A one-day Swim Smooth Clinics based at the Oxley Sports Centre, Sherborne in Dorset.
Saturday 7th March – book your place
This one-day Swim Clinics will include specific coaching to develop your swimming and provide you with the knowledge and tools to continue developing your swim stroke following the clinc.
The day will start with a 1 hour pool session where each individual will be filmed from all angles – above and below the water – with the latest HD camera.
Each video will then be analysed to clearly show the key areas of the swim stroke that need to be developed for a more effective and efficient stroke and the key techniques that will help achieve this.
This will be followed by a seminar, with supporting videos of professional triathletes and swimmers, to illustrate how to execute an effective swim stroke.
The seminar will take a step-by-step approach to the whole swim stroke – breathing, alignment, rotation, the catch, ….. so that each element, and its importance, is understood. In addition to learning the techniques you need to develop an efficient stroke, you will also get a clear understanding of how to plan your training so that your performance will improve using Critical Swim Speed (CSS) as the basis.
A further 2 hour pool session will follow with stroke correction coaching focussing on the specific issues identified during the video analysis session with comprehensive coaching in the technique drills as required. In addition, an introduction to stroke rate and performance swimming will be covered in the pool using the Finis Tempo Trainer.
A swim specific strength and conditioning session will finish the day to help you to fully develop your swim stroke and performance.
Lunch will be provided, but you may wish to bring some snacks and drink, along with the following:
1. Swimming gear, i.e. swim suit, goggles and a pair of fins;
2. Loose comfortable clothing for land-based practical sessions.
