Dear YDSC Family,
 
The Committee of Yeovil District Swimming Club regret to announce that our Head Coach, Rebecca Richards is leaving the Club on Sunday March 4th.  Her last training session will be on Wednesday 28th February.
 
Rebecca has made a very difficult but personal decision to move to the Southampton area to be with her partner John, who has his business, and already lives in that area.  She has been able to secure a position with Southampton Dolphins, a position that requires she moves sooner rather than later, and so we can only wish Rebecca and John, the very best for the future.
 
The Committee have already been reviewing several options in order to ensure that the coaching structure for the club delivers and maximises the opportunities at every level for each and every member and remains consistent with the Club Development Plan, both in the immediate and longer term.
 
Given the importance of continuity for our swimmers, particularly those who are racing in Regional and National competitions, the committee has already discussed a number of alternatives.  It is likely that we will seek an interim Senior and Junior coach arrangement for the remainder of this season.  This will ensure a full and effective coverage for each squad session and for the upcoming competitions.  It will also ensure that the very high level of standards that YDSC swimmers have already achieved, is fully maintained.
 
The more permanent arrangement will be communicated when it is secured.  It is important to remember that there will be no immediate effect on swimmers in Pre-Skills, Skills and Development 1 or to the coaching of these sessions.  For Development 2, Potential and Performance, there will be full coaching in accordance with the current timetable and we will ensure consistency with the coaching plan initiated by Rebecca until the end of this current season when a new Head Coach structure will be in place.
 
Further announcements will be made over the coming few weeks, and I am sure Rebecca will be speaking to as many of our swimmers as possible to say goodbye.  To reiterate, our timetable will remain unaffected so please attend your sessions as normal.
 
We are always very positive within YDSC, so as we say thank you and goodbye to Rebecca, its very much onwards and upwards for YDSC......Go Yeovil!
 
On behalf of YDSC Committee
 
Alan Stallard
Club Secretary
