Land Training Update

Land training will continue Tuesdays 5-6pm for swimmers in Performance and C2 who are identified by the Head Coach. There will be no session 4-5pm from now.

Swimmers in Performance and C2 identified by the Head Coach will take part in a 12 week block of work. Further details will be communicated to these swimmers this week. This session is aimed at swimmers for whom land training is an immediate priority. We plan to continue to explore opportunities for land training for younger swimmers in other squads. However I would like to emphasize that younger swimmers especially (12 & Under) can benefit substantially from being involved in other sports such as gymnastics, dancing, martial arts etc. For older swimmers who have not been identified for this block of land training please continue to work hard and attend pool sessions regularly. Regular attendance at pool sessions will greatly enhance the chance of swimmers being identified as requiring land training the in the future in line with Long Term Athlete Development. 

Many Thanks,

MASC celebrates 50 Years!

Morpeth ASC was first established in July 1969 which means we are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year.  To mark the occasion we are planning a “Celebration Evening” later in the year - July 6th -  for all of our members, so save that date in your diaries!

We really hope every member of the Club will get involved and join in the celebrations.

In order to keep ticket prices for this event to an absolute minimum we will need to do some fundraising events, the first of which was our Easter Egg Raffle.

Please do let the Committee know if you can lend a hand or have any fundraising ideas, and together we can make this an exciting and successful year for Morpeth ASC.

Regards,
Simon Watson (Chair)

IMPORTANT - Changing Rooms

Can all swimmers please aim to use the wet side changing facilities at all times, especially on a Sunday when between 5-6pm as this is when the dry side changing facilities are closed for cleaning.   We appreciate the changing rooms are busy so can we please encourage everyone to put their bags and clothes in lockers and refrain from keeping their things in a changing cubicle. All belongings are left at the owners own risk. Anything left in a changing room could be moved. Lockers are lockable with 20p to guarantee the safety of all belongings. 

The leisure centre staff have had problems cleaning the wet side changing rooms at other times in the week because some swimmers have left kit in cubicles or draped over locker doors. Please put all belongings into a locker properly so that they can do a good job without your kit getting soaked.

Issue with Spam

We have been alerted by Parentmail that there are some people experiencing problems with emails going straight into spam folder. If you know of anyone in the swim club having this problem please encourage them to use the Parentmail APP.

Outlook/Hotmail Spam Issue
We are aware of an issue with Outlook and Hotmail inboxes incorrectly classifying our emails as spam, meaning parents may be unaware of emails they are receiving from ParentMail. We have made contact with the provider and we are treating this as a high priority. In the meantime, we highly recommend all users download the ParentMail App to ensure you are receiving messages. We will update you as soon as this issue has been resolved, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

MASC Needs You!!

Please find below the details of the club's Annual General Meeting. We have a number of people stepping down from the committee this year after many years of service so are actively seeking new members to join our ranks.

You don't need to have any previous swimming experience or knowledge (if you do then that would be great!) but if you can spare a couple hours a month to help run the club it would be appreciated. If you want to know more about what might be involved then you can 'reply' to this email with any questions you have or simply have a chat to any of the current members who are often around poolside or the balcony.

The committee is an essential part of the club - without it we cannot function so please don't just assume 'someone else' will do it - we need you!!

New pool - Event Saturday 16th March

The council are putting on a consultation this Saturday (16th March) at the town hall. This will include the provisional ideas for the new pool in Morpeth.

The architects will be there as well as the county council officers who will be gathering opinions. It would be great if as many of you as possible could get along to support the development of the new pool. Please see the link below for more details.
