Training Camp 2019 update




Dear Parents and Swimmers,

This is just a quick update on the warm weather training camp to Lanzarote Club La Santa. Final payments are due in the first week of December, and I can confirm they will be £100 so total cost has come in at £1000 per swimmer. This is mainly due to one of the Uni students dropping out, as we book per room not individual places.

We need to make the final instalment to Club La Santa on 6th December so could I ask everyone to make sure their final payments are made by then. Any problems please let me know.

Everything has been arranged and booked including coach transfer to and from Gatwick airport, I'll send out timings and flight confirmations, and greater detail next week after the Black Swan Open Meet. I can confirm the coaching and management team will be myself, Julie, Louise and team manager Jo Kent.

We do have one issue which parents/swimmers need to decide on. I arranged with Club La Santa for a trip to a Theme Park Rancho Texas on Thursday 21st February. This was arranged with details to be confirmed, the age bandings for children /adults I would presume to be the same as Club La Santa's as it was a trip they arrange. This turns out not to be the case so for the Rancho Texas Theme Park anyone aged 12 years and over would classed as an adult. Therefore our budget currently won’t cover the Theme Park trip.

An additional cost of £22 per person would be required and which includes the coach’s as well. This would cover transfer to and from the resort to the Theme Park and a day at the park. Swimmers would be given a packed lunch by the resort for the day.

The question is who would still like to go to the park and is happy to pay the extra £22 which can be paid in the first week of February 2019 or who is happy to stay in the resort and I'll arrange another activity for this day?

If you could send me an email by then end of the week confirming your choice that would be much appreciated so I can finalise everything and get the full information out to you next week.

If you have any question please feel free to ask.

Kind Regards

Chris White

Head Coach
