Penguins coaches on Swim England National Age Group Development Camp

David Cousins

Josh and David were privileged at the weekend to join the Swim England coaching team on the first National Age Group Development Camp. They joined a team of 10 staff delivering to a selected group of swimmers who came from across the south of England. Sessions outside the pool included shoulder capacity circuits led by a specialist Strength and Conditioning Coach and the completion of individual process and goal setting for the season ahead. At the pool each coach had a group of 6 swimmers per lane where the focus was on IM turns, including the development of the crossover turn and then the execution of broken IM swims in a swim set. It proved to be a really insightful day to work with new colleagues and swimmers and was certainly an enjoyable experience.
