Parents are strongly encouraged to cheer for their swimmers at galas but we ask that you are mindful of those around you as your child may be pitted against their friend. Please remember that all results are to be applauded, even when your child doesn't win a medal.
Supporting Good Behaviour
Kippax expects its swimmers to act respectfully to their coaches and the adults who poolside at galas. Swimmers are expected to carry out drills and instructions as directed. Swimmers must be on poolside, changed and ready to swim 5 minutes before the session starts. We kindly ask that parents support us in this.
Please can all swimmers have a net bag containing a kickboard, pullboy and flippers. Some limited equipment is available on poolside. Please send your child to training with a drink. Whether you choose water, juice or an energy drink please ensure it comes in a sports bottle and can not be spilled. For poolside at galas there is an official strip, please see Lisa Clifford for details.
ASA fees are due in January. ASA fees are not retained by the club. These fees are payable at 2 different rates dependant upon the swimmer's age. Monthly training fees are payable by standing order. Please see Sally for details.
