Date Change 28th October to 3rd November to be inline with NYCC school holidays

The camp will be open to any swimmer in Y7 or above at the time of travel (currently Y5). Swimmers also have to have shown good conduct at training, competitions and other away trips. There is a training commitment whist abroad which will be bridged by offering additional opportunities of training in 50m pools and also skills workshops alongside the additional training set up.

To reduce the cost of the trip parents will be responsible for organising fundraising and sponsorship to benefit the swimmers, the committee and coaching team are not responsible for organising this. To make the camp more manageable to fund by parents there are deposits timetabled and a regular monthly payment option to spread the cost.

The camp information will all be posted online in due course, in the mean time please refer to previous years information which will allow you to find out more about the process.

I look forward to seeing you at one of the talks. Bring on the sunshine!!

Kind Regards,

Greg

Swim Camp 2018 – Meeting Notes

Swim Camp Initial Meeting Handout

Follow Up Email – 29th April 2017

Thank you to those who have already started bringing deposits into the club. If you could please email me if you are coming on the trip so I can start to get organised with lane listings and training schedules that would be great. Letting me know if you are going will help me support those who are undecided based on friendship groups etc.. allowing us to have an even more successful venture.

I have been in contact with the company we use for the trip and the following revised timeline has been agreed.

  1. Deposits of £250 and Application Forms to Greg Ient by 31st May 9.30pm (All cheques made payable to Northallerton ASC)

  2. NASC to confirm booking by the middle of June with Sports Abroad

  3. Confirmation of Lanes/Chaperones required and NASC payment of deposit due by end of June with Sports Abroad

  4. Flights will be arranged following the summer holidays with NST

Upon receiving deposits swimmer and parents will be asked to sign a behaviour and training agreement to ensure that swimmers are adequately prepared and suitable for the trip which will become active from 1st June through to departure. It is worth noting as in the initial briefings that the coaching team taking swimmers abroad have the final say in suitability of any swimmer (Chaperones will also be consulted). Deposits are not refundable, after June 2018 there will be no refunds available apart from on medical grounds or exceptional circumstances of which insurance covers us.

A reminder of all details of the trip is on the below link a couple of pointers are listed below

  • 28th October to 3rd November is the planned dates – if flights or the trip will be cheaper to travel a day earlier/later this will be considered

  • Airport that we depart from is yet to be decided, we will be travelling by coach from NSSFC on the morning of travel.

  • Swimmers must be in Year 7 as a minimum age by the time of travel (current Y5)

  • Additional training and support will be available leading up to the trip

    • Sunderland LC Training

    • Meetings for parents and swimmers before travel.

  • A copy of the presentation gone through with parents is available on https://nasc.co.uk/main/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/swimcamp2018.pdf

  • Chaperones have been primarily agreed based on coaching requirements, if any more chaperones are needed then the committee will be consulted to the increase. We will take a minimum of 4 adults with a 1:8+1 ratio being maintained for the duration of the camp.

  • An additional ‘drop in’ hour will be available on Wednesday 10th and 17th may from 8.30-9.30pm at HLC on the viewing area for any additional questions that may need answering

More information about Training

As detailed in the itinerary training will be incremental throughout the week with an active balance between training different energy systems. This is short means that sessions at the start of the week will be slightly shorter in main set duration allowing for more skill development and utilisation of starting block facilities. Swimmers will be grouped in the pool according to ability and the coaching team will provide differentiated sets where required throughout sessions.

Dryside training will be split into two groups, an ‘older’ group will access the gym facilities on site to introduce them to strength and power building appropriate with their stage of physical maturation. The ‘younger’ swimmers will spend time working on general strength and conditioning activities to enable support and stability to be obtained for optimal transferring into the pool.
