Swim Coaching

“I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything.”  –  Michael Phelps

Swimming is probably the most technically demanding of the three triathlon disciplines and the one that triathletes often find the most challenging.

At MVH we have a comprehensive training structure in place to help all abilities – whether relative newcomers to swimming or competing at world championship level. MVH Tri Club has a number of level 1,2 & 3 triathlon coaches. However, the club do not have dedicated swim teachers, and so an ability to swim 100m (4 lengths) of continuous front crawl is a requirement to commence club sessions. This does not have to be performed with speed or style! However, if you are not confident to swim 100m continuously, and unaided, then we would encourage you to research options for local lessons. This will help pay dividends for you in the longer term and our coaches will be delighted to help refine your new skills!

Swim training is progressive and as swimming technique and speed improves the triathlon swimmer moves up through the swim lanes to the tougher swim sets. There will always be a mix of technique and fitness depending on the current training periodisation period for the year.
