Morning sessions

January 14th, 2019

Please note that the Monday morning session will be starting again this coming Monday, January 21st, 0530 till 0700 hrs. As per the Tuesday morning session, this is open to all Performance squad members.

This extra session will be running up until the Scottish National Age Group Championships and is intended to help prepare swimmers who have already qualified or are looking to qualify for this competition.

Training volumes, hours and number of sessions a week, have to be appropriate to a swimmers age and stage of development. They also have to be progressive and there is no intention for our Club to give very young swimmers 9 and under any more training no matter how good they are. We do care for the long-term future of our athletes not for short-term instant success.

Two squads (Junior Performance and Senior Performance) are invited to attend. Our results with those who attend regularly have been very good and they and the Club have moved on to a new Level. Although initially we had 20 attending, this has now settled at about 12 from a group of 15/16.

For those attending the Coaches will be looking for: –
Mindset – believe Talent is developed from your natural toolbox, not what you are born with.
Learning – always wanting to learn more, no matter what you already think you know.
Skill/Mastery – develop great basic skills above everything else.
Work ethic – ability to work hard unsupervised.
Teamwork – ability to work with others to drive the training group on.
Ownership – in control of your swimming. It is your swimming not your parents or the coaches.
Are you competing regularly? – The right events, all events, your worst events?
Age/experience/ability – developing your own talent from wherever you are currently.
Organisation – have all the personal equipment necessary including hydration without borrowing.
