Training

We train at a number of pools in the Lincoln area, including City School, North Kesteven School, Yarborough School, and RAF Cranwell. Sessions usually range from 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours in length and older swimmers will be encouraged to involve gym sessions and land work in their strength building and fitness programme. As swimmers progress through the squad system they will be introduced to early morning training (always a favourite with parents!).
