Swim clinic for children

A specialist clinic designed for children taking place from 19 to 21 June.

As with the adult swim clinic these sessions have been designed to help your child to swim smoother, faster and further with more confidence in the water.

The two day clinic with Salim Ahmed, a professional swim coach from Swim Lab, will get to know your child’s swimming style and work with them to improve, especially focussing on front crawl and breast stroke. The weekend combines land sessions on the importance of streamlining, body alignment and ‘hydro-statics’, with pool-time and video analysis, as well as some extra child focused elements including synchronised swimming and tumble turns.

The clinic is recommended for 9-13 year olds who are able to swim at least 200 meters (eight lengths of a 25 metre pool).

Front crawl is the focus, but Swim Clinic is a bespoke experience developed according to the specific requirements of you and the group. You’ll be taken through the key elements of positioning, breathing and overall technique, enabling you to connect with the water and swim further and faster with less effort. By the end of the weekend, they’ll have the confidence to take their swimming further, Rio 2016 here you come!
