Scarborough Spring Splash April 2024 – Important changes to meet.

SCARBOROUGH SWIMMING CLUB

IMPORTANT ANNNOUNCENT

SPRING OPEN MEET 

SUNDAY 7TH APRIL 2024

To All Our Supporting Clubs

We are sure you are all aware that our Spring Open Meet has reached its capacity very quickly when entries were opened last week. It has been a disappointment that we have had so many entries rejected.

However, in conjunction with our pool partners, Everyone Active, we have managed to secure the pool for the Saturday afternoon 6th April 2024.

This does mean that we have had to rearrange the scheduling of the events over the 2 days. The new scheduling will be attached to this note and we hope that this will allow more swimmers to compete in our gala. There will now be 3 sessions of 12 events. Session 1 will be on Saturday afternoon and will finish no later than 6.30pm. Session 2 will be on Sunday morning and Session 3 on Sunday afternoon.

The entries that have been submitted and accepted do not have to be re-entered. Those places are confirmed. Please withdraw any swimmer who cannot compete if the new scheduling is not suitable. Any monies sent will be refunded to the relevant club.

It is our intention to release the gala for entries on Wednesday 15th November at 10am and entries will be accepted on a first come basis until the capacity is reached.

We hope this is acceptable to all our supporters and that the swimmers can all enjoy the unique gala that Scarborough Swimming Club offers?

If you have any further query’s please contact the meet promoters through the normal channels.

Thank you for your understanding.

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU! 

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU! 

Your Club Needs You - MCC NI

We are looking for more volunteers to join the club committee. The committee meets once a month. If you feel you can help support the continued success of the club please contact Vicky (Hon. Secretary) on secretary@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk
What does the committee do?
The organisation and operation of Kingfishers Swimming Club is the responsibility of its committee. As we are a registered charity, the committee are also the trustees.
The committee is charged with organising the efficient running of the club. All committee members are elected to their posts, but offer their time freely as volunteers. Maureen Dickinson (President),Colin Simmons (Chairperson), Vicky Gough (Hon. Secretary ) and Brian DeAlker (Hon. Treasurer) head-up our current committee. The committee comprises of parents of current swimmers, parents of swimmers who have now left and members of the poolside team.
The duties of the committee are wide ranging and encompass all aspects of the clubs administration such as finance, membership, welfare and child protection, pool hire, liaison with external organisations, organisation of club galas, arranging club/swimmer entry into competitions and of course supporting the club’s poolside team.
The committee meets monthly to discuss any issues related to the running of the club. They discuss both long-term issues in a planning capacity as well as smaller more immediate issues that arise during the course of the swimming year.

Kingfishers Newly Appointed Head Coach – Zoe Naylor

May be an image of 2 people and Arthur's Seat

From our newly appointed Head Coach, Zoe Naylor

As the Club’s new Head Coach, I’m really looking forward to building on the many successes we have already achieved and, supported by our already strong coaching team, our members and our Committee, delivering a healthy and vibrant future for our Club’s swim offer which will always have our swimmers at its heart.
I’ve been a coach at Kingfisher’s since 2020 and prior to that coached at Scarborough Swimming Club for several years where I made the first move from swimmer and swim parent to poolside. Swimming has always been a big part of my life. As a teenager, I swam competitively to National level. I’m a Level 2 Swim Coach and Open Water Coach and bring additional leadership skills from my 30-year management career in the creative industries. I’m a Mum to Jack and Bess (both swimmers and still involved in swimming). My other big passion, aside from swimming and being a Mum, is film – I run a film business and support young people from all over the UK to make short films for the British Film Institute.
It always feels like a privilege to support swimmers to achieve their goals, to be a part of their journey and to try to make all that hard work fun whilst enabling every swimmer to swim and train well, whatever their level. I respect every swimmer who trains and turns up for their sessions week after week to push themselves to achieve – swimming is a hard sport, one of the hardest – and am grateful for our volunteers who give their time to their club and look forward to working more closely with our swimmers’ parents who are always supportive. Kingfisher’s Swimming Club wouldn’t exist without you all and we will never take that for granted. Seeing all that hard work and joint effort come together at events and swim meets or even after a good session is always super rewarding.
