Training

While we do not operate any formal club training sessions we do have several informal training groups that regularly get together around the Hibiscus Coast.   Generally more activity happens over summer when the water is warmer and the sun comes up a little earlier but there are a few hardy souls who train year round.  Feel free to get along to any of these gatherings and introduce yourself.

Our Winter and Summer seasons are largely dependent on daylight hours and water temperature. Generally Summer season is considered October to April/May.

 


Swim

Winter 

  • Sunday Swim Squad - 7am the Stanmore Bay Leisure Centre pool.  

Summer 

  • 6pm. Tuesday Night at Stanmore Bay Beach.  A hour long swim to various points around the bay.  A good opportunity to get in some open water swimming practice.  Swimmers re-group at regular intervals to allow slower swimmers to catch up
  • 8am Saturday morning Manly Beach. Meet at the boat ramp for a hour long swim to various points around the bay. A good opportunity to get in some open water swimming practice.  Swimmers re-group at regular intervals to allow slower swimmers to catch up

 


Bike
