Event: Revised swimmers badge validation sessions

What: Keego has arranged swimmers badge validation sessions for Billingshurst Cubs and Beavers. There will be two sessions with different badge stages on each. These new dates replace the originally advertised session on 18 February which has now been rescheduled.

Where: Billingshurst Leisure Centre, Station Road

When: We have split the sessions across two evenings, both running from 6pm to 8pm. We’re grateful to the Leisure Centre for letting us have the time which would otherwise be used by children’s parties

  • Saturday 4 March – badge stages 1, 2 and 3
  • Saturday 18 March – badge stages 3, 4 and 5

Wear: No need to arrive in uniform. Anyone wishing to try for their stage 3 or 5 badge will need to bring shorts and t-shirt to swim in as one element requires this.

Badges: If there is a particular stage badge that you’d like to work towards please let us know when you register so that we can make sure we have the necessary equipment. As usual we will only present you with the highest badge that you earn, even if you complete multiple stages during the session

Cost: There is a £4 pool fee which must be paid to the leisure centre in advance. Normal swimming memberships aren’t valid for this session.
If you have already paid for the February session then the leisure centre can either transfer this to one of the new March dates or give you a refund.

Who: Open to all our members. We’d welcome some non-swimming adults to help mark off the Cubs and Beavers as they complete the necessary tests. Please let Keego know if you can help.

How: You need to reserve your place at the Leisure Centre, phone 01403 787500. They are also collecting the £4 pool fee which needs to be paid in advance. There is no need to register separately with us as Keego has access to the Leisure Centre systems.
