Land Training

Just a quick reminder that land training sessions have re-started on Friday nights 7-8pm at Rutland Sports Park in the tennis centre. ( no session on 28.09.18 )

These sessions build overall fitness, improve core strength and stamina and are open to all swimmers age 10yrs and over.

Parents are welcome to join in too, or stay and watch.  However if dropping swimmers off for the session, please pop in and ensure I have a contact number for you before you leave.

The initial price is £2 per class per person to be handed to myself each week.

Please wear suitable clothing – you will get hot, and bring plenty of water!

See you there
