Training Rosters

The Auckland Freediving club is committed to providing quality training and development opportunities for our members. As part of this, we provide regular sessions each week where senior members provide structured training plans for members to follow. To share this work amongst the senior members of the club and also to provide our members variety in training techniques and approaches, members are rostered on to run a specific month throughout the year. See below for each training location and the responsibilities for the person who is rostered.

Tepid Baths

Tepid Baths is home to AFC Club Inductions. The club is committed to ensuring our members have a very high level of practical (in pool) instruction during their induction. Inductions run over the entire month and are extremely popular. Each induction must have one rostered club member as induction lead and AT LEAST one club member as induction assist (2IC). Inductions are capped at 8 attendees, with the possibility for 2 additional spaces for incoming full members. Once a person has completed the Pool Induction, shown they can safely rescue, filled in the membership form and paid membership fees, they can begin training with the club.  See the following link for more detail on the induction process. The induction sheet can be found at here.

Responsibilities of rostered club member:

  • Create event on Facebook the week prior.  Session starts at 18:50 (in pool at 19:00) and finishes at 20:25.
  • Develop training plan for each session. This should be communicated in the Facebook event and should also be written up on the whiteboard at the side of the pool.
  • Lead inductees through safety and club training practices.

Tepids training sessions typically end with a debrief in the spa and social catchup at the local pub.

  • 25’s @ 50s starts, Adv 50’s @ 1’40’’ starts.
  • 10No 25 minimum total duration, Adv 10No 50’s min total duration.
  • 10xstatic 45sec duration with one breath between, advance 10x static 1’15”

Pool o2

  • 10x 50m 2’30” breathe up, Adv 10x 75m 2’30” breathe up.
  • 4 swims at 85, 75, 75, 75% true max.
  • Good to start session with O2, follow with technique.

Lake Pupuke

Lake training is run at Lake Pupuke on Thursday nights during daylight savings months.  Depth training is very different from the pool and the club has specific processes to ensure our members are safe and can develop in a structured manner.

The club has several rigs available for training and to ensure people are able to dive regularly and still have adequate safety coverage, we have a maximum of 5 additional members per Rig.   To support this ratio, more Senior Members are required each month to provide enough rigs for the members who train.  As per the Pool philosophy of ensuring our members have exposre to a variety of techniques, rostered members will move to a different rig depth each week of the month they are rostered on.  The member rostered on the induction rig is responsible for runnning any Lake inductions that are needed that night.

Senior members are rostered on as Induction rig leads to help introduce new members to the club's policies and safety procedures for diving at Lake Pupuke. Rostered members are responsible for:

  • Posting events on Facebook for Induction Rig with the depth range
  • Closing event when 4 inductees have joined (add full to the description)
  • Ensuring inductees understand the AFC Depth Training Plan and that inductees have met all requirements and fill in the Lake Induction Completion form
  • Updating the Lake Induction Completion spreadsheet when inductees complete a Lake induction
