Front crawl technique sessions, Manchester Grammar School


Small group sessions for adults who can already swim 50m (any stroke) up to those who are building up to 400m front crawl.


Do you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions?

 

  • You swim comfortably on breaststroke, but you’re puzzled as to why you struggle to swim a length of front crawl?
  • You consider yourself a fit person, but you’re shattered after swimming a length?
  • You want to swim a triathlon, yet your front crawl isn’t quite as good as you remember?
  • You’ve worked on your front crawl by yourself only to reach a plateau?

Whatever the reason, if improving your front crawl matters to you, then these sessions will help.  

Day: Wednesday evenings – for times see each group description below

Venue: Manchester Grammar School, Fallowfield, M14 6HL (please note this is the Sat Nav post code)

Price: Per block of sessions e.g. this set of  6 sessions was £60. Please note as the sessions are booked in blocks, no credits will be given for missed sessions.


Across the course of the sessions we will cover front crawl technique (including: exhalation, bilateral breathing and stroke mechanics) via a progressive series of drills. As the group size is small (max. 8 swimmers) and we have two Level 2 qualified coaches working with you, each swimmer can progress at their own pace and receive individual stroke correction.

We have the 4×25 yard pool to ourselves.

Dates: 15, 22, 29 November

              6, 13 December

             The current course is fully booked!

We will be starting another course in the New Year (after the School’s holiday). To be kept up to date with when they will be, please fill in the form at the below
