Heads up! Dates for your diary!

Dear Swimmers

I thought I'd send you a quick note to inform you of some date changes owing primarily to carnivals being run at the pool.

Don't forget, you can always check out our public holiday shut-down schedule here (including Christmas and Easter):!public-holidays/c24hz as well as the fact that your sessions in the app or your online portal won't show for the dates when we won't have sessions - so if they're not in there, they're not on. That being said, there are very few planned public holiday shut-downs, even this Monday's (28/9) 7am and 9.30am sessions will be on during HRH's birthday - thanks Ma'am!

Carnival changes:

9.30am Squad Sessions that are affected by Carnivals are: 

  • Mon 29/2/16*
  • Wed 2/3/16
  • Fri 4/3/16
  • Wed 9/3/16
  • Wed 16/3/16
  • Fri 18/3/16
  • Mon 21/3/16*
  • Wed 23/3/16
  • Wed 30/3/16
  • Fri 1/4/16

*Monday sessions will likely start 20 minutes later at 9.50am (TBC) due to me finishing my 1-2-1 session at the pool prior at 9.25am.

…these will either be run at Cottesloe Beach, Claremont Jetty or possibly an alternate pool venue (TBC). If the thought of an open water session doesn't inspire you on these dates, please be sure to cancel out of these sessions asap to allow others to have the opportunity to swim then. Thank you!

6.15pm Squad Sessions that are affected by Carnivals are:

  • Thursday 3rd March - CANCELLED (per the auto email out last night to everyone in this group)

Push Notifications / SMS:

If you have "Push Notifications" enabled within the app, I will send out the above details as simple reminders on the day before these sessions to hopefully avoid anyone showing up at the wrong place - just another reason to download and get using the app from the home page at - a fabulous little tool!

Please note, we will no longer be sending out bulk direct SMS's to the squad. These have been replaced by the Push Notifications within the app. I have however, reset everyone's Email / SMS settings to allow both email & SMS to be sent in the event that you have registered for a wait list and get offered a spot. Some people last week had their SMS notifications turned off and thus missed out on a wait list they were waiting for.

Of course, if you never plan to wait list for a session, you can always change your settings back in your profile! Too easy.

Have a great day!
