Summer training schedule starts on Monday

Just a reminder that our summer pool and dryside training schedule starts on Monday, with the last normal sessions on Sunday at Impington. The schedule is here. It runs from 24 July to 24 August, when we return to normal.

We understand that swimmers and parents are starting now to make decisions about the next school year. Please do discuss with Karl if there are any changes to your own schedules that will make it difficult to train or compete in accordance with the criteria laid down for your squad, which you can find here.  If you are planning to leave the club in September, please let us know as soon as possible by email to membership@bottishamswimclub.org.uk – thank you.

Summer Training Schedule: 24 July to 24 August

This year, we are rearranging summer training to reflect the reduced number of swimmers we tend to have in the pool.  Here is the new schedule, which will run from 24 July to 24 August 2017:

Monday sessions at Impington will remain the same;
Tuesday open water training at Milton Country Park runs all summer;
Wednesday sessions at Bottisham: C squad and lanes 3 and 4 of B squad will swim 6-7pm; A squad and lanes 1-2 of B squad will swim 7-8pm;
Thursday sessions at Bottisham: will be 6-7pm land training for A and B squads together, then 7-9pm swim for both squads together (for as long as you want to swim!); and
Sunday sessions at Impington: C squad and lanes 3 and 4 of B squad will swim 5-6pm; A squad and lanes 1-2 of B squad will swim 6-7pm.

The full training schedule will kick back in on Sunday 27 August for the last week or two before term resumes.  Any queries or issues, please let me know.

Open Water Tuesdays are Back!

BSC swimmers are again welcome at Cambridge Triathlon Club’s junior Open Water sessions at Milton Country Park on a Tuesday evening throughout the summer.  This is available to A and B squad swimmers only.  Sophie Morris will kindly be attending most sessions as BSC’s coach.

Those interested in joining in, please meet at the Milton Country Park Visitor Centre at 5.45pm for a safety briefing and registration, get in the water at 6pm and you will be out of the Park by 7pm.

Please pay for your parking at the machine. The swim cost is £2.50 per session payable by cash on the evening.

Wetsuits are compulsory for buoyancy/safety reasons. If you haven’t got one, Tri Club have a few for hire at £2.50 per session. Please bring your BSC swim cap for visibility/safety. There will be canoe safety cover.

Parents must stay throughout the session at the lakeside viewing area. Your child may get cold and wish to get out of the water early. You must be there for them with a big towel and warm clothes.

Tri Club’s Risk Assessment, Emergency Action Plan and Consent Form are all found below. Please will all interested in attending read these and print off a copy of the consent form to sign and bring along. If you fill in this form in advance it will save a little time on the day.
