Swim Smooth Squads, Wright Robinson College

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

Welcome to the home of Manchester’s only 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.

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 – we have always liked to do this so that you have the chance to receive feedback on your swimming and so you’ve got space to swim. From September onwards, we are keeping numbers even smaller in keeping with the latest guidance. Midweek sessions are a maximum of 18 swimmers and Saturdays are a maximum of 6.

Session times:

Tuesdays (summer) 6:30-7:30pm and 7:30-8:30pm

Thursdays 8.30-9:30pm 

Saturdays 2.30-3:30pm, 2:30-3:45pm or 2:30-4pm

As it’s the open water season, we also have open water squad sessions  at Salford Watersports Centre, Salford Quays.  These form part of our rotating timetable of specialised sessions. To see dates, further info and to book see here

We like to keep it simple:

  • Squad: 1×60 minute Single session £10. This is for our 60 min sessions, Tues and Thurs 8:30-9:30pm and Saturdays 2:30-3:30pm
  • Squad: 10×60 minute session pass £90. valid 4 months
  • Saturday Squad: 1×75 minute Single session £12.50

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!
