British Swimming Judge 1 course - starting July 2013
The MCASA Swimming Officials Committee is to run a British Swimming Judge 1 course starting in July 2013 details as follows:
Workshop dates & times
Saturday 6th July 2013 10.00 – 13.00
Saturday 14th September 2013 10.00 – 13.00
Saturday 12th October 2013 10.00 – 13.00

Please note that all three Workshops must be attended in order to complete the course.
Maximum number on the course is 20, first come first served!
The Course Leader will be Ralph Shortland to whom applications should be sent to as soon as possible, initially by email email@example.com so that he can reserve a place and send the ASA application form. The cost for the course is £8 per person and all candidates must be ASA registered prior to submitting an application form. (ASA registrations are always busy so if there is a problem getting ASA membership details prior to the actual course start date, as long as it is confirmed that an application for ASA membership has been sent by the club, then that should be ok)
Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will be on Tuesday 18th June 2013 at The Staines and Laleham Sports and Leisure Facility (also known as Staines Hockey Club) starting at 19:45.
Nominations are invited for all positions on the Management Committee.
Please note that all Main Pool swimming on the 18th June will be cancelled.

Main Pool New Swimmer Assessment
We regularly hold assessments for swimmers wishing to join the club. Assessments are held on a regular basis at Spelthorne Leisure Centre. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07757 896565 with the swimmer’s name, date of birth and two telephone numbers. Evenings are not the best time to call, as coaches are busy at training sessions.
We currently have a small number of spaces in our 2-day teaching scheme ideally suited for children between the ages of 4 and 8. For more information please go to the 'More Information' page of the SSC 'Learn-to-Swim' website. To arrange an assessment, please call Kai on 07914 491442.

Keep Fit or Competitive Swimming for Adults
Staines Swimming Club Masters section is for adults who want to swim to keep fit or to compete. As long as you are over 18, age doesn't matter, as long as you can swim a few lengths, technique doesn't matter, you don't even have to swim all 4 strokes. It's a great way to keep fit and a great way to make new friends.
