TSS Aquatic is the leading age group swimming club in Australia. Operating out of The Southport School, our club comprises of approximately 250 members from both the TSS cohort and wider Gold Coast community.
TSS Aquatic caters for a wide variety of swimmers, both boys and girls from learn to swim through to an elite level. Our highly trained swimming coaches and superb swimmer to coach ratios allows every swimmer to reach their full potential and realise their dreams.
A busy and exciting week at the swimming pool with many swimmers heading back to their studies at school or university…learning how to balance these two areas is key to getting the best out of both. It helps when training is fun and there is so much more to training at TSS than following the black line. If you are going to be a great athlete you need a variety of skills in your arsenal. We are lucky enough to train in one of the world’s best facilities where we can use the classroom; oval; weights room; basketball courts; spinning bikes as well as two beautiful pools.
The coaching staff have been busy recently with Liam du Feu coaching at a Gold Coast 200m Individual Medley camp and David Thomas running a Junior Development camp over the holidays. Meanwhile, High Performance Coach Chris Nesbit is working in Europe in preparation for the World Swimming Championships.
Four of our globetrotters arrived back to the land down under this week…in fact Josh Parrish was at TSS for a paddle at 6am after getting off the plane at 00.55am!!
Emma Robinson, Kiah Melverton, David Morgan and Chris Nesbit turn their attention to the World Championships and march on to Budapest…go TSS. The Open Water kicks off on Saturday 15th July and the pool swimming starts Sunday 23rd July.
DT’s tip for the week is to challenge yourself to improve one thing in your training today. Pick one thing like your turns, your under-water kicking, your breaststroke or listening really carefully to your coach and focus really hard on it in today’s session. Set a new high standard for your training and then do it again tomorrow! One session at a time, one day at a time focus on perfecting that skill.
