Training Times

What do we offer?

Thorne Tigers SC currently operates two different training sessions, covering all age groups and all abilities. These sessions range from improving swimming up to full competitive training. We also cater for swimmers who want to train but not compete in galas. The information below details these sessions. As a club we pride ourselves on being a friendly and open club.

1st Session

Tuesday 18:30 - 19:30 | Thursday 17:45 - 18:45 | Sunday 14:00 - 15:00


This session is made up of our development groups, which cater for many of our swimmers. With these swimmers being split into two main groups.

  • The aim of the first group is to improve technique and stamina, but also to introduce swimmers to more coaching based activities. More challenging competition skills begin to be introduced in this group.
  • Once stamina and skill has developed, swimmers then progress to the second group. Again training in competitive swimming skills continues, and depending on age swimmers have the opportunity to take part in some of the galas that the club takes part in.

2nd Session

Tuesday 19:30 - 20:30 | Thursday 18:45 - 19:45 | Sunday 15:00 - 16:00


This session currently caters for two different groups within the club.

  • The first group contains our more advanced swimmers, many of who choose to take part in swimming galas. The ability in this ranges from those swimmers who are relatively new to competitive swimming, through to those who regularly swim at higher grade galas.
  • The second group contains some of our older swimmers which might not want to compete in galas but wish to do swim training.
