Soundwell L3 County Qualifier

Mon 1 December 2014 at 4:12pm

What a fantastic weekend for Soundwell Swimming club and our first ‘County Qualifier’ open meet. Congratulations and many thanks to our team for organising the meet and working extremely hard to bring this all together.

A big thank you to the Referees, officials, coaches, chaperones and volunteers, many of whom gave up their entire weekend, to support our meet and for keeping everything running so smoothly. A special thanks goes out to Claire Kerslake, ‘the voice of Soundwell’, who took on one of the most challenging roles and was a star. To put it simply, without ALL our volunteers this meet could not have gone ahead. 

The weekend again showed the commitment of our head coach by taking the lead competitors Marshall role for the weekend. However roles such as this are where we will need volunteers to take the lead in future in order for Matt to concentrate on the coaching of our children.

Many complements were received from both parents and visiting coaches saying just how much their children and swimmers had enjoyed the meet and how well run it had gone. One club was quoted as saying it was the best meeting they had attended in years..!! The atmosphere around the pool really was special and is something that was evident throughout the entire weekend.

And on to the children… All important times, PB's, trophies and speeding tickets were gained, but more than anything else the smiling faces and camaraderie really stood out. Our club is currently at an all time high and collectively WE must keep this ball rolling forward. Therefore, to get the very best for your children the club needs you.

We encourage all parents to please come forward and be part of your children's future success. Volunteers, Chaperones, Officials, Committee Members, all contributions are invaluable. A list has gone on the notice board to sign up so please come forward to help nurture and invest in your children's development.

I look forward to your support and thanks for making this weekend a success.

Success breeds success,
Julian Lewis
