Weekly Lane Swimming in the Willow Pool
‘Lane Swimming’ was introduced to provide a facility for pupils who just enjoy the exercise – or who want or incrementally improve their fitness and skills.
Some ‘Lane Swimmers’ graduate to competitive swimming with the Willow Sharks; however, the purpose of the sessions is the joy of being in ‘one’s element’!
Every Tuesday morning @ 7am, lane Swimming is provided in the Willow pool for 3rd Formers to 6th Formers. Numbers vary throughout the season but such is the tradition of swimming in Willow - a cohort of boys are always keen and present.
Coached by Max Gueret, the boys really improve over the season. We ask Parents of Lane Swimmers to join our ‘Parental Rota’ so that there is always a second adult in attendance on those dark and cold winter mornings.
Those interested in attending should contact Timi in Reception in the first instance.
Minimum standards to join:
- An ability to swim at least one full length of the pool with relative ease.
- A genuine interest in swimming
- Being punctual and responsible.
Pupils should have an ‘extra’ breakfast box for sustenance after the session - which can be enjoyed at the ‘Swimming Corner’ near the 5th Form Corridor!
