HELP THE CLUB

Hi All,
Can you spare some time to help Ludlow Swimming Cub and, at the same time, earn a qualification that could see you one day officiating at the Olympic Games!?!?!
It is a requirement, when attending our League Galas/Meets, that we have a minimum of three trained officials. We need to have a continual training programme for the club to progress forward.
If you are interested in helping your club progress and would like to learn more about what this entails, please let me know by the 10th April and I will organise an initial meeting to take place on 12th April at the Leisure Centre at 6:30pm
If you would like further information, I can be contacted on email steve.martin@ludlowsc.org.uk or 07741 489561 alternatively you can see me at the pool during our normal swim sessions.
Thanks
Steve Martin
