Adult Wednesday Swim - Technique Swim Squad and Own Swim. Min age 15yrs.

To find the pool - What3words - length.harsh.congratulations will get you to a small gate on Ashton Road. Use that gate if it's open, or park by the tennis courts and walk along the path past the cricket nets to the building with the 1/2 dome roof. Parking in the School grounds is not permitted.

The Wednesday swim now includes the opportunity for swimmers to develop their technique.

A Coached swim session in Shrewsbury School, purely focused on front crawl technique.
How does it work?
Book onto the session and turn up - the technique session takes up two lanes at the moment with 4'ish in each lane.
What kind of things do we do?
The focus is very much on technique, so there are a lot of drills and practice of various aspects of the stroke.  This is combined with swimming lengths to put it into practice.  The more competent swimmers swim more lengths.
Do I need to be able to swim?
You need to be able to swim front crawl for about half a length....don't worry if you can't put your face in, we can work on that!
What if I turn up and can't quite do it all?
Have a short rest!  The Coach isn't going to force you to do anything you can't do.
I'm a good swimmer, what's in it for me?
It's always good to dedicate some time to eradicating bad habits and to focus on efficient swimming rather than thrashing out the metres.  There are other very competent swimmers in the Group so you'll find you are among others who are just refining bits of technique to get even better.
What if I just want to do my own swim?
That's fine - there are 4 other lanes available for own swims.

There is a limit on numbers - 30 at the moment. You need to book and pay for your session in advance via the club website. Bookings open at 5.00pm on the Thursday prior to the session. Bookings close at 23.55 on the day of the session.
