Weekly Training Sessions

What Happens?

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.

Once you have completed the initial induction, training settles into a pattern of dynamic and/or static pool training year round, and depth sessions on Thursday evenings and weekends during summer. Training sessions are run by senior members who will structure the sessions to fit with specific goals. This includes helping our members improve their personal best performances (we have regular ‘PB’ nights), as well as training for specific club and national freediving events.

When and Where?

We have regular training sessions most weekdays, plus ad hoc training sessions that you can find on our Facebook page or if it's a workshop you'll find it on the Events page.

Sign up to weekly emails, check Facebook or the Training Roster for the latest information. 

Note we do not have training on public holidays or in the event of pool closures.
