I am thrilled to be introducing Western Canada to the Swim Smooth Coaching method!
After 5 years of focusing on Triathlon coaching, and the realization that swimming is often the limiter for triathletes, I decided to enhance my swim coaching services. In 2016, I attended a Swim Smooth coaching course in California where I fine-tuned my swim coaching skills.
At the Aqua Norte centre in Carlsbad, CA learning from Paul Newsome and working with swimmers.
Then, in January 2017, I continued my education and training under Swim Smooth mentorship, in Perth, and have now become the first female Swim Smooth Certified Coach in Canada and only in Western Canada.
In sunny Perth I had the opportunity to work with swimmers one on one as well as being involved with running large Swim Smooth squads. I got to experience the awesomeness of the Swim Smooth culture first hand and I am now going to bring it to you here in Calgary!
All current swim offerings are listed here: Services
and many more to come in the fall!
In addition to running pool and open water swims sessions, as a Swim Smooth Certified Coach I also offer 1 -2 -1 video analysis and stroke correction sessions. These 60 or 75 minute sessions include:
- High quality filming with unparalleled insight into your stroke from above and below the water.
- Full analysis and discussion of your stroke that is recorded for you so that you can watch later and be reminded of key points.
- Video mark up and side by side comparisons of your stroke alongside elite swimmers to help explain technique.
- Pool work where you are taken through comprehensive stroke correction work which focuses on your individual weaknesses and the root cause of your stroke issues.
