New Season – Phased return to training
Josh has again recommended a phased start to the new season – see below regarding the morning sessions. The reasons for this are:
- to allow the swimmers to fully recover from a long 2016-2017 season
- recognising that during the rest/low intensity months of August and September swimmers often hit an accelerated phase of growth which should be catered for
- acknowledges that the start of September also brings changes academically to many of the swimmers and the phasing in allows swimmers the opportunity to adjust to these changes before commencing full training
Therefore, at the start of the 2017-2018 season the morning training sessions will be phased in as follows:
W/C 18th September
– No Monday morning
– Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings as usual
W/C 25th September
– Full Training Commences
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
