If you are a parent of a CASC swimmer, and have an hour or two to spare each week, please could you contact a member of the committee either on poolside or 'contact us' via email. We are always looking for help from parents and need more volunteers to assist with Coaching and Teaching. The club pay's the course fee's for any agreed training undertaken. Support is welcome both on poolside and behind the scenes with club administration / management functions.
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018
Updated 29-Jun-2018 - Start List / Heatsheets - Revised to 5 Lanes
Note: Saturdays Gala is at Calne Leasure Centre.
***** IMPORTANT NOTE : Due to existing officials retiring from swimming or their children moving to university we urgently need parents (ideally those that already attend openmeets) to apply to become a licensed official. Please help us, as failure to do so may mean future club championships are unlicensed due to lack of officials.
