Wigan Swimming Club (WASPS) have been fortunate enough to secure 50m training at the Liverpool Aquatics Centre from February until June 2019. To celebrate this, I would like to invite all eligible swimmers of Wigan Swimming Club (WASPS) to the 2019 dates of our long course, 50m training program which takes place one Saturday a month from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, please check the dates below.

I will be splitting the clubs time into two ability groups, to give as many swimmers the opportunity to access training in a 50m pool. Long Course 2 group will be then split into 2 x 1 hour sessions, as this group caters for the younger swimmers. If you have children within this group, I will let you know whether your child is in the first or second hour nearer the time.

The sessions are charged at £4 for the Long Course 1 group and £2 for the Long Course 2 group, payable on the day of the session.

The two ability groups will be split based on performance at the last time trials, please see the criteria below.

Please be aware that 50m training clashes with THREE Micro League fixtures and the Torremolinos Swim Camp, these will be depicted with a *. Please bear this is mind when applying.

  • Saturday 16th February
  • Saturday 16th March*
  • Saturday 6th April*

The sessions will be allocated to two ability groups.
As the Long Course 2 group caters for nearly all the younger swimmers, this group will be split into 2 x 1 hour sessions so as not to overwhelm the swimmers.
