Club Swimming Returns – 21 August 2020

We are pleased to announce that the club is commencing its return to swimming!

Starting Friday 21 August, two weekly sessions will be run at the sensational new Stromlo Leisure Centre in addition to our regular sessions which will also shortly recommence at Lakeside Leisure Centre in Tuggeranong. 

Stromlo Pool Sessions

Fridays 7:30-8:30 am (initially) – Distance & Pace semi-coached session (50m LC pool).

Sundays 9:00-10:00 am – Coached training session (50m LC pool) followed by optional coffee/breakfast/chat. Normal training session fee payment applies.

Important Information

All swimmers should arrive at least 10 minutes before the session start time for the pre-session coach’s talk to maximise swimming time due to the 1-hour pool entry current session restrictions.

All swimmers MUST book their spot and pay pool entry online for these sessions. This can be done up to 3-days in advance. Book in early to ensure your spot as you are competing with all other centre users to get one of the 100 spots available (current COVID restriction). 

If you have a YMCA pool membership at Lakeside Leisure Centre (or another ACT YMCA-managed centre) your membership covers Stromlo Leisure Centre also.  However, if you have a 20-visit swim pass for Lakeside Leisure Centre it does not cover entry at Stromlo. Remember as a Masters Swimming Australia member, you are entitled to entry at the concession rate. 

The changing rooms are open, but due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the shower cubicles cannot be used at present. However, there are a couple of open access warm showers on the pool deck.

Tuggeranong Pool Sessions

Our regular club sessions will recommence on Tuesday 1 September – starting with our endurance session in the morning and then our evening training session. More details to follow once negotiations are finalised with the Lakeside Leisure Centre management.
