Oswestry-SC-2018

Oswestry Otters.

This September, we visited swimmers at Oswestry Otters Swimming Club for a session on Dives and Breaststroke.

It was great to work with swimmers across a wide age range, and we hope that they all took away advice and top tips for their technique on these two aspects of swimming. Even some of the parents were able to get involved during the dives to test their own reaction times!

Thank you to Tim, the head coach, for inviting us to the club and to meet everyone. We hope to see you all again.

Gold Coast – Australia!

This September, Amy had the amazing opportunity to travel and work with the GB Paratriathlon team at their World Championships out in Australia.

There as team support, handler in transition, and soft tissue therapist, I was able to watch the team prepare for their final race of the season, and be part of the action! Every member of the team that raced achieved a podium finish which is the best result that the team have had at major championships yet! Congratulations! A very impressive and friendly bunch of athletes and staff to work with. There was even some time to meet the locals (kangaroos!) and to make sure that I quenched my own need to be in the water by trying my hand at surfing after the race. I’ll stick to the swimming!

Plivački klub Medveščak – Croatia

During our time in Croatia this summer, we were also fortunate enough to spend 2 and a half days working with PKM, a swimming club based in Zagreb. We worked with the coaches, and around 40 swimmers ranging in age from 9 to 14 years old, on technique for all 4 strokes, starts & turns. There was also a chance to look at some video analysis work with the swimmers to help them better understand the workings of each stroke. With our Croatian speaking skills being pretty non-existent, the coaches were able to help with translation for those swimmers that needed it, the demonstrations helped too. Every swimmer did a fantastic job, and we hope to see you all again in the future! With the Croatian language class that the swimmers were giving us at the end of the camp, hopefully, by next year we will know a few more words!

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.
