Our swimming sessions are based at St Albans Boys School and are held every fortnight on a Saturday afternoon from 15:00 to 16:00 in the 25m pool. Children are split into different groups depending on ability.
Although we are not a swim club, coaching concentrates on the front crawl technique which is the predominant stroke within triathlon. Therefore, for insurance purposes, children should be at least 8 years of age and be able to swim at least 50M unaided.
We also, on occasions have the use of the Endless Pool which provides video analysis, enabling the coaches to advise on improvements to the children’s swimming technique.
During the summer months Open Water swimming training is also available, children will be invited by the Head Coach to attend a session which is held at the Denham venue.
Children should ensure they have the correct equipment for swim training i.e. Goggles, Swim Cap and correct swim costume etc, for Open Water dependent on the water temperature a wet suit will be required.
