Coaching Programme

Our aim as coaches is to run a happy, caring and progressive swimming programme that meets the needs of all our swimmers and allows them to reach their true potential in the fullness of time. We go to great lengths to ensure that the swimmers get the very best attention both technically and physiologically.

Training and coaching has been structured in a way to optimise available pool and gym time and to ensure that we help develop our swimmers at a level that is appropriate for their personal experience, ability and development rate.
