Stroke Development Sessions

Our Stroke Development sessions are popular with our adult swimmers, looking to improve their technique.

Stroke Development will develop your ability to balance yourself in the water and improve your stroke so that your swimming will become more relaxed and effective.

Key areas of work will be:

  • Breathing
  • Arm action
  • Leg kick
  • Streamlining

The aim is to develop your swimming technique so that you feel confident to take part in our Swim Fit sessions, triathlons, charity events or just become a more competent swimmer.

If you have a specific area you would like to work on please speak to the instructor and they will be able to help you.

These sessions are pay as you go, or you can block book a number of weeks in advance,  so you can commit to as many as it takes to get your stroke just right, or until you feel happy with your ability.
