Swimming

 

Swim training is held every Monday and Wednesday night at Kilgraston School, Bridge of Earn (follow the drive round to the large car park, the swimming pool is next to the sports hall). 
 

These sessions are coached and you must be able to swim 50m with your head in the water, breathing to the side to attend.  If you’re coming along for the first time, please speak to the coaches before getting changed.

 

Mondays:  Session 1 (Group B swimmers) - 8pm to 8.45pm coached session / Session 2 (Group A swimmers) -  8.45pm to 9.30pm uncoached.

Wednesdays: Session 2 (Group A swimmers) - 7.30pm to 8.30pm coached session /  Session 1 (Group B swimmers) - 8.30pm to 9.30pm uncoached.

 

* Please note that during the months May to September when open water swimming is available at Lochore Meadows, the above Wednesday swim sessions change slightly and allow swimmers from either group to turn up for whatever session they wish as 2 lanes are allocated to the training set and 2 lanes are allocated for endurance swimming 'just keep swimming'.  Once open water season ends, these sessions will resort back to standard coached session for Group A at 7.30pm and uncoached session for Group B at 8.30pm.

 

Session 1 (Group B swimmers) - Critical Swim Speed of 2:00mins/100m and above

Session 2 (Group A swimmers) - Critical Swim Speed of 1:59mins/100m and below (more experienced swimmers)

Open Water Season

Open Water swim sessions are run at Lochore Meadows Country Park during May to September every Wednesday from 6.30pm - 7.30pm for open water swim practice (with safety boat cover) - cost £4 per session payable to Lochore on arrival (ensure you have the correct change with you).  These sessions are not run by the club and it is up to the individual to organise, however, there are often club members attending, as well as people from other clubs and people who just enjoy open water swimming.  No need to be part of a club to attend these sessions.  A wetsuit is advisable - check with Lochore Meadows Reception for any further information.  Please note, you need to arrive around 6pm at Lochore if you have never been before in order to register for open water (or even if you have been before, arrive early to give yourself time to get changed and ready to start your swim at 6.30pm).
