Back at the Pool

After a snowy interlude we had a good turn-out on Thursday at the pool, especially the juniors, who arrived in their new hoodies and some with new boats and kit!  The junior session was split between a poolside equipment briefing from Clive, with help from Paul H; and a water based session led by Adam, supported by Caroline.  The water based skills covered a warm up, some games with sweep strokes and then the session focused on X rescues with teams of 3 rotating roles.  After lots of practice the junior session finished with a recovery race – the length of the pool with a swimmer on the back.  It was a dead heat between the 2 teams.  The senior session was quieter, but provided time to plan the next few weeks of coaching and some of the spring progamme.
