There'll then be a short run session (parents will need to secure bikes at this point, as the gym will be closed.
We'll then decamp to the Gosforth Pool, where we'll have an overview of the performance pathway and chat about the squad, followed by the athletes swimming, 14:00 - 15:00
Smart Fitness is located in the Regent Centre - I've added a screenshot from Google Maps to show the way in (its not quite right, but close enough!). One of the coaches will guide you in once you're in the Regent Centre one-way system.
All athletes will need bike and run kit. The bike will be in the multi-storey car park, so there's a bit of cover from weather. The sessions will be working on technique, so they'll be a bit start-stop so think about bringing extra layers if its cold. All athletes must wear a helmet on the bike. I'm assuming that athletes will be in trainers on the bike, but if more experienced athletes opt for cleats that will be OK. Please bring gloves & hat for the outdoor work.
They'll also need clean gym kit for inside, ideally a different pair of trainers in case the outdoor ones get wet or dirty.
Swimming will just need costume, goggles and towel - we'll organise any floats, etc.
Nutrition - athletes will want a water bottle when swapping between sessions and will need something to eat before the swim, as it's a long day. Please make sure that snacks won't cause a mess.
