*Important* from Chris Weller regarding changes to Swimming times
Notice to all Parents / swimmers
Please be aware of the following information regarding changes to the training sessions affecting some swimmers in the development and competitive groups:
As from, and including Wednesday 30th May 2018, training will commence for an allocated group of swimmers, 6:30pm – 8:00pm at the Glynneath Leisure Centre.
Selection is based on competitive requirements in addition to attendance criteria, and current 200m times. These swimmers will no longer train on Thursday evenings. The introduction of this session will give us the capacity to ensure vital, quality sessions are undertaken with a suitable number of swimmers in each lane.
The changes above also allow for an increase in capacity and development for those who will remain swimming on Thursdays. The sessions will still be overseen by the head coach with some swimmers being elevated to the 8:00pm – 9:00pm slot from 31st May 2018, again allowing greater focus on quality sessions with a suitable number of swimmers in each lane.
These changes will allow for more progression between lanes due to the creation of more capacity (lane space), so the improvements and movements will be more efficient.
All swimmers affected will be contacted during this week’s sessions to confirm changes and availability.
Whilst it is appreciated that there may be some instances of unavailability or logistical issues, these changes are vitally important to ensure the club structure remains healthy and able to deliver the optimum level of development, and are as a result of the rapid growth the club has undergone in a short space of time. There will be criteria to be met for each lane to ensure there is a smooth flowing pathway at all times, but the Head Coach will discuss any issues or concerns with parents if and when they arise.
