CLUB MEETINGS – Monday evenings:
The Club meets on Monday evenings starting at 6.30pm at the Maida Vale Aquatic Centre at the corner of Kalamunda and Gooseberry Hill Road. Between 6:30pm – 7:30pm members have the choice of either joining in the training session, under the supervision of the Club Coach, completing an aerobic swim or doing individual casual swimming. At 7.45pm, Club news is announced by the President followed by more swimming activities that may include sprint races, more long distance aerobic swimming or fun activities. Club night usually finishes around 8.30pm. Maida Vale Masters hires the pool complex for the evening and the pool is not available to members of the public.
Note: There is no club night on a Monday Public Holiday.
PROCEDURE FOR CLUB NIGHT:
Pay your pool entry at the counter and indicate if you wish to do the sprint races. A program of swim events is available however, if you feel you are unable to swim the distance set, e.g. 200m, you are welcome to nominate a lesser distance. The whistle blows at 7.45pm so take advantage of the time before this time to participate in the supervised training, the long distance aerobic swims or casual warm up swimming.
During the time trials, the Chief Timekeeper of the night will advise your heat and lane number. You then assemble behind the starting blocks ready for the start of the race. Timekeeping is a good way to involve yourself in the running of the evening and affords an opportunity to meet other members. Please feel free to pick up a stopwatch.
