Our triathlon swimming coaching focuses on core open water specific techniques. These include aspects such as breathing efficiently in colder water, sighting, drafting, turns, starts and finishes. In addition we look at and provide feedback on your overall swimming stroke, including head position and breathing, arm cycles, kicking speeds and body rotations. Timed swims, technical swims and longer swims will also be included in different sessions. Our group sessions have at least one instructor per group of 6 swimmers, an ideal ratio for both receiving coaching points whilst also benefiting from having other open water swimmers to complete exercises and swim with.
Our coaches will bring an element of competition and fun into the sessions. However we are inclusive, for example on a timed swim we may run a handicap event, to bring a close finish for all.
All open water swim coaching for triathletes sessions are at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre by Canary Wharf.
