Pool Sessions


Triathlon Focused Swimming Technique Sessions

These sessions are done in a group environment with 2 qualified triathlon coaches. Sessions are based on 6 weeks blocks.

Throughout the 6 week block, we aim to improve all aspects of your swimming. Including;

1. Front crawl stroke (including your kick)

2. Underwater pull

3. Overarm phase

4. Rotation of the body.

All of these areas play a massive part of your stroke and if not correct will affect your overall efficiency. If your efficiency is lacking, you will end up using far too much energy and slow yourself down.

Within the 6 weeks, we also spend a lot of time working on open water skills. Improving these skills in a swimming pool will give you the confidence and skills to swim outside in lakes, rivers and the sea. Which some times can be very daunting.


Swim Analysis – £65 per session – Session run by Sophie

SW Sports Performance has access to a swimming pool with video analysis in which the pool works the same way as a running machine – you swim on the spot. Studying video analysis is a helpful method which allows us to examine how you swim in all phases of the front crawl and stroke – so we can see where improvements can be made.

This session is designed to help you with areas that may be a struggle and improve your overall technique. To get the most out of this one-hour session, we recommend that you make time to work on the improvements that we instruct in the session.

We can provide 30-minute follow-up sessions which work particularly well as a monthly recap to further improve swimming development. The Swim Analysis is available as a 1:1 or 2:1 session.
