5 Frogs secure Oli to head up Swim sessions in 2014

January 1, 2014

5 Frogs Triathlon club will start 2014 with a new coached swim session format.  From Monday 6th January,  Oliver will be poolside, putting the Frogs through their paces.  Wednesday session will not be coached but structured swim sets, again, designed by Oliver.

Oliver Simon, one of the Worlds finest IM Swimmers, will head up the structured sessions starting Monday 6th January at 6.30 am.  Oliver says “I am delighted to be part of the Swim set up with the Frogs.  The sessions will have a Triathlon focus, but open to beginners through to the more experienced.”

Due to space the pool will be restricted to 16 swimmers initially.  The sessions will be 55 mins in length but understand if people have to leave early for work.  All swimmers in the pool must take part in the coached session; it is no longer an open swim session to do what you like.

The cost is £10 per month, which equates to £1.25 per swim.  All swimmers must be members of 5 Frogs Triathlon club and have a valid 2014 membership card.  The cards have kindly been sponsored by Dirty Green Trainers again this year.  The cards are used to identify current members and therefore there is a strict – No card, no swim policy.

In January, Oli is away for 2 weeks, so the cost will only be £5 for the first month, although Oli will leave swim sessions for the 2 weeks he is away with the swimmers. It has been proposed that swimmers sign up 2 months at a time, making the first payment £15 for January and February. These costs are a trial and may change due to numbers for March onwards.

This is a must do session for those training for races this season.

All swimmers interested please email ribbit@fivefrogstriathlon.com to confirm your intent.  Your place will be confirmed back to you by Friday 3rd January.

A big thank you to Stephen Rogers at AB Rogers and Son Ltd whom have sponsored the pool times for January.

Session times: Mondays 6.30am / Wednesdays 6.30am
