WHAT A FANTASTIC YEAR:
BEST NATIONAL ARENA SWIMMING LEAGUE EVER,
BEST COUNTIES EVER, BEST REGIONALS EVER,
MOST NATIONAL QUALIFYING TIMES EVER,
BEST MASTERS EVER,
BEST OPEN WATER EVER
This year we have had the most successful year in the clubs history and things are looking good for next year as we head into our summer break.
Our last session will be Sunday 20th July and we will return on Monday 1st of September. During the break all swimmers MUST take at least 2 weeks off from training to allow the body and brain to relax recuperate and revive itself. This will put you in a great place to restart in September with renewed drive and vigour. Make sure you have all set yourselves Goals and Targets for the new swimming year. Training without goals and targets is like running around in circles you have no direction or end destination. After 2 weeks off training do some aerobic training 3 times per week e.g. skipping, running or cycling.
There will be slight changes to our training programme out lined below, and as shown under each squad information page:
Mondays: Joint session Development & Potential Goldenstones 7-8.15pm. Performance Squad 6-8pm at Oxley 6-7pm land training, 7-8pm swimming. No morning training
Tues and Thurs Morning Training 5.20-6.50 at Oxley for Potential & Performance
Mon, Wed & Fri joint sessions for Development and Potential.
Weds 7.30-8pm land training at Goldenstones for Development & Potential; swimmers will need to bring their own exercise mat. I recommend Fitness-Mad Deluxe Aerobic Exercise Mat 10mm - web link www.powerhouse-fitness.co.uk is cheapest place I’ve found but you may be able to source cheaper.
The first Important Target swim meet of the year will be the County Development Meet 4th & 5th Oct and it is expected that every swimmer in Skills, Development and Potential enter this meet.
Performance Squad first Target Meet will be the Heads of the Valleys Greater Gwent - Level 2 18th & 19th OCTOBER 2014.
I would like to thank all our volunteers for all the work they do, without them we would not be able to run at all let alone be successful.
We offer fantastic opportunities to the young people of the Yeovil area and we would like to continue to offer this and more. We need you to help so why leave it to someone else? why not help out yourself? there are always little jobs that need to be done and you have the skills to do it. Please come forward and offer a little time to help all our swimmers. We want to get better still and to do that we need your help but we need you to come forward and offer to help out. All our volunteers have jobs, families and commitments just like you; if they can do it, so can you…
Have a good summer break.
