Carnegie Swimming Club Forum
This is a website for Carnegie members only.
When you join please use your swimmers full name so you are easy to find if needed.
If you leave the club, you will not be able to access the forum.

It is an information tool that assists members keep track of ongoing events within the
club, eg. galas, help/volunteers required and occassionally information regarding changes
to your child’s timetable. You have access to all parts of the main forum and also the
squad that your child is in.

Quick Start
You can navigate quickly around the site, just click on the topic that you require.
All new topics and replies have an orange flag beside them on the left, occasionally if
someone edits their topic this will not show up as ‘new’
However, you can check by looking on the right side of the topic and see the date.
Or right side of page which gives you a list of ‘latest topics’
If you check these daily you will be able to keep track of new information and,
importantly, changes to timetables.
The menu along the top of the screen is important too for updates. It will state if you
have any messages. These are ‘private messages’ sent individually and give important

The Forum is split into 3 main parts

The main body
The uptodate info
Navigation and private messaging

Everyone can view General Forum, Gala info, Training, and all can post topics or reply to

General –

  • General - This contains general info. Anyone can post anything in this area.
  • Fundraising- If the club has organised a fundraising event it will be here.
  • Club kit - If you require any club hats, bags or poolside club Tshirts place a
    message here
  • Lost and found – Speaks for itself, if you lose something at a gala or poolside, enter
    it here and parents can check kids kitbags to see if it has been
    picked up by mistake.

Gala info –

  • Competition Calendar – The seasons galas that the Club and Squads are likely to enter
  • Meet info – Information about the gala that the club are attending, warm up times,
    draft programmes can be found here.
  • Gala Entries - You enter your child for galas (after consulting coaches) in this area
    stating the swims to be entered, the total cost and finally the method
    of payment – BACS or cheque/cash to squad rep. Payment must be
    received before closing date.
    This gets locked at the closing date/time so entries must be added
    prior to this time.
  • Past Gala Entries – All gala entries that have been made.
  • Gala Acceptances – If you have entered a gala, this will tell you if your swims are
    accepted. Galas run to a tight time schedule and if there are too
    many swimmers entering, some may, unfortunately, be cut due to
    the event being oversubscribed.
  • Gala Results – Occasionally results are put on the forum, but visit
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for a comprehensive list of gala results
    Gala Reports – Speaks for itself! ….. but we are always happy to have offers of help
    as the coaches cannot always do this
  • Technical Officials – In order for a gala to take place a minimum number of Technical
    Officials are required to help, and clubs are responsible for
    supplying them
    Technical officials include Timekeepers, Judges, Starters,
    Referees, Meet managers and Recorders. These are all volunteers
    from the club
    This is where volunteers sign up to help at galas.
    Courses being held (eg timekeeping) will be posted here
    When we hold our own gala, we also need marshals and
    door entry volunteers. A message will be posted online for help.

Training –

  • General – Timetable info
  • Advice and Tips – as it says!

Squads -
You only see info for the squad that your child is in. If you cannot view the
correct squad, please contact Tony Reid, Ally McKilligan, Charlie Chalmers or
your Squad Rep
You will find General info regarding your squad here.

Up-to-date info –
Scrolling on the right side of the screen, gives you most recent topics and

Live twitter feed –
