Dear Academy Swimmers
We wanted to let you know now about some exciting developments to the Academy that will take effect from September 2016.
We have been working hard to try to find a way to offer more training opportunities to all of our Academy swimmers.
From September training will mirror that of the main AVSC club and so will continue year round, apart from a break in the summer, and for any Bank Holidays or pool closures. The programme will no longer be "term time" only.
We are also pleased to offer swimmers in Sydney a longer session on Saturday morning with the additional time being mainly used to focus on key aquatic skills.
Athens who already have an hour long session on Saturday morning will also benefit from an additional session of 45 minutes on Thursday evenings at Abingdon School pool from 7.00-7.45 pm.
Beijing swimmers have their Monday session confirmed (7.00-7.45 at Radley School pool) as well as the Thursday session at Abingdon School pool. This will now be slightly later to accommodate Athens and so will be from 7.45-8.30 pm
Rio swimmers will have their additional Monday night session at Radley School pool confirmed, 7.45-8.30, as well as the Tuesday session at Abingdon School from 6.00-7.00.
We want to offer the Academy swimmers more opportunities to gain confidence in competing and so are looking at adding a competition calendar based on level 4 meets and internal competitions.
The Academy Coaching team are enthused about these increased opportunities to develop your swimmer skills and hope that you will be too.
We would all like to wish you, and your families, an enjoyable summer.
