TERM 1 and 2 2020 Swimming

YEARS 5 - 12 TERM 1 and 2, 2020
Dear Parents & Swimmers,
MLC students will have the opportunity to attend swimming training at the MLC Aquatic Centre. Please read the following information carefully as it will form the basis for your involvement in Swimming at MLC in 2020.
This is a Stroke Development and Fitness Program and not a learn to swim program; acceptance into the program is based solely on ability and not on age.

Coaches will assess students during their first session. If the coaches feel that your daughter cannot safely participate in this program, you will be notified and a refund of fees will be given.

Students should be able to swim 50m in all four strokes with the ability to maintain almost continuous swimming for an hour.

There is an absolute expectation that all swimmers fulfil their contractual obligations during the term and that they do so with the active support of their parents. Areas of particular concern to the Sports Department are the punctual attendance of Swimmers at training and appropriate parental notification of absences from these commitments.
Training Dates: Term 1, 29 January  - 26 June 2020
Training Times: 
Tuesday & Thursday 7:00am –  8:00am 
Wednesday & Friday 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Students may attend a minimum of 2 trainings and a maximum of three (3) trainings per week.
Venue: MLC School Aquatic Centre
Uniform: MLC School swimming costume 
On the rare occasions that it may be necessary for a player to miss training or a game:
  • If the inability to attend is known in advance - a written explanation (email) from the Swimmer's parent/guardian is to be given to the Head Coach in advance. This notice should be given as early as possible.
  • If the Swimmer is absent from school on the day of training - the Swimmer's parent/guardian is asked to advise the Head Coach and sports department of their child’s absence from training.
Please Note: Continued failure to attend training without a timely written explanation is unacceptable and may jeopardise players continued involvement in sport.
A member of the sports department will contact Parents/guardians of students whose non-attendance at training is not notified in the correct manner.
Coaches: Chris McAlister, Jessica Coetzee, Zach McCann, Steve Hanson
Communication: Our main form of communication with swimmers and their parents is via email and occasionally text messages. Please ensure you regularly check emails to ensure you are well informed regarding Swimming in 2020. The Sports Update in the newsletter also contains important information.
Registration: Students in Years 5 - 12 (2020) must complete their Swimming Contract by Friday 29 November 2019

Fees: NON-REFUNDABLE fee of $250 will be charged at the point of registration. 


I understand my daughter will need to attend a minimum of TWO training sessions per week. 

I understand the season runs from Term 1, 29 January - Term 2, 26 June 2020

I understand this activity involves water and the associated risks involved with swimming, including drowning.

I am registering my daughter for this activity and can confirm she can swim at least 50m unaided in all 4 strokes.

I give permission for my daughter to participate in Term 1 and 2 swimming.

I understand that while MLC School takes measures to make the sporting activities as safe as reasonably possible for participants, there is a risk that students can be injured and suffer loss (including financial loss) and damage as a result of their participation in these sporting activities, whether at training or in actual events.

I understand the registration fee is non refundable unless the coaches feel my daughter cannot participate safely. I will be notified and a refund given.
