Portal Closure
 
The Portal pool in Irvine closes from Tuesday 23rd April for 10 weeks for major works on the drainage.
 
We’re fortunate that our swimmers train across four venues every week and we have worked closely with KA Leisure to arrange alternative sessions.
 
This page shows the times and venues for those which have been arranged as replacements for sessions held at the Portal.
 
PLEASE NOTE – ALL OTHER SESSIONS CONTINUE AS NORMAL
 
Development
 
The Thursday session at the Portal moves to Garnock from 17.30 – 18.30
 
Silver
 
The Thursday session at the Portal moves to Garnock from 17.30 – 19.00
 
Gold
 
Swimmers in this squad do not regularly train at the Portal and so are not directly affected by the closure,
 
However, for a 10 week trial period, we are offering the opportunity to try out morning training on Wednesdays at Garnock from 0600 – 0700.
 
This is not compulsory, but it will give you a valuable insight into making the progression into morning swimming as you move up the swimming ladder.
 
All Gold squad swimmers & parents are encouraged to give it a go, but if you swim the morning don’t come to the evening session.
 
Youth & National
 
These are the additional & changed session times only:
 
Monday 0600 – 0730 at Harvies
Tuesday 0600 – 0730 at Harvies
Tuesday evening – set aside for mindset classroom sessions at the Portal
Friday PM – Long Course training at Dollan, East Kilbride. Times TBC
 
All other sessions unchanged
