Hi all, 

The Lido is going to be completely shut from 12pm on Monday 11th June through to 5pm on Wednesday 13th June 2018 whilst they put in a larger capacity water tank to prevent the current issues of low water pressure during peak times.

One place remaining on run course and S&C

Hi all

This week is the final week of strength and conditioning at the Castle, but that’s because it’s moving to its summer home of Brockwell Park from next Wednesday. Over the summer it’s body weight based so that it won’t get in the way of any races you have coming up (and so coaches don’t have to lug weights up to the top of the hill!) and is a perfect way to keep your body balanced and stable and hopefully prevent injury.

Sessions will be 7am on Wednesdays…

Welcome to our new assistant head coach, thanks Emily!

I just wanted to formally welcome and thank our new assistant head  coach, Emily Robinson, who many of you already know as one of our amazing swim coaches, and soon to be fully qualified level 2 Tri coach. 

Emily stepped in to offer her help when I was on the brink of stepping down because there was too much to do, so you can either thank her or curse her for convincing me to stay on! Either way I am immensely grateful so if you see her around, please do thank her (or buy her a…

Summer training timetable

Hi all, 

Please find below the new summer training timetable. Anticipating some of the likely feedback: 

- sorry that velo is only fortnightly, this is the only booking we are able to get over the summer.

- sorry that there are multiple sessions on some days, there's not enough days of the week to get all the sessions we would like! Plus it's dependent on venue and coach availability.

- Please note that spin will cost 7 tokens from May in recognition that it is a…

Vote now for Summer S&C sessions

From June S&C sessions will be moving outdoors, yey!

They will be mostly body weight and mobility  based exercises which will be great for keeping you injury free but not heavy enough to get in the way of your summer training. 

If you’re interested in taking part please fill in the attached vote so we can choose which session goes ahead. The options are based on coaches availability. Brockwell sessions will be in the park, most likely up in the middle and should give you…

Membership cards

Firstly if you have a membership card, please make sure that you show it to get entry to training (incl Saturday swim) at venues such as the Lido which ask to see it. 

If you have joined but dont yet have a membership card please try and come along to one of the following sessions to pick one up (just let Lido staff know you're there to pick up your card and they should be fine to let you through):

- Saturday swim - swim captain Simon Markall should be there with cards

If you're looking to book a training session and can't see it online yet it's probably because it's a session that is still booked via the forum.
