Through this page we hope to supply our current swimmers (and future swimmers) with some pointers in the right direction.
Many swimmers visit our pool and often ask Staff for "tips and advice" about how to improve their swimming experience. This might involve stroke correction advice, program and training advice; or simply a few questions about training equipment and aids (kickboards, hand-paddles, etcetera).
Perhaps you might like to do your own thing, in your own way, and this is fine. However, below are a few ideas and some suggestions below that you might be interested to try.
