Swimming Workshops - All strokes
Front Crawl Swimming Class - Pool and Open Water
Front Crawl workshops or front crawl focussed swimming lessons in Lyme Regis or one of the swimming pools are available on an individual 1:1 basis or for small groups to help improve your front crawl swimming and understanding. It will help with confidence in the water, help with fitness and to enjoy the challenge of learning or perfecting the stroke or taking up a new sport. This is not a learn to swim class but a learn to swim front crawl well with less effort. Aimed at people who can swim but starting from scratch with front crawl if required, we will focus on improving your catch, breathing and breath timing, the correct stroke technique for your body type. Look at rotation, head position, body alignment and leg kick for a balanced streamline stroke.
I use both pool and open water MyDukes bone conducting headsets so I can communicate directly with swimmers in real time with no interuption in flow. I can also provide video analysis where required as this is often very useful for swimmers to see themselves and serves as a valuable feedback tool with stroke correction and technique work to improve streamlining and find the best way for you to swim as an individual.
Give me a call today to discuss a front crawl swimming class at a convenient time to suit you or your group. (weather permitting of course). For the winter the front crawl classes are held in the pool subject to availability by arrangement
Breaststroke Swimming Tuition - Group or 1:1
I believe that some swimmers are born with genetic advantages that enable them to excel as breaststrokers. (out-toed, flexible ankles, knees and hips). However, it is a stroke that you can learn and improve at, just like the other strokes. Although in my opinion it is the most technical of strokes.
So, the goal of the workshop or breastroke focussed lesson is to teach the fundamentals of the Breaststroke and how technically to improve. So, if your preferred stroke is breastroke and you would like to perfect the way you swim it so it becomes more propulsive and streamlined then do get in touch. We look at the timing of the stroke, your out scull/in scull, breath timing, body position and kick. Again, the MyDukes bone conducting headsets can be used so I can communicate directly with swimmers in real time with no interuption in flow. Video analysis can also be provided which serves as a valuable feedback tool with stroke correction and technique work decrease drag and to improve streamlining.
