T2 T3 Monday or Thursday One Hour

An one hour set for a mixed Training Group Session

This looks straight forward. T2 start off on 2 x 300, T3 start off on 4 x 100. This would work if the swimmers were in their groups, but a) there is a tendency for some T2 to swim with T3, and some T3 to swim with T2 and b) the groups divide four  ways by ability, age and drive: T2/T1, T2, T2/T3 and T3(T4)

We ought to seed and re-seed them as their enthusiasm waxes and wanes.

A guide for swimming teachers

The aim is to put in one place a broad choice of lesson plans, with assessments. These will cover all 10 grades (1 to Mini squad) covered by our swimming club. It will include sessions themed by  competitive strokes with progressions into dives & turns as well as some other aquatic skills such as sculling & treading water. Session plans will also be shared for our training groups.
