Appeal for poolside helpers

Can you spare an hour a week, or an hour every two weeks, on a regular basis?

As you know, CCSC is run entirely by volunteers.  This includes the coaching team, who give up their time willingly, and have stayed with us despite frequent offers from other clubs.

For each training session the coaches plan an objective which the swimmers work towards through a series of exercises or “sets” (eg 100m front crawl arms only, 100m front crawl legs only, 100m front crawl full stroke) appropriate for each group swimming.

The lanes are managed by poolside helpers who are given the sets by the coaches, explain them to the swimmers, and help keep the swimmers on track, so leaving the coaches free to give specific advice and support to individual swimmers.  The more experienced poolside helpers can manage two lanes, but every session should have at least three helpers.

Over the years our number of poolside helpers has dwindled so that in some sessions now we have none at all, and the coaches spend as much time lane managing as coaching.  Obviously, this is frustrating both for the swimmers and the coaches.

So we are desperately looking for more poolside helpers.  If you can commit to helping out at a particular session each week, or if two or three of you can get together and make a shared commitment, we would really like to hear from you.  Darren has very kindly agreed to run a training course for new poolside helpers, which will be held in the Ravenna Room at the Westgate Centre from 2 – 5pm on Saturday 21 March.  If you would like to sign up please email Helen Bond at helenbond869@btinternet.com, or pass a message through the Friday desk.

Please volunteer.  If club parents can’t offer more support to the coaches, we could lose them.
