SWEM / SWIMMING

 

The season was opened with our Colour Gala. We had over 70 events from u.7 to u.14 with more than half of the school participating and earning points for their respective colour houses.

 

In totaal het ons aan 10 swemgalas deelgeneem waarvan 3 ons eie galas was. Ons het 43 goue medaljes, 35 silwer medaljes en 35 bronz medaljes behaal hierdie seisoen.

 

Ons het ook ‘n baie suksesvolle Swemmarathon by die skool aangebied. Seuns vanaf o.7 tot o.13 kon hieraan deelneem waar hulle gekyk het hoeveel lengtes hulle in ‘n sekere tyd kan swem. Hierdie leerders is dan per lengte geborg. Die ouers het hierdie geleentheid ook baie geniet , van die pa’s het saam met hul seuns geswem terwyl ander solank die vure op die gras aangesteek het. Ons het ‘n totale bedrag van R19 589.30 ingesamel.  Ons het hierdie geld gebruik om nuwe toerusting vir swem aan te koop.

 

During this season two of our learners were selected to represent the Boland Primary Schools swimming team. Another swimmer also represented South Africa at the Cana Zone IV Invitational Swimming Championships in Luanda, Angola.

 

In term 4, it was announced that another two learners were selected to participate in the South African Schools’ Championships in Gauteng as part of the Western Cape Swimming team in December.

 

OEFENTYE

Tydens die kwartaal word daar vir alle A-groep swemmers, o.7 tot o.13 twee oefeninge per week op die oefenrooster uitgesit.  Die B-groep swemmers het twee oefeninge per week.  Alle oefening vind plaas in die swembad by die skool.

 

VERVOERREELINGS TYDENS GALAS

Leerders sal vier dae voor ‘n gala ingelig word per galabriefie of hulle aan ‘n gala moet deelneem. Hierdie briefie maak ook voorsiening vir die opsie om van skoolvervoer gebruik te maak. ‘n Skoolbussie sal dus met elke gala swemmers vervoer na die gala indien nodig. 

 

CLOTHING

Practice:

It is expected of each swimmer to wear a swimming cap during a practice at school.

Learners are allowed to wear any swimming costume during a practice at school, this excludes board shorts. If a learner decides to use his own equipment and not the school’s then he must have the following at every practice.

  • Kicker board
  • Flippers
  • Pool Buoy

If a swimmer cannot attend a practice he must inform the coach. No swimmer is allowed to send a message via another swimmer to excuse himself from a practice.

It is expected of a swimmer to attend at least one practice at school if he also swims for a club. If a swimmer swims for a club the coach must be informed and the necessary arrangements must be made in terms of which days he will be attending practice at school. 

Galas:

When a swimmer participates in a gala he must be neatly dressed in his BPS blue PT shorts and white BPS shirt. Swimmers are allowed to wear trainers or attend the gala bare feet. Each swimmer must, when participating in a gala, wear his “Klein Boishaai” swimming costume and he must wear a “Klein Boishaai” swimming cap.

TOERUSTING

Indien die swemmer nie sy eie toerusting het nie, voorsien die skool die swemmer met toerusting tydens ‘n oefening. Dit sluit “flippers”, “pool buoy” en ‘n skopbordjie in. Hierdie toerusting bly by die skool. 

 

How do we choose a swimming team?

Swimmers are chosen according to times. These times are determined at the beginning of the year at the colour gala. The four best times for each swimming style will be chosen for the A-group swimming team. 

Learners who want to improve their swimming must please attend the B-group swimming practice. There will be a possibility for a B-group swimmer to be moved up to the A-group swimming group if the swimmers meet the A-group criteria. 

No A-group swimmer is allowed to practice with the B-group swimmers and no B-Group swimmer is allowed to practice with the A-group. A B-group swimmer is only allowed to practice with an A-group if the coach askes the swimmer to attend the practice.
