Unfortunately Northolt swimmers won`t be able to visit us this year, due to unforeseen circumstances at their side.

The committee is meeting next week to re-plan.  At this stage, it is excepted that the gala will go ahead, further details will be made available in due course.

The Committee 

29th August 2017
As you will be aware the club is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and committee members who give up their time, mainly in the background to ensure the club exists for the benefit of all the swimmers.

Without these volunteers, the club would cease to exist, many past, current and future members would not benefit from the training and development the club provides.

The existing group of volunteers and committee members have recently taken multi-tasking to a whole new level and we really need additional help to ensure the club continues into 2018 and beyond. Yes, it really is that critical without more people getting involved the club could close.

There are many ways you can help, be it on an ad-hoc basis when you can spare some time or if you want to get involved right up to committee level.

As an example, we have no championship secretary, this role deals with all the gala entries (which sounds daunting but isn`t) this is currently being handled by people with many other duties so if we don`t fill the role we will have no option but withdraw from many competitions and open meets.

If you feel you can offer assistance to the club in any way at all please get in touch via secretary@bradford-dolphin.co.uk Including details of best time and way to contact you or speak to any committee member poolside at any training session. Below is a list of ways you can get involved but this is by no means exhaustive.

Non-Committee support required

Team Manager, Website Administrator, Gala support, Team Manager Co-ordinator, Press/Communications Officer, Fundraising

Committee Positions support required

Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Championship Secretary, Social Secretary Welfare Officer, Swim 21 Coordinator, Trophy Controller, Membership Secretary

Committee members are elected at the AGM in November and we actively encourage anyone who may be interested in taking a role to speak to us and consider putting themselves forward to take on a role at the AGM. Whilst some positions are filled currently those people in these positions are happy to rotate to other roles whilst continuing to provide support. The club will always benefit from new and fresh ideas.

The next committee meeting will be held at Fields Sports and Social Club on the 29th August at 7pm and we will welcome any member at this meeting who would like to experience a meeting to see what is involved.

Please note Bradford Dolphin Swimming Club takes child welfare very seriously and DBS check all volunteers who work directly with children directly. We also ask that these volunteers attend safeguarding children training course (funded by the club).

Please help in any way you can, no matter how small every little really will make a tremendous difference to the future of your swimming club. Anyone offering help will be given training and assistance where required.

Thank You

Bradford Dolphin S.C. Committee
