Preferably use the email address:



Please include the swimmers name– their group – the date of the session – the reason for absence.



Many reasons for absence are logged as attendance with notes as they are beyond the swimmers control rather than just didn’t want to show up. Relevant absence reasons included are:

Illness – Injury – School commitment – Exams – School/College visits – family holidays
