Ceinwen is an organiser of The Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub Swim so has a particular interest in preparing swimmers to take part in this great event as a 25km swimmer, or a solo, duo, team of four or team of 6 swimmer.

Ceinwen helps to coach and prepare swimmers to undertake the English Channel, Catalina Channel and various other marathon swims.











Squads run all year round, and are set up via different payment plans in Summer/Winter/Term and Specific Training Blocks. We break for public holidays and over Christmas and Easter. Over Summer when the pools are busy we often have training in the ocean or river. We are a squad of great people, who look out for each other, encourage and help each other achieve their goals, whether it be to keep fit and have fun, or to complete a major channel crossing. We always enjoy a well earned coffee after training, one of the most important bits!

Can I still come casually?

Yep. There is a different price for the 1 hour and 1.5 hour class. As long as there is space in the lanes, which will be indicated on the app when your checking in, you can come!

What if I pay for the casual but then something comes up and I don’t get there.

You have 1 month to use that casual on the particular day of the week.

Can I still use my Blue PAYG Card –  I still have some sessions left.

No sorry they have expired.

If I have booked in for a package do I still book in on the app? And what is the time frame for this?

Yes you need to indicate that you will be coming so I know if there is space or not for Casuals. You can book in up until the class starts.

Why are you doing this system of payment I like the old way?

Due to the increased numbers attending the squad over summer I needed to ensure I was booking the correct amount of lanes, not overcrowding the lanes or underbooking.  I have to give the pools 6 months notice of lane hire, and still get charged if they are not used. I need a minimum of 5 per lane to hire a lane.

To make it a better experience for you, to help keep you committed, consistent and motivated to come, to help track attendances, are all reasons that this system has come into place. Thanks so much for all the positive feedback during this transition.
