Important Health and Safety information. Please tell your swimmer

With the equipment cages currently being out at the leisure pool the swimmers have been going through the barriers to get their stuff but on returning through the barrier they have not been closing them. This is a serious issue as a water area is being left unattended due to the barrier being left open and must stop immediately

Some swimmers are not storing their gear in the cages, but leaving or throwing it around the cages and all over the floor. This is causing a trip hazard and all swimmers must be responsible for ensuring their equipment is safely stored.

If these two problem continue, the LVLP management will have no alternative but to remove the cages altogether, which will result in swimmers not being able to store their gear in Leisureplex.

A final reminder for all swimmers DO NOT  leave the middle gate open between the competition pool and the village changing area.

Club championships and changes to training

The annual club championships will take place this Tuesday 4th and Thursday 6th and next Tuesday 11th and Thursday 13th at the LVLP.

Please find below a revised programme for each session with start lists of swimmers in each event.

2014 club champs session 1

2014 club champs session 2

2014 club champs session 3

2014 club champs session 4

If you have not already volunteered to help at a session then please come down to poolside before the session starts and someone will be able to show you what to do. It is a great opportunity to learn a bit more and see what it feels like to be on poolside. Everyone needs to help and lack of experience is not a reason not to volunteer. Any new volunteer will be paired with someone experienced.

There will be NO squad training for any squad on the evenings of the club championships.
