Information for upcoming meets this April

April Meets
We have the following meets coming up in April. Meet info will be distributed as normal, in due course.
Coast Development Meet Round 2 Sunday 19-4-15, ASV, ages 10-13 (age as at 14-6-15).
There is a big range of swims at this meet, please speak to your coach for advice on what to swim. 
Bridge of Don Time Banded Meet Saturday 25-4-15 ages 10-18.
This is our own meet, held at Bridge of Don pool, and we would like as many club swimmers as possible to take part. The swims are 50m in all strokes and the event is split into categories based on your current PB rather than on your age, which makes it a little bit different and lots of fun. This meet is open to JS3 (Gold), JS2 (Silver) and JS1 (Bronze) squads; if any Masters swimmers, age 18 or under, would like to take part please speak to your coach. 
Alford Otters 200 Meet Sunday 26-4-15, Fraserburgh pool, ages 10-14 girls, 11-15 boys.
This is a graded meet, although the consideration times are fast. This meet is open to JS3 (Gold) and JS2 (Silver) squads.
Please speak to your coach if you have any questions about any of these meets.

Beta League 1st Feb Information

Please see message from Aberdeen Amateurs 
Our LTS are in until 1330 so can I ask that swimmers don't go into the changing rooms until 1315 then be on poolside before the lessons come out at 1330. This saves congestion in the changing rooms and we also ask our swimmers not to leave belongings in the cubicles.
The international school now has a strict security policy and all visitors to the pool must take a yellow lanyard from the security desk at the main doors into the school on their way in.
Just a reminder also that caps must be worn in the pool.
