The Coaches are currently looking at several options to support the growing attendances at the Friday night session. One option under consideration is to increase the length of this session to 2 hours and to split the group – current Lane 3/4 level swimmers would swim at 7.30 pm and current Lane 1/2 swimmers would swim at 8.30 pm. This would be 2 x 1 hour sessions – swimmers would not be able to swim both sessions.
This would give us several advantages; each group would have more pool space (and there would be more space should numbers continue to grow) and we could increase the Coach/Swimmer ratio on both sessions.
However, in order to justify the cost of the additional pool time we would need to maintain numbers at or around the current level across both sessions, but primarily in the new senior 8.30pm – 9.30pm session. Therefore, before we commit to a trial, we would like to poll opinion from swimmers and parents/carers as to the willingness to swim at these times.
We would be grateful if you would complete the form below as soon as you can, so that we can assess potential support for this proposal.
We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have; this is currently just a proposal and depending on response we will probably trial it initially before integrating it fully into the programme.
Thanks for your support
