No, the GS Aquatics Noosaville Swim Club membership cost pays for your child/ren to race each Tuesday night for the entire season.
All children who attend club nights must have in attendance a parent, responsible for their supervision. If a parent is unable to attend, arrangements must be made for another responsible person to accept the supervision of the child concerned.
GS Aquatics Noosaville Swim club is all about preparing children for swimming events. It may be a learning curve the first few times, but they quickly get the hang of it and learn by watching the more experienced swimmers.
The swim events are posted in numerical order on the white board outside the club room near the grandstand with the names of each swimmer. Parents and children should aware of which events they are swimming and remain around the ‘grandstand’ area for marshalling. Marshalling occurs at the far end of the grandstand (Good Shepherd College end).
The swimmers names will be called for each event and asked to be seated in the marshalling area awaiting their event.
If your children are only racing at club level on a Tuesday night not it is not compulsory for them to wear GS Aquatics Swim Club merchandise. If your children race at external meets for GS Aquatics Swim Club, the club merchandise is the preferred apparel to identify them as a proud GS Aquatics Noosaville Swim Club member.
Nothing is compulsory (apart from having fun), each member is able to nominate the week prior which events they wish to take part in.
GS Swim Club caters for younger children with 12.5 events. As their confidence and ability increases they can then proceed to 25mtr events.
A nominations book is provided outside the club room (near the grandstand) detailing the events for the following week.
Ideally we encourage members to nominate the week prior, however if you were unable to attend or forgot, please email (insert email address) by the Friday prior to club night and we will add the members details for the specific events.
Club night is not compulsory. We love it when our members can swim, however understand they are not always able to make it due to illness, work and family commitments.
In the event of extreme weather conditions such as torrential rain, thunder and/or lightening, club is generally cancelled, however we have created Twitter and Facebook accounts so we can post if club night has been cancelled.
50mtr and 100mtr events have a qualifying time for each of the strokes which need to be met consistently to allow the swimmer to progress to these events.
