After the initial chilly shock, it seems you guys really enjoyed the open water swimming session at Pinkston, so we have booked another session for SUNDAY 19th May, 1pm~2pm. The session will be run slightly differently this time:
The cost for the session is £2 per person. This fee should be be paid to Gary the treasurer afterwards. So if you have your own SWIMMING wetsuit you can turn up about 12.50pm and get changed immediately. If you have your own appropriate wetsuit we are not applying an age limit to this activity (although we would suggest 11 years in line with Scottish Swimming competitions), however please talk to Jan or Will McMurtrie if you have any questions.
If you need to hire a wet-suit at Pinkston it will be and additional £3 which is payable ON THE DAY, by debit or credit card only directly with centre. Please arrive 20minutes early to get sized up. Note that due to limited availability of smaller wetsuit sizes for hire, we are not accepting anyone younger than 12 years old.
Our younger swimmers will require a parent or guardian (of the same gender) to accompany them into changing rooms, as we had to take a bit of time last session trying to get swimmers into and out of wet-suits. So please take that into consideration, whilst we don’t mind doing that, coaches need to run the session and keep swimmers already in the water under safety supervision. Thanks for your understanding!
There is no sign-up required for this session, but a list will be posted in the cafe as usual, please add your name just so we know who is planning to come along on the day.
Due to requests - THIS SESSION WILL BE OPEN TO PARENTS to come and try. Please talk to Will if you want to join us in the water.
