Fills each slot with 60 swimmers – 120 in total. Liaises with the Schools Co-ordinator in Shoreline.

Arranges the annual enrolment day in September for Term 1. Manages the waiting lists so that places can be filled during the year. Manages re-enrolment for the 2nd and 3rd term.

Athletics

St Brigid’s athletics sessions take place on Thursdays at 3 – 4pm and 4 – 5 pm at Shoreline Sports Park, Charlesland.

Activities include long jump, high jump, hurdles, javelin, shot put, discus, hammer, plyometrics, ladder drills, fun orienteering, archery, rock wall climbing and rounders.

All activities help to increase the child’s sporting abilities in a fun environment.  Children develop key skills such as balance, hand to eye co-ordination and posture, and benefit from participating in many sporting activities in a relaxed atmosphere.

One parent volunteers each week in order to supervise the signing in and out of children and assist with any need which may arise during the session such as an injury or bathroom break.

Usually each parent is only required to supervise once or twice during the year.
