Hi Swimmers and All Other Orion Members

More Great content added to the website including members videos

There is additional info on the 7 Day Plan page – take note of the Self Check page link now added giving you a series of movement exercises to check out how your body is fairing during this dry time to be used in conjunction with any land work session that you are doing.

We now have a second time for our list of performances and the first one form a female swimmer – Keep those times coming in

There is also a further video from EJay Surgeoner on the Keeping Up With The Batchelors Page – A great fun home circuit built around her abilities and stuff available to use – You can all do something like this, all you need is a smart phone. Get filming and send them in

Can I take this opportunity to ask all Orion members to sign up to the site – Please do not let finances get in the way – It is set up for everyone to use, and we have asked that members pay what they can – If you can’t pay then please do not stay awayJOIN NOW

Even More Pages of Web Site Fun

Hi Everyone

Your coaches have been busy creating ideas for land training and ways of keeping you, fit, motivated and interested. WE have been building new pages with the membership section and there is now a great deal of both internally created content and links to other sites with great ideas to keep you going.

The latest two pages are ‘Make Training Fun at Home, and ’Keeping Up with The Batchelors’ – Both of these pages are aimed at mobilising the Orion community into becoming active contributors to the site, sharing you own ideas and what you are up to at the moment, and ultimately keeping a record of what will hopefully be a unique experience in all of our lives.

Other pages include land work plans, tips on warming up, coaching thoughts, technical tips, and the list goes on

Please do come and look at your club’s website and sign to join and access all the additional great information and support – that includes 1:1 video chats with your favourite coach

If you are unsure about joining please email with any concerns that you have

Happy Exercising

Cheers Robin
