The RLSS has been reviewing and revising it's governance and approach. Here is the Cover Note followed by the document.
For some time now the Trustees and Leadership Team of RLSS UK have been listening to feedback about ‘Our Society'. In 2013 a working group was formed to review governance of the Society and we consulted the members on the governance of the Charity at the RLSS UK Conference in 2014. Having considered this feedback we developed various proposals to change the governance of RLSS UK to help equip us to meet market demands in the future.
Recently, we consulted directly with RLSS UK Branch Officials and we benefited from other members joining in this debate on these proposals. One of the aspects was about moving to a one member one vote system for our elections. We thought you might all like to know what has been said and what we are now going to do about it.

For those who have been directly involved thank you, for those that are seeing this for the first time, here is the background and we hope you now find this informative.

Following on from our post on 8/11 here is a sample Swimmer Progress report which will be provided every 4~6 weeks for every team member so that they can understand and monitor their progress in their current RLSS module.
Below is a sample.
We're a member for another year.

New RLSS Curriculum - Bronze Core and Life Support 3
Following all the work and effort everybody is putting in at the moment there will be a majority of the Bronze Core candidates that will have completed their award plus their Life Support 3 award.
The other candidates which may not have yet fully completed the syllabus will be pushed to finish when we resume after the summer.
It is planned to submit their assessment forms off to the RLSS over the summer. Please ensure that you have RLSS membership otherwise we cannot submit your form.
SLSC Polo Shirts
Many of the members and parents have enquired if there are any club logo shirts available.
I have a supply of Medium and Large (and I think a few Small) and will bring them to the club next week.
They are priced at £5.
SLSC Competition - 19Oct
It's getting close to our annual competition at Eckington in October. In addition to members completing their Bronze syllabus we will also be organising training and coaching for our team submissions. It's our club comp' so we need to enter as many teams as possible.
As ever we are asking for as many parent/member volunteers as possible on the day to help with the stewarding, timekeeping, competition incident on the day. PLEASE email me asap to let me know if you can help before and/or on the day.
And many members have helped and support the club each year in the running of the "Incident" aspect of the competition. Jamie is planning and organising this year's so please let him have your suggestions for the "theme".
See you next week!!
On behalf of the club I wish everybody a lovely summer and we'll then see you on September 4th.
Many thanks and regards,
