A few points about NACSC vs NAC / EB
Any enquiries re squad fees and/or learn to swim fees, and any direct debit enquiries, are for Nepean Swim and Fitness, the company who run Nepean Aquatic Centre & Eva Bory’s Swim School, and are completely separate to NACSC (Swim Club) business. Any Direct Debit or fee enquiries should go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Team App is for NACSC, ‘Nepean Swim’ is for Nepean Aquatic Centre and Eva Bory’s Swim School – both available on the App Store and Google Play. We would encourage you to download both to keep up with all important news.
Swimming NSW Youth Advisory Panel and Lane Ropes To Leadership Program
One of our club swimmers (and Club Vice Captain) Kayla Bentley has been involved in the Swimming NSW lane Ropes To Leadership and Youth Advisory Panel projects, co-ordinated by Sarah Koen (Sport Development and Participation Manager at Swimming NSW), since 2016. The next stage of the projects is to finalise footage for the Swimming NSW digital story (for Sport and Rec funding), and to divide into two groups (working parties) to start developing two new separate projects soon to be announced.
The group next meet on 2nd Thursday March at NSWIS, and have been asked to do some preparation in advance of the meeting as below:
Take some short (max 10 seconds) video snippets of your club and training environment. It might be everyone diving off the blocks; stretching or warming up; laps/tumble turns; listening to the coach; the coach giving instructions to swimmers in or out of the water; high fiving each other; group hugs; people laughing and smiling; chatting to technical officials etc. Just typical day to day stuff. Include mainly teenagers, as the end digital story is for promotion to teenagers. It doesn't need any voice over or sound necessarily, it's just so that we have some good footage to put into the background of the final digital story. They don't need to pose, in fact, it's better if they just act normal.
So if you see Kayla taking video, act natural, it will be great to have our NACSC swimmers involved in the promotion of the sport of swimming!
Thanks everyone, and well done Kayla!
