Well done guys you smashed it out of the park!!!!
For a seaside club with much less water time that many of the big city clubs this highlights the excellent coaching standard that goes into getting these kids to the peak condition at just the right time. Our thanks go to Jon, Kev and the rest of our great coaching and teaching teams for their ongoing commitment and planning. Not forgetting the long suffering parents who spent long, hot sticky days in both pools and several that help the coaching team on poolside as team managers

Swim Training Polite Reminder – Punctual Attendance

Parents & Swimmers Please Note.

Swimmers please do not attempt to access the pool if you are any more than 10 minutes late for your session. This rule is to prevent injuries as you are much more likely to be injured if you miss warm up. Each session has a 15 minute warm up incorporated into all sets by the teachers & coaches.

How important is warming up before swimming?

With swimming using large groups of muscles it is essential that you use efficient movements and maintain a low heart rate so as not to fatigue the body. … Warming up increases body temperature, which reduces the chance for muscle and tendon injuries.

How long should swimming warm up last?

At bare minimum, your warm-up period should be five minutes long. If you are practicing an intricate sport like gymnastics or ballet, you need much longer than five minutes to properly warm up. Also, when your muscles are extremely sore from a previous workout, you will need to take more time to warm up.

Please respect this rule as it is there to reduce your risk of injury.

Thank You for respecting this rule……….  Safe & Happy Swimming !!
