We organise a number of training sessions for junior members.
Sundays 5:30pm – 6.30pm at Ongar Leisure Centre
This is a mixed session with adult and junior members. Generally, there are two coaches supporting six lanes of the 25 metre pool. This session is aimed at all levels of ability, from people who can only swim two lengths, to those swimmers who can complete the full training session, to strong club swimmers.
The main focus for the Juniors is to develop a good front crawl technique to allow them to complete the swim section of a race efficiently and improve their overall technique.
Cost is £2.50 per session for standard club members (free for premium members).
The dates will be published in 2017.
Time 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Children must have road-worthy bikes, so parents should check bikes including tyres, brakes and gears. Seat height should be so that child can touch floor on tiptoe. They also must wear a helmet. They don’t need a racing bike, a mountain or hybrid bike is good, but not suitable for bmx.
