I’d like to start by saying thank you to you for being such an outstanding group of athletes. Starting a coaching company during COVID was a very difficult thing to do, and it is all thanks to your support and commitment to the programme. With growth comes the need to adapt and change.
As some of you already know we will be combining Wright Coaching and 26 Coaching to one company in the near future.
As such we'll be making the following changes in August at the same time as the start of the 26 Autumn Term Youth programme:
All branding will now shift to 26 Coaching.
Introduction of an online booking system - You'll find some instructions on first time use below with the link to sign up to the system. This will be a much better system for both you and I to track your sessions. You’ll easily be able to check how many credits you have etc. There is also now an option to pay by credit card - all the other payment options are still there, with the added benefit of you being able to track the sessions yourself in your account. If making payment by cash, cheque, Bank TT, or FPS I will credit your account shortly after enabling you to book into classes.
All sessions need to be booked in advance via the online booking system. Once you’ve set up your account, it is very quick to book into sessions. Need to book in 24hrs in advance. You can change/cancel sessions up to 24hrs in advance, anything under 24hrs and you’ll lose that session I’m afraid.
There is going to be a price increase. Drop in $250, 5 Pack $1200, 10 Pack $2000, Unlimited Monthly $2200. This will take affect August 7th along with everything else. You’re welcome to top up your current package pre Aug 7th.
Lastly the adult schedule will stay the same, but unfortunately we will lose the Tues OWS session as I will have to do a school X country session at this time. The Tues session will stay until that starts, mid Aug - will confirm exact date shortly. I will still provide a set each week that you can do as a group yourselves for free, but I will not be there to coach. This is only for the adults: youth guys who have been attending should not join this session without a coach there. I hope that with some growth will be able to reinstate this session later. There may also be a Friday AM Kennedy Town pool session added if I can get the lane booking. The last Tuesday OWS will be on 22nd August until further notice. We will put this session back on when school holidays are in effect.
Separately I will be away with some of the other athletes first week of August for Masters World Champs. It will be the same as normal - I will send the weeks worth of sessions that you can all still meet up and do together. No charges for that week as I won’t be there coaching. July 30 - Aug 6. Pool sessions will also still be on. Aug 7th all above will be in effect and the 26 Youth programme will also start.
The online booking system is already up and running. You will be able to see all the above reflected there. The system is not overly complicated - the guides will just answer some questions that I'm assuming may come up - just easing you in to it.
If you sign up for an account I can then credit your account with what you currently have - please reply if you want me to let you know what you have in credit before doing so. You can sign up without booking into any classes for now. From Aug 7th need to be booked in.
