The non slip mat is in place and the hook rails are due to be put up next week. Senior swimmers only can put gear back in their designated spots. It will be another week before the remaining gear can start going back in. we are aiming for Monday 4th June (if rails are up). Then it is essential that swimmers know to hang gear away in their set spots, if they don’t then we lose the privilege of having the equipment room. LC staff can’t be expected to navigate and fall over gear left lying around. As much as they would like to; for safety reasons the equipment room can’t be treated like their bedroom and coaches are not parents dutifully cleaning up after swimmers. The other problem is not putting their gear in their swim bags;
1. SWIM BAGS for all swimmers (no loose gear or shopping bags)
2. PUT gear in bags after training
3. HANG gear away in designated spots
4. 3 or more sessions every week can leave gear – if in doubt check with Carol
The Leisure Centre are very good to us giving us a storage room the least we can do is make sure our kids keep it tidy and worksafe.
