Timekeepers and Judges needed for Grand Prix on 24th September

Dear all at Stirling Swimming


As you may be aware the Grand Prix starts up next Saturday the 24th September 2011 and therefore I will have to make another request for volunteers to timekeep and judge. This is a necessary factor in running a successful Grand Prix and I would be most grateful if you could make yourselves available for this as you all have in the past.


The whole point of holding a Grand Prix is for swimmers to race with and against their peers in a competitive but relaxing and enjoyable environment. If your swimmer achieves a PB this will be entered into the club database and used for future entries to galas. This year we have the added spice of the swimmers being in teams to try and recreate the atmosphere of a gala, so the swimmers will be expected to cheer on their teammates. The teams will be published later on in the week so please look out for where your swimmer is and take note.


This first Grand Prix will consist of a 400 Freestyle swim for 13 years and over and 200 Free and 50 Fly for 12 yrs and under.


Please note the age group will be what age the swimmer is on at 30th June 2012.


If you wish to volunteer or have any questions please email me at or catch me at the side of the Uni pool on Saturday morning or Sunday evening.


Kind regards


Jim Smith
