Take your open water swimming to the next level with the support of our expert SwimTrek coaches
Combine skills gained from the pool and take them to the sea, along southern Mallorca’s bays and beaches, led by our safety escorts and guides
Refine your stroke and improve efficiency through an in-depth video analysis session in a purpose-built 50m Olympic pool
This unique coaching camp on the Spanish island of Mallorca – a place of hilltop towns, lively fiestas and white-sand beaches - is the perfect way to evolve your open water swimming and take your skills to the next level. Increase your confidence, improve your swim technique and develop your comfort in open water, building endurance alongside a group of like-minded swimmers. You will benefit from the tutorage of qualified SwimTrek coaches and gain valuable insights and support from a combination of pool and sea swims, supported by our seasoned safety escorts.
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, ensuring that you get exactly what you want from your time with us. During the week, we will aim to cover elements of the following units:
|Unit 2||Body Position and Alignment|
|Unit 3||Catch and Propulsion|
Your pool sessions will include in-depth video analysis, which will 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 opportunities to complete some fantastic coastal swims and short crossings among the island’s hidden bays and secluded beaches. These swims allow you to put into practice everything that you have learnt in the pool, stretching out freely 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.
