2020 Rotto Squad - Training
The eSWIM Rotto Training Squad swimmers will have access to 3 interesting and varied training sessions per week over 16 weeks.
Monday 5.30am - 7.00am
Thursday 7.00pm- 8.30pm
Saturday 6.00am - 8.00am
In addition, once a month there will be Sunday Workshop sessions for stroke correction. Dates advertised to squad at the start of the season.
The program commences Monday 14 October 2019 and runs through to Monday 17 February 2020, with a Christmas break from Tuesday 24 December – Wednesday 1 January inclusive. Please refer to the Training Calendar for a comprehensive training session listing. Those swimmers planning on competing in the 2020 Port to Pub will have the option to extend their training sessions for an additional 2 week period.
All sessions will be held at Perth's leading aquatic facility, HBF Stadium, Stephenson Ave, Mt Claremont. Sessions are scheduled to be held in the outdoor 10 lane pool but are subject to change.
The training program will be divided into 4 x 4 week phases with each phase building towards race preparedness on Saturday 22 February. The coaches will be tailoring each session to accommodate all standards and whilst swimmers will feel that they are pushing themselves to improve they will not be pushed beyond their physical and mental capabilities. We care about the health of our swimmers!!
Key events such as the 10km trial events for solos will be factored into the training program and advice given on which open water events to include in your schedule for maximum benefit. It is expected that ALL members of the squad participate in the Christmas 10K event on Saturday 21st December as there will be no squad training this day. More details will be provided closer to the time.
Lockey will also be taking weekly ocean swim sessions throughout January to help swimmers acclimatise to the colder water and get them used to a variety of ocean conditions. Details to follow closer to the time. All swimmers are encouraged to have at least one ocean or river swim per week for at least 6-8 weeks prior to the event.
Places are strictly limited so get your enrolment in NOW to avoid disappointment.
