Devonport Swim Club Policies & Guidelines

ENTERING THE NAVY BASE

All Masters: please make sure you have your membership card to show at the gate. No longer will the navy sentries allow you in if you should forget your card.

All members: On entering and leaving the Navy Base, you should be appropriately dressed. This includes NO JANDALS OR SHOES WITHOUT A BACK STRAP.

LANE ETIQUETTE (Masters)

Coached swimming is in a squad not an individual swim set, so please swim as a group (if you arrive late this means slotting in to where the group is at, not starting from the beginning);

Swim in a lane appropriate to your speed and ability;

Seed yourself in a lane with a view to avoiding lane congestion, particularly during busy sessions;

Be open to and accept the coach asking you to move to a particular lane or within your lane

Swim in the first two or three lanes only (check the signs at the near end of the pool) – the remainder of the pool is dedicated to navy swimmers

Devonport Swim Club MASTERS Code of Conduct

JUNIOR SWIMMERS

Arrive for training at least 10 minutes before the session start time – entry into the Naval Base will be refused if the coach has already escorted squad members in.

Wait responsibly at the monument for an escort onto the navy base.

Obey instructions from Naval Security Staff

Bring ID card and appropriate gear (goggles, swimwear, fins)

Dress appropriately (not in towels, covered shoes, or footwear with backstrap). Please note that the Navy security may refuse entry if appropriate clothes aren’t worn.

Devonport Swim Club JUNIOR Code of Conduct

ALL MEMBERS


SQUAD PLACES CANNOT BE HELD

If a swimmer stands down from coached sessions for a term their place is not ‘held’ for a subsequent term but they may go on the wait list for the appropriate squad. Being a buddy swimmer does not hold swimmer’s place for coached sessions.

UNPAID FEES – CARDS TO BE RETURNED

If members cease paying club fees in any term they are required to return their card to Cathy Denne. Any member who has unpaid fees and uses their card to enter the pool, risks having their membership revoked and the navy being advised accordingly.
