per team. I have chosen 6 swimmers per age group for boys and girls, meaning that we can have a strong presence but also have three relays going at the same time. It’s really important you Inform myself or Kelly if any swimmer is not able to swim in any of the upcoming aquasprints as there are plenty of other swimmers keen to take spaces.

the dates for following aquasprints are as follows,

Templemore – 11th march- in Bangor pool
Ards – Friday 31st March – In ards pool
Banbridge – April 8th in Banbridge Pool

After these galas we will see if we end up in the A or B final and where it is being held. Kelly has sorted out transportation for each venue, please let her know if you are getting the bus or not. I highly recommend the team travel together the atmosphere is great fun, there will be music and a lot of chanting on the bus on the way up with sweets and talking, if coaches and some parents travel on the bus all the better, however Kelly needs to know the exact numbers so she can make sure there is space as we have only got a small seater bus but if everyone goes on the bus we will need to amend it and the atmosphere will be electric.

I may not be able to attend certain meets due to prior commitments with waterpolo, however Sophia, Paige, Josh and Alex Haskins along with Fiona Cash will be there to support and help, I will make sure everything is in place before the day of each meet.

The last two aquasprints have been wonderful and the progress between the first and second has really shown so lets keep the good work up and continue to rise.   Team List away meets

Regards Nathan
