Training OverviewTraining Philosophy | Technique & TipsSession LibraryCoaches Profiles

We have several qualified Masters coaches who plan and coach our training sessions. The aim is to provide quality sessions catering for all levels of ability and interests – whether it is recreational, open water or competitive swimming. The current coaches are Anne Smyth (Coaching Director), Greg Gourley, Caroline Makin, Leisa Cass, Brenda Day, Tom Boyce and Katrina Burgess.

Normally training sessions are held at Lakeside Leisure Centre, 1 Anketell St, Greenway, ACT 2900 (map)

We currently have four routine training sessions each week as follows:

Tuesdays 19:15 – 20:15 @ Lakeside
Thursdays
09:30 – 10:30 @ LakesideLakeside Leisure Centre
Fridays 07:15 – 08:15 @ Lakeside (No Coach)
Sundays 16:30 – 18:00 @ Lakeside

During summer, additional Sunday morning training sessions are often held in the 50m outdoor pool at the Phillip Swimming and Ice Skating Centre, 1 Irving Street, Phillip, ACT 2606 (map). Timings will be advised to members via the club email list.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the session start time for stretching and a run down of the session from the coach.

The cost per training session is approximately $5.00 per session. We no longer take cash payments so members need to take advantage of the discounted rate offered by purchasing a 12-visit training card * for $52.00. Please sign the Attendance Book and mark off one visit on your training card.

* Swimmers are required to purchase 12 session cards at the discounted price of $4.33/session. Payment of $52 can be made by two methods: preferably by direct credit to the Tuggeranong Masters Swimming bank account (bank details are located in the front of the ‘sign-in’ folder at the pool) or, alternatively, by cash to the Treasurer (Denise Druitt) at the pool. If you’ve made payment by online banking, please contact Denise, to assist her in identifying which deposits are for what! Cards that have been purchased will be left in the training card box at the pool for swimmers to collect.
