Fun Fridays

Hi all,

From this week, Flyers will begin a series of themed training evenings every Friday (7-8pm for Academy and 7-8.30pm for Development). On these evenings the club will focus on elements such as race skills; relays; distance & pacing; kick, underwater work & streamlining. Water polo will always take place on Fridays during school holidays. These sessions are intended to highlight some important technical aspects of swimming and give members a chance to try out a new distance/pace, while also emphasising the fun aspects of the training programme.

The themes will be chosen at random by the coaching team. These Friday sessions will be taken by Karl West and Lee Adams. 

Please come, train hard and have fun.

Water Polo Taster

  The club has invited the Haverfordwest Water Polo Club to run 2 taster sessions at Fishguard pool on Friday April 6th and Friday April 13thin normal training hours, 7-9pm. The session will consist of water polo skills practises (with and without balls) and a game.   All members are invited, but we would like everyone who is planning to attend to reserve a place with Friederike so we can pass on numbers and ages to the coaches as they will provide equipment as well as their time.   Water polo is good fun and very good speed training for our swimming, and of course the ball handling skills are transferable to all sorts of ball and team games, so please come and try.   To reserve your place for the 6th or the 13th, or for both (please state in your email) please email Friederike.   Looking forward to seeing you there.

Easter Training

Please note that Flyers training is on during the Easter holidays, apart from Good Friday March 30th and Easter Monday April 2nd.   Friday April 6th and Friday April 13th sessions for all squads will be run by 2 coaches from the Haverfordwest Waterpolo club and no swim squad training will take place – PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR A SEPARATE MESSAGE ABOUT THE WATERPOLO.   The club is always keen to see our members making the most of their squad training hours. We would like to see improved overall attendance in the new term and remind all swimmers and parents that it is vital to be on time for training as the warm up cannot be missed and lateness of one swimmer often leads to disruption in the lane.

Swimathon 2018

Fishguard Flyers would like to support Swimathon and its 2018 causes, Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie. Our Swimathon session will be held on Friday April 27th at 7-9pm during normal training hours. Please could all interested swimmers enter here:

This link only will give you the opportunity to enter for the Friday session.

All Dev 1 swimmers are recommended to enter the 1.5k, the Dev2 swimmers the 2.5k, and the Dev3 swimmers the the 2.5k or 5k – your choice!
