The coaching staff and parent support group provides outstanding encouragement and assistance for members at all levels. A significant part of this is the education of parents and their important role in their swimmer’s development and progress.
As is the case in most community organisations, families are expected to participate in the running of carnivals in which their children are swimming and in club fundraising activities. This not only shares the club responsibilities among everyone involved, but also helps to create an atmosphere of social interaction, which has been a cornerstone of the club’s success over the years. Parental participation provides an excellent example for children.
Communication is the key to successfully helping families become part of the excitement and success of the NBSC, and this is achieved through the website, email, newsletter and coach and parent verbal communication and encouragement.
