Training session times

Initially most new swimmers start in groups Development 1 or 2, therefore they will swim 2/3 sessions per week. As skills develop they will slowly start to swim with higher frequency. Could all swimmers make sure that they are on pool side with their hats on ready to start swimming no later than 5 minutes before the start of a session to enable us to do some stretching exercises before the session. Could everyone also ensure that they have fins which fit.

Additional Optional Training Session

For those swimmers in squads Development 3 and above, there is an additional, optional, training session available at Urmston Leisure Centre every Friday morning, 6:00am-7:00am, Coached by Flixton Swimming Club’s Head Coach, Phil Ramsbottom.

There are two payment options for the session:-

  • £2.50 per swimmer per session on a pay-as-you-go basis (cash on the day); or
  • £8.00 per swimmer per month for all Friday am sessions (by standing order to Flixton Swim Club).

If your swimmer would like to attend, simply turn up any Friday morning and meet Phil on the poolside.  The Leisure Centre itself will be closed so, to enter the building during the morning, park on the road as access is by the road entrance only (no access from the car park side).

This is a great opportunity for those swimmers wanting an extra coached session that, at present, we cannot offer at Altrincham.  If you do attend, please just let us know so we can assess how well the session is used by Altrincham swimmers.

Please note that there will be no Friday morning sessions available during August 2019 due to refurbishment works being carried out to the Leisure Centre.
