October 2021 – possible 3-day training camp

Dear Member

As we are not able to coordinate a warm weather camp for 2021, we have been looking at offerings closer to home. Many of you will be familiar with Millfield School from regional events and they offer UK-based camps with training in a 50m pool. 

We have been offered the opportunity for a 3-day camp in October 2021 and are reaching out to gauge interest. The provisional details are as follows:

  • Dates: Saturday 23rd October – Monday 25th October.
  • Duration: 3 day camp – 3 days, 2 nights on campus accommodation with full board meals.
  • Training sessions: 2 x 2hr swim sessions and 1 x 1hr gym session per day. GCSC coaches will lead the sessions.
  • Transport: Coach travel to and from a single Gloucester location – times and location to be confirmed.
  • Projected cost: Maximum £235

This will be open to swimmers in Year 7 and above as of September 2021. Please note that this is not a ‘holiday’ – it is a training camp and the focus will be on the swimming!

We need a minimum of 35 swimmers to make this viable and can take a maximum of 50. Should we exceed 50 interested swimmers, priority will be given to swimmers in senior squads. If you are interested but concerned about whether your swimmer has the capacity to train for 5 hours a day, please note that reduced session times will be available for younger swimmers. Please feel free to discuss your swimmer’s capability to participate with your coaches.

​If you would like to register your swimmer’s interest, please complete the Doodle Poll below using your swimmer’s name. If you have more than one swimmer – please add both of their names to this section.

We will also need Team Managers – so if you are interested in attending as a TM (with or without your swimmer!) please add that in to the poll too.


Please complete this poll to register interest by Sunday 20th June.

Many thanks
