Our goal is to make you a more efficient and confident swimmer. Your success in the course depends on your ability to keep an open mind. We will challenge what you already know about swimming and teach you from the ground up, the basics in swimming crawl (freestyle).
The courses are aimed towards the beginning triathlete and/or open water swimmer. Fitness swimmers looking to learn to crawl to be able to get more out of their swimming workout and wanna-be Masters swimmers are also welcome!
Our instructors are some of the best and have been educated by some of the best technical coaches in the world. We don’t teach a system of swimming like some other stroke schools. Instead, we help to personalize your swimming stroke through a holistic approach to make you more efficient in the water and to help you achieve your swimming goals.
Crawl course levels Nybörjare – Crawl 3 are offered in six-week courses with a total of 12 practice opportunities. Crawl 4 is a training group that practices two times a week under 20 weeks and is a part of our open water swimming program. During the summer months Crawl 4 swimmers are welcome to join with our open water swim sessions at Ribersborgsstrand.
