Senior Competitive and Club Squads - An Update
Due to unprecedented demand the Senior Competitive Squad is hugely oversubscribed and the Senior Competitive and Club sessions are becoming unsafe.
Your committee has therefore taken the following actions:
• The movement of swimmers from Senior Performance Squad to Senior Competitive Squad has been temporarily suspended.
• The Senior Performance Lane on Tuesday at 8.30pm on Tuesday has been temporarily suspended.
• Swimmers returning from City Of Birmingham are being asked to swim temporarily with the Senior Performance Squad.
• We are negotiating with Serco about the possibility of having extra lanes on a Wednesday at Wyndley.
To provide other long term solutions the Competitive Subcommittee has been asked to investigate the following possibilities:
• The introduction of Junior Club sessions.
• The introduction of Masters Only sessions.
• The adjustment of the ages of Junior and Senior Squads and the possibility of reorganising these squads.
For the benefit of all swimmers we also request that the Senior Competitive Squad and Club Squad consider swimming on the quieter
Sunday and Monday sessions rather than the very busy Wednesday, Thursday and Friday sessions. Please inform the Membership
Secretary email@example.com if you intend to change your sessions.
All swimmers are reminded that if you miss your normal session you are only allowed to swim in an alternative session with the
prior agreement of the coach of that session.

Cancelled and Missed Sessions
As stated in the Membership Terms and Conditions when Boldmere Swimming Club cancels a normal session members may swim at
an alternative session that week, with the prior agreement of the coach of the alternative session, if there is room in
that session. Members attending an alternative session without the prior agreement of the coach of the alternative session
will not be permitted to swim.
Members who miss their normal session will not usually be permitted to swim at an alternative session. In exceptional circumstances a member
who misses their normal session may swim at an alternative session that week, with the prior agreement of the coach of the alternative session,
if there is room in that session. Members attending an alternative session without the prior agreement of the coach of the alternative session
will not be permitted to swim.
