DSC – Important Friday night training changes.
As promised we have been monitoring the usage during our Friday sessions at both Flitwick and Lealands pools. As we are still encountering issues with our Lealands pool, we have made the decision to move all training on a Friday to Flitwick. The pool times are shown at the link. The key changes are as follows:
Development Squads: Friday Flitwick 7pm to 8pm
Transition Squads: Friday Flitwick 8pm to 9.15pm
The change will take effect from Friday 19th October 2018. We hope that this will be a beneficial change for our swimmers. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Tim Hutton or Paula Ellison directly.
