Develop your existing base of open water skills with multiple open sea swims mixed with pool coaching sessions
Take your open water swimming to the next level with the support of qualified swim coaches
Combine skills gained from the pool and take them to the sea, along southern Mallorca’s bays and beaches, guided by experienced SwimTrek coaches
Learn more about your stroke through an in-depth video analysis session in a purpose-built 50m Olympic pool
This coaching camp on the Spanish island of Mallorca is the perfect way for you to take your open water swimming to the next level. Increase your confidence and improve your swim technique, develop your open water skills and build endurance through a combination of pool and sea swims supported by our experienced and qualified swim coaches.
Whatever your swimming goals, our coaches will work with you, both in the sea and in a purpose-built 50-metre pool at the world-class Best Swim Centre, in order to ensure that you get exactly what you want out of your time with us. Your pool sessions will include in-depth video analysis which allow you to develop your technique and improve your stroke when you get back in the open water. The facility also includes an underwater viewing area which gives you the chance to learn from your fellow guests as our swim coaches analyse their strokes.
Over the course of the camp you will also have the opportunity to complete some fantastic coastal swims and short crossings amongst some of the island’s hidden bays and secluded beaches. These swims allow you to put into practice everything that you have learnt in the pool out in the open water environment.
Who is this camp for?
This coaching camp is designed to suit swimmers who are confident in the pool and have some open water experience, but would like to take their open water swimming to the next level. It is perfect for those who are looking to improve their open water skills and endurance levels under the watchful eye of experienced swim coaches.
Swimmers should also have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of around 2 km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 3km (split over a minimum of two swims).
If you are completely new to the open water or feel that you need some further assistance with making the transition from the pool to the sea, you may like to consider our Introduction to Open Water - Mallorca coaching camp which also runs out of Colonia de Sant Jordi.
We have given this trip a 'Moderate' grading. Most swimmers comfortable in the open water will be able to take part and enjoy one of these trips.
