General

What should I do if I feel unwell in training or when I’m competing?
You must let one of the coaches know as soon as possible.

 

 Training

I am new to the club, how many sessions should I attend?
The attendance target for performance squads is 60% of the available sessions and for the other squads is 50%. However, to help with their development a swimmer should attend as many sessions as possible.

I am about to join Reception squad, what equipment will I need?
You will need goggles, a large drinks bottle, trunks/costume, towel, a pull buoy, a kickboard, a bag to hold them all in. Most items can be ordered online from the club shop.

How old do you need to be to go morning training?
There isn’t an age restriction to attend morning training. Reception squad members can only attend the Saturday morning session whilst all other squads can attend both Wednesday and Saturday sessions.

Galas

How do I know if I have been selected for a team gala?
A new news article will appear on the home page of the website and a team sheet will be posted on the website under the Squad section. You can now confirm whether you are available online.  It will provide details of the gala: Date, Venue and Time of the Warm Up and Start Time of the Gala. Most team galas are held on a Saturday evening.

How do I get selected for a team gala?
Swimmers are selected using the ranking list for individual events by the coaches, all relay selections are at coaches discretion.

How do I let the coach know that I can or cannot swim?
All swimmers selected should tick or cross their name as soon as possible after the team sheet is posted on the website.

I ticked my name showing I was available to swim but now I can’t, what should I do?
You must let Graham Nash know as soon as possible if you are unable to swim. Once a swimmer has confirmed they will swim for the club they should do so. By withdrawing from a gala you are potential letting your team members down and may prevent others from swimming. However, an obvious exception to this is if the swimmer is ill.

What event will I swim in at the gala?
Swimmers are normally told which event they are swimming at the gala. Swimmers must be expected to swim any stroke and any distance. Some swimmers may only swim 1 or 2 events whilst others swim more.

How do I know when the galas are being held?
All the galas are detailed on the competition planner on the website. This can be found under the Squad section. You should check this regularly.

I am competing in a gala or open meet should I miss training?
No training is important and missing training could affect your results. Swimmers should only miss training due to illness or injury. If in any doubt ask your coach.

It’s the first time I have entered a gala, what events should I enter?
Entering galas for the first time can seem quite daunting. LSASC has an information officer, Shaun O’Brien who can help you decide. Shaun has children in many sessions so he is usually at one of the pools to offer help or email him shaun@swimleamington.org.
