Club Governance

How your club is run

Executive Committee

The club is run on a day to day basis by a voluntary executive committee. The committee is elected each December at the club's annual general meeting. More...

Club Constitutional Rules

The club has a constitution that is approved by the ASA and describes the legal standing of the club and how it should operate. The constitution is updated every four years and has to be approved by the membership at an Annual General Meeting. The current constitution was last revised in 2013.

Chief Coach

The Chief Coach is responsible for developing and running the training programme. The Chief Coach is appointed by the Executive Committee on a twelve month contract. Our current Chief Coach, Gill Rankin, is a Level 3 qualified coach and has been part of Leyland Barracudas for many years


The club is almost entirely run by volunteers. The only paid role is that of the Chief Coach. Volunteers act in the following roles:

  • Members of the Executive Committee
  • Welfare Officer
  • Coach
  • Poolside Helper
  • Competition Official
  • Competition Helper

Without sufficient volunteers in these roles we don't have a club and we constantly need new volunteers, particularly from the families of swimmers just starting their swimming careers.


Job descriptions for these roles will be added in the near future. If you are interested in volunteering then please speak any committee member
