Young Volunteers ready to inspire
Congratulations to the following Young Volunteers who have been selected to join the 2017/18 Somerset YV Programme.
|Harriet Amelia Foley||Keynsham|
Kelly Podbury (pictured), has requested YVs email their Polo shirt size to her as soon as possible but no later than Friday 20 October so the shirts can be ordered and ready for our first get together which is on Saturday 9 December 2017 at Brean Splash
YVs can get going on their programme before then. Kelly will work with Jackie Hilleard, Regional YV coordinator, to get logbooks out to our YVs over the next week or so for them to read and go through with club mentors and then start logging volunteering duties undertaken.
On 9 December, our YVs will do their Timekeeper course in the morning with Alan Withers, and after lunch, do the Young Aquatics Helper Course (YAHC). It will be a long but very worthwhile day with lots to gain.
In preparation for the YAHC, Kelly has asked our YVs to register with the IOS Online (the link is also in these Programme Dates for download). This website will be great for future swimming courses and there are lots of free courses on there too. Once YVs are registered, Kelly will send out the voucher code to book onto the course once it has been confirmed.
Please can any YVs who are unavailable on 9 December let Kelly know as soon as possible.
More details of the day at Brean Splash will follow from Kelly.
Kelly would love to hear from any Club Mentors who are welcome to join us on 9 December and also from any YVs free to volunteer at the Development Meet, if not swimming or supporting their club. We are always looking for help in the Sports Presentation Team (Recorder, Announcer, Sweetie & Water distributors, Medals desk, runners etc.)
Kelly is really looking forward to working with our YVs and happy to answer any questions you may have.
