School sport is only a part, but an important part, of a pupil's full and balanced education. A balanced approach to sport in the context of the whole extra-curricular provision of George Watson's College is strongly encouraged.
The following code of practice applies to Watson's parents spectating at matches at George Watson's College grounds and the grounds of other schools. Equally, George Watson's College would expect visiting spectators to abide by the same code.
Children appreciate the presence and support of their parents; accordingly, always set an example of good sportsmanship and give enthusiastic, but not excessive or inappropriate, support. Criticism or undermining of the officials from poolside is always unacceptable.
Parents should not enter the pool area without the express permission of the officials/member of staff in charge.
Parents and spectators should not enter the changing room areas.
George Watson's College parents are invited to assume some responsibility for making visiting players and parents feel welcome.
Senior School swim club takes place on a Tuesday lunchtime 12.50-1.30pm. Swim club is open to all pupils in S1-S6 and can be for swim training, with a coach, or indeed recreational swimming and additional fitness work. It is also a good way for swimmers with low water confidence to make improvements in their swimming.
Junior School swim team training takes place once a week starting after trials in early August. Times and dates to be confirmed in early August. Training is on Wednesday lunchtimes 12.30-1.30pm.
