Swim

Weekly coached swimming sessions for adults, juniors and families across Swansea and Neath.
All our pool sessions are suitable for novices, intermediate and age group athletes. We have exclusive access to a private lake for open water swimming for all our members to use, and we organise group open water swims at Mumbles (Verdis),  Aberavon and Llanelli North Dock and these usually followed by a coffee and a cake! 

Definitions:

Novice/Improver:

  • To attend this session, you should be able to swim at least 4 lengths (100m) without stopping.
  • You may have a limited understanding of swim technique
  • May lack fitness
  • A swimmer who can swim between 1,000 – 1,500 metres during an hour session
  • And can swim 100m off 2:30 – 3:00mins (you may not know these but you will if attending our sessions)

 

Intermediate:

  • To attend this session, you should be able to swim at least 8 lengths (200m) without stopping.
  • Reasonably fit
  • Technique: still in need of development
  • A swimmer who can swim between 1,600 – 2,200 metres during an hour session.
  • And can swim 100m off 1:40 – 2:10mins (you may not know these but you will if attending our sessions)

 

Age Grouper:

  • Swim sub 6 minutes for a 400m


Within the Swim sessions we will embrace the Swim Smooth coaching philosophy; three keys to better freestyle swimming:

  • Stroke Technique Development;
  • Swim Training; and
  • Open Water Skills.

So, you may be an athlete who can swim 750m but is looking to move up to middle distance races and needs to work on endurance. You may want to lose the pull buoy or learn to bilateral breath, you may even be thinking about your first triathlon and need to learn front crawl technique!


Coached swimming sessions are available to all members at the following venues.

Please be ready and pool side for the advertised start time. All swim sessions are pre booked and we don’t accept swimmers turning up with our registering.
