Promoting our swimmers

Over the past couple of weeks articles have started to appear within the Warrington Guardian about how successful our swimmers have been at National and Open meets and this is something we would like to build on in the future. The Club is also looking at developing facebook and instagram accounts to go alongside the Twitter account. All this has required us to continually ask for permission to use photographs and information about individuals, often on a tight deadline. To stop this moving forward can we please ask you to follow the link below to either give or refuse permission for photographs and information about your swimmer if they are under the age of 18 to appear on the club website, social media and in local media- if you don't fill in the form to approve consent then from September it will be assumed that your swimmer can not be included in any club media. You can change your mind at anytime and remove or approve consent by emailing the welfare officer or the club secretary.

All photographs taken will be inline with the ASA photography Guidance, which can be found here

Please make sure you have filled in the form by Monday 3rd September ready for the start of the new swimming season

Upcoming Galas

September is a busy months for galas and we have swimmers taking part in the following events:

City of Liverpool Tadpole League Gala - 9th and 15th September (closing date for this gala has already passed)

Team Gala - Bolton Mini League Final - Saturday 15th September at Bolton One - The team has been sent out and can be accessed here. If you haven't already confirmed your availabilty can you please do this to teamgalas@swimwarriors.org.uk by Sunday 26th August. Further information to follow for the time coach will leave from Woolston Hub.

If your swimmer has been chosen to represent the club and you have already entered Tadpoles, you will need to decide which gala you want them to attend. If you decide to attend the Bolton Mini League Final you will need to withdraw your swimmer from the Tadpoles Gala for the races they will miss alternatively if you are planning on going to the Tadpoles Gala instead please let Team Galas know so a replacement can be found in time.

Entry details can be found on the website, any questions please get in touch with homegalas@swimwarriors.org.uk. Deadline for entries is 8th September. We would not be able to run events like this and Badge Galas without support from Volunteers, please do come forward and support us, this can be done via the Active Site or if you have any questions please get in touch (secretary@swimwarriors.org.uk)

Wirral Metro Autumn Level 2 Meet - This meet runs on 29th/30th of September and is open to swimmers who meet the qualifying times in the meet pack. The deadline for entries is Tuesday 14th August.
