New swim course starting 12 Jan - sign up now for a place

After the success of our new swim course at the end of 2017, we’ll be running our second course starting Friday 12 Jan, taught by amazing coach and 2017 British Champion (30–34) Becky Goodwin.

The course will run weekly on Fridays from Friday 12 Jan for 7 weeks through to 23 Feb at JAGS (Red Post Hill, Dulwich, London SE24 9JN) from 8.15-9.15 pm.

You will need to pay in advance for the full course and places are not transferable (i.e. if you can't attend one of the nights you can't sell your place to someone else because the course will build on what you have learnt in previous weeks). 

The course will cost £70 per person (that's a bargain price of a tenner per session, including pool entry) and for the course to go ahead we need at least 12 people to sign up, up to a max of 16 people. For details of the course, see below. 

To reserve your place please put a message in the comments section confirming your attendance AND ping me a PM through the forum with your email address (if you’re not already my ‘friend’ on the forum then just include your email address in the message request). We will start taking payment once enough people signed up below so please check you definitely want to do the course before signing up below. Places will be allocated on first come, first served, with any above 16 forming the waiting list. 

Once we have at least 12 people signed up below we'll be asking for payment straight away so keep an eye on your email/ this forum post to secure your place. This version of the course is aimed at intermediate swimmers, if you’d class yourself as more of a beginner swimmer then look out for the next course, starting 2 March.

The sessions will focus on the following:

- Breathing (eg head position, rotation)

- Streamline (eg body position, kicking)

- Co-ordination (eg core)

- Stroke Development (eg hand entry, catch, pull and push)

- Speed Development (eg better technique = faster speeds, pacing)

Based on a survey of participants from the previous course, all respondents

  • felt they improved as a swimmer as result of the course
  • felt it was great value for money
  • most felt that the greatest benefit of the course was greater understanding about what they should be aiming for in each phase of the stroke.

Everyone signed up so far will have a place. Great to hear all the people new to the club joining the  course. Once I'm back in the land of wifi (after the 1st) I'll email you details of how to pay so make sure you've given me your email address. You'll need to have renewed /started your Windrush membership to pay for the course so make sure you're set up and ready to go.

Hi Lucy, 

I'm keen but would need to chat to you or Becky about whether it'll be pitched a bit above my level. Wouldn't class myself as intermediate but I'm super keen to improve. Sadly I'm away a few weekends in March/April so the next one might not work out. I'll message you!
