Training Schedule PDF

Swimmers are divided into six groups based on age, physical development, speed and ability, in line with the ASA's Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) programme. Two further groups exist for experienced swimmers wishing to maintain their membership as Masters and/or Fitness (Group 7, by invitation) and whilst at college/university for existing club members during holiday periods (Group 8).

Swimmers are encouraged to attend as many as possible of the sessions to which they are entitled, in order to benefit from all the different aspects of the varied training plans (different coaching targets and objectives for different sessions), and to build their stamina and stroke development. A beneficial by-product of the swimming programme is that it has a pronounced effect on levels of general health and fitness, as well as appearance and well-being. For children who enjoy other sports, whether with schools or clubs, their swimming training and competition experience will have a direct crossover benefit.

Berkhamsted Swimming Club swims at three pools: The Knox Johnston Sports Centre (KJ), Everyone Active Berkhamsted (BSC) and Everyone Active Tring (TR)

The only times there is no training or adjusted training times are: Bank Holidays; the August two week shutdown; pool issues (maintenance/fault); Berkhamsted School galas, or if there are coaching issues. All training sessions continue as normal on dates when competitions are taking place, except where a BSC event is scheduled during the normal training session(s). All members will be advised of any changes.

 

Training times at Knox Johnston will vary during State School holiday periods and these will be advised by e-mail before each school holiday period.
