Sqaud Swimmers – Catch up call

As we look to try and return to swimming sessions we would like to offer the squad swimmers a chance to meet with Val and Michelle via Zoom.

These sessions are to help answer any questions you may have, and help support you in getting back into training. For many of you this will be the longest break from swimming you have had so it may be a daunting prospect.

Sessions will be in 20 minutes slots and will be held virtually via Zoom. We are hoping to run the first sessions from 6pm on Monday July 6th. To arrange a session please email Val –

For those under 18 we will need a parent/guardian in the background too but the meetings are to hear the swimmers views and any concerns.
