Come and join SwimWild's experienced coaches Alice and Sarah for a day focused on learning the basics of front crawl technique.

 This workshop is for you if - 

  • You have never swum front crawl before. 
  • You struggle with the basics of the front crawl stroke.
  • You can do some front crawl but struggle to swim more than 100m (4 lengths of a standard 25m pool) of the stroke without stopping. 

Starting at 10:00 and finishing at 16:00 the day will include the following -

  • Introduction and theory sessions
  • 2 x pool sessions
  • 1 x swim specific pilates session
  • Lunch

Pool Sessions

The small private pool at Abernethy is a great place to start your front crawl technique journey. During the morning and afternoon pool sessions, we will break the stroke down into stages and work on breathing, body position, leg kick and rotation.


The day will also include a swim specific pilates session with Sarah. 

When you swim you need to work with the water - being misaligned can cause you to work against it. Pilates focuses on strengthening your inner support system (deep abdominals and muscles closest to your spine).  Being able to activate your inner support system will help you to attain maximum balance through your stroke, correct alignment and control. 


Alice Goodridge and Sarah Wiseman are both ASA Level 2 swimming teachers and STA/ASA Level 2 Open Water Swimming Coaches with years of experience teaching and coaching swimmers of all ages and abilities in the pool and in open water.  They are both accomplished long-distance swimmers, having completed numerous solo and relay swims between them. Sarah is also a Level 3 Mat Pilates Teacher.
