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.

The Lisburn Triathlon is taking place on the 9th August 2015 from 9am. I was wondering if your club would like to supply a couple of volunteers to help with the pool section. This would just involve counting the number of lengths that the athletes have completed and keeping them right as to when to exit the pool, this would only last a couple of hours and will be finished before 12.
Please let me know if you would be interested if anyone would be interested in helping out as it would be greatly appreciated!
Look forward to hearing from you

To clarify, there will now be no Tuesday morning training session.
There will be training in the NAC Dublin at 16:00 for those already there, or Training in Lisburn from 17:00 – 19:00 for those travelling down later.

Swim Ulster are running pre season skills camps as follows-
Mon 10th August- Fri 14th August- Finn Valley Leisure Centre, Stranorlar, County Donegal
Mon 17th August- Fri 21st August- Cookstown Leisure Centre
Flyers for these two initiatives are attached, they are a great opportunity to break up summer holidays and pick up a few technical skills to bring back into club training. The first week for some clubs is also an opportunity to get swimmers in the water before the Community games.
