Session Status Key:

The system is designed to tell you as much as it can about the current status and availability of every session on the calendar. To achieve this, 'status buttons' with specific meanings appear after each activity on each time slot.

The status buttons are as follows:


Activate this activity by clicking start - first time only. You won't be able to book until you do.


This session has not been staffed yet and is therefore not available to book.


The window for booking this session has ended or expired. This may include lead-time.


This session is available to book.


This session has been booked by someone else.


YOU have successfully booked this session. (Private Booking)


You have 4 swimmers booked in to this session. You may book more by re-clicking if required.


You have 5 swimmers booked in to this session. The session is now FULL.


The session is now FULLY BOOKED. You are NOT booked into this time slot.


Sorry, this session is cancelled and not available.

Session Totals:

The boxes on the left appear on the timetable next to every activity EXCEPT Private Bookings.

They show the total number of swimmers/dogs/martians signed-up for that session.

Full sessions appear pink.
