Dear Club Chairs
At every event delivered by Sussex County ASA we need the help of Non Tech Volunteers (the people in the blue t shirts) to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible and that your swimmers have the best possible experience. The jobs we ask these people to help us with include distributing results, tech support, competitor stewards and refreshments. They can claim travel expenses in line with our expenses policy and if they are working two sessions we will provide lunch.
You will be aware that the insurance cover we all have through Swim England stipulates that anyone working at an event in any capacity is only covered if they are members of an affiliated club. This of course restricts who we are able to work with at our events and because the County does not have any members of our own we are entirely reliant on clubs to recruit these Non Tech Volunteers for us.
They can be anyone who is a member of your club, they do not have to be parents but, because of the nature of some of the jobs, they should be over 18years of age.
I would be grateful if you could distribute the attached form to any club member who may be able to assist us deliver the Winter Competition at K2 over the weekend of 21 / 22 October. We will then, with their permission. add them to our database.
I am very grateful for your support.
Chair, Sussex County ASA

We are running short of parents, carers, siblings, grandparents to be timekeepers at our time trials and club champs. Many of our timekeepers are stepping out of swimming because their 'little swimmers' are no longer little and have gone off to university.
Please train as a time-keeper so that we can keep supporting our children with swimming licensed times - come and join the rest of us 'white shirts' poolside - it's cooler down there, the time passes more quickly, and we even have fun!
There is a time-keeper's course in a couple of weeks - details below:
Date: Friday 20th October
Time: 7pm - 8:30pm
Location: King's Centre, East Grinstead
Cost: covered by the club
Minimum age: 14
We can also arrange a taster session for you at this Friday's time trials if you think you might be interested but aren't quite sure.
Please let Jemma know if you are interested in either the taster or the course by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
