Training Changes (For those swimmers competing this weekend)

Friday 18th May Pm = 19:00 - 20:00 (Just 1 hour)

Saturday 19th May Am = No Training

Monday 21st May Am = Off (Only if you have competed over the weekend)

Training Changes for Regional Performance (Swimmers who are not competing)

Saturday 19th May = No Training

Regional Development training will be as normal on Friday, Saturday am and Monday am.

Please make sure you all prepare well and stay hydrated over the weekend, it will be very hot on poolside.  Remember your snacks for poolside off the nutrition list.  

"Before the (Olympic) trials I was doing a lot of relaxing exercises and visualisation.  And I think that that helped me to get a feel of what It was gonna be like when I got there.  I knew that I had done everything that I could to get ready for that meet, both physically and mentally".  (Michael phelps, 6 Gold Medals, 2004 Olympic Games)

Like Michael Phelps, you should plan in your head what you are going to do in your race.  Visualise your streamlining, kicks off the wall, not breathing last 5m etc and it will happen.  Thinking about it after the race is too late.

Training will be as normal for anyone not competing.

Best of luck to you all Winking smile

Upcoming Competition Entries

Hi All,

Below are some upcoming competition dates and advise on what the coaching team would like you to enter.  Meets close to the end of the season are becoming increasingly over subscribed and it is important we get our entries in as quickly as possible to secure our swimmers races.  Remember the target it to achieve as many Yorkshire and NER qualifying times as possible before the end of the season.

Entry Date - Monday 14th May
Harrogate Summer A Graded Meet (Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th June 2018)

Regional Development are advised to enter their best events as this meet is not first come first serve.  Swimmers are likely to be rejected from their slower events should the meet become over subscribed.

Regional Performance are advised not to enter any events you have raced at the Age Group NER's.

Entry Date - Monday 14th May
City of Leeds Summer Meet 2018 (Saturday 30th June & Sunday 1st July)

Regional Development & Performance - Swimmers are advised to update events they have not raced for a while or enter events they have not yet tried.  This is a good chance to try 400m FS or 400m IM if you have not already done so.

City of Sheffield Snow Frills Meet 2018 (Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December 2018)
