Time Trials are run by the Riverside swimming club with the help of the coaching team, and help measure a swimmer’s progress through-out the season.
Time Trials also help those younger members get used to how swim meets are run, so they more are confident during their race. It is important for the older swimmers to join in during these practice sessions to assist with these routines.
Summer Time Trials are run in the outdoor 50m pool, while Winter Time Trials are run from the indoor 25m pool
In both seasons, the coaches ask that swimmers arrive no later than the specified warm-up time (usually 3:30pm). Races will begin once warm-ups have been completed. NOTE – warm-ups are an essential part of the process as they help in injury prevention as well as forming part of race skills training such as diving and turns
