Make sure you are ready to get back in the pool!

COVID graphic

It’s a go for all squads from Monday 26th April 2021.

Make sure you don’t get left on the blocks. All swimmers must have submitted SASA registration payments and completed the Health Screening and Self Declaration forms to get back in the pool.

If you think you may have missed one, please either contact the membership secretary or club covid liaison straight away to ensure you can get back in the water as soon as possible.

See you on the 26th!

Just a little bit longer…

Please be patient while we wait to hear when we can get back in the pool following the most recent update from Scottish First Minister. To keep up to date with club activities please join the Monifieth Swim Club Members Facebook Group. Once a return to the pool and training activities have been established, the calendar and training schedule on the website will be updated.

Bag Pack Saturday 30th March

Get packing…to help raise funds for the club camps – Saturday the 30th March at Tesco Monifieth from 12-4. Fundraising plays a vital role in subsidising camps and other activities for all the swimmers so do your bit and get involved.

MSC Corporate Sponsor!

Monifieth Swim Club – proudly sponsored by McDonalds

The Club has secured a sponsorship deal with McDonalds situated at Ethiebeaton Park through Nick McPartland the Franchisee. This three year deal will involve a substantial and much needed cash injection into the Club over this period to spend on equipment and items on the ‘wish list’. Some sponsored kit will also be provided for kids attending Camps the Club runs and discount vouchers for the restaurant to be issued to each family (terms and conditions will apply). 

The Club has also been offered the restaurant to use for any fundraising events, for example bake sales, bucket collections and the use of the notice board for advertising purposes. 

You will notice over the next few weeks that our social media will now include the McDonalds logo and we will have a banner displaying MSC and McDonalds displayed at galas. The Club will also be inviting some of the its members to take part in a photo session for the local press and to partner the restaurant in a local “Spring Clean/Keep Scotland Beautiful Event”. 

Although initially it is a three year deal, Nick has the restaurant for a number of years and we are hoping the Clubs relationship with him can blossom and develop for many years to come. It is a fantastic boost for MSC not just in monetary terms but in exposure aswell and I am sure you will all agree that Nick’s generosity is appreciated.
