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 and give you a stroke  be proud of and a satisfying way to enjoy great health.

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.

Who should come to this camp?

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


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. The fastest, smartest way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste.


Safe your best date from friday to sunday

  • April                 2th to  4th
  • April              16th to 18th
  •  April      30th  to May 2th           


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 moving 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 and relaxed weight shifts initiated in the core. Instead of generating muscular force you’ll direct ‘available’ forces of body mass and gravity.
