The last weekend of lessons is this week (8th/9th July).
Lessons will start again on the 2nd / 3rd September. As we have had a bit of a disrupted block of lessons this time we will contact everyone to confirm their / groups times for the new swimming year as we towards the end of the summer holidays.
Squads will continue through to July 23rd. The pool closes for a week on the 24th July so we cannot train any longer than this date.
We are hoping to run some Wednesday morning sessions in last 3 weeks of August but will confirm this as soon as we have the pool booked.
