Titans: Swimming Talent ID Session: 12:00-14:00

If you have registered for the 'Titans Talent ID Session', your Tour Guide - a current Titans swimmer - will then accompany you to the two hour Talent Identification session in the Swim Centre.

The session will be split into two one hour blocks - one hour will be in the pool, and the other hour will be in the gym; all visitors will complete both sessions. The pool session will be run by the Titans coaches, and the land session will be run by Darren Ruff, the College's resident Strength and Conditioning coach. During both sessions swimmers will be invited to pit themselves against current Titan's members test scores so that the coaching staff can observe the swimmers.

During this session, parents are invited to attend a presentation and Q&A session by Director of Swimming - Coach Alan Bircher. The presentation will focus on the philosophy of the Titans Club, the coaches, and what the end goal is for every swimmer that joins the Titans. There will also be the opportunity for parents to meet and chat to current Titans swimmers who are at various points through the Titans journey.
