Re: Saturday 26th January & Saturday 2nd February
Please note that there will be no swim training (squads1& 2) or land training at Victory on the above dates due to Norfolk County Championships taking place.
I’d like to say thanks to the Committee for electing me to the role of Chairman of North Norfolk Vikings Swimming Club.
I’m looking forward to helping to continue to support the great club we have developed for our swimmers. The committee meet every 4-6 weeks and ensure we have everything in place for a successful and safe club. If you ever have any questions or concerns please do speak with any of us or the helpdesk team.
For anyone who doesn’t know much about me… Myself and husband Spike help out coaching Development, Squad 4 and Squad 3. We also both swim and still compete in Masters for the club. Our two children Isaac and Noah swim in the club and have done since we moved to Norfolk. I retired from the Royal Navy in 2015 and have since been working in business consultancy and running my own Swim School. I have been a swimming teacher for nearly 30 years, a coach for 15 years and I tutor new teachers for the Swimming Teacher’s Association.
My focus is to continue the good work of the club, ensure our swimmers meet their aspirations and ensure we are in the best position to continue. For this I ask you all to support in any way you can. Be that paying subs and getting gala entries in on time, answering calls to help at galas, lane coach or officiate. We’re of course always looking for support however there are currently a number of important vacancies – if you’re not already regularly helping please do come and talk with me about where you could come help out even if that’s for just an hour a week.
See you at the pool soon, Sarah
