Club Captains
 

Thame Swimming Club have two club captains, one for the boys and one for the girls. Their role is to represent the swimmers at relevant committee meetings, to represent the club at events and to help the coach organize and motivate the swimmers at galas.

The club captains are chosen by the coaching team from swimmers in the County & District and Performance training groups, they are swimmers who are committed to the sport, train and compete regularly and hence understand what it takes to progress in swimming. The coaches select on the basis of commitment to training and competition, attitude and what the candidates put back into the club. They then discuss this at the coaching meeting before the AGM to select the candidates.

Each Captain and Vice Captain serves for a period of 1 year. They stand down at the AGM and are either re-selected by the coaches or replaced with a new candidate.
