Dear Member, there are still places available
We are very excited to bring you the opportunity to take part in a Swim Clinic led by retired Olympic Swimmer and Current British Record Holder Michael Rock at Chorley Leisure Centre!
As part of Michael's new initiative 'Rockstar Swimming', he has decided to give back to local clubs and swimmers by offering technique sessions to clubs in the North West.
The cost of this session will be £10 per swimmer made payable in cash (or cheque) on the night of the event. For this, swimmers will receive expert tuition from an Olympic athlete in the water and out of the water, as well as a photo/autograph opportunity before or after the session!
This session will focus on Butterfly.
We are offering two sessions each will be 1 hour and are available for the following groups on the following dates and times:
Sunday 20th March 2016 4pm to 5pm : Available to Juniors, JD & District
Sunday 17th April 2016 4pm to 5pm : Available to Improvers & Intermediates
This event is first come, first served only and we can only hold up to 30 swimmers per session.
To reserve your place, please click here and select the appropriate session: www.rockstarswimming.simplybook.me
*Reservation must be made and we will not be accepting any swimmer who turns up on the night without a reservation.
