SS International Stroke Correction Clinics
Our World Famous Swimming Efficiency Workshops For Triathletes and Swimmers FEATURING FULL VIDEO ANALYSIS
Many thanks for a fantastic day on Friday in Huddersfield - it was brilliant, hugely motivating, professionally organised and delivered, informative, hard work (but not too much), and most of all, FUN!
I think £175 for a swim course is quite a lot to spend, I was a little nervous before-hand about value for money - but having experienced it, I now think its great value. I couldn't possibly spend that money on cycling or running and get anything like the benefit

You will come away from a clinic with a clear understanding of your current stroke from our detailed video analysis.
You'll understand the changes you need to make to improve your swimming.
We'll start you off making those changes in the clinic and give you a clear plan to develop your stroke specific to your needs.
We also point out all the things you're doing right too - it won't all be bad. ;)
Who are these Clinics suitable for?
Our Clinics are suitable for anyone who can swim 200m continuously.
A picture paints a thousand words...
As well as pooltime, each clinic includes fun, interactive class room sessions to understand the freestyle stroke better.
I've already raved about this clinic but I've seen the practical benefits over the last 2 days.
Did a 500m PB yesterday and was chuffed but today I broke my long standing 100 and 200m PBs just focusing on stuff from the clinic (staying long and streamlined, slowing SR down a bit, exhaling lots, etc). 100m down from 1:26 to 1:22 and 200m down from 3:04 to 2:55.
Very happy indeed - thanks guys!

More on Our Philosophy and Methods
Swim Smooth recently ran a series of Clinics in the UK & Ireland with over 120 swimmers and triathletes attending and benefiting.
Here's a typical story from one of the clinics.
Adrian Stott from Leeds managed to knock 4 minutes off his 1500m PB and was suitably impressed.
Working with Adrian from his Video Analysis session we demonstrated how the depth of his catch and the way he was kicking could be improved. With some simple imagery exercises he improved his stroke and turned in this great result.
Like Adrian, you too will improve!
So many triathletes claim that our worst discipline is the swim. If you want to improve your swimming then you need direction, you need to know what to focus on.
You may be unaware now but there will be some very specific things you need to work on to improve your stroke. Are you prepared to make the modifications and swim faster?
Swim Smooth created our Freestyle Clinics to help you meet your training and racing aspirations you have this season. You'd be surprised how simple some of our instruction points are and yet how much of a difference they can make to your stroke.
Our philosophy is very simple. We approach every swimmer as an individual. We teach sound bio mechanical methods in an easy to follow program, one which is versatile to suit you and your needs. So rather than using a cookie-cutter methodology, overwhelming you with technical jargon and showing you how you MUST swim, we'll show you what is best for YOU.
Recently, Nigel Gray, Ontario Association of Triathlon Coach of the Year and 3rd place Ironman Canada 05 finisher, tried one of our 75-mins 1-2-1 Stroke Correction sessions for himself:
"I like how you keep things simple and don't overload the athlete with too much jargon. By not trying to fit people into a mould you maintain that individual approach, which I think, is great. I will definitely be sending my athletes your way this season - thanks!", Nigel Gray
Swim Smooth caters for the whole spectrum of swimmers, from beginners learning freestyle to professional athletes like Nigel. We have the knowledge to do this from personally coaching over 5000 people across the whole spectrum of abilities all over the world. So whether you're already a fish in the water or you view yourself as the proverbial lead-weight, we can help you!
Swim Smooth Clinic Cancellation Policy
Please be aware of the following cancellation policy when registering for one of our Swim Smooth Clinic courses.
21 Day Advance Notice: If you are unable to attend, please notify us at least 21 days in advance and your full deposit will be reimbursed.
Frowning is allowed on a Swim Smooth Clinic but not encouraged. ;)-
0 - 20 Days Advance Notice: If you are only able to notify us less than 20 days in advance, you will unfortunately forfeit your whole deposit. Prior notice is essential for our ability to run a successful Clinic for you. As you can appreciate, a great deal of booking and organization goes into running a Swim Smooth Clinic and we need to know how many people will be attending so that we can prepare properly for this.
Swim Smooth reserves the right to cancel any Clinic due to unforeseen circumstances or insufficient enrolment, in which case you will get a full refund. Whilst we will make every effort to ensure that a course goes ahead smoothly, Swim Smooth cannot accept responsibility for any transport or accommodation reservations you may have made and subsequently have to cancel as a result. We apologize for this.
A Special Incentive for Clubs and Groups
We have found that a great way to create the perfect learning environment is by organising a clinic with an existing club or group. The 12 swimmers on the clinic will know each other well enough to go away from the full day clinic and converse with each other in their pool and share their experiences.
Working with a Triathlon or Swimming Club - the perfect Clinic.
If any structured coaching exists within the club/group, it's excellent for the coaches to be involved in the clinic and observe and work with us on the poolside.
We believe in this so strongly we offer every club or group of 12 a free coaches place on the clinic.
During the day your coach will have full access to the clinic and learning materials, and will be shown how our methods can be incorporated into your existing program. This helps greatly in sustaining your groups swimming improvements and motivation after the clinic.
If your club requires, we can arrange a special second day for open water techniques.
During the practical swim, core and flexibility sessions, your chosen leader/coach will be present with Paul Newsome and other Swim Smooth coaches. They will get first hand experience in our practises which will be very useful to the group in the weeks and months following the clinic.
Please contact Swim Smooth for further details and a quotation for your club / group in your location.
Exciting Coaching Opportunities with Swim Smooth!
