Southwater Lake Training
We are due to start swimming at Southwater Lake on Tuesday 20th July!
We will be meeting on the benches outside the main building from 6:15pm and we will head down to the lake at 6.30pm (so be ready and changed by that point). If you are late arriving, please head down to the 'muddy bank' area.

The lake swimming will replace the pool sessions. At this time, the pool is hired and is only available for the squad for normal use (8pm-10pm) so they can continue to train for competitions.
There are some disclaimer and risk assessment forms which need to be completed prior to actually swimming in the lake, which are linked below. If these could be completed and handed to Claire, Sue or the Trainer on Tuesday evening it would be appreciated. We will take some spare forms with us.
Wetsuits are optional and beach shoes are advisable, along with warm clothing to put on afterwards. There are hot showers in the changing rooms. You must bring a brightly coloured hat to wear in the water.
What to Bring
- Bright swim hat
- Warm clothes for afterwards
- Signed forms
- Trainers / Shoes for water
- Soap / Showergel
- Food for afterwards
