Croatia camp 2017

It was brilliant to be back out in Rijeka for our 2nd camp partnered with INCroatia. We thoroughly enjoyed working with all the new guys – age groupers & masters! The different age groups and nationalities all came together over the 3 days and bonded in and out of the pool – thanks to Ivan running many games of ‘mafia’!

Loads of content was covered, all 4 strokes, dives & turns. Thanks to Perro, there was somehow even time for individual filming and sitting down for 1-1 discussions with each swimmer to analyse their footage.

The facilities in Rijeka are outstanding and who doesn’t like training in the sun?! Huge thanks to Ivan and the INCroatia team for organising and making this a fantastic event!

We will be back next year around similar dates, so keep checking for updates!

Živjeli!
Uzdravlje!

Abingdon camp 2017

Abingdon camp 2017We’re always happy whenever we are able to run our swim camps at Abingdon School. We were sold out for the 2nd year (so make sure you get your names down quick for future camps!). A great bunch of swimmers attended on both days a pleasure to work with them in and out of the pool. All 4 strokes were analysed over the 2 days as well as Team building, Core strengthening, Activations, Dynamic power, Circuit training, Goal setting, Race strategies, How to deal with nerves, & Inspiration!

Everyone that came left with key focus points that they are able to take back into their own training to be able to maximise their improvements and swimming performance. Everything ran as smoothly as possible, it was a busy couple of days and everyone left tired and smiling!

Wombourne Swimming Club

How great to be invited to Wombourne for 2 weekends!

During the pool sessions we were asked to cover Freestyle, Backstroke, Dives, flip turns and help the guys work on some weaknesses and think about their stroke and techniques in a different way. We also examined the mental aspects of training and competition and what it takes to be successful and a world class athlete. To begin the session on the 2nd week we also put the guys through their paces with a land training circuit taking exercises out of our own Olympic programmes and explaining and demonstration how to execute them correctly to assist their pool developments.

Independent Coach Education

I.C.E obviously agreed with us that Abingdon School has some great facilities and is an ideal place to host a swimming training day. This was another great opportunity for us to help explain and refine the complex and intricate techniques that are involved in swimming for teachers and coaches. Hopefully this way there will be some more up to date swim teaching and coaching occurring in UK and international schools. As always all who attended were very keen to learn as much as possible over the day and to get as much information from us as they can so that they are able to help their students and swimmers improve. Fantastic for us to work with some keen and driven adults. They even all got in the water and gave the drills a go!

The King’s High School for Girls – Warwick

Swim Swift Elite do not solely work with UK based swimming clubs, we have visited school swimming teams both nationally and internationally. So when The King’s High School for Girls asked us to work with their swimming team and said that they could do with some help with their Freestyle and Dives, we were happy to help!

The girls did a great job getting involved with everything that we asked them to do even if some of the technique ideas were very new to them. The visit was then completed with some swim specific land training exercises during an hour’s circuit training. All the girls were very keen for autographs and to talk to us before we left. We wish them good luck and hope that we’ll see them again in the future!

Norfolk ASA.

We were lucky enough to be invited to speak at Norfolk ASA regional development day in November about our journeys & experiences leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, and the trials, tribulations, and also fantastic highs we faced along the way. We spoke to around 25 swimmers, and some parents & coaches, hoping to motivate the young swimmers to shoot for the stars and not be afraid to do something different with the aim of reaching their goals. Best of luck to everyone there, we hope to see you all again in the future.
