Autumn term: A return to normal? Fingers crossed

As we head into a new diving year, we hope that the lifting of restrictions paves the way for a gradual return to normal. The situation is being monitored carefully, following government and Swim England guidance, and the plan is for classes to be returned to regular sizes from September.

 

We are still headhunting a new club chairman. While the role is not regularly time-consuming, we need someone to lead the team and help Kirsty, Annika and others take the club forward. This involves liaising with internal and external stakeholders and ensuring all our members' best interests are at the fore. If you are able to assist, please email Cooky – Cooky@stardiving.org 

 
We are also looking for a new club treasurer. This role is less frequent but has responsibility for the club's financial health, reporting to the club committee, the Charity Commission and Swim England as necessary. We would welcome anyone with financial experience and understanding of accounts to step forward and have a chat. Please email Annika – Annika@stardiving.org

 

Congratulations to Laura Neall, one of our adult divers and a coach, who has agreed to join us on a permanent contract. She has been part of the club for several years in an ad-hoc capacity. Her skills with the divers, willingness to learn and aspirations to coach some great talent made her the ideal candidate to increase our permanent staff. Well done, Laura!
 
Her joining also allows us to start the hunt for new divers and reach out to local schools to run a talent identification (TID) programme, starting in September. We get divers at all levels by reaching out to the community in this way. If you are able to help us get the foot in the door at your school, please email Kirsty – Kirsty@stardiving.org

 

Lastly for now, congratulations to our new divers of the term: Caroline and Seth. Both have impressed the coaches with their enthusiasm, focus and attitude at training, deservedly winning the termly accolade. Read about them in the 'Divers of The Term' section.
