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.
ARDNABANNON IS A NUT FREE ZONE, NO NUTS, NO NUT PRODUCTS.
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 this happens SATURDAY WILL BE LOUD, HILARIOUS AND VERY WET! Be warned!
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.
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.
PS final call for remaining forms and payment. Kx
