The last 6 months:

Over the last 6 months, we have seen our members grow from a small group of competitive swimmers who started the journey with us, to now over 200 athletes that have all participated in areas of our swim coaching that best suits their needs to help achieve their goals. 

These include:

Juniors  - Our Juniors have developed to stages where they have been promoted within squads at their swimming clubs and are starting to achieve qualification times for their respective counties, along with developing new skills and water confidence far exceeding their expectations as well as the enjoyment of swimming.

Performance Pathway Squad- Our Age Group Swimmers attend regular 1;2;1 sessions, both Short course and Long Course to enhance their current skills and to learn new techniques, strategies, build stamina and use this time to develop upon their pathway to performance. Achieving County, Regional & National times in the 2018/19 season, we have been proud to support them in every area.

Performance Athletes - Using our A.N.T Programme to enhance their existing training schedules, we have  worked with these athletes to renew confidence, provide individual and bespoke input into their swimming, as well as extend their knowledge and skillset to reinvigorate their drive to reach the top. Achieving British National Finals, Medalling at Scottish Nationals, English Nationals  & Welsh Nationals as well as medalling at the European Biathlete Champs with qualification to the World Biathlete & triathle events in 2019, our work with the athletes is exciting as we see them grow into the athletes they want to become.

Triathletes  - Our fastest growing and  most diverse group, our triathletes range from aspiring 1st timers to seasoned Iron Man competitors - Over 15 full Iron Man athletes have attended our sessions looking to improve swim times, successfully completing Iron  Man Copenhagen, Gdynia, Hamburg, Bolton (UK) & Lanzarote, with many of our athletes taking on Iron Man in Tenby next month. Working alongside the triathlon clubs to make the transition from Pool to Open water training for all abilities, providing bespoke, progressive sessions for each athlete.

Masters - Our Masters swimmers have returned to the pool with renewed purpose finding structure and guidance from our sessions that you cannot get with some clubs or public sessions. From making the transition to bilateral breathing or just learning to front crawl from a breaststroke base, our masters are surprising themselves when starting to compete over the longer distances and seeing week-on-week progression, they return each week for more.

Disability / Hearing Impaired - With fully qualified and current CPD updated coaches, we are able to offer bespoke training programmes to athletes challenged with disability. Our athletes perform using specific training processes which help them achieve their goals.
