Improver’s sessions are normally one 30 minute session per week, however swimmers can access more sessions at an extra cost.

The Improvers section feeds in to a squad, so if the swimmer shows aptitude, focus and ability they will be invited to join the Mini Hawks squad.

It is important swimmers attending Improvers listen to their coaches, and have the correct appropriate swimwear and well-fitting goggles. We often find goggles that constantly fill with water and are uncomfortable cause a lot of wasted swimming time and inconvenience for everyone. Ideally wear a club swimming cap, as this keeps hair out of eyes, helps streamlining and keeps our pool clean.
