On Sunday seven March Marlins swimmers gave up their free time to attend an Aquatic Helpers course that was tutored by head coach Jo Pearce.
This course is for those who wish to actively assist on poolside at the swimming club and help the younger swimmers. The workshop consisted of three hours of theory and three hours’ practical work.
The group of helpers were Cara Fresher, Katie McGowen, Ashleigh Lavender, Gemma McGowen, Jacob Halls, Graham Shaw and Nat Cook.
Also on Sunday, Will Shaw completed his Level 2 teacher’s course.
Will has spent the last four weekends travelling to the Cambridge pool and many evenings revising.
Without volunteers like these the club, which turned 50 this year, would struggle to run.
Marlins are holding their AGM on Tuesday, November 25, 7pm at the Cricket Club on Burrowmoor Road. A number of committee members are stepping down this year after helping out over the years and Marlins would like to say a big thank you for devoting their time.
New volunteers are needed. Contact Marlins via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0700 3901290.
