Changes to A-Squad trainings times


Dear Parent/Swimmer

As a committee we have been working on ways to look at the number of late evenings our swimmers are out.Working closely with the coaching team and Leisuredrome manager we have secured a change in our Tuesday night training.

From May 2nd 2016 A-squad training will commence at 6.30pm and finish at 8.30pm giving the swimmers an extra half hour training per week.

If you have any concerns regarding this change please do not hesitate in contacting me or the committee however if you could notify the squad coach Mark McKinney as well please.

We are committed to look at Wednesday night as well however this change is not as easy. The committee will notify all swimmers/parents about any potential change as soon as we find a solution.
