South West Swim Clinics & Workshops
Swim Smooth Stroke Correction Clinics
A day you will remember. These clinics are much sought after and offer a day of learning about the world class Swim Smooth coaching methodology. Each swimmer receives individual filming and video analysis, alongside two pool sessions and classroom learning.
This clinic is the start of your journey to become a better swimmer with more in depth knowledge on how to change your stroke.
Pool To Open Water Workshops
a 90 mInute session designed to teach or recap key open water skills from the comfort of a swimming pool. The pool will be laid out with an open water buoyed course as we boost your confidence and skills for the open water season ahead.
Suitable for the new open water swimmer, or those wishing to practice and recap their skills before the open water and triathlon racing season.
Introduction To Open Water & Triathlon Swimming
This session is our passion and what drives us every season as it is an amazing feeling getting new swimmers into the water and enjoying their open water.
This session is aimed at new and novice open water swimmers who wish to get into the lakes for pleasure, leisure or competition.
Your coaches will guide you through all the do’s and don’t of open water and teach you some key skills that you will need for any events you are doing.
Introduction To Wild Swimming
We can now offer a small group version of our popular 1-to-1 based session for the non competitive swimmer.
This session is aimed at the non front crawl swimmer who wants to start open water swimming for mental and physical well being. We will guide you through acclimatisation and safety, and get you swimming with us in deeper water. A safe and ideal start to your open water journey, without stress but with lots of relaxing and fun.
Open Water Safety Essentials Mini Workshops
An original idea from South West Swim.
The explosion and popularity of open water swimming in recent years has led to more swimmers taking to the water from non swimming or pool swimming backgrounds.
Our Safety Essentials Mini Workshops aim to give new swimmers a basic understanding of the open water environment and how to handle emergency situations and self rescue.
We are working closely with our lake providers to give you these sessions so you will learn some fundamental general skills and also some venue specific safety.
Open Water Skills Essential Tune Ups
These clinics offer very focused advice on coaching on key open water skills. You will be guided through each skill, practicing individually and then as a group. We will explore various drills and exercises you can use to build up each skill so you can walk away from the session with a greater understanding on what to do, how to do it and how it can interact with your swim stroke and style.
Bespoke clinics & sessions for clubs and businesses
We can offer most of our clinics and session types to support swim clubs, masters clubs, triathlon clubs or even businesses looking for something a bit different.
Please get in contact to discuss this option with us
Support materials after your session
Our clinics offer a great learning experience and we don’t want that learning to sort after we get out of the water. We will give you some take-home material after a clinic or workshop to further expand your knowledge and/or allow you to practice in your own sessions. This will either be in online ‘booklet’ form or online content through the Swim Smooth Guru.
How to book Your Clinic
All of our sessions are scheduled and booked online through our booking system, or our funky South West Swim mobile App.
We don’t run clinics on regular dates so we apologise in advance if the session you wish to attend is not available. Keep checking back though as we add clinic sessions in as we arrange them. Our flagship Millfield Swim SMooth Stroke correction clinic n usually takes place every February. Open water clinics are usually between march and august.
