Private Swim Coaching

Our Private Swim Coaching program is intended for triathletes and other adults looking to improve their swimming strokes. We work with you one-on-one to address your specific needs and help you achieve your swimming goals. Instruction will focus on improving stroke technique in the areas of body position and balance, pull and kick efficiency, breathing patterns and core connection. Advice will also be provided for swimming conditioning, workouts, and racing and open water swimming.

The main focus will be on front crawl, but other areas such as backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, or flip turns can receive instruction by request. Participants should know how to swim at least 100 yards front crawl without assistance.
