Swim Smooth Perth Winter 2015 Squad Applications are now open!


Dear Swimmers

Thank you kindly for your recent feedback on whether you felt the PAYG card system (as has been in place for the last 8 years) was still the best solution for accessing the Swim Smooth Perth Squad. The feedback was tremendous and plentiful and definitely in favour of sticking with this method which pleases me as I do feel it works out best all round too. Its also comforting to know that we have been getting it right for so long now as well!

Given the upcoming break whilst the pool is closed from the 6th to the 21st June, I thought it prudent to make best use of this available admin time for myself to enhance the session delivery / offerings / sign-up process, and to ensure that we are attaining the desired number of swimmers per session given such an extensive wait list of nearly 400 people. It seems a shame to be forfeiting other keen-bees if space is truly available in certain sessions, I'm sure you'll agree. In fact, I'm sure you all have a friend, colleague or even a family member waiting desperately in the wings for a spot! On that note, if you plan to take some time off this winter and relinquish your spot and don't wish to go to the extent of filling a whole form to do so - please just reply back to this email and let me know if / when you're likely to be back.

Due to the nature of the flexible PAYG card system for you the swimmer, it's always tricky for us to know exactly how many people might show on a particular day, but with your help and input and this fancy feedback form, we should be able to refine this whole process better than we've ever been able to do before. Doing so will ensure consistency of numbers year-round and help to reduce the impact of an increase in lane hire fees and altered booking procedure for the coming FTY. I'm trying to cover all our bases essentially to keep offering the best value possible to you the swimmers and to allow us to keep using the wonderful Claremont Aquatic Centre as much as we are doing.

So, please complete this form BEFORE 12PM ON THURSDAY 18TH JUNE 2015* and to the best of your ability to allow us to more accurately gauge squad attendance over the coming months:

The form should take you about 10 to 15 minutes to complete (it took me about 5 weeks to write and test - LOL!).

Given the super flexible nature of the squad's PAYG card system, we are hoping that you won't mind sparing this time to help us out with lane management and forecasted attendance which in turn will better help you enjoy your session knowing that we can regulate this as effectively as possible.

Thank you!

*only applications received before this date will be accepted in the 1st round of applications before opening any additional space to our extensive wait list of nearly 400 people on the 23rd June 2015. If for whatever you cannot complete this form before that point, please email us at swimsmooth@me.com as soon as possible to account for you. Equally, please forward this link and ask your lane buddies if they've completed theirs to ensure that we don't miss any of the regulars out!

Kind regards
