Junior Mini Pool Workshops 2019/2020
After a successful trial in 2018/19 South West Swim are bringing back their Junior Mini Workshops for this winter.
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 http://www.wiltshireswimming.co.uk/?page_id=133 for information and clarification.
Over the course of the Winter we will be running 4/5 of these workshops, each workshop will have different content. We will start with a short classroom introduction, followed by a 90 minute pool based session.
Our aim in these workshops is to supplement a swimmers swimming or triathlon club sessions with some further technical instruction that they can then put into practice in their daily training. The session will be designed with both swimmers and triathletes in mind and are therefore predominantly Front Crawl Technique based, with a high level of technical content, We will be introducing other skills such as dives, turns and underwater work and we may also coach a mixture of other strokes in some sessions, dependant on the needs of the swimmers.
The sessions will be held at Milton Road Health Hydro, Milton Road, Swindon on Sunday afternoons.
