Main Club Swim Session
Our main Club swim session is held on Monday evenings (8-9pm) at Friary Grange Leisure Centre in Lichfield. This is a coached session led by our Level 2 ASA swim coach, Jade O’Sullivan, assisted by one or more of the Club triathlon coaches. The session is open to swimmers of all abilities. The focus of the sessions varies through the year but we aim to improve your technique and have you fit for the triathlon season. One lane is reserved for those who want to work exclusively on technique.
New swimmers will be entitled to one free introductory session. Non-members can swim at 3 sessions after which they must join the Club (or the BTF) if they wish to continue. This is to comply with our Club insurance. Please complete a Non-member consent 2018 and bring it with you to your first session.
Cost: Members – Adults £5, U16 (or full time education) £2, Non-members – Adults £7, U16 (or full time education) £4
(For regular swimmers there is also the option of paying an annual fee of £180 for this session when you renew your membership (this is equivalent to 40 sessions at £4.50 per session).
Location: Friary Grange Leisure Centre, Eastern Avenue, Lichfield, WS13 7EW
