South West Swim Pool Squads / Group Sessions

If Carlsburg made Swim squads……………well, they would still not be as good as a South West Swim Swim Squad!

Our Pool based group sessions (Squads) are regular training sessions held in Swindon.  Our sessions are front crawl focussed and ideal to provide regular structured training in a group for Open Water Swimmers, Triathletes, Pool Swimmers and those just looking to build fitness and enjoy swimming.

We have swimmers from relative beginners through to club swimmers, Ironman athletes and channel swimmers and world class age groupers.

Swim Smooth Certified Video Analysis

As a Swim Smooth Certified Coach we can offer you the very best in Video Analysis Sessions.

Our Video Analysis takes place in our own private Endless Pool in Swindon.  We will film our stroke from various angles in the pool, then head poolside to show you where you can improve.  We then head back into the pool to show you some key drills.

After the session you get to take away all your footage for future reference, along with a training plan to develop your swim over the coming weeks and months.

There is simply no rival to a Swim Smooth Video analysis session, book yours online, click on the image for more information.
