Kingston ASC AGM Minutes 28th January 2019

October 30th, 2019, 3:10 pm

Date:  Sunday, 3rd November 2019
Session One : Warm up at 9.00 am – Competition Start at 9.45 am
Session Two : Warm up at 1.15 pm – Competition Start at 2.00 pm
Venue Larkhall Leisure Centre, Broomhill Road, Larkhall ML9 1QP

Swimmers should aim to arrive about half an hour before the warm up starts, get changed and check in with the Kingston Team manager poolside. We have 31 Kingston swimmers in the first session so please DO NOT bring  swim bags poolside or we will have a huge pile of bags! Put your bag in a locker and bring your cap and goggles, reusable bottle of water, Kingston T shirt and a spare towel to the poolside, plus a snack if you will need one.

All swimmers should be present for the warmup at the start of their session even if they are not swimming until later in the session.  There will be plenty of Kingston support poolside for inexperienced competitors.

If your child is leaving before the end of the session, or leaving poolside for any reason, they MUST inform the team manager ( the people in T-shirts with Team Manager on them!) to save hunting for missing children later on.

Events are run in heats from slowest to fastest swimmer.

There is a small entry charge for spectators, and we hope you will also support our Tombola, raffle and tuck shop.

Dear Members,

The Kingston Committee is obligated to review monthly fees on a regular basis to
ensure the club runs in a financially viable manner.

We have been doing this to make sure the club’s swimming programme is sustained
by the correct level of fees, taking into consideration similar programmes offered
throughout the central belt.

At the early part of this year it was agreed by the Committee to review our fees in line
with a financial forecast for the next 12 months. It was then agreed that a fee increase
should be worked out and proposed. The Committee have discussed the fees issue
over a period of a couple of months prior to the summer break, taking on board
different points of view from Committee members and our Head Coach, before voting
on the final proposal.

As a result, the Committee have adopted the following fees structure with effect from
1st October 2019:

SQUAD                                        MONTHLY FEE (from Oct 19)
TP1                                                £14.00
TP2                                               £14.00
BP1                                                £28.00
BP2                                                £28.00
BP3                                                £28.00
MP1                                                £28.00
MP2Short Course                       £36.00
MP2Long Course                        £36.00

We would be grateful if standing orders could be updated accordingly, effective from
1st October 2019.

Many thanks for your cooperation and support.
Kingston ASC Committee

RASC 2019- Psych Sheet

Please note message below from organisers:

“As I’m sure you all know, this is a ‘last-chance’ meet for those looking to pick up DRP times so it is extremely important that we achieve accreditation for all sessions.

To this end can I ask that you please provide us with details of the technical officials from your club who will be attending each session. With the required number of judges and timekeepers we will gain accreditation and swimmers won’t risk missing out on acceptance to the programme. Please complete and return the attached form to our STO Coordinator at as soon as possible. Once again there will be some great prizes for attending officials this year!

Can I ask you also to please remind your swimmers that they will need pool shoes at Bellshill as they will have to go up and down stairs. This is a facility regulation for health and safety reasons”
