HST Information Update

HST Chair

Dear HST Parents, 

 

We just wanted to provide you with an update and an insight into future plans.

 

Our near term objective has been to steady the ship and help swimmers progress towards District, SNAGS, National Open and Summer meets.  There has been a huge amount of work undertaken to achieve this including continuing support from the volunteer coaches and the PDC support team of Phil Potter, Gordon Glasgow, and Morag Mitchell.  Everybody is working towards the greater good but we are finding that communication gaps can form very easily, especially around access to additional training sessions or squad movements and may result in frustration so to help us avoid this can any request for support be channeled through the appropriate email contact below.

 

Things may appear to have gone quiet on the recruitment front but we are awaiting a decision on Sport Scotland funding which will largely influence the next steps in this area.  However, in preparation, we have turned our attention to next season and the medium-term objective of simplifying and streamlining HST with a view to improving the experience for both member clubs and swimmers.  This process involves a review of the current state, identifying and agreeing on beneficial changes then implementing.  We do not expect this to occur overnight but we do think it is fundamental if we are going to help the team achieve its full potential.
