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:-
Autumn has seen the retirement of several of our teachers. We rely on volunteers (usually parents) to train as teachers and support us on Poolside. Could you be a Swimming Teacher? Funding is available to help with the cost of training and once qualified, there is plenty of opportunity to use your newly-gained qualification and earn a bit of pocket money outside the club. For more information speak to Debi or Lee.
Our Committee has gained a couple of new members (thanks to Rachel & Dan - and now Judith) but there are lots of jobs which need doing as well. Of course we would love more people to join our (very friendly) Committee but if you can't commit to this, could you perhaps take on one of the many jobs which need doing for instance:
Sending out emails/communications
Publicity (eg with local papers)
Rachel Milroy will be available over the next few weeks to chat to potential volunteers about what is involved so please think about helping out. The Club relies on volunteers in order to exist.
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!
