New Earswick Swimming Pool Closure Update
We have received a letter from Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust to advise us that they have taken the decision to close New Earswick Swimming Pool in March next year.
The committee will be discussing this at their next meeting, and will be looking at the options available. We fully expect to be able to continue to run our swimming lessons on a Friday evening, and so this news should not have a big impact on our timetable.
We will be in touch about this as soon as we have had an opportunity to formalise the details.
Nutritional Talk for parents of YCBC training squad swimmers
Sunday 19th November 3:30pm at Poppleton Sports Club
Please make a date in your diary for an informative talk on nutrition. The talk will be given by Andrew Shepherd the lead nutritionist of the Swim England programme. The talk is aimed at the parents of YCBC traing squad swimmers, with a view to giving useful nutritional advice to parents for ‘race day’ and whilst your swimmer is in training.
An appeal for volunteers in our Teaching Section
As you may know, the teaching of our swimming lessons at York City Baths Club is provided on solely on a voluntarily basis by our qualified teachers, assisted by poolside helpers.
Presently, there is a need for additional teaching and lifeguarding provision – if you are:
- a Level 1 or Level 2 swimming teacher
- interested in training to gain these qualifications (age 16 years and over)
- a qualified lifeguard
- interested in being a poolside helper (age 14 years and over)
If you are and can spare any of your valuable time, we would very much like to hear from you!
This includes any swimmers in our squads who may be interested in gaining additional qualifications – many of our swimmers have, and continue to, use their knowledge of stroke technique to make excellent teachers, a skill and qualification which they can take with them as they move on in their education.
Furthermore, do you know anyone outside the club who may be interested in volunteering, or have any useful contacts that the club could explore?
If you are able to help, please contact Shelley Postchild, YCBC Teaching Coordinator, at email@example.com
