OUR FIRST SWIM CAMP OVERSEAS
Throw-back to 2019...
A group of 17 swimmers plus parents travelled to Torremolinos in Spain during the October half-term holiday to take part in a concentrated round of swimming and land training sessions. The half hour walk, uphill to the 50M outdoor pool certainly woke both swimmers and accompanying parents in preparation for the 2-hour swim session. To start training in the dark and watch the sun rise over the surrounding countryside was an unforgettable experience.
While the swimmers enjoyed their outdoor training sessions many of their parents had their own ‘training regime’ with running sessions to keep themselves fit.
After the walk back to the hotel and a well-earned breakfast, the swimmers were taken through their paces by land training coach Richie, followed by some free time (usually in the hotel pool!) before embarking on the 2nd visit up to the pool for their afternoon swim session.
