25th September – 1st October 2020

This Camp, now in its tenth year, is aimed at intermediate level swimmers and Triathletes/ open water swimmers looking to find clear, concise and helpful coaching towards faster swimming in open water. This camp will enable participants to swim faster and more confidently.

This is the camp to understand how to gain confidence in open-water, with a focus on swimming technique.

As well as front crawl open water swimming we will also look at wet suit fitting skills, race tactics.

The aim of the camp is to mix practical workouts with talks, video and demonstrations.

Remember your swim equipment such as a pool buoy, kick board, flippers and a wet suit.

“Wow. You work incredibly hard. Thanks for your talent, swim brilliance, enthusiasm and sense of fun. Book chapters, drill set reminders and the prospect of homework (eek!). And you made time to edit filming of us all – which I’m sure will continue to be super instructive.
Thank you to all concerned.  To say that the week is value for money is an understatement.
In summary, the swim camp was (very) challenging, instructive and a complete joy!
Thank you!!” Karen, 2016

“Thank you Dan – definitely my best swim camp so far!! Your inspiration and patience was amazing. I couldn’t imagine before I joined this camp that I‘d be able to complete the 1.9 km open water swim – you and the team were absolutely fantastic from start to finish – thank you ALL.” Alan, March 2017
