It gives me great pleasure to issue the updated training times welcoming the club back to Tollcross for several weeks until the centre closes for the Commonwealth Games in mid June.
The programme will start week beginning Monday 28th April. All sessions will be in the main competition pool and will be a mix of both long and short course.
This programme will run until mid June until the centre is handed over to the Commonwealth Games team to prepare for the games.
I will issue the relocated summer programme in due course as soon as all summer sessions are confirmed. Please note it has been planned and authorised by the club committee that the club will close during the two weeks of the Commonwealth Games. The final dates will be confirmed when the summer relocated programme is issued.
I want to thank all swimmers and their parents for their continued support over the months and years effected by the redevelopment of Tollcross International Swimming Centre. I am sure if you have been in the building recently you will see the potential our "home pool" has for the future of the swim team when we return in August.
The dates listed above are for your information however are subject to change and will be confirmed when the training timetables are issued as normal.
The return match against Inverclyde is planned for 24th May from 12-4pm at Castlemilk Pool.
The following swimmers have been selected, can you please confirm with me by 10th May whether you are able to swim or your place will be given to somebody else.
