James Baker appointed as ASA National Manager of Water Polo
ASA SW General Secretary for the Water Polo Committee, James Baker (Exeter Water Polo & Swimming Club / Devon) has been appointed by the ASA to lead the development and strategic direction of the discipline going forward.
After a recruitment exercise James was selected from a pool of candidates. James has played Water Polo for 25 years for Exeter, and was appointed Chairman of the Exeter Water Polo & Swimming Club in 2002. Since then James has been the long-standing Head Coach of Devon County Water Polo, and more recently the General Secretary for Water Polo for the ASA SW Region as well as a Coach at the high performance centres operated by England Talent.
New Masters Officer
Our Masters Swimming Officer, Sharon Lock, is now in post and working towards gaining a full understanding of the ways the ASA currently supports Masters swimmers, and how we can improve the service we provide.
The next stage in developing Masters Swimming is to involve Masters directly, gaining your support as we move forward. This will allow us to harness your knowledge, skills, enthusiasm and passion for the sport.
All ASA Masters swimmers are therefore invited to join Sharon at ASA Head Office in Loughborough on 1 November 2014 for a one day conference.
The day will run from 9:30 until 4:30 and will include morning and afternoon sessions which will consist of:
Welcome & Introduction to day
Guest Speaker: Steve Bratt (Otters Head Coach)
Guest Speaker: Jane Asher (via video)
Open Forum with an opportunity to Discuss issues relating to Masters with the Committee and ASA Professional Staff
Breakout Sessions and Workshops
Where do we go from here and building momentum
A detailed programme of the day will be released in September but places are limited so please make sure you fill in a rRegistration form to guarantee a place.
The conference is completely FREE; lunch and refreshments will be provided in the break.
We hope to see you there on the day to help us build a dynamic and vibrant Masters infrastructure.
Kind regards,The ASA Membership Team
Devon County ASA would like to bring to the attention of all Gala competitors, volunteers, coaches and spectators the need to respect the space in the changing room and associated lockers that are reserved for the Pisces disabled swimming group on Sunday mornings.
The area is quite clearly cordoned off and signed from both the central corridor and the changing village.
Some swimmers access it off the poolside, through the showers near the diving pit. We ask that you don’t do that. There are other showers that you should use at this time.
Volunteers and officials also have been using the lockers and we respectfully ask that you use the ones in the main corridor at the top end nearest to the officials room on Sundays.
The Pisces swimmers have specific needs and have often found that there are no lockers available for them in their space on Gala days. They, unlike us don’t have the option of going to another space and find this very distressing. This is not hearsay – I’ve seen it because I’ve made it my business to engage and monitor this problem.
We are all so fortunate to be able to use this brilliant facility in Plymouth. There is so much space for everyone – please may I ask you to think about the Pisces group next time we are in the Life Centre on a Sunday and not impact on the tiny area that they use when we have so much.
With very many thanks, Sally Davies Hon. Trophy Steward. Devon County A.S.A.
