Boldmere Junior Invitation Meet 2017

The list of entries is now available on the JIM page. Please check your swimmers' times and events. Any errors contact bscmeetmanager@gmail.com

Volunteers Needed

It takes a team of over 70 volunteers to run the JIM safely. We are still looking for chaperones, gala marshalls, security marshalls and runners. If you would like to have some fun and contribute to the success of our meet please contact bscmeetmanager@gmail.com

Volunteers Needed for JIM 2017

Without the kind assistance of volunteer parents and friends, the event would not run, so if you have never helped before but are going to be there anyway, why not get involved. Jobs which we need volunteers for include:

* Top Results Desk (data entry of results, playing with word and excel documents)

* Security (standing at the bottom of the stairs, entrance to the pool and ensuring all the correct people go where they should do)

* Runners (run up and down the viewing gallery from the top desk to the pool side collecting the results of each heat)

* Marshalls (take the children along pool side in heat order until they race)

* Chaperones (ensure the children and lined up and ready for their events)

If you are available to help all day, or just the morning or afternoon session, please contact Judy Kenyon and she will explain what the roles involve and add you to our list of volunteers.

Raffle Prizes Needed for JIM 2017

If you have any suitable raffle prizes please bring along to Wyndley or Erdington sessions or give to squad reps at Castle Vale.

Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers 2017

Please collect your Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers and pass them on to the Club - please pass your vouchers on to anyone at the desks at Erdington or Wyndley, or to Judy Kenyon at Castle Vale.

The Pines School is a small local special school for children with Autism. If you have any 'preloved' toys or activities (from Happy Meal toys to scooters) that you could donate to The Pines please use 'Contact Us' above to arrange for their collection.
