NBSC Payments Going Forward

Dear Members

Firstly, Nuneaton & Bedworth Swimming Club, would like to thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times. Please trust that we will ensure we do everything in our power for the benefit of your children.  

Our plan with the payments going forward are as follows:

If you pay by DIRECT DEBIT

Please DO NOT cancel – we will collect payment at the end of March and then not call for any further direct debits until we know what is going on. We will keep you well informed of any information we receive.

The Direct Debit due to be taken at the end of March will cover March training, we know that this has been cancelled today (20 March) and we will take this into account when we reinstate the payments. We will ensure that this in the benefit to you and your children and not the club.

Anyone who has set a direct debit up and also made a standing order payment for March will shortly see a credit on their swim manager account to cover the fee due at the end of this month which will stop the direct debit from being taken.

If you pay by STANDING ORDER

If you are paying by Standing order ensure that you cancel these as soon as possible – BEFORE APRIL 1ST.  Once we know more about when we will be able to resume teaching/training we will communicate the best course of action for payment.

External Open Meet entries

Anyone who has already paid for their entries to Derventio I will contact you separately in due course to arrange a refund.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes to you all and take care.

Coronavirus Update 20/03/20

Following on from my update yesterday, it is clear from the committee responses that whilst they appreciate what we have been trying to do the majority would prefer us to temporarily suspend training sessions – which I completely understand, this is a worrying time for all and it is difficult to know what to do for the best.The coaches (in their coaching capacity) would like training to continue with training and are happy to do so, however, I do have to listen to & take on board the rest of the feedback and it is therefore with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that all training sessions will be ceased with immediate effect, temporarily, until further notice.We will continue to monitor and review all advice and as soon as it is deemed ok we will be back training.We will keep in regular contact with all committee, coaches and members.I have asked the coaches to think about how we can keep some form of fitness going throughout this period – some clubs have started to upload some daily fitness sessions with videos, it is really important that we keep our swimmers motivated especially as they have no school now and some have been told they cannot take their exams – I am thinking of their mental wellbeing as well as physical.

Thank you for all your support during this unprecedented and difficult time

SWIM MANAGER IS HERE

You should have received an email telling you how to log on – if you have not received one please contact chairnbsc@gmail.com with your name, childs name and email address so we can send log on details to you. There will be a couple of sessions at the pool for parents so you can see swim manager – these will be done early Feb so that we can help you set up the direct debit etc. Details will be confirmed by the end of this week and posted on here and facebook.

There is a user guide on the system and we sent a very basic logon guide with the log on email.

Everything will be managed through swim manager, when you 1st log in you will need to read & accept all the club policies and also then update all personal details, medical & photo consent options, the user guide will cover all this.

For Bay 5 upwards this will include all payments which will change to direct debit rather than standing order – you will receive an email asking you to set this up. Feb fees should be paid by standing order, this will then need to be cancelled and a direct debit set up – this will be detailed in the email. From 1st March bay 5  & above monthly fees will be taken by direct debit.

Swim school payments will continue to be paid by standing order, but parents will have the same access to swim manager as the squads.

Latest News

Dear Members

On behalf of the committee we hope that you are all keeping safe & well during these strange times. We held a virtual committee meeting last night thanks to the powers of technology and wanted to update you all on a few things: AGM – As you may be aware this was due to be held on 4th June – given the current situation we feel it best that we postpone the AGM until early October. The committee have all agreed to remain in post until then – I hope you will agree that this is the best way forward, as even if we could hold a virtual AGM, nominating and seconding for posts and voting would not be easy. The committee also felt that it would not be the right time to handover should there be changes in personnel for any roles and felt that stability is what is needed currently.We have spoken with other clubs and Swim England regarding postponing an AGM and they have advised that given the extenuating circumstances this is permissible. Link to Swim England advice pages:

https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/coronavirus-faqs-answered/

June Open Meet – The committee have made the decision that cancelling the June open meet would be the right thing to do in the current climate. Swim England have cancelled all National meets until end August currently and even if we are allowed back to train the swimmers would not be race fit and we don’t want to put extra pressure on them after an enforced break from training.

 March Fees – As you are aware the treasurer sent a note out to all members regarding fees, if you pay by direct debit we will make sure that once Aprils direct debit has been taken (for March training fees) then we will not request anymore until we are back training. (If we are back in June then it will be July when a payment is taken). If you pay by standing order then you need to cancel your standing order and restart it once we are back training Once we know when we are back training we will confirm how much the fees for that month will be, this will take into account a 50% credit for March as we were unable to train for the whole month.

 If you have any queries or concerns re any of the above then please contact me chairnbsc@gmail.com
