Competitive Swim Training

Competitive Swim Training is for swimmers who want to continue improving their swimming.

Therefore, students can enter this training once they completed all Learn to Swim levels. This is because then a swimmer masters the correct Breaststroke and Freestyle strokes the basics of the Backstroke and Butterfly techniques.

During the competitive swim training our swim coaches focus on: stroke correction, duration, further developing swim techniques and prepare for start and turns.

In fact – the competitive swim training is ideal for swimmers who want to swim faster and as an option to join national and international swim races.

To reach the best results, we recommend each student to attend a minimum of two training sessions per week. However, to excel in swimming, it’s better to join all training sessions of up to five times per week!

The Competitive Swim Training is for students aged 9 years & above.
