Training & Coaching

Training Times

We swim at the North Sydney Olympic Pool four times a week. Members can choose how many sessions each week they would like to do.
Our training times are:

Day Time
Monday 7pm – 8pm
Wednesday 7pm – 8pm
Saturday 10:30am – Midday
Sunday 10:30am – Midday
Bring a snorkel, kick board, fins and pull buoy on Saturdays & Sundays

The Wednesday and Sunday sessions are often followed by a drink and a bite at a local pub or restaurant determined by most popular choice on the day. Common spots are The Fire Hall in North Sydney, Blues Point Hotel in McMahon’s Point, Cafe at the pool, and The Kirribilli. Just ask around to folks on deck to see where the chosen destination is!


We currently have a roster of regular coaches at North Sydney Masters. Head Coach Steve Badger coaches lanes 2 & 3 on Mondays & Wednesdays, while Assistant Coach Guil takes lane 1. On Saturdays & Sundays our swimmer/coaches take over with Mark & Christina sharing the majority of sessions, while Mickaela and Alvin fill in when required. Sessions are varied and focus on both fitness as well as skills – including racing skills. If the coaching or training schedule changes, one of the coaches will usually send an email out to the club to notify everyone of the change.

If you have any specific coaching questions, feel free to have a chat with them on the pool deck. If you are interested in joining the club, be sure to visit the Membership tab of our website for more information.
