Garrison pool closed for repairs

06 December 2017

To all members and parents

Further to my email to you all on 17th November advising you that the Garrison Pool will be closed for repairs from this Friday 8th December to Sunday 7th January inclusive, Katie and the coaching team have reviewed the Squad Training Timetable and created a temporary timetable which comes into effect this Friday 8th December. The Garrison pool will be closed on Friday 8th December and for the following 5 weeks. I met with the coaches last night and we have signed off the plan to work around the closure. I have also been working closely with Leisureworld and they have been very helpful and have agreed today to provide some temporary pool time where available, including 2 Sunday morning slots of 9-11am on 17th December and 7th January.

We have also finalised the dates for our Xmas Break and the last session will be at Leisureworld on Friday 22nd December. Training will recommence in the New Year on Tuesday 2nd January 2018 at Leisureworld at 5.30am!! Enjoy your break!

This Friday 8th December only the Garrison will be closed so there will be a Captains’ Fun Night at Leisureworld from 6-7.30pm for ALL SQUADS.

We have tried to minimise the impact on all squads as we approach the county championships and I would like to thank Katie, Jeff, Donna and Steph for all their hard work in coming up with the plan and temporary squad timetable. The timetable will go up on the Leisureworld noticeboard and on the website asap. Please make sure you turn up at the right time, as you will not be able to train if your squad has not been allocated that session due to the numbers involved.

Weather and Cancelled Training Sessions

06 December 2017

To all members and parents

If snow is forecast or has fallen can you please make sure that training sessions are definitely on before leaving your swimmer at Leisureworld especially in the mornings.

This should be something you do anyway but more so if we have bad weather.

We cannot be held responsible for anyone left at the centre on their own when a session is not taking place.

We will do everything possible to advise through email or social media of any cancellations but please still check before leaving.

Thanking you for your cooperation.
