Ardnabannon 2016

Everything is in place now for our trip next weekend.

Remember the entire trip is a NUT FREE ZONE.

We leave Friday 7pm Salto carpark, returning Sunday afternoon 3pm.

Ardnabannon request we do bouldering, high wire and adventure walk.

Sophia, Bea, Fiona and Alex will arrive on Saturday morning in time for the first activity and I’ll confirm that time with them directly.

I’ve to order the chippy supper on Tuesday at the latest for the swimmers and adults who are staying over on the Saturday night.
If I don’t have your swimmers preference by Tuesday I’ll have to select for them.

Perhaps I’ll see some of you at the meeting on Tuesday evening. Please say hi so I can start putting names to faces.

5 sleeps!

NO food allowed from outside eateries in the Leisureplex

Dear Club members and swimmers

It has been brought to our attention that club members are coming into the Leisureplex building with food from various eateries close by. This is NOT permitted and a number of complaints have now been raised.

We have been informed by the Leisureplex Management Team that if members continue to do this, they will not be allowed to enter the Leisureplex for an indefinite period. They have informed us the area is covered by CCTV.

Therefore we would stress the importance in this to ALL squads as we do not wish to inform any member that they will be excluded from the centre and in turn their training.

Dear Parents and swimmers

Welcome back! As the new season has just started, we would like to invite you all to a Club evening next Tuesday 6th September 16 6:15pm to 8:00pm. Lagan Room 1.
The purpose of the evening is to provide you with essential information regarding the Club and what is expected of everyone involved. There is some documentation which must also be completed for every member and these will be issued on the evening.

There will also be a short presentation by our New Head Coach, Mr Martin McGann to explain what will be happening within the Club during the season and his proposals for the coming years.

We will also be taking payment of Club fees from anyone who wishes to pay by cheque – sorry, but no cash payments will be accepted.

We the Executive, would encourage you all to attend this evening & we look forward to seeing you.

Kind regards

Ardnabannon 2016

Hi all,

10 sleeps!
Few details, long email.
Team managers – Ben Allison and Karen Haskins.
Parents helpers – Jen Hopkins and ? ( I’ll update you)

Coach arrives Salto car park 6.45pm, Friday 9 September and will leave at 7pm SHARP for Ardnabannon
Coach will return to Salto car park at approx 3pm Sunday 11 September.
Please reclaim your swimmers promptly!

The dorms have been allocated with team managers and leaders strategically positioned to be of assistance should their help be required overnight!

All food will be provided by the staff at Ardnabannon apart from treat supper on Saturday evening.
Choice – kids nuggets and chips, kids burger and chips, kids sausage and chips, kids fish fingers and chips. All will come with a soft drink
Please forward swimmers choice by email so I can order in advance.
Helpers can negotiate for food by email also!

Swimmers are welcome to bring their own sweeties and drinks for their midnight secret parties ( like we don’t know what they’re up to) but please please please remember our Ardnabannon trip has a very important rule.


Our OVERDAY activities have been selected by the young people and will include, high wiring, abseiling and bouldering. Yeahhhhhhhhhh!

Fiona and Alex, club captains, are hoping to attend on the Saturday to have a bit of craic with the younger swimmers. I have asked Martins permission for that to happen as they may have to miss a bit of morning training to attend so everything crossed for a positive response.
If you need to speak to me text me and I’ll ring you back when there’s adequate supervision for my group.
You can email me also and I’ll get back to you when I have time.

Mobiles for swimmers are not a good idea as they’ll get lost or destroyed but as our trip is all part of training and preparation for competition trips in the future parents and swimmers must decide what’s best for the young person.

Final note.
Over the weekend at times there will be 23 young swimmers, 4 adults and 2 club captains.
We will be representing Lisburn City Swimming Club at all times so it’s important for each one of us, adults and young people, to be respectful of each other, the staff of Ardnabannon and coach driver.
We are affiliated with swim Ireland and as trained team managers we will submit a full report of our trip to the club executive on our return.

I’m really looking forward to the weekend, hope all the swimmers are too.
I’m sure I’ll remember something else as soon as I hit send.

Any queries just ask.

Karen X

PS final call for remaining forms and payment. Kx

Welcome Back

Dear All, welcome back to the new season, I hope you had a happy and restful summer break.

I hope to get to speak with all squads and if the opportunity arises, parents also, within the next couple of weeks. A huge congratulations to our new club captains Fiona Cash and Alex Haskins. If you don’t know who they are, they are part of the national senior squad and are there too to help the younger swimmers if they have any questions or suggestions about the club.

 Please find attached the new supervision rotas, which are an important part of us holding on to our Swim Ireland Clubmark Award. Our club exists for the children and they can only enjoy all that swimming brings, with all of us parents volunteering. Thank you all so much for your continued support with the supervision rota. If any one has any queries about the how and why please feel free to contact me. If you need to swop a session then can you first try and do this with another parent, then your parent squad rep and only me as a last resort.                                                                                                                            EVENING SUPERVISION SEPT 2016 (1) EARLY MORNING ROTA SEPT 2016

Good luck to you all this coming year.

 Ciara Maginess Club Children’s Officer (CCO)
