Technique Squad Refresher Course
Wednesdays 7-8 & 8-9pm at Oxford Park Club
Tune up your freestyle technique and get back into regular swim fitness training, with a hybrid between an Improver Course and a Squad Session. Maximum 8 people per course (4 per lane), so you'll get lots of individual expert feedback on your stroke technique as well as the usual social squad banter! At Oxford Park Club (by the Kassam Stadium).
We have two classes suitable for different abilities so you can swim in a lane with people the same speed:
7-8pm Beginner/Intermediate class
8-9pm Intermediate/Advanced class
8.30pm every Tuesday at Abingdon School
Coaching to help you tune up your freestyle stroke faults, enabling you to swim distance freestyle more efficiently. This is suitable for beginner freestylers, intermediate triathletes and open water swimmers.
You're given a suitable swimming volume for your ability so no-one ever feels like they can't keep up or they're not being challenged. Your fitness will improve and you'll be able to swim faster over longer distances.
We have an affectionately named 'Learner Lane' to take things at your own pace while your technique, fitness and confidence develop.
8.30pm every Thursday at Abingdon School
This session is guaranteed to improve your endurance swimming and race performances.
You'll swim at your own pace while you build your cardio vascular/respiratory fitness, so you can start pushing yourself a little bit more while you swim.
Each swimmer is given a suitable swimming volume for your ability so no-one ever feels like they can't keep up or they're not being challenged.
Take things at your own pace in our 'Learner Lane' while your technique, fitness and confidence develop.
What People Say
"I turned up to Tri Swim Coaching a complete swimming newbie. Although I could stay afloat in the water, I couldn't manage swimming more than 4 lengths without having to stop to catch my breath. This year I swam my first 10km event in open water.
Ali and Annie don't yell incomprehensible instructions from poolside. Instead, what you get is clear guidance and plenty of contagious enthusiasm. It was their passion for swimming and my improvements that spurred me on. Initially I booked 1-2-1 coaching sessions, but as I grew in confidence and ability, I joined their squads. If you are thinking "Are these guys any good? Do they know their stuff?" Absolutely. Get in touch and book a session. You will not regret it."
I signed up for the Tuesday evening session at Abingdon School just a couple of weeks before the Bleinheim Triathlon to try and get a few tips to help with the swim. I thought I’d left it far too late but PJ was amazing and helped me with breathing and technique. I managed to knock 90 seconds off my swim and an overall 6 1/2 minutes off all three disciplines due to the energy I saved on the swim. Thanks so much.
"Five star rating to the Team at Tri Swim Coaching without any hesitation!! I have been working with Ali & Annie since 2015 and have benefited from their expertise in all aspects of the sport of triathlon. The bespoke training plans developed for me together with the group squads have produced significant improvements in each of the three disciplines . I have seen my individual CSS pace improve from a start point of 1:50 / 100m at my first video analysis, to a peak of 1:33/100m during this year's race season. A great team!!!"
