Our coaches are keen to plan a swimming training camp abroad in February 2017 or Easter 2017 for a small group of swimmers (if successful we can look at taking a larger group on future camps).
The psychological and physiological benefits of warm weather training camps are well documented by swimming professionals; The camps allow athletes to train more consistently and at higher intensities compared to regular training back at home and a full programme of pool and gym traoining will be provided by our coaches. Warm weather training also provides a different stumulus for athletes and helps to build a strong team ethos. We believe this will provide a valuable life experience for all swimmers taking part.
Swimmers will need to be 14 years old or older and currently we think the cost would be about £750-£1000. Swimmers would be encouraged to do some fundraising to help with covering the costs.
Please could you let us know by email or the website contact us form if your swimmer would be interested in going on a training camp abroad. Once we have an idea of interest we will be able to start looking at locations and getting a more definite idea of costs etc and can send out some more details.
