Training

All coaching is by qualified Masters coaches.

Our coached sessions are open to any swimmer who is a member of a Masters Club. We frequently welcome swimmers from other Melbourne clubs, and have regularly welcomed swimmers from overseas countries who have been holidaying in Australia.

At present the Club has 3 official training sessions a week. These are:

  • Saturday 7.45 am to 9.00 am
  • Monday 7.30 pm to 8.45 pm
  • Thursday 7.15 pm to 8.30 pm

There are also adult swimming sessions conducted by Aquarena:

  • Aquanauts- Tuesday & Thursday 8.30 am to 9.30 am
  • Oceanauts- Monday, Wednesday & Friday 6.00 am to 7.00 am, Monday 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm, Saturday 9.15 am to 10.15 am

Many Club members attend these sessions.

There are also a number of other times when club members swim together as a group.

 

Apart from your annual membership fee the Dolphins training sessions cost $4.00 per session. This fee helps cover the cost of equipment and helps compensate the coaches for their time. Rather than paying cash each time, the club has a system of prepaid swim tickets.

To purchase a ticket you make an electronic funds transfer of $40.00 for 10 sessions (or $80.00 for 20 sessions) to the club's bank account and present a printout or screenshot of the transfer confirmation to the coach on pool deck. The coach will then give you a swim ticket which you will need to get punched each time you swim.
