Swim Smooth Clinics powered by Do3

Swim Smooth is the world's leading swim coaching provider and is the recognised coaching partner for the European and World Triathlon Unions. This 5 hour clinic is for anyone who is looking to improve their front crawl for triathlon, open water or pool swimming. 

Lead by certified Swim Smooth coach David Knight, this clinic will involve both classroom and pool based sessions during which the following areas will be covered:

  • What are the key components of a good swim stroke?

  • Introduction to 'Swim Types' and how the different types of swimmer should approach their training.

  • Analysis of the key drills that will help improve your stroke

  • Introduction to training using critical swim speed (CSS) and how this can help you maximise your training

  • Other elements such as how to adapt your stroke for open water swimming

​​Practical Elements in the pool will include:

How to perform the key drills correctly

A short CSS training session (don't panic about this!)

Swim type and key fault identification

By the end of the clinic you should have an understanding of the elements covered, what your swim type is and what the key 'big issue' with your stoke is and how to work to improve it. You will leave with a Swim Type training guide and hopefully a big smile and fresh determination to take your swimming to that next level!

This clinic is open to adults only and all we ask is that you can swim approximately 200m of front crawl (this is not a 'learn to swim' clinic. Sorry).

What to bring?

  • Bring your swimming gear (costume, goggles)

  • A towel and a drink

  • Also bring along any swim training aids you may have such as fins, pull buoys, paddles etc
