This Camp is aimed at intermediate level swimmers and Triathletes/ Open water swimmers looking to find clear, concise and helpful coaching towards faster swimming in Open water. This camp will enable participants to swim faster and more confidently.
This is the camp to understand how to gain confidence in Open-water. It will help you swim just the racecourse distance as many unnecessarily add 100's of metres, teach you how often you should sight and help with relaxed breathing. We can help with the OW FC technique as it can differ from pool swimming and wetsuit fitting skills. Race tactics will be covered, and we can help both Triathletes and those just racing Openwater.
The sessions are perfect for competitors from Openwater newcomers to intermediate levels (but several Pros have also attended in the past!). The aim is to mix practical workouts with talks, videos and demonstrations. Athletes who have a few years of endurance training in Swimming or Triathlon will find it manageable and entertaining. Please remember your swim equipment such as a pool buoy, kickboard, flippers and a wetsuit.
Comment from a former guest: "I really enjoyed the swim camp and learnt so much. The coaches were excellent and kept every session different and interesting. The filming was very useful, and the level of knowledge that was given to us was really good. I would thoroughly recommend this swim camp." Tracey, March 2019
