Training Cancelled

Swimming Training for all squads at Guildford Swimming Centre has been cancelled for Wednesday, 18th May as the water temperature is too low.

Training should be on as usual tomorrow, Thursday, 19th May.

Winter Training Times

Training times for the club's training squads at Guildford Swimming Centre are now available.

Training moves to Guildford from Monday, 28th March while Merrylands Swimming Centre is closed during the Winter Season.

Due to limited lane space available at Guildford Pool, swimmers whi have not completed the Winter Training form will not be permitted to commence training without contacting the club's coach, Peter Johnston, first. This is so he can determine if there is space available in the swimmer's group.

The training times for each group are available on the Training Schedule page.

    With the closure of both Merrylands and Wentworthville Swimming Centres during the Winter Season, the club has managed to secure lane space for training at Guildford Swimming Centre.

    Due to limited lane space available at Guildford Pool, it is likely that there will have to be changes made to some of the training session times. There may also be a need to make further changes to training times and days as the season progresses.

    Swimmers who intend on training during winter must complete the Winter Training Form before Friday, 25th March so that we can determine what time sessions will be held. Swimmers who do not complete this form will not be permitted to commence training without contacting the club's coach, Peter Johnston, first. This is so he can determine if there is space available in the swimmer's group.

    The training times for each group will be published on the Training Schedule page on Sunday, 27th March.

    If you will not be training at Guildford, please let us know. Training will move to Guildford on Monday, 28th March.

  • Training Returns to Merrylands

    Merrylands Swimming Centre will re-open 2½ months early this winter due to the closure of Wentworthville and Guildford Swimming Centres for maintenance.

    Swimming Training will therefore return to Merrylands when it re-opens on Monday, 30th June. The 30th June opening date is a one off for this year only, due mainly to the extended 5 week closure of Guildford pool for maintenance. (It is planned that next year Merrylands will be closed for 4 months as usual from mid-May to mid-September.)

    During July, August & the first half of September, the centre will be closing at the earlier time of 6pm on weekdays. This will require a change to the training times for the Junior Squad. All of their sessions will need to begin at 4:15pm, finishing at 6pm. We realise these these times are not convenient for some swimmers however please do your best to arrive on time.

    With Guildford Pool closed, the squad from Guildford are also expected to be training at Merrylands during July and the first week of August.


    July School Holidays
    There will be no training sessions held during the July School Holidays from July 7-18. Training will finish on Thursday 3rd July and resume on Monday, 21st July.
    Training fees will be reduced accordingly.

    If you decide not to train at all in July please let us know.
