Timetable changes

We are excited to announce that we will be continuing the two swim squad sessions that were added in May 2017 on a trial basis.

There have been slight changes to the session times/descriptions as a result of feedback and surveying of members and participants to the two sessions below.

Tuesday 6:10am to 7:10am – Inter Swim session at Fitzroy Swimming Pool

We are starting this session earlier than the previous 6:30am start; this is due to increasing feedback around the centre open time and session start time of 6:00am means that often swimmers are not able to start at the time advertised. We will monitor how this start time works with coaches and participants.

This session will remain an Inter Swim session. Inter Swim only differs from Swim Squad sessions in that Inter Swim provides a smaller class training environment with a maximum of 30 participants. This enables those from a beginner swim ability to transition into the squad training environment with more opportunities for feedback. The focus is to develop technique, endurance, speed and strength.

The session is still appropriate for all levels from beginner to advanced.

Thursday 9:30am to 11:00am – Swim Squad session at Fitzroy Swimming Pool

This session will revert back to 1.5 hours as it was in the trial period. We recognise that as the only mid-morning squad offering and a full length squad at this time is important to our members and participants.

The Tuesday 6am Ergo session at Richmond Recreation Centre has been removed after consultation with the coaches and an overall assessment of the timetable and attendance.

There are also the usual session changes as we approach the warmer weather with:

  • The 6pm Ergo session on Tuesday has changed to a Road Cycle session at Yarra Boulevard, Kew.
  • The 6am Long Run session on Friday has changed to an Open Water session at Elwood.

If you are intending to participate in either of the above sessions, we require you to provide us with emergency contact information. Please complete this information online. The participant information provided via the online form will be used to provide you with safety and session information as well as providing Yarra Leisure with emergency contact details and any other relevant medical information

We will continue to review the Yarra Triathlon program, attendance and viability of each of the sessions.
