SWIMMING CAMP 5th & 6th October 2019 At Elche, (Alicante) SPAIN

This open water swimming camp is a combination of the swimming coaching knowledge of this two Total Immersion Level III certificate coachs Sabine Vollmer and Rafael Aledo. So, whether you are training for a triathlon or a long distance open water swim this camp is for you!

Ability Level: This camp is aimed at swimmers with some experience

Nearest airport: Alicante, 20´from Elche

Course objective:

Improve the swimming efficiency of the participants, as well as your strategies to face your long distance open water swimming events or triathlon races.

Would you like to be able to swim a mile or more with easy grace, enjoy every stroke and feel energized, not exhausted, when you finish? Would you like to make swimming the best part of triathlon or swim confidently in open water? Our swimming camps will help you achieve those goals; give you a stroke you’ll be proud of and a satisfying way to enjoy great health.

Who should come to this camp?

  • Swimmers who want to develop great habits
  • Swimmers who have struggled to improve
  • Self-coached swimmers who would like expert assessment and advice
  • Long-time swimmers who find themselves stuck on a plateau or who have lost motivation.


Human swimmers are energy-wasting machines: typically, we convert only 3% of energy into forward motion. (Dolphins convert 80% and even elite swimmers like Michael Phelps convert only 9%!) Dolphins move through water, humans move water around, so swimming farther or harder, as traditional programs advise, will only make your ‘struggling skills’ more permanent. The fastest, smartest way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste.


During the camps you’ll learn the three foundation skills of effortless distance swimming:


Become ‘weightless’ by learning to cooperate with gravity instead of fighting it. Learning balance transforms struggle into smoothness and calms churning legs. It also brings the body control and mental calm necessary to learn every skill that follows.


Learn to move through water, rather than move it around, by:

  • Shaping your body to be longer, better aligned, more hydrodynamic;
  • and Stroking in ways that minimize waves and turbulence with out changing your direction.


Replace churning with effortless power by connecting arm and leg actions to rhythmic, relaxed weight shifts initiated in the core. Instead of generating muscular force you’ll direct ‘available’ forces of body mass and gravity.
