Young Leader Development Days have been scheduled to take place in 2020 for Young Volunteers from the Swim England North East Region Clubs to gain aquatics volunteering skills and some practical experience of working at aquatics events.

The opportunities are available are for young adults aged from 14 and 17 years who are part of an aquatics club. The days will provide the young leaders with an opportunity to develop their skills, broaden their knowledge, enhance their CV and get involved in the wider aquatic community.

The development days will take place on:

Saturday 14th March 2020, 9:00am – 5:00pm at John Charles Centre for Sport, Leeds, LS11 5DJ.

Sunday 15th March 2020, 9:00am – 5:00pm at Beverley Leisure Centre, Beverley HU17 0LT.

(Note: Each development day will cover the same content. Candidates are required to attend just one of the two days).

If it is something that your child would be interested in please let a member of the Committee know, as South Axholme Sharks are willing to pay the course fees for any of our swimmers attending.

Both development days will include the following workshops:

Event Volunteering

This workshop will provide an opportunity to consider what goes into delivering an aquatics event, the various different roles involved and the different skills required to ensure that an event runs effectively and efficiently.

Swimming Officiating

This workshop will cover an introduction into the world of the swimming officiating. The training opportunity will include British Swimming Timekeeper and Judge 1 training.

Timekeeper training will cover the practical aspects of what is required of a timekeeper. Judge 1 training encompasses the role and duties of a Timekeeper, Chief Timekeeper and Inspector of Turns.

Candidates will undertake some classroom based theory instruction, then gain practical experience of working on the poolside at a competition at the venue in the afternoon.

Young Leaders who attend the days will be provided with the appropriate resources to support them with event officiating volunteering.

A £5 contribution will be requested from each volunteer to assist in delivering the day. Candidates will be asked to pay this contribution once their place on the day has been confirmed.

Candidates attending the day will be given the opportunity later in the year to volunteer at other events across the region such as the Regional Competitions and National Competitions organised by Swim England.

Places on each of the development days are limited. Places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Applications should be made online at: Young Leader Development Day Application Form 2020. Apply early to avoid disappointment!

Halloween Meet was a Howling Success
Posted by lisa on 06 November
Our 13th annual Halloween Meet Gala was a great success in many ways.

There are many people to thank: starting with the Officials who come back year on year to support our club; Cris Lewis the man in the the background, who manages the technical bits; Beverley Leisure who provide us with an excellent service; the Army of volunteers who help with the smooth running, before, during and after the Gala; and finally our swimmers who this year brought home the Top Club Trophy

Last year, South Axholme narrowly missed out on bringing home the Top Club Trophy, with 48 swimmers over the course of the day, it looked like a possibility this year.

After the first event Scunthorpe Anchor took an early lead, over the next nine events the lead passed between Louth, Pocklington (last years winners), Scunthorpe Anchor and South Axholme Sharks. By the tenth event Pocklington and South Axholme were tying. At the end of the morning session South Axholme were ahead by 26 points.

South Axholme managed to hold the lead till the tenth event in the afternoon, when Pocklington managed to gain enough points to equalize. During the rest of the afternoon the lead bounced between the two clubs. South Axholme crept into the lead four events from the end of the day and held the lead to win by 8 points.

Congratulations to all swimmers involved, it was a great team effort. Along with all the medals, 26 Speeding Tickets were achieved.

Lizzie McCallum was awarded the top 13/14yrs Top girl award, Lizzie placed one first place, three second places and a third to top the table with 25 points.
