SMART SPEED

Friday, April 6 and Friday, April 13

Swim smarter and save energy!  Don’t chase speed, let speed come to you.

This program includes both pool and classroom sessions and will give you the tools you need to be a more efficient swimmer.

Effectively train for speed and endurance without compromising technique. We will explore skill sets in two beat kick, propulsion, recovery, and more. We’ll film from multiple angles above and underwater, so there will be extensive video analysis and post-workshop focus lists for each swimmer. All film clips will be available on a dropbox folder.

Benefit from our hands-on instructional techniques, low student: coach ratio, and generous underwater videotaping.

Detailed parking instructions – finding the pool is difficult
The best place to park is the yellow rectangle that says ‘visitor parkade’.
Once entering the parkade, turn right and this will take you to level 8.  Look for doors that enter the building.  These doors will be next to the pool entrance.  Once inside the building, there are mazes of hallways and the pool is not well marked.   Please phone me if you are having trouble finding your way.  250-682-2314.

What do I bring?

For the classroom: Pad and pen for note taking. For the pool: An extra suit if you want dry ones for the afternoon swim, an extra pair of goggles – just in case, towel(s) water bottle and a lunch. Water is cool so a rash guard or wetsuit is allowed.

We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge.

Transfer policy

A request for a transfer must be received 16 days or more prior to the workshop. Then a $100.00 transfer fee per person will be applied to a future workshop, and the deposit will be credited toward that workshop.

Cancellation policy

NO REFUND will be issued for cancellations LESS THAN 16 days prior to the scheduled workshop. For cancellations at least 16 days prior to the scheduled workshop, any monies paid above the $100.00 deposit will be refunded in full. The $100.00 deposit per person remains non-refundable, but may be transferred to any future workshop within one year of initial registration.
