Viking Swim Club

Parents are required to provide supervision as part of the swimmers membership of the club. Parents are required to be on the pool bank when scheduled. This is a Swim Ireland, Safeguarding requirement. In the event that no parent is available for pool bank duty, the session will be canceled. As such it is every parents responsibility to ensure that the session will go ahead before leaving the pool.

It is your responsibility to arrange a replacement in the event that you cannot cover a session.

The schedule is arranged in advance and changes can only be made with significant notice to the committee.

The duty parent should:

  • Arrive at the pool at least 15 minutes before the session start time.
  • Identify yourself to the Coach conducting the training sessions as the person who will be performing Pool Duty.
  • Specific to early morning Ballyfermot trainings:
    • Assist Coach in setting up lanes.
    • Open the door to swimmers no later than i.e. 5:15am to allow for warm up.
  • Position yourself in the immediate vicinity of the pool so that you can hear/see the session.
  • Remain on the poolside for the duration of the session.
  • Sign the log book at the end of the session.

The calendar for duties is in Calendar on the website under General.
