Year 9

TErmly Schedule

Boys will need to be patient - participant numbers are often very high to begin with, but usually reduce, allowing individual boys to be identified and to have more sessions.

Boys will need, as a priority, to demonstrate great attitude, the 'BIG "A"', in abundance. More on this at the meeting that takes place in early September.

Generally, after-school water sessions are 15:20-17:30/18:00. As we lose the light during the winter, the water sessions will become shorter.

Morning gym sessions are 07:00-08:00 in the TWBS gym.


September – October Half Term (7 weeks).

1-2 water sessions per week, via a sign-up form, enabling you to opt for your preferred days (subject to numbers). Boys will normally start with 1 water session per week, but progress quickly to 2 water sessions, but this is dependent on numbers and groupings.


Look out for lunchtime sessions in the gym from week 2. These will be introductory sessions, focused on movement.
