Swim Squad Availability and this weekend!

Dear athletes

Hope you are having a good's about to get very hot apparently!

As mentioned on Tuesday's swim session, numbers prior to the Rottnest Channel Swim seem to have really picked up. This is great and it's wonderful to see the increased interest in the program at Claremont Pool. 

IMPORTANT: Can we please request that following the Christmas holidays and with some new faces having arrived recently, that you ALL please just spend 2 minutes to drop us over a return email of which of the swim sessions (shown here) you plan to attend on a weekly basis up until the Rottnest Swim on the 21st February (we'll reassess after this point again). Equally, if you know that you have a spot "reserved" but no longer require it, please let us know so that we can offer it to someone on the waiting list. Your help is much appreciated in this respect and will ensure the continued smooth running of the program.

In order to maintain the quality of the sessions during these busy times we have obviously taken a number of steps including the addition of our 2nd coach, Adam, to facilitate the running of the program and to ensure that you each get some valuable individual attention during the session. Please help us to help you, if you have any specific questions during a session for either of us, please don't be afraid to ask. Please also remember that the very best way to fine-tune and improve your stroke and efficiency is through our tailored 121 Video Analysis and Stroke Correction sessions which can be booked at It is well worth it! We are fully booked until the 2nd week in February, but please do get your requests in immediately and we'll try our best to get you in asap.

HALF IRONMAN PROGRAM: we have had a good response to the Half Ironman 16 week program and commenced this on Monday 12th January. It is not too late to still join up however, so please submit your interest and take a look at the program (available as an interactive PDF document (8mb) for download after submitting the form) at For those who have registered for the SILVER and GOLD packages, we are just collating all your info and preparing the more detailed schedule for you. We'll also be in touch about payment if you have not yet submitted this at As usual, if anything in the Program Overview wasn't answered for you already, please just drop me an email or speak with me tonight at the running session (at LAKE MONGER remember...)

Finally, this weekend:

  • Saturday 630am - the HIM group will leave for a steady 2h30 ride from the Bell Tower. Please do your 10-15 mins easy run off the bike once you get home.
  • Saturday 745am - the Rottnest Swim Group will meet at Trigg Tower (again) for a ~8km swim. Please bring your paddler if you have one.
  • Saturday 100pm - squad swim session at Claremont Pool - heaps of fun as usual!
  • Sunday 800am - Swim Thru Perth 4km swim or the Waikiki Enduro Triathlon event in Rockingham. If you plan to do either, please let us know how you got on!
