SWIMMING - for parents!

MASTER SWIMMING SQUAD for DAA Parents

DAA would like to give parents the opportunity to use our facilities and be a part of our Master Swimming Squad. The program aimed at adults who can swim 100m Freestyle uninterrupted, regardless of speed and who are seeking to develop their swimming skills and improve their fitness.

The program consists of on-deck-coaching where the coach follows structured and progressive workouts and provides feedback on technique, instructions and tips throughout the session.

We have limited places for this program. Therefore, If you wish to join the Master Swimming Squad, please follow the link below and submit the form before all the spots are taken. The program will be starting on Sunday September 22nd at the DAA pool and will be running:

· Sundays 4:00 pm to 5:15 pm

· Wednesdays 4:00 pm to 5:15 pm

We are looking forward to seeing you at the pool!
