As Lisburn City prepare for the major competitions between now and the end of the season we, as an executive, recognise the value and experience swimmers have when they travel from Lisburn to the meet as a Team.
To facilitate that happening we must have volunteers who are trained as level 1 Team Managers to coordinate and accompany the trip.The number of Team managers currently trained or in training is not sufficient to enable all qualifiers to be team managed at competitions.
Due to the ongoing success and fast swimming times our teams are growing and our Division 1 team for Age and Youth championships in the summer may well amount to 30 swimmers requiring 2/3 team managers.
If your swimmer currently swims in National Squad, National Junior Squad or Age Group 1 we ask you to consider participating in the course mentioned below. On completion an experienced team manager will mentor you until you are confident to lead a team.
Many swimmers in the national and national Junior Squad have been team managed by volunteers on 2,3,4 occasions and we appeal, in particular, to the parents of these swimmers to consider sharing the workload and attending this course.

The 11th Safer Internet Day will be celebrated worldwide on Tuesday 11 February 2014. The theme for the day is: “Let’s create a better internet together”.
Webwise is leading the Safer Internet Campaign in Ireland for this UK based project. We are all fully aware of the global nature of the internet where, unlike face to face contact, social media messages, images and information follow us around in our daily lives. This is the same for young people today – and we must understand how to make sure their experiences are positive and rewarding.
Safer Internet Day offers the opportunity to focus on both the creative things that children and young people are doing online, as well as the role and responsibility that all stakeholders have in helping to create a better internet.
Safer Internet Day is organised each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people.
www.WatchYourSpace.ie is a Webwise site specifically aimed at teens

Many thanks to everyone who generously contributed to Marks leaving gift. It was an emotional farewell as Jack Beattie (Club President) presented Mark with his gifts of an iPad (no excuses for not staying in touch) and a club shirt signed by the swimmers and coaches. The aquasprints captains also presented Mark with a fantastic caricature drawn by Sharon Cox. We wish him every success in his new job in Canada.
