Swim training is at Lord Butler Leisure Centre from 1-3pm, these sessions are run as an addition to our usual Saturday training at Carver Barracks and hence children are able to run, bike and swim every week as follows:
Groups S & 1: 1.00pm - 2.00pm
Groups 2, F and C: 2.00pm - 3.00pm
Capacity in the 2-hour slot will be limited and we will give priority to those children who have shown good attendance in previous year’s Carver sessions and who have taken up previous swim opportunities. It is also crucial that the children are reasonably competent swimmers because we do not have the time/pool space to teach children to swim. Depending on the numbers signing up we may also need to hold swim trials to help us select the children. You must be prepared to commit to the whole term. We cannot take children on an ad hoc basis.
We will be running these Sunday swim sessions all the way through until just before Christmas, which equates to 13 session in total. The dates are as follows:
19th, 26th September
3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st October
7th, 14th, 21st, 28th November
5th, 12th December
We will need to levy an additional charge for the swimming session as we must cover the hire of the pool and lifeguard fees. The charge for the forthcoming term (13 weeks) will be £52 paid in advance. This equates to £4 per session and is in addition to the termly fee for the Saturday run/bike sessions at Carver Barracks. Invoicing will be made in the same way as Saturday session fees, by PayPal.
We send out a booking form at the beginning of each term to find out who is interested in this opportunity. Outside of this time, if you would like your child to be added to the waiting list for the swim sessions, please email our Membership Secretary Erica Redfern.
