    Hi all,

    We are that time of the year where lanes are starting to get very busy with race season looming. Just so we can all enjoy our swim sessions, please ensure to read the below:

    1. Members can access Piranha swim sessions 3 times per week.
    2. Members from each level should attend the swim session/swim lane for that level only – this is to keep control of the numbers in each lane. See below which should be useful.
    3. Punctuality must improve. Members must be on deck 5 minutes before the start of the session

    IMPROVERS: Swimmers able to swim 50m front crawl in 75 seconds and 300m front crawl in 9 minutes

    THE ABOVE SCHEDULE AND THE LANE CAPACITY WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED OVER THE COMING WEEKS AND, AS SUCH, THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGES.

    HOUSE-KEEPING

    Aside from the above, a few points to keep in the back of your mind that will continue to improve the quality of the sessions:

    1. Punctuality: Warm-up on time or miss out. Please aim to be in the water 5 mins before each swim session to warm up.

    2. Be courteous: Let each person finish their length by moving to one side of the lane (we appreciate this isn’t always possible when lanes are full).

    3. Count to 5: Leave 5 seconds between each swimmer when pushing off the wall into a swim round.

    4. Listen to the instructions given out by the coach or assistant coach on deck. If you can’t hear, move closer to the wall instead of asking people around you straight away, that way no one hears anything.

    5. Take the prescribed recovery. Sets are designed by our coaches to achieve a specific aim for that session. If swimmers at the front of the lane start taking less recovery it puts 90% of that lane under pressure.

    6. Personal Hygiene – make sure to have a SHOWER before you enter the pool.

    7. Please use the lockers provided.

    8. Swim equipment: Some swim sessions will use the below, you can purchase these at swimkit.ie : Fins & Pull Buoy.

    If you don’t have any of the above and not sure of what to buy just have a chat with the swim coaches and they will advise what is best. Buying equipment can be expensive so don’t feel obliged to buy everything straight away. This is just a gentle reminder that we will be increasingly using these pieces of equipment in the coming weeks and months. Improvers in particular should have a pull buoy and fins in their swim bag.

    Many thanks
