ROLL OF HONOUR
SCSC Swimmer of the Year
The Margaret Randall Swimmer of the Year award is presented annually at the clubs Awards Evening, by Ken Randall, a long-time serv
The squad system is continually under review. In general, swimmers are given a trial period in a suitable squad from a couple of sessions per week up to a month, at the coach's discretion, before a permanent move is made. The general criteria for movements are:
- Numbers in the squads
- Coaches' recommendations
- Swimmer's appropriate ability (after trial)
- Attendance (two out of three) sessions as a general rule
The Head Coach and coaches will formalise any movements with a starting date. Swimmers in the Club Masters Squad can have a trial in the A or B Squads at anytime. After a period (normally 1-2 months) a decision will be made. Parents and swimmers will be informed of any changes as and when they happen. When the Head Coach feels that a move between squads is appropriate, he will discuss the situation with the swimmer and parents. However, if at any time you feel you want to talk to the Head Coach about the squad you/your child is in please make arrangements to do so. The Head Coach of SCSC reserves the right to move swimmers at any time from any squad.
