Please see the letter from the committee regarding news about our swimming lessons.
We have been made aware that there are some parents who have been taking photographs/video during training/lessons.
Please be aware that this can only be done with prior permission from the Head Coach/Small Pool Coordinator/Committee and the signing of the club Photography Register, so that we can ensure you are aware of Swim England guidance, and the reasons for it. It also allows the club to make those who have opted out of club photography aware, so they have the opportunity to ensure their child(ren) are not on any personal images.
Photography/Video in the changing room area is strictly forbidden.
Anyone witnessing photography taking place in either the changing room, or from the balconies during training, please report it to a member of the committee or coaching/teaching staff immediately.
Thank you RSC Committee

The Swim England Events Team are in the process of planning the 2017 School Games which is taking place at Loughborough University Pool from the 1st of September– 3rd of September.
The 2017 School Games is a multi-sport event for the UK’s elite young athletes of school age.
Volunteers are crucial to running every aspect of the meet, from front of house, to timing and results, to announcers and event volunteers. We would like to offer Young Volunteers the opportunity to be part of the team at these Championships. Please note, the minimum age is 13 years old.
There are a number opportunities available:
- Medal Bearers
- Athlete Kit Team
- Results Team
The 2017 School Games are taking place as follows:
- Rehearsal – Friday 1 September, evening
- Day 1 – Saturday 2 September, approx. 9am-3pm
- Day 2 – Sunday 3 September, approx. 9am-3pm
We are working on quite a tight turnaround so would ask that any interested persons return the expression of interest form by Monday the 19th of June.

Well done to all our swimmers who took part over the three legs of the Derwent Swim Series. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
