Pool Training restarts on Wednesday 6th February and we continue as usual with our training sessions over Chinese New Year
POOL TRAINING RESTARTS | TRAINING CONTINUES OVER CHINESE NEW YEAR | RACE REGISTRATION |
1) POOL TRAINING RESTARTS
If you’ve never been along to Pool Training then do try it! We do a good mix of fitness exercises for building stamina and also paddling technique practice (sitting astride the edge of the pool with the drain gratings removed in case you wondered!).
It is a $2 fee at the front desk when you enter the swimming complex (do add your name to the British Dragons register there too) and then the usual $10 to our Treasurer.
Dress the same as for paddling as you’ll usually get immersed up to your waist at least. The pool has changing rooms, showers, etc. As always it is wise to bring your own water along though the pool does have vending machines (and sometimes the cafe there is open too).
We meet at Farrer Park Swimming Complex on Rutland Road off Hampshire Road at 7.00pm each Wednesday evening. The pool is opposite KK Women’s Hospital about a ten minute walk from Little India MRT station. Here is a map of location:
The team will often go off to a local cheap eaterie for supper afterwards at about 8.45pm if you want to join along.
2) TRAINING CONTINUES OVER CHINESE NEW YEAR
Please note that we will continue with our usual Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning training sessions at Kallang this weekend (i.e. the 9th and 10th of February).
3) RACE REGISTRATIONS
Please note that SDBA have now cancelled the proposed Asia Club Crew event which was due to be held in Singapore in mid-May.
Registration is still open for the following races (if you have not yet registered):
MR500 – 16th and 17th March
DBS Marina Regatta – 18th and 19th May
Taiwan Race – 12th – 16th June*
Please note that you must register “YES/NO/MAYBE” for each race (so registration is required whatever your intentions).
(* In order to take part in the Taiwan race you must have competed in at least one Singapore race previously).
See you at Pool Training on Wednesday evening.
All the best,
Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
British Dragons – Singapore
