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 !!







No Swimming Training on Sunday 18th or 25th November

Please note there will be no swimming training on Sunday 18th or 25th November due to Club Championships and SADSA annual gala.
