Phones At Training Please refer to the email sent out by our Club Welfare Officer on Thursday - copy here.  Please can you ensure this message is passed onto your swimmer.
Friday Morning Training For those swimmers in squads Development 3 and above, there is an additional, optional, training session available at Urmston Leisure Centre every Friday morning, 6:00am-7:00am, Coached by Flixton Swimming Club's Head Coach, Phil Ramsbottom.
There are two payment options for the session:-
  • £2.50 per swimmer per session on a pay-as-you-go basis (cash on the day); or
  • £8.00 per swimmer per month for all Friday am sessions (by standing order to Flixton Swim Club).
If your swimmer would like to attend, simply turn up any Friday morning and meet Phil on the poolside.  The Leisure Centre itself will be closed so, to enter the building during the morning, park on the road as access is by the road entrance only (no access from the car park side).
This is a great opportunity for those swimmers wanting an extra coached session that, at present, we cannot offer at Altrincham.  If you do attend, please just let us know so we can assess how well the session is used by Altrincham swimmers.
