After three and a half years coaching our Junior Squads with Lynette and Phil, Maddie Tilyard is leaving us.
Thanks very much Maddie for all your efforts to help our squids improve. You have been a great support to the Club and will be sorely missed.
Maddie is commencing her professional career as a nurse at Royal North Shore Private. I’m sure she’ll be kept busy!
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Lauren Lyon to the coaching ranks. Lauren was a swim club regular as a kid. She went on to take up rowing competitively and has been coaching with Carlile Swimming Centres for the last few years. Lauren is a ready made replacement for Maddie. Please make her feel welcome.
Reminder about Junior Squads
Junior squads run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 in Lanes 1 and 2 under the watchful eye of Lynette Brown and Phil Hayward. Lynette and Phil are professionally supported by Cara Parker and now Lauren Lyon.
Junior squads are free to members and open to all. Parents are very welcome to come along and participate too.
Interested in coaching?
We are always looking to train up and coming coaches. So, if any older juniors are interested please reach out to Phil Hayward to learn more about coach training and coaching opportunities.
Just because too much swimming is never enough… junior squads will continue up until Tuesday the 22nd of December 2020 and recommence on Tuesday the 5th of January 2021, continuing all through January.
Adult squads will carry on as usual during the holiday season to help us all work off the effects of too much Christmas pudding.
Junior Squads will wrap up for the year on Tuesday 17th December 2019. They will resume when school returns on Tuesday 28th January 2020.
Junior squads are held in Lanes 1 & 2 every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 6am-7am coached by Phil, Lynette, Maddie and Sarah.
Junior squads are free for our junior members (6yrs upwards including parents) with your swim club membership. Junior squads are open to children who can swim at least 50 metres freestyle. It’s a great way for juniors to keep fit, train for Saturday morning meets and improve for upcoming school carnivals.
The popularity of Junior Squads is growing fast! We had 15 attendees last Tuesday. Lynette, Sarah and Maddie are doing an awesome job. Phil will be very pleased when he returns from his swim around Greece!
Reminder: Junior squads are run every
Tuesday and Thursday morning from 6am-7am in lanes 1 & 2 at Drummoyne
Swimming Pool. Junior squads are free
for our junior members (6yo upwards including parents) with your swim club
membership. It’s a great way for juniors and adults wanting to learn and
improve their swimming.
