SPEEDO OPEN WATER SWIM CAMP W/ SWIMFORTRI – JANUARY

29th January – 4th February 2016 

For the fifth year Club La Santa and SwimForTri have put together this Open Water Swim camp for you. The Camp is aimed at beginners and intermediate level Triathletes/Open-water swimmers looking to find clear, concise and helpful coaching towards faster swimming in Open water. This camp will provide the perfect introduction to swimming faster and more confidently in Open water.

 

Speedo Open Water Swim Camp Training

This is the camp to understand how to gain confidence in Open-water, help you swim just the race course distance (many unnecessarily add 100s of metres), teach you how often you should sight, breathe etc. OW FC technique (it can differ from pool swimming) and wetsuit fitting skills. Race tactics will be covered and we can help Triathletes and those just racing Openwater.

The sessions are perfect for competitors from beginner to intermediate levels and the aim is to mix practical workouts with talks, video and workshops. Athletes who have a few years endurance experience will find it manageable and entertaining. Please remember your swim equipment such as a pool buoy, kickboard, flippers and a wetsuit.

Comment from a former guest:
I got back late last night from Dan’s course and I just wanted to tell you that it was a superb course. I gained so much from it and feel much stronger in my swimming so I’m thrilled with that. The course was amazing. Dan is phenomenal! Sue Atkinson September 2013

The camp is restricted to guests staying at Club La Santa during the event.

INTERMEDIATE TRIATHLON CAMP

28th August- 3rd September 2015

The Intermediate Triathlon Camp is designed to help athletes carry on improving to the next level in their sport. The camp will be structured in a similar way to the beginner’s camp but a little more intense with harder and longer sessions. Athletes wishing to take part should be able to swim a minimum of 100m front crawl without stopping.

Triathlon Training Camp

We will provide training for a range of abilities, although we would ask that athletes signing up would be able to compete in the three disciplines at a level above beginners. You will be divided according to ability into three groups for the bike rides, which will cover most of the island. The running will be in and around Club La Santa, also using the track for some of the sessions. The swims will be in the 50 meter pool and in the Club La Santa Lagoon – a confined area of water with no strong currents, so it’s perfect to practice your technique.

Evenings

On some evenings we will be holding lectures on various triathlon-related subjects and we will have some open forums, where you can test the coaches’ knowledge and experience.
Please note that if you want to rent a Club La Santa bike rather than taking your own, you will have to arrange this separately with Club La Santa UK prior to departure. The price for a bike is around 98€ per week. It is advisable to book these bikes at time of booking and will be subject to availability
