News and Announcements
We now have Day 1 of the 7 Day Land Work Plan loaded up into the 7 Day Plan page – This video contains both swimmers completing the exercises with supporting instruction for Josh Surgeoner
We would very much like to have a video for each day completed by Orion Swimmers, with instruction on exercise and filming from Robin and Josh
Any families interested in taking part in making a Day of The Plan in Video then please email me at Robin@orionswimmingclub.co.uk
Fingers crossed some of you are willing to do this for your team
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 away – JOIN NOW

Remember this site is for and about you the Orion members, providing as much information as we can during this lockdown period, to support you keeping motivated and fit, both now and continuing once we are back in the water.
If you haven’t signed up to membership yet to access all the great info then what better time is there to do it than NOW!!!
British Swimming have launched their own – keep your mind on both swimming and maintaining your brains. Here is a link to what they are doing – great that they are also being so inclusive. Enjoy Robin
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 Robin@orionswimmingclub.co.uk with any concerns that you have
