During the swimming pool season (November - March) training is normally held on Monday, Tuesday ,Wednesday & Thursday mornings / evenings. Swimmers will be allocated training times according to their abilities.

Tuesday / Thursday afternoon 4pm - 5pm or 5 - 6.30pm (squad dependant) Swimmers are encouraged to speak to the coaches about the number of sessions that they should be attending. With our short season we have found that the potential injuries with over training can be high - please be mindful of training within your fitness and skill set. 8U swimmers will be offered afternoon sessions only (and possibly move to mornings at the discretion of the coaching team). 10U swimmers need to talk with the coach regarding morning sessions.
CLUB BATHERS Whilst are club bathers are not compulsory, we'd love to see as many of our clubbies as possible repping the Mansfield Swim Club (especially those who want to compete). Purchases are directly via the Funkita / Funky Trunks webpage and can be ordered at any time throughout the season. * Ensure that you have registered your Swimming Victoria membership BEFORE purchasing so that you can use your 20% discount. If you are not sure what your code is, search your emails to find your welcome email from registration. The code is in the email and is valid until 30 June 2023 - and be used multiple times. * Create an account / login at the Funkita / Funky Trunks webpage so that you can collect "Feed the Funkys" points which act as credits toward your next purchase. The club pattern is called "Blue Bars" and can be found here:
If your swimmer would like some plain bathers as well, we recommend choosing the colour "Still Ocean" which is in a similar colourway. GEAR BAGS All swimmers need to bring the following to every session:
Named water bottle
Swimming cap - compulsory
Kickboard - we have club supplies for those who don't have their own
*Only for senior squad members. Gear is to be stored in a mesh bag (so that it can drain) and can be left at the club if needed (eg for our morning swimmers). Swimmers need to ensure that their gear bag is at the end of the pool EVERY SESSION. An example of the type of bag can be found here: www.funkita.com/collection/47-mesh-gear-bag
IF your swimmer would like to borrow club flippers either as an interim measure or for the season, we can assist either before or after their squad session. Names will be recorded so that club equipment is returned at the end of the season.
