Training Returns to Merrylands

Training returns to Merrylands Swimming Centre on Monday, 12th September, 2005.

The club’s swimming squad program will undergo some changes this season.

On Thursday, 15th September, an information session will be held in the Club Room at Merrylands Swimming centre starting at 5:30pm. All current, former and future members of the club’s swimming squad and their parents are invited to attend this session which will provide an overview of the entire squad program for the next 6 months.

Some of the changes that will be detailed include:
• New squads for Adults and Teenagers
• Session times
• Fees
• Session content & structure

At this information session, each family that is interested in joining the squad will need to sign up for an “interview” on either Monday, 19th or Tuesday, 20th September. These interviews will take approximately 10 minutes and will be used to decide which squad you will be invited to join.

The days and times that the various squads will run will be posted in the training section of the club’s website following the interviews. The new times will commence when training resumes on Tuesday, 4th October, 2005 (there is no training on the Labour Day Holiday).

As of October 1st, all squad members must be registered as members of the Merrylands Amateur Swimming Club Inc. For the 2005/2006 swimming season. Benefits of membership include discounted entry into Merrylands Swimming Centre for Training. Other benefits can be found on the club’s website here.

The existing squad has been training at Wentworthville Swimming Centre since mid-May and will return to Merrylands on Monday, 12th September.
Due to the above arrangements, the training times during the rest of September will be limited. Therefore there will be no swimming sessions on the following dates:
Thursday, 15th September(Information Session)
Monday 19th September(Interviews)
Tuesday 20th September(Interviews)
Monday 26th to Thursday 29th September(First week of the School Holidays)

I hope to see you on the 15th September and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Peter Johnston
Head Coach
