Pre-Pool Warm up

Swimmers need to allow at least 10 minutes for the pre pool warm up, so should be on poolside at least 10 minutes before the session. the pre pool warm up will warm up the muscles before the swimmers enter the pool thus reducing the risk of injury and will also allow the swimmers to perform well from the get go.
