Regular Swim Training Sessions
Winter Pool Training
This year's off-season pool training will start on Friday 2nd October and will continue on consecutive Fridays. The sessions start at 7:00pm at the Helston Leisure Centre, last an hour and will cost £3.00. We have the entire pool booked, which gives us the ability to cater for varying pace and ability.
This year Dave Cracknell or Phil Knuckey will coach the sessions.
The sessions will be progressive and are aimed at improving speed and technique. As such, the sessions are aimed at people who already have basic frontcrawl skills and are comfortable swimming at least 100m. Swim fins and hand paddles are used during these sessions. Some are available at the pool, but if you have your own, please bring them with you. More advice on swim 'toys' can be found on the Training aids page, which gives a breakdown of various aids and some simple drills.
Summer Open water Training
In the summer the club leaves the pool and transfer the Friday night swim to a variety of the local beaches. These sessions are designed to cater for those wanting to move into open water races, build open water confidence or just carry on the progress they have made over the winter. For safety reasons, minimum ability levels will apply and these will be posted closer to the time.
