This one is strictly for the 2 Swimmers!
An additional Saturday Swimming Club has been created for those serious swimmers that wants some extra time in the pool. These sessions are 45 minutes long and although there are some serious rules, the participants can use their time to work on the issues they feel needs some TLC. Available to participants depending on commitment and availability.
What you should bring along:
- Firstly lots of enthusiasm, fluids and a positive attitude!
- Swimming costume, purple Lycra/Silicone cap.
- Bring your water in a plastic water bottle. (NO glass allowed!)
- Flippers (Soft tipped) & goggles. (Recommended)
- Beanie and/or hoody are recommended during winter months to cover your ears and head after swimming.
PLEASE NOTE: Your child should attend lessons regularly to ensure good progress. Training to increase your swimming fitness level and endurance can be very tiring and takes a lot of dedication. Praise your child for his/her dedication and help him replace lost nutrients by providing a low-fat chocolate milkshake to drink after his/her swim session. Low-fat chocolate milk contains the right mix of carbs and protein to refuel muscles after a tough workout. It has 9 essential nutrients, including some not typically found in recovery drinks. These include B vitamins for energy and get you going, and the combo of FIVE bone-building nutrients – calcium, vitamin D, phosphorus, protein and potassium –to help athletes build and maintain strong bones and reduce risk for stress fractures.
Please remember that no swimmer is ever totally safe in and around water. Accidents do happen and being unconscious in water can only lead to one thing if quick help is not at hand. Adult supervision should always be within hands- reach, regardless of their age or swimming ability. Shallow water black-out is a real risk - swimmers should never do long underwater stints when exhausted. Please familiarize yourself with this condition. This remains applicable when on vacation or at home as well!
