Endless Pool Coaching

Swim Smooth Certified individual coaching from the privacy of our own private, heated, indoor Endless Pool

Enjoy your session in privacy and with the full individual attention of head coach Jason Tait.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be the best swimmer you can be with a private session in our very own Endless Pool in Swindon, Wiltshire.

South West Swim offers a range of services in the privacy of our own pool.  These are led by Swim Smooth Certified Coach Jason Tait, a front crawl stroke correction specialist, level 2 coach and Aquaphobic coach.

We are lucky enough to have our own pool facility in Swindon.  This gives our swimmers a vast array of additional swimming options with 1 on 1 coaching attention.

All of our Video and 1-to-1 sessions are very technically focused.  We use video recording in both sessions to guide the swimmer and show them what they are doing in the water, a video analysis takes a deep dive into this footage for a total stroke review.   We also utilise the very latest coach to swimmer headsets so we can talk to you whilst swimming and adjust your stroke without breaking your swim.  We also offer stroke insights via an amazing new AI (Artificial Intelligence) program to dig even deeper into your stroke.

South West Swim Endless Pool Services

Swim Smooth Certified Video Analysis Sessions

The gold standard in terms of video analysis.  Swim Smooth are renowned worldwide for their in depth video analysis services and methods of coaching a swimmer as an Individual to get the very best out of their swim stroke.  No two swimmers swim the same way, so we don’t believe every swimmer should be coached the same way.

Mini Video Analysis sessions

A shorter version of our full analysis session, ideal for those who swim in our squads or who are familiar with Swim Smooth methodologies and drills.

1-to-1 Sessions

An individual attention without the in-depth analysis.  Ideal for those that want individual coaching input without the cost of Video analysis, or as a regular supporting session to compliment a swimmers own training

Learn To Swim Front Crawl

Sessions designed to build a swimmer’s existing swim skills and introduce them to the front crawl stroke.

HiiT Sessions

A fast and energetic training session in our endless pool.  40-45 minutes of ‘RED MIST’ esq training  to build fitness and stamina.

Sessions for Aquaphobics (NEW)

We are pleased to offer this new service for those who are scared of water and want to get over these fears.  These sessions guide you into the water so you are comfortable and start at a very basic level with no swimming involved.

Jason is a fully qualified level 2 aquaphobic coach

Junior Video Analysis

Supporting competitive club swimmers and triathletes with Front crawl development.  Junior swim analysis is a shorter version of our adult service, suitable for swimmers aged 11/12 – 14 years old.

Junior 1-to-1 Sessions

We can support junior competitive / club swimmers on a 1-to-1 basis in Front crawl, Butterfly & Breaststroke (Our pool is not suitable for back stroke development, sorry)

What is an Endless Pool, and the other technology we use to boost your swim?

An Endless Pool is a small pool with a counter current motor that holds you in place.  These are classed as Swimming Machines, think of a running machine but for swimming. 

Endless Pools are primarily used and designed as constant swimming machines.  Our pool has an adjustable current which can be maxed out at 1:08 per 100m.  This is fast enough for even the faster swimmer that we see over distance. 

As a coaching facility the pool is second to none as it allows coach Jason to see the swimmers stroke close up , and any inherent faults that the swimmer has will be shown by the pool.

During your session we also use other technology to enhance the coaching experience.  We utilise Video Filming, Coach to swimmer headsets and AI (Artificial intelligence ) stroke capture.

Our pool has seen total beginners, channel swimmers,  national champions, world champions, adventurers and even an olympian pass through its doors.  Come and be the next athlete to join us? 

How an Endless Pool works

Our Endless Pool facility - The pool

Our Endless Pool offers a range of totally adjustable speeds up to 1:08/100m.
We keep our pool heated at around 29 degrees, which is the ideal temperature for the technique based sessions we offer.
Or pool is indoors, in a custom made heated cabin

 

Our Endless Pool Facility - Changing

We have full changing facilities in the pool house complete with a rinse shower for before and after your session

Our Endless Pool Facility - Location

Our pool is based in North Swindon, Wiltshire.  This is just a short drive from the A419 and just offo of the main north Swindon arterial route, Thamesdown Drive.

I am lucky enough to work from home so don’t be surprised that we are not on an industrial estate.

What filming do you do?

We utilise handheld cameras and film in HD.  We have tried various filming technology and prefer a mobile handheld system as it gives us more options to capture every angle of your swim, which fixed cameras do not easily allow.

We use powerful apple macs and a 42inch screen to display your video in high definition, recording our session for you for later viewing.

We use camera work in our Video Analysis, Mini Video Analysis and you get to keep the footage as part of your session.  We will also usually film our  standard 1-to-1 based swimmers to show key faults in their stroke, however this footage is not analysed or given as part. of the session.

 

What is a coach to swimmer headset

We are lucky enough to have the very latest tech in this area, only released in October 2020.  This headset allows us to talk to you whilst you are swimming so we can give feedback and change your stroke without stopping you moving.  This allows you to feel the changes we are making to your stroke instantly.

We have used various coach to swimmer headsets in many of our sessions for over six years,  but our new technology is by far the best we have ever used.

What do you mean by AI? What is this?

This is truly groundbreaking technology and we have been testing this over the course of 2020.

When you swim in your video analysis session we may ask you to wear a watch, swapping wrists as directed in the session.  This device will capture your stroke data and we can use this to show you your movement, rotation, angles etc.  This is a very powerful tool especially when compared alongside your video analysis footage.

We are excited to be able to bring you this groundbreaking technology, with very usable and understandable data output.

What to expect in your session

Our sponsored athlete Luke Campbell kindyl produced a video runthrough of one of his video analysis sessions for us, please take a look below.

Please note this was filmed before COVID-19 existed, we have updated and changed our processes to provide a totally safe and covid secure session.
