GIVING BACK

VOLUNTEERING

VOLUNTEER AT YOUR CLUB

Swimming clubs don’t run themselves. Club swims and events don’t just happen. If you are a member of a swimming club, why not volunteer your services? You needn’t run for president of the committee to make a worthwhile contribution to your club. Cake bakers and timekeepers are always needed, and many clubs also offer opportunities to take coaching qualifications so you can give back by being able to coach your team mates. Think about how your skills could make a contribution to club life: if you love organising holidays, why not organise a club trip to a cold water swimming competition; if you have good IT skills, volunteer to update the club website; or if you love writing, offer to edit the club newsletter.

About Outdoor Swimmer

Flicking through my Facebook feed on a weekend I am always astounded by the sheer variety of challenges swimmers around the world take on, from wild dips to awe-inspiring marathon swims. This past month Caroline Block finished just short of a two-way North Channel crossing; Chloë McCardel announced her new world record attempt – a four-way English Channel; and Sarah Thomas swam into the record books with a 104-mile swim in Lake Champlain. It often makes me feel very inadequate! But sometimes swimming is about more than just swimming This issue we look at how you can give back to the swimming community, and Becky Horsbrugh visits Bangladesh to work for a drowning prevention charity. Author Victoria Whitworth talks about the transformative power of swimming outdoors and coach Mat Hudson explains how to swim strong for life. Plus, wildlife, nutrition, training, wild swimming and reviews. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming. Jonathan Cowie Editor
