As of January 2017, ALL ADULTS will be required to have a minimum standard of swimming. To attend sessions, you will be expected to be able to swim 400m freestyle non-stop (not fast, just non-stop).
All of the scheduled club sessions are held either at the Plymouth Life Centre or Mount Batten Centre (Open Water) with details as follows:
Adult Session £2. These sessions will stop at the end of September. There may also be a short run around the area afterwards, so bring your run kit too. This session is led by Dave Monk (L2 Coach).
Tuesday: As some of you are aware already PTC have secured extra swim lanes on a Tuesday until 20:30 at the life centre. In order to maximise the usage of these lanes for both juniors and adults the coaches have voted to change the timings of the Tuesday swim as follows:
1900- 1945 will be the new Junior time (4 lanes)
1945 – 2030 will be the new Adult time (4 lanes)
Because of the session time you will be required to be on poolside at least 5 minutes before the start time so you can be in the water promptly and make the most of your 45 minutes.
Intermediate Swimmers Session: 19:45-20:30 – 4 Lanes
The Life Centre, Plymouth, PL2 3DG. £2 per session. Intermediate swim session coached by the PTC Team, these sessions are based on the Swim Smooth programme for technique work.
