Officially the best swimming club in the entire Winsford area
This is the highest level squad in the club. It is for swimmers who are of at least a County Standard in a number of events and distances. Swimmers are expected to have the right attitude, commitment and work ethic to reach their full potential. All swimmers have to race regularly under the guidance from the coaching staff and make themselves available for all team galas. All swimmers are expected to train to the best of their ability and commit 100% to our club, coaches and team mates. The focus is to develop and nurture swimmers to achieve Regional and National standards. The ethos for the squad
is to be extremely focused on working hard and working together as a team to achieve success at the highest levels.

50m training in Liverpool
Once or twice a month members of the Juggernaut squad will be invited, by email, to 50m training at the Liverpool Aquatics Centre in Wavertree, Liverpool 10am-12pm.
It is really important to let Claire Brownknow if you intend to swim so the appropriate set is prepared by the coach for the swimmers attending.
As the club usually only has 2 or 3 lanes, the squad is sometimes split in to Juggernauts A and Juggernauts B for these sessions. Please reply to the email promptly to secure your swimmer's place.
All training is on as usual up to and including Sunday 4th August (except Transition - see below).
Week beginning Monday 5th August Summer Training Schedule will begin and will consist of:
No weekday morning training.
No land training.
All evening, SJD and Saturday morning training will be on as usual.
Bank Holiday Monday 26th is on, 7-9am for All Juggernaut, Platinum and Gold.

Transition extra sessions:
During August (3rd, 10th, 17th, 23rd & 31st), Transition C can swim on Saturday from 5-6pm at Winsford and Transition B and A swimmers can swim an additional 30 minutes on a Saturday until 6.30.
These extra sessions will be primarily to practice starts from the blocks and turns in preparation for the Club Championships.
I hope all our swimmers and their families have a good summer break, mentally and physically recharging the batteries. It is however important to keep base fitness levels up and come back firing and even more motivated for the 2019-2020 season. I will look forward to welcoming each and every one of our swimmers back in September, I am sure the new season will be our best ever. Lots and lots to look forward too, nothing could be better than training and racing for Winsford Swim Team.
