Backstroke Stroke Correction Clinic - Sydney

Sydney Backstroke Stroke Correction Clinic

Over 100 people have attended this class

Description

Small group, highly focused stroke correction clinics for kids and teenagers on butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke. Each swimmer has underwater filming and video analysis at the beginning of the clinic, followed by a pool session working through specific drills and exercises to help correct their stroke.

With a small group size of six swimmers per clinic, each swimmer is given tailored feedback and advice throughout the clinic. All clinics are run by Effortless Swimming coaches who have competed at or coached at a National or International level and have experience coaching all levels of swimmers.

Clinic covers:

  • The key fundamentals of each stroke giving the swimmer a better understanding of how the stroke works and where speeds comes from
  • Comprehensive video analysis above and below the water for all three strokes which is recorded and emailed to you after the clinic
  • Finding the natural rhythm and timing of the stroke for better efficiency and pacing
  • How to develop feel for the water and why most swimmers miss the ‘elusive’ catch
  • Building a rock solid kick for maximum propulsion
  • How to implement and maintain their new stroke changes into daily training

When swimmers and triathletes want to get faster in the water it’s not often a matter of training harder. Fitness can only take a person so far in swimming. The most effective way to increase speed and endurance is by improving your technique. We take the drills, techniques and training methods used by the best swimmers around the world and make them available to athletes of all levels.

A bit about Brenton:

 - Australian National Age Finalist (400 IM, 200 Breaststroke, 200 IM)

 - National Masters Record Holder

 - Australian National Masters Coach of the Year (2012)

 - Australian Masters National Championship Coach (2009, 2012, 2013)

These methods have been used with athletes and teams who have:

 - Broken National and World Master’s records (Kelly Higgins, Jenny Bucknell, Brenton Ford plus many more)

 - Made National swim teams (Sam Ashby)

 - Competed in the Olympics in triathlon (Samantha Warriner, New Zealand)

 - Won back-to-back National Master’s titles (Powerpoints MSC)

 - Win open water races (Too many to mention!)

 - Improved efficiency and smoothness of their stroke (you don’t have to be a top level swimmer to benefit from the materials)

Hi Guys, Just wanted to congratulate you on such a professional service. From the moment my daughter and I walked into the facility we felt welcomed and put at ease by the professionalism of our instructor. His experience was evident from the beginning of the video analysis explaining techniques in a way that could be understood by all levels. Persistence in getting the techniques clearly understood by the students whilst performing drills was exceptional. Overall, I believe the gains from this experience for my daughter will be invaluable in her development in the pool this year. We could not be more thankful. We will definitely be back!

It was my 9yo daughters first clinic with effortless swimming and while it is conducted in a small group, we (Charlize and her Dad) found it highly informative and yet still an individualised session. Utilising underwater video footage as a tool for constructive feedback is a valuable visual platform to do it with. Being a swimming parent, Mitchell was very accomodating and inclusive to me when wanting to be involved with the video feedback session and with a personal request. Mitchell does well to provide his feedback based on the swimmers age and level of understanding. Charlize is very pleased to have a few new tools to swiftly develop her stoke. I will be adopting this as part of the private coaching for both my kids and have already suggested it to other parents who equally invest in coaching opportunities for their kids.
