Urgent message for all parents and carers

Dated: 21 January 2018

Crawley SC relies on volunteers to keep this club running smoothly. This enables the Club to keep its fees as low as possible which directly impacts each and every member that swims at Crawley SC.  Each and every one of your children benefit from the time and input from those volunteers.

Can we please ask that every family looks at how just one member can contribute some time towards the Club.  There are so many different roles and each volunteer can chose where they are best suited. This only involves a little bit of time for each person if we have sufficient volunteers.

On Friday, our Time Trials was in jeopardy as we found ourselves in a position where the equipment we hired form K2 was not working to a standard that we needed so we became reliant on manual timing which requires trained timekeepers and it was incredibly difficult to find parents with this, easy to gain, qualification.  With Club Championships coming up in June, we need more volunteers please. The volunteer roles within the club are filled by the same faces each and every time and those same people actually fulfil more than one role and many of those fabulous individuals are moving on to pastures new with children soon attending University.

Please come forward and do something great for your children who have so much to gain form a great Club like Crawley SC.

Please contact me directly and we can discuss what role is best suited for you. (roles include: Drinks and Sweets Monitor, Time Keeper, Team Manager, Officials, Committee Member, Electronics Team, Coaching, Teaching, Poolside Marshalls, Fundraising, Welfare, Website, Team App, Marketing, Sponsorship, Open Meets Organiser, Data Input for Meets, Announcing ……..and so many more)

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from some new people.

Please see poster HERE from Sussex County which advertises some great courses to assist volunteers and clubs.
