YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!
Hertford Swimming club is dependent on volunteers to stay afloat. Right now we need help. Could you be the one to plug one of our holes? We need:-
Most of our teachers are also parents. As their children grow up and move on, inevitably we loose them and we need a steady stream of new teachers coming through. Could that be you? The Club will support you with funding for training in return for a commitment to teach at least once a week. Once qualified, you have a marketable skill and you can earn yourself a bit of pin money. Please speak to Debbie or Lee
Our Committee also needs new blood. If you can't commit to teaching, could you join our committee? We meet approx every 6 weeks. Anyone with enthusiasm welcome. Speak to any Committee Member
We also need qualified Officials to act as Timekeepers, Judges, Starters and even Referees. There are plenty of training courses available. We can not take part in Galas unless we can supply Officials. If you are interested please speak to Jane.
PLEASE THINK ABOUT HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CLUB. WITHOUT THE PRACTICAL SUPPORT OF PARENTS WE CAN NOT SURVIVE.
HERTFORD NEEDS YOU NOW!
