NOVA Centurion are looking to recruit a coach for their B2 squad and administrator for the County Swim Squad.
Full job adver: NOVA B2 Job Advert – September 2021.
We have now released the Qualifying Times and Schedule for the 2022 Nottinghamshire A.S.A. County Championships.
Full information can be found in the county competitions area here.
The Qualification window has been extended due to the COVID pandemic back to 1st January 2020.
Entries will open on 19th November 2021, and close on 17th December 2021. Once entered, any withdrawals must be made no later than 6pm the day before the event. This will allow us to produce the starts lists for the day, so coaches can print them before they arive (notification that starts lists are ready will be pushed out using the Telegram Notification App). This way we can reduce the amount of paper that we are using as a County (Finals start lists will still be printed).
We are pleased to announce that we have now released full information for our Festive Frenzy Gala 2021, set to take place at Harvey Hadden Sports Village on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December 2021.
Full information is now available here, although please note that we will be following whatever COVID guidelines are in place at the time of the meet and these will be notified to all entrants if and as they evolve.
As a county we have decided to go as paper free as much as possible, therefore we will not be printing programmes and want to cut down on the amount of paper we use in general. We will be using the “Telegram” service to push out notifications of starts lists and results that can be viewed on the webiste along with any important information and DQ notifications. Telegram is a free to use app, and full information can be found on our competition page for the event.
With most restrictions across the UK being removed and we are starting to see a small return to competitions for our swimmers, Nottinghamshire ASA have been working behind the scenes to start organising our competitions.
When we were originally told that the restrictions were to be lifted in June this year, we had started planning our Summer Gala in preparation for a return to competitions. However, with the government announcement that the England Lockdown would be extended and this would end just after the date for the Summer Gala, we thought it would be better to play things safe and cancel the competition in full rather than run it under full restrictions.
But, as we are now in our new state of normal, and we now have full guidance on competitions (although this is constantly evolving), Nottinghamshire ASA’s committeess have been meeting to organise the competition calendar for Nottinghamshire for the remainder of 2021 and into 2022. We have listened to those clubs that have provided us with feedback, and although there is clearly a need for competitions, most of the comments that we recieved from clubs, and one that the committee agreed with was that we should not look at running any league competitions in 2021. This frees up the calendar for the remainder of the year so that if clubs can and feel safe to do so, then they can run open meets and internal club competitions. Thus hopefully giving essential funds back into clubs, and also getting swimmers times into rankings, that will be vital for entering other upcoming competitions.
Therefore, our leagues committee are working hard on the calendar for 2022, including reviewing how the leagues are structured.
Our swimming committee are in the last stages of finalising the information for the Nottinghamshire Festive Frenzy 2021, which will be held at Harvey Hadden Sports Village on 4th and 5th Decemeber 2021. Full details of this competition, including the opening of entries should be published within the next couple of weeks.
Nottinghamshire’s County Championships are currently in full planning, and we are hoping to have things sorted and atleast the schedule and qualifying times published in early September. The dates for our 2022 county championships are all booked in at Harvey Hadden Sports Village for 15th/16th Jan, 5th/6th Feb and 19th/20th Feb 2022 (with 20th Feb possibly being for Relays).
As soon as we have more information we will publish this for you all. Please keep safe and it will be nice to see you back on poolside over the coming months.
If clubs have got confirmed dates for 2022 for open meets they are hosting, please can you contact David Fortescue so we can get these on the calendar.
Following the reintroduction of a level of competition across the UK, the British Swimming SOG has taken the following decision with regards to deadlines for candidates to complete Judge 1 training:
- Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training by the 31 August 2021 will have until 31 July 2022 to complete their practical training.
- Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training from 1 September 2021 onwards will have 11 months to complete their practical training.
Points to note:
- The date of completion of the theory training is the date on the certificate.
- It is important that candidates enter the correct date when uploading their certificate, otherwise it defaults to 1 January 2021.
- Any practical training that has already been completed can be used, provided it meets the criteria for mentoring as laid down in the log book.
Log books are now being issued on a regular basis so if they are not being received then candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their membership number if they have been waiting more than 2 weeks from uploading their certificate.
Nottingham Lenader have a few job vacancies. Please find the information for each in the packs below.
We wish all of the Team GB Atheletes the very best of luck at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics that have officially started today after a years delay due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Whether our atheletes are originally from Nottingham, or further afield, from the world of swimming or any other sport. We stand as one and wish them all the very best of luck and hopefully will get the medals coming in soon and get Team GB high up on that medals table!
It is with regret that we have to inform you that Tony Lord who was a referee and a former member of Calverton & Bingham Swimming Club died last Tuesday having caught COVID.
Tony and his family moved to Durham but when Tony came down to Nottingham he always helped out at any competitions.
Roy Crampton will be representing the County at the funeral. We wish his family our condolences.
