Head Coach Announcement
Having given serious consideration to his personal situation, Scott has decided to stand down as Head Coach and leave RASCALS with immediate effect.
This has been a hard decision for Scott, but he feels that it is important for him to take a step back from club swimming to concentrate on his family commitments.
Scott will continue his work with DXDS and we wish him, Robyn and their family all the very best for the future.
RASCALS Presentation Night
Friday 19th December 2014 6.45pm for 7.00pm Start
The Post Mill Centre, South Normanton, Derbyshire, DE55 2EJ
The above are details of our Presentation Night, to which all Swimmers, Lifesavers and their families are invited.
This was a new venue for us last year and the feedback was extremely positive, except for the amount of food. We didn't quite get it right!!
It is always difficult to estimate numbers attending, so this year the Committee have decided it will be a ticket only affair. Swimmers/Lifesavers will continue to have free entry and parents and friends will be charged £2, as in previous years, but you must get a ticket in advance.
So, if you are planning to come to this very enjoyable event, and share our Swimmers and Lifesavers successes, please email me with the number of tickets you need, both for your Swimmer/Lifesaver and extra tickets for parents etc.
Hope you can make it.
The Committee are pleased to announce that RASCALS has been awarded Swim21 Club Essential again for the coming year.
For all those who do not know, Swim21 is the ASA’s recognised kitemark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable affiliated clubs and RASCALS has had Swim21 Status now for over nine years.
The Club has to submit evidence to the Regional and National Panel of Swim21 each year and in particular information on the swim squads, the teaching pool, our Timekeepers, Judges, Referees and all those involved in the running of RASCALS.
The Committee would like to thank all those who have provided the necessary information and time spent in making it another successful submission.

14th September 2014
The Committee have been informed by the Manager at Repton Swimming Pool that they are having a few problems with the pool and the date of Gala 1 the pool will now be closed! They have offered us an alternative date and so Gala 1 has moved to :
Saturday 8th November 2014 - Gala 1
Saturday 29th November 2014 - Gala 2
The address of the pool is :
The Swimming Pool at Repton School Sports Complex,
The forms for the two events with times etc can be downloaded here. Hopefully this will be the last change!
As you are all aware, the Main Pool at Alfreton needs to be closed for repairs to the tiling, and we have now been advised that the work will commence on Monday 8th September. The expected date for the pool to reopen is Monday 24th November, but this cannot be confirmed until the work starts and a full evaluation has been carried out.
The Teaching Pool at Alfreton will remain open during this period, so all small pool lessons at Alfreton and Ripley will continue as normal. Changeovers and any interim changes will be notified by slips as normal.
All Main Pool sessions will be at Ripley Leisure Centre during the closure period.
These changes will begin on Tuesday 9th September and Wednesday 10th September until further notice.
Due to the need to accommodate everyone in terms of length of sessions etc., the temporary arrangements at Ripley are:-
8.00am to 9.00am – all sessions as normal
3.00pm to 4.00pm - TBA
4.00 to 5.00pm - Grade 6 (normally Alfreton 8pm to 9pm Wednesday)
5.15pm to 7.15pm – all sessions as normal
7.00pm to 8.00pm – Platinum, Gold & Silver
All sessions as normal with the addition of Intermediate Squad 6.15pm to 7.15pm (normally Alfreton Wednesday 8pm to 9pm)
7.00am to 9.00am
- Bronze (normally Alfreton 8pm to 9pm Tuesday)
- Platinum, Gold & Silver (normally Alfreton 7pm to 9pm Tuesday)
8.00am to 9.00am
- Blue (normally Alfreton 8pm to 9pm Tuesday)
We appreciate that some of the temporary times are not ideal for everyone, but obviously we have to use the times that we have been allocated by Places for People taking into account all of the other leisure centre users. We would like to thank Alfreton, Heanor & Ripley Leisure Centre Staff for all of their efforts and support to accommodate our swimmers during this difficult period.
Once the sessions are restored at Alfreton, we will update the plan again as some of the extra time will continue to be available at Ripley. The website will also be updated as the work progresses at Alfreton.
RASCALS Committee have been advised that Ripley Surf Lifesaving Club (RSLC) has been formed as a completely separate Club to run activities relating to Surf Lifesaving Great Britain (SLSGB).
Chairman: Jeremy Johnson
Secretary: Dawn Lockwood
Treasurer: Richard Crump
Please contact Dawn email@example.com for more information about RSLC.
RSLC will be an entirely new and separate organisation, not a part of or in any way affiliated to or with RASCALS and as such the RASCALS Committee do not accept any responsibility for any actions or liabilities related to RSLC or SLSGB.
Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) activity will continue as part of RASCALS.
We wish the Officers and Members every success for the future.
Also due to the temporary closure of the main pool at Alfreton Leisure Centre the Rascals Lifesaving Championships have been moved to:
William Gregg VC Leisure Centre at Hands Road, Heanor, Derbyshire, DE75 7HA
on Saturday 6th December 2014.
This year the Small Pool Party will be on Friday November 14th 2014 at The Post Mill Centre, South Normanton, Derbyshire, DE55 2EJ.
This year it will be separate to the Small Pool Championships and at a different venue as The Committee felt that the two events on the same night was a little chaotic and the Sports Hall at Ripley Leisure Centre was a little too large, so the room at The Post Mill Centre is smaller.
An Invitation with all the details and times on will be going out to the Small Pool Swimmers in September when we return from the summer holidays.

Current child protection legislation demands that anyone wishing to use photographic equipment – including mobile phones – must obtain permission from the leisure centre.
Anyone failing to obtain permission will be asked to leave and may be reported to the leisure centre and/or the police. Previous actions of this nature have resulted in prosecution.
R.A.S.C.A.L.S. have no wish to be kill-joys but we have to respect the law and also the leisure centres' own rules. Most importantly of all, we must put the safety and comfort of all the children first.
