Danebank Twilight Swim Meet
Your daughter has expressed interest in competing in the Danebank Twilight Swim Meet, held over 5 Friday afternoons in Term 1, 2018.
Dates: Friday 2nd , 9th, 16th, 23rd Feb, 2nd March 2018 (Weeks 1-5, Term 1)
Time: 5:00pm – 6:00pm (warm-up from 4:30pm)
Cost: $25 (covers 5 weeks and is billed to Term account, no refunds for missed weeks)
Venue: Danebank Aquatic Centre
Program: 50m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke, 50m Backstroke, 50m Butterfly (girls can choose to do all or some of the events)
Swimming ability: Girls MUST be able to swim 50m (2 laps of Danebank pool)
Parent Helpers: For these sessions to run we require parents to help in various roles such as
timekeeping and recording (very easy to learn!). Parent Attendance is
compulsory. A parent or guardian is required to be present at the Aquatic
Centre while your daughter is participating.
NOTE: The purpose of the twilight swimming program is to practice racing of
all four competitive strokes over a distance of 50 metres. The aim is
to make swimmers familiar with racing protocol, build endurance and
become ready to race. This differs from Learn to Swim lessons as the
focus is on skills and correct technique and mastering swimming
fundamentals before advancing to the next level.
Please return the attached slip ASAP if you wish your daughter to participate and return to Mrs Mall in the PDHPE department. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Mall.
