About KTC Coached SWIMMING
Session starts at 9pm sharp
Goggles are a must
Advisable to bring water for hydration throughout the session (even though some of us will swallow half the pool..!)
Each lane has a different level of ability with the fastest swimmers in lane 1 through to beginners/early intermediates in lane 4
Can you let me know what the swim Etiquette is?
Session starts at the shallow end of the pool
Lane 1 and 3 swim in a clockwise direction
Lane 2 and 4 swim in an anticlockwise direction
Swimmers go off on 5 second intervals, with the strongest swimmers going off first
If you need to overtake the person in front, please tap them on the foot towards the end of a lap and then they will move aside at the end.
At the completion of your set, finish at the wall and then move to one side to let the next swimmer finish or continue.
Please ensure you do not lean on or move the lane ropes.
What other training sessions do you do?
It's all about the Wednesday night swim. It is the founder session for the club. We are looking at developing other sessions, so keep you eye out here and on Twitter and Facebook.
What standard do I need to be?
All standards are catered for. We run 4 lanes, ranging from regular Ironman competitors through to complete tri beginners.
Who IS the SWIMMING Champion?
The Wednesday session is championed by one of our Ironman men, Andy Dines.
