All sessions remain stable. Tuesday and Saturday are the busiest sessions. Wednesday attendance is good. More swimmers need to pay by standing order if possible. Capacity at each session will be 36.
A session was missed when Edwin was unwell – the club is working on obtaining more coaches – see below.
The club has received offers of assistance from a Level 1 Coach and a Level 2 Coach. The club is further considering offering financial support to assist with coaching training to members.
The club is aware of the latest Swim England coaching requirements and is working towards ensuring this is fully complied with.
Competition attendance is good however it could be improved. The club is working towards making competitions more accessible.
There isn’t enough time to run a full swim camp in 2022 however a smaller event is being considered, subject to pool availability.
GLL price increases

Pride on the Range – 6th to 8th May 2022
The club is looking to attend Pride on the Range. Further details will follow.
Manchester Pride – August 2022
The club will not be attending Manchester Pride 2022 due to time constraints.
Social diary is to be reviewed to ensure annual events are included.
It was noted that the pool party is shorter by one hour this year and so the bake off will be moved to the picnic.
Will run the same format as last year – will be the Sunday of Manchester pride and will include the bake off.
The social lane will be maintained by the club. Attendance by social swimmers is variable. If the lane exceeds 6 swimmers then the most competent/willing will be encouraged to move to a teaching or a coached lane.
