Swim Squads, Wright Robinson College

Pool based swim squads with an open water focus. Ideal for triathletes, fitness and open water swimmers

We are currently out of the water due to closure of leisure facilities as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are looking forward to getting back into the ‘swim of things’ when it is safe again to do so.  Stay safe and look after each other.

The home of Manchester’s Swim Smooth Squad!

We appreciate time is precious when you’re balancing work, life, training, family and everything else. Knowing this, we use the world-renowned  Swim Smooth methodologies to help you get the most from your time in the pool. The sessions involve front crawl technique, fitness, pace awareness, Critical Swim Speed (CSS) work and open water skills.

As long as you’re comfortable swimming 400m continuous front crawl, you’re welcome to join us. We have a range of swimmers from those new to swimming training up to elite athletes. The current range of times we have in the squad are 5 -10 mins per 400m.

We think there is just something magical about the camaraderie of swimming with a group of like-minded people.  Your lane mates will support you through those more challenging moments in training; celebrate your achievements with you and help push your swimming further than you could swimming by yourself.

We keep coach to swimmer ratios small so that you have the chance to receive feedback on your swimming and importantly so you’ve got space to swim. Tuesdays and Thursdays have a maximum of 20 swimmers (6 lane pool) and on Saturdays it is 10 (only half pool availability).

We’ve just switched to our Winter timetable and, we offer three weekly pool sessions:

  • Tuesdays 8.30-9.45pm
  • Thursdays 7:45-9pm
  • Saturdays 2.30-4pm

During the open water season we take one of the squad sessions outside to Helly Hansen Watersports Centre at Salford Quays. For more information on these click here

We like to keep it simple, so we have 2 pricing options:

  • Squad: 10 session pass £70. valid 3 months
  • Squad: Single session £8

We operate a Pay As You Go system for these sessions as we acknowledge that sometimes life means you just can’t get to swimming no matter how much you want to!
