We will be asking the swimmers tomorrow night and over the next few weeks if any of them would be interested in taking part in the competition in Eindhoven.
Our last visit was in 2012 and following on from this years competition & weekend events our swimmers who met up with the Dutch team had a really good time and they've fedback an interest in going to Eindhoven next year. Hence we've been looking at the dates and logistics to enter a 2014 Team in Holland.
It's on the 24th and 25th of January '15. The Dutch competition is run over two days. Day 1 (Sat) is the Incident Day and Day 2 (Sun) is their Speed Comp.
In previous years we travel (fly) on the Friday (23rd) and return on the Monday (26th).
On Nov,12th (please pop this in your diaries) we also plan to run a meeting for parents during the club session (ie. 19:30 onwards) if parents would like to ask the Coaches, Diane and myself any questions about what the competition is about, the travel and staying with our Dutch hosts. So it would be good to see any parents who have queries about the competition, trip, hosting and cost estimates.
As in previous years we will also provide correspondence to Schools who have been willing to sanction absence-with-permission (ie. not held against their attendance record) because of both the Sporting and Dutch Exchange aspects of the trip.
