A weekly coached technique session.
Meet in reception 7:45pm, pay the session fee (£4) to the coach who will mark you off the attendee list. If you are not signed up you will need to wait until the signed up attendees have completed signing in, to see if there is space available for you to swim.
Once allowed through to the changing area get changed (you'll need a £1 coin for the lockers) and meet poolside for the pre-swim briefing.
If it is your first time please let the coach know who will be able to explain the session to you and help you to decide which lane would best suit your ability. The session follows a specific set, but if you need to take a break then thats absolutely fine - take a rest as you need it. If you have them, bring fins for fun. And its always good to take a bottle of water poolside with you, swimming is thirsty work!

YTC does Keswick Mountain Festival!
Location – YHA Keswick
Date – 17- 19May 2019
Cost - £85 (includes two night's accommodation and breakfast Sat/Sun morning)
Following previous successful spring social weekends, we are planning on heading back to the Lake District for Keswick Mountain Festival. This will be a great opportunity for all members as the Keswick Mountain Festival has something to suit everyone – as well as a chance for early season racing, socialising and general good fun.
Keswick Mountain Festival
Many of you will have heard of the Keswick Mountain Festival and some of you I know have raced over this weekend before. It’s a brilliant event with something for everyone – social and race wise. There are swim/cycle/run events as well as an early season open water triathlon. There are talks and events – including music and food, going on all weekend. Click here for more information on Keswick Mountain Festival and to look at the events that are running over the weekend. If you sign up for a race, you also get a ticket into the music festival on Saturday night – so all the more reason to race!
You can do as much or as little as you like, but it would be great to see YTC members as well represented at the weekend as we were at Kendal Sprint Triathlon last April.
There is also the additional benefit that staying at YHA Keswick means that we will be based quite close to all the action - making life easier!
The General Plan
The plan is, like in previous years, to head up on the Friday to a local Youth Hostel and stay over until Sunday. We generally meet in a pub/bar/local drinking establishment in the evening after checking in at the YHA, and generally map out the weekend - who fancies doing want and when. That's usually about the full extent of the plan to be honest.
In previous years, the weekend has often started with a discussion on which Parkrun and how people are getting there (there is a PR in Keswick - its an lovely out and back - see picture below from a previous year's trip!) and then who fancies doing what - or who is racing what - there is no obligation to take part in anything you don't want to, like always, its more about being sociable and enjoying the time up there with like minded people!
Keswick Mountain Festival is a really popular event so I am predicting that the YHA Keswick will fill quite quickly. This is one of the reasons I am posting this now – to gauge interest and potentially make the booking as soon as possible.
This year, however, I will also be asking for deposits to secure your place, which will need to be paid before 31December. These will be non-refundable if you find you cannot make it and your place cannot be filled. To be able to continue to offer these weekends, we must ensure that costs are covered.
