The Kings Swim Club Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 26th May 2017 at 3:00pm – 4:00pm at Peninsula Obstacle Racing Course

The AGM will commence once the squad members going on the  Peninsula Obstacle Racing Course.

In order for the AGM to proceed we need a quorum of members (in our case Members Parents as they need to be represented by someone who is 18+). A ‘quorum’ is the minimum number of members needed to transact business at a meeting.  The quorum for an annual general meeting is at least 50% of the total members.

If you cannot attend our meeting, you can appoint a person to represent you. This person ‘holds a proxy’ and their vote is counted as yours. You may authorise a person in writing to act as your proxy to attend, speak or vote on your behalf at the AGM. If you are appointing a proxy, can you please complete the Proxy Voting Form and return it to secretary@kingsswimclub.com.au by 1pm on Thursday 24th May 2018.

We still need Committee Members. Please remember we are all volunteers and that we are all busy people too, we all work, we all have children to run around, so please consider joining the Committee. The more Committee Members we have the less work there is for everyone to do. With several long term Committee Members stepping down this season we need your support more than ever. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO FILL THE NECESSARY SPOTS ON THE COMMITTEE, KINGS SWIM CLUB CAN NOT CONTINUE. If you would like to join the Committee, please complete the Nomination Form and return it to secretary@kingsswimclub.com.au by 1pm on Thursday 24th May 2018.

The Peninsula Obstacle Racing Course is a 3km obstacle course consisting of over 30 military style obstacles that are fun and challenging giving participants a real sense of achievement upon completion. There are two courses, a dry course and a wet course, swimmers will be  completing both courses, so they will get wet and they will get dirty so please wear appropriate old clothing and shoes. Hot showers will be available upon completion of the course.

Please bring…
Water bottle, sunscreen, insect repellant, towel, change of clothes, plastic bag for dirty clothes.

All participants will need to complete a waiver and for those participants under 18, this waiver will need to be signed by a parent or guardian.

Please discuss your participation in these meets with your Coach.

It is with deep regret and much sadness that I must inform our Narre Warren swimmers that we are losing Luke as a Coach. He interviewed and was successful in getting an Assistant Manager role at Kingswim St Kilda. I wish him all the best in his new role and thank him for a wonderful year. He has been a fantastic Coach, mentor and friend to the swimmers, their families and to the committee.

The good news is that St Kilda have been very kind and they are giving Luke plenty of time to train up Miranda, Scott, Jake & Alisha so they are comfortable in their new roles before he leaves. Make sure you wish him well and say farewell before he goes.

Miranda and Scott will be taking on the role of Gold/Silver Coaches and we welcome Jake & Alisha, who will join Miranda in the role of Bronze Coach.

Jake and Alisha are both former Kings Swim Club members and are really happy to be joining the team and to be able to mentor and coach the swimmers the way they were mentored and coached when they themselves were swimmers.

Please make them both feel welcome when you see them out on pool deck.

Urban Quest and Presentation Day

Our End of Season event will be an “Amazing Race” style adventure on Sunday 15th April, 12:30pm – 2:45pm. Run by Urban Quest it will be full of clever riddles, hilarious challenges and lots of fun and action. The Quest will set up in the park near the Kingswim Narre Warren Centre and will see teams of 5-6 competing to try and outwit, outsmart and outplay each other.

Please bring swim gear as one or more people per group may need to complete a water challenge. Some of the activities will require the use of a Smartphone with data.

This event is an outdoor event, to be held at the park near the Kingswim Narre Warren Centre so please dress appropriately for the weather.

For those who have not already signed an Acceptable Use of Mobile Phone and Personal Digital Devices Policy please sign and bring this form along with you on the day.

Squad Fees are as follows:
Bronze – 3 Sessions per week: $130.00 per month
