The club is pleased to announce the launch of two new sessions – a junior masters session (aged 12+), and an adult masters group (18+).
The sessions will be held between 3.30 – 5.00 pm, starting from next Saturday February 27th at Stretford Sports Village.
Both sessions will give teenagers and adults the chance to enjoy coached sessions that aim to be social and fun as well as focusing on personal fitness goals or stroke development. Please note that we split the pool so that the juniors and adult masters will swim separately.
For the junior masters sessions anyone aged 12 and over is welcome including people new to the club. The session will cater for our existing older swimmers when they still want to swim for fitness or fun, but no longer want to train to compete. We are also hoping to atttract back some swimmers who may have left for the above reasons. We are also keen to recruit new swimmers – these may be older and have been put off from joining the club because they are not strong enough swimmers to join our current main group. Please spread the word around friends and encourage them to come down and give it a try.
The adult masters will have the lanes tailored so that everyone can be grouped by experience or ability. Please talk to the coaches about what you are looking to achieve, so that they can help.
The cost of the session is either our normal membership fee and the ASA Membership plus £5 a session (either poolside or standing order). Alternatively, we are also offering a new Pay As You Go scheme where new or returning members can pay only the ASA fee plus £6,50 a session.
Finally, we will soon be offering new Aqua sports activities for anyone aged 12 and over and will keep you posted. These activities could include things such as open water swimming, wake boarding, canoeing. The group will be asked to input into the decision making process on what activities are chosen. We are hoping to subsidise these activities to help keep costs down.
