Coaching Services Designed to Support Your Young Swimmer alongside their Swimming or Triathlon Club Sessions

Just for Juniors!
Swim Smooth Certified Video Analysis
 is also available for competitive Junior swimmers aged 12+ with a County Level qualification time

Video Analysis is a much sought after method of improvement in any sport and is open of our most popular sessions for adult swimmers of all levels.

But we can also offer this class leading service to competitive swimming club or triathlon club swimmers who want to progress their front crawl times by means of improved technique within the stroke.

 Junior analysis sessions are available to swimmers with County qualification times and who are aged 9 – 14 years (swimmers over 14 would be more beneficial with a full analysis).

A junior analysis session is simply a cut down version of the full adult service, with a shorter analysis part of the session in order to hold the younger swimmers focus and attention.  We will work with the swimmer to translate the improvement that need to be made into drills or focus point swimming, depending on how their club trains in their sessions.

We are also happy to work with coaches from other clubs should they wish to attend the session with their swimmers.

We truly believe there is no better video service out there, with as much take home material and expertise.

Endless Pool 1-2-1 Sessions

As well as our premier Swim Smooth Junior Video Analysis & Stroke Correction sessions we also offer a standard 1-2-1 sessions in our private Endless Pool in Swindon.

A 1-2-1 session is designed as a more regular session for the athlete looking for constant input and improvement in their swimming, however we can also see you as a one off client.  

We will work with the junior swimmer to develop their swimming, complementing what they are doing on a daily basis in their club sessions.  We are able to cover sessions for Front Crawl, Butterfly and Breaststroke in our Endless Pool, but sadly cannot cater for backstroke swimmers (due to the nature of the pool).

We are also happy to work with coaches from other clubs should they wish to attend the session with their swimmers.

South West Swim Pool Mini Workshops (No workshops are planned at the moment due to COVID Implications)

Our Mini workshops will work on different aspects of a swimmers stroke and are proving quite popular, so we have made them a a semi regular occurrence every 4-6 weeks.

We welcome swimmers from swimming and triathlon clubs (or swimmers meeting the criteria that do not swim in a club environment) who are at, or near, a minimum of a county level front crawl time, through to regional level swimmers and above. See for information and clarification.

As with all our other junior sessions they are designed to compliment a swimmers regular training in club sessions, providing a highly focused technique session with lower swimmer numbers that may not be possible in busy squad environment.

These sessions are mainly Front Crawl based but we do touch on other strokes, Diving and Turns in some sessions (where noted)

Open Water 1-2-1’s


As per our adult based sessions we can also offer our junior swimmers 1-2-1 open water sessions. 

These session are best suited to competitive swimmers aged 11 upwards, this is due to the lakes in the cotswolds having their own rules about junior swimmers. 

We coach these session from two lakes; Lake32 and Lake86.  The rules for junior swimmers are different in each.  Please contact me if you are unsure of suitability or if you wanted your junior swimmer to swim in a specific lake.

Lake86 Rules:  Swimmer must be signed off by an Open Water Swim Coach (South West Swim are working in conjunction with the lake to provide this sign off service).  Swimmer MUST be able to swim 400m Front crawl without stopping.  Swimmer must be aged 11 (at the end of the year).  

Lake32 Rules : (tbc for 2020):  all under 18’s must swim with a tow float.  Other rules to be confirmed

Introduction to Open Water Swimming at Cotswold Waterpark Hire (Lake86)

During 2021 we are working with Cotswold Waterpark Hire to enable your g swimmers to swim at their lake.  The lake rules state that 12-16 years olds are not allowed to swim at Lake86 unless they have been signed off by an Open Water Swimming Coach.

This Workshops is aimed at those young swimmers who wish to be able to swim at the lake and will work through open water skills, safety and lake specific guidelines.

The session is open to all young swimmers aged 12 (by the end of the year) – 18 years old who hold a County qualification time.  Please note that these are FRONT CRAWL workshops and the swimmers 400m test swim would need to be done in the front crawl stroke.

We are also available to swimming and triathlon clubs to book this workshop session for their club as a private session.

 Our first session in may is available to book now, with others being listed online later in the season if demand is needed.  We can also sign off swimmers on a 1-2-1 basis.

Open Water Squad Sessions (New & Coming soon for 2021, COVID restrictions allowing)

Open water swimming for junior swimmers is hard to facilitate for many clubs and parents so South West Swim are looking into holding a regular fortnightly session specifically for the kids.

We will have more details of this soon but we hope to be able to bring the Cotswolds its first regular Junior sessions for competitive swimmers and triathletes aged 12-16, who hold a County level qualification time in Front Crawl.

More information will be provided once we have established these sessions on the system.
