UPDATE: IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR JPS AND LAND TRAINING JPS & SPS

UPDATE TO BELOW:  

We now have confirmation of the land training times when the new timetable is introduced on the 8th of September.
 
1st group JPS will be 3:30 - 4:00
2nd group JPS will be 4:00 - 4:30
 
SPS land training will be 5:30 - 6:15.
 
Land training times on the 25th August and 1st September will remain the same as last season, unless you have already been notified by Emma that your group has changed.
 
 
 
 

Hi all,

 

The need for additional pool time has been identified by the coaches for some time and I am really happy to say that we have been able to secure an additional hour on Sunday evenings.  The swimmers will benefit from this longer session and in turn the club will see this when competing.

 

The following squads’ session times will change from 8th September 2019 (sessions before this date will keep to the old timetable).

 
  • Development and Advanced Development session will move to 4-5pm.
 
  • JPS – land training session 1 will be 3.30 – 4pm; land training second group will be 4-4:30pm.
 

            The pool session will be 5 – 7pm. Swimmers are expected to attend for the whole session and not just one hour.

 
  • SPS pool time will remain the same – land training times are to be confirmed.
 

There is no change to small pool sessions.

 

This additional time obviously incurs costs for the club which will, initially, be subsidised with the money raised at the June Open Meet (so a huge thank you to everyone who volunteered) however this cannot be relied upon in the future.  Each year the club looks at its costs, and this change will be included in the next review.
