The sessions are a fully structured programme that combines technique, fitness and open water skills and practice.
Pool Sessions (Monday, Wednesday & Friday)
Throughout these sessions, we will use progressive stroke drills to increase power and develop each element of the Freestyle stroke and stroke efficiency.
The fitness sessions are invidualised to your current level and abilities.
Learn and review Open Water skills such as breathing techniques, sighting effectively, swimming straight, drafting techniques and pacing.
What to bring
Pull buoys, paddles and flippers are optional, but good to bring if you have them.
Open Water Sessions (Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday)
Tuesday and Thursday session’s focus is on building your fitness in open water, learning or practicing how to sight for course accuracy, breathing technique, drafting, in-water & beach starts, exiting the water and more.
Note: the focus of the sessions will depend on the sea conditions.
Saturday will be dedicated to a longer distance swimming such as 1km or 2km or 3km depending on your level and goals.
There will be lifeguards on duty and coaches in the water on kayaks/paddle boards. We will divide the group by ability to provide the best experience possible for each swimmer.
What to bring
Wetsuit is recommended. Wetsuits can be hired or bought at the swimT3 shop (across the road from Freyberg pool): https://swimt3.co.nz/pages/wetsuit-hire
It is always good to have the choice of having both tinted and clear lenses goggles for various weather conditions.
Anti-chafing balm or cream can reduce the risk of neck rashes from your wetsuit.
