Doe Amateur Swimming Club

Swimming continues on this Saturday 20th January with the following parents due to supervise from 5.45 in Dunfanaghy. Diane Black, Sean McAuliffe, Philip O’Donnell and Lorraine McGinley.

One supervising parent must sit at the back of the bus and one must sit at the front of each bus.

We would like to remind parents that there is a waiting list still for members to join Doe Swim Club. Bearing this in mind, the Committee is monitoring attendance and will be in contact with parents of repeat non attendees as these places could be offered to those on the waiting list.

At our meeting recently, the Committee reviewed the policy on mobile devices including mobile phones .It is now Club policy that mobile devices including mobile phones are prohibited in both the Aura complex and on the buses. We ask that parents ensure the swimmers comply with this policy.
