As a result we have taken the decision to pause all Leander Swimming Club Squads and Academy activity immediately after the sessions tonight, Tuesday March 17th 2020. Please do not attend any training sessions...

As a result, we are removing the monthly classroom sessions from the timetable, and instead will run them less frequently next term, with advance notice so you can get the dates in the diary. As a result, there will be no classroom sessions on the firset Tuesday of the monthg for the 11s and 12s or the first Thursday...
