New swimming Times From September 3rd 2018

Posted version new swimming timetable2018

As you are aware the pool at Torbay leisure centre, Clennon valley, has been closed for refurbishment over the summer. Paignton swimming club has been working with Lex leisure who run the centre to sort the pool times and space that we will be using on our return in September.

With the differences in the pool we have had to have a complete review of squad sizes and training times. The club will from our return to Clennon valley in September be running four separate squads; to allow for the restrictions in pool size and to comply with health and safety regulations. These squads also have new names for a new era.

Whilst we realise that there are changes to the previous times that you maybe swimming, we have tried to be as consistent on days as we could. At present we have managed to bring all squads back to Clennon on all but the normal elected sessions on Tuesdays and Thursday which will remain at Brixham. We have also introduced a long course session at the Mount Kelly 50m facility, Tavistock.

Attached to this email and on the website is the complete layout of the times that we will be using upon our return. Unfortunately this has not been as much as we were originally promised and compromises have had to be made. We are still in talks with Lex leisure about the future.

Land Warm Up For Swimmers

An effective swimming specific warm up is vital if you want your swimmers to perform to their best in the pool.

We have worked with British Swimming to produce a guide to pre-pool routines for swimmers aged approximately 12 to 16.

The warm ups should be performed in the order:

  1. Raise
  2. Mobilise
  3. Activate
  4. Prime

Swimmers should perform three to five repetitions for between two and four exercises of each sub-stage.

For the prime and activate stages, once a swimmer is able to complete all exercises with good technique and control, they can move to the next level.
