Effortless Swimming – Freestyle Stroke Correction Clinics

A 3.5-hour freestyle stroke correction clinic with underwater filming and analysis that helps swimmers and triathletes improve their technique and efficiency by using the latest stroke development techniques. Live filming and analysis means you get to work on specific aspects of your stroke with regular feedback throughout the clinic. All clinics are run by specifically trained Effortless Swimming coaches who have competed or coached at a National or International level and have experience working with all levels of swimmers from beginner to elite.

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)

Amazing clinic. Just attended the freestyle clinic. You get to see were you are weak/going wrong with your stoke, Brenton then gives you clear, understandable and effective feedback and drills to improve, which you get to practice under his watchful eye !! The small group environment is friendly and supportive. I reckon the videos that you get of you swimming will serve as great motivation for the future. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The small class size of 6 people made for a relaxed atmosphere. Brenton was calm and professional, and has the knack of quickly identifying areas for improvement. With 2 filming sessions separated by drills to improve stroke, we all saw improvements on the day.

Effortless Swimming is really worth it Have been a swimmer all of my life however the ability to have my swims recorded and analysed is gold .The process used by Brenton allows you to actually see your stroke in real time and to fully understand stroke problems and corrections .The technique for addressing those issues is effective with one on one coaching enabled by the small class number and then further feedback through the use of a second video of one's swim. I would highly recommend this freestyle clinic for improving stroke and efficiency in the water .Chris January 2022
