London Swimming Masters believes that there may be many masters swimmers in the region that would like to participate in and hopefully benefit from a development day in a 50m pool. This is a fantastic opportunity for all masters to gain experience in a 50m pool, but especially so for those looking to familiarise themselves before the Europeans and Nationals. There will be two pool sessions where stroke improvement drills will be practised and each swimmer’s performance will be analysed and possible improvements identified by a Level 3 qualified coach. In between, there will a seminar covering swimming specific exercises and also those for improving core strength, mobility and flexibility. Please see the pdf for more details.
On Monday 30th July at 18:30 will we have fun-night for all the squads. The programme of events to be finalised but will include: Relays; Silly swimming; Team events and much much more. We will also be announcing the new club captains for 2018 - 2019 so again this will be your chance to get to know them and for them to get to know you. Training, therefore, is cancelled for Chrome, Silver, Gold and Top squads. Platinum and Masters training is on as normal for those who want to train after the fun night session ends.
As always, the club will take a short break in August and then some light training before resuming the full training schedule in September Normal training finishes on Monday 30 July, followed by the two-week break. The Summer timetable runs from 13 August to 2nd September but please not that there is no swimming on Monday 27th August as it is a Bank Holiday. Normal training resumes on Monday 3rd September. Please also note that coaches for the sessions are subject to change due to absences. Attached is a timetable but you can also check the home page for Today's Training. Have a great break everyone.
The Pool at Basildon Sporting Village can be used as either two 25m pools or one 50m pool. Sadly they are currenty experiencing technical problems and it is stuck in 25m mode. Therefore their End Of Season Gala this weekend will be Short Course. They will be using both 25m pools for warm up and swim down purposes. THE LICENSE AND DETAILS FOR THIS EVENT REMAIN UNCHANGED Whilst a few of you have just taken part at the Beachfield open at the start of July we would still encourage you to attend this open as all competition experience is beneficial and you could still PB from your last event. If you really do not want to attend then the promoter is offering a refund and will withdraw you entirely from this open. Please email Lorraine via competitions@orpingtonojays.com by 6pm today, the 18th, if you wish to pull out of this competition. The acceptance list with warm-up times is available via our homepage or the Competition menu item.
