CDS Inter Restructure – new options available for summer 2015

Posted by with No Comments

Good News from April 2015 CDS Inter members will be able to select which days they want to train throughout the whole term and book their “slots” accordingly. Training days and times will remain the same.

Please Note – We are trialling this approach as many of our CDS Inter swimmers have numerous other commitments in their life and by providing a greater choice this will give them the balance between training at a strong competitive level and other activities.

Monday 0600 to 0800
Tuesday 1830 to 2030
Thursday 1830 to 2030
Friday 1830 to 2030
Sunday 0700 to 0900

Swimmers are asked to select and book their “slots” from the following options:

Sessions per week Total Hours
2 4
3 6
4 8
5 10

Minimum booking is two sessions per week.

Sessions are guaranteed for all swimmers committing to ten hours per week. Other selections will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note that once you have booked and committed to your slots no substitutions are permissible. There will be no squad criteria, ages will be 12 to 15 years and membership will be at the Coach’s discretion, renewable on a term by term basis.

Sessions will continue to be coached by Araceli Cruz Fernandez assisted by Sergey Mandradzhiyski.

To be considered for graduation to either Senior CDS or High Performance in the future, swimmers will have to generally train a minimum of eight hours per week, be age eligible, and display the appropriate work ethic and commitment to both the training and competition programme of Inter CDS.

This trial is limited to Inter CDS only and will remain in force for the summer term. We will evaluate its success and advise of our plans for September as soon as is practical.

If you have any questions regarding these changes please contact Araceli CDS Inter Lead Coach
