Key Goals (Skill Fundamentals)

This group will be made up of 2 different swimmers. Those that are the Fundamental Skills swimmers, and those that are members of Performance and Development groups that need to upgrade broad fundamental skills in a more targeted environment.

The key goals of this group are to consolidate drills which have been learnt and develop more complex drills. This group will be made up of a variety of swimmers from a variety of groups. Coaches will recommend their attendance to cover skills that cannot be dealt with in the normal training programme. Drills may be swum over longer distances. 

Training

Tues and Thursday nights 6.00-7.30 or 7.30-8.30 at Pakuranga College

Other contact details

The Facility

Pakuranga College is an outdoor pool that is heated all year round. Swimmers need to come prepared for adverse weather conditions, we do still swim if it rains! A warm coat and woolly hat for immediately following training and having something with them to eat immediately after training will help. Another tip is to take large plastic bag to line your bag to ensure you have dry clothes.

                        

Access is on Pigeon Mountain Road. Swimmers & parents are unable to use the school car park between the hours of 7:30am-4:30pm. Between these hours parents will need to park on the roadside or drop their kids at the gate on Pigeon Mountain road. Parents are not permitted to use the driveway. Swimmers under the age of 9 yrs must be accompanied & collected from poolside.

To access the pool (red box) from the car park (yellow box), walk along the main road to the rear gate and down the driveway where you will be able to see the pool. Prior to 7:30am and after 4:30pm the school car park (yellow box) can be used
