We hope you are all safe and well. As we are working on our return to water plans with the other clubs and Scottish Swimming we wanted to provide you with a further update.
Firstly, we would like to thank Hazel Glen, for all her hard work, enthusiasm and energy that she brought to the club in her roles as President and Coach. Hazel is unfortunately no longer able to continue in these roles due to work commitments. She will be a great loss to the club, but has promised to continue to provide support where possible especially in these challenging times. Rachel McCavish, has volunteered to step forward and take on the role of President for Bo’ness ASC. If there is anyone who would like to join the committee, please let us know, everyone is welcome.
Getting our children back into to the water training and doing what they love is going to require more volunteers from parents and carers. One of our key priorities is establishing a pool of helpers who can ensure the safety of our children entering and exiting the pool, and following the Scottish Swimming guidelines to keep everyone safe. These helpers will be Covid-19 Officers Team. There is a Scottish Swimming short online course to provide training for those helping. The more helpers we have the better and the less time that we are asking from you. Please contact us if you are able to offer help. Please do step forward as without your support we cannot return to swimming.
In order to understand our current membership and to enable to coaches to plan for a return we would like to ask if you planning on returning to swimming? We completely understand that this is a difficult time and you may have questions or concerns. There is no pressure to return, if you want to delay coming back for any reason your place in the club will be waiting for you. If you have any concerns about cost then please get in touch with Graeme or another member of the committee and we will see how we can help. There is a lot of planning that the Coaches need to do to get us back to the water and part of that is around understanding who is returning. We would like you to complete this form if your contact details have changed or if you are planning on leaving the club. It is really important that we have your correct contact details for contact tracing or any last minute changes to training.
