Sponsored Swim

Every year, the club holds a sponsored swim. This not only gives us a chance to raise money for the club and a local charity, but just as importantly it allows the swimmers to achieve something they can be proud of. They are always amazed at how far they can swim, as are the people who sponsor them.

All swimmers will receive a certificate and badge for the distance they have managed to cover. The coaches will be on hand to ensure everyone has a fun time and achieves their potential.

The money we raise will go towards a charity of the club’s choice.  This year’s charity, chosen by our members, is East Lothian Young Carers.

To download a copy of the sponsor form, simply click the link Sponsored Swim Form 2020:

Sponsored Swim Form 2020 v2

Some rules:

  1. Prior to starting distance swim – make sure you have been to the toilet, if you get out of the pool, you cannot get back in!
  2. Swimmers are not allowed to place their feet on the bottom of the pool during swim.
  3. Swimmers are not allowed to stop at either end of the pool for a rest.
  4. You can change stroke at any time.
  5. If you intend to swim a lot of lengths, (more than 50 lengths) you should be at the pool to start your sponsored swim during 1st or 2nd This will allow sufficient time for you to complete your sponsored swim in good time.
  6. You may swim on both days, however, only one of the swims will count.
  7. Parent volunteers will be needed to help count lengths and encourage the swimmers.
  8. All money and sponsor forms should be handed into the desk, or donated through the Justgiving page.
  9. Have fun!

Another great night down at the lake.
A wee bit of learning about cold water shock and how to survive if you get into difficulty in the water.

Did you know?
That cold water shock happens in waters 15*c and below
That even in the summer, seas and waters around the UK and Ireland average only 12*c
That it only takes 2 minutes in cold water to drown if you panic
That it only takes half a pint of sea water for an adult to start drowning.

How can you minimise the risk?

If you enter the water unexpectedly:

Take a minute. The initial effects of cold water pass in less than a minute so don’t try to swim straight away.

Relax and float on your back to catch your breath. Try to get hold of something that will help you float.

Keep calm then call for help or swim for safety if you’re able.

We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow evening.

Please remember to arrive swim ready and bring your swim cap, goggles, towel and a water bottle.

You will need an adult to sign you in/out and complete paperwork.
