Training Times

Junior swimmers are expected to attend their Friday night session on a regular basis.  All other sessions are optional – but the more you swim, the faster you’ll improve. Sessions are structured around the abilities of Friday evening training groups as shown below. If you have questions about the suitability of a particular session, just ask one of our coaches whether it would be right for you.

Coronavirus Update

September 2020: Several training sessions are now running, in line with Swim England guidelines. The session times page has been updated to show current sessions, and our corona response page explains changes to our procedures. 

Sessions now need to be booked in advance by contacting James or Danny and letting them know you'd like to swim. Everyone needs to complete this health declaration before returning to training and must be familar with all of our covid response procedures. Arrive at the pool 'beach-ready' - changing rooms will only be available after a session.

Please keep an eye on our social media channels and our parents WhatsApp group for any updates.
