Swim Development Week is at Levante Beach Resort. Whether you are a complete beginner or are already at an advanced level, this week will coach you to the next stage and help you to improve confidence and technique.
Run by swim coach Norm Jones, your swim instruction will be split into different ability groups:
Beginners: For those who cannot swim, or who lack confidence in the water. By the end of the week, you will be swimming unaided and feel happy to do so.
Improvers: This group will welcome those who can swim but would really like to have better technique and learn how to maximise your time in the pool for improving fitness. Your class will concentrate on stroke improvement and how to train using a pace clock with fun relay races.
Advanced: Perfect for advanced swimmers and triathletes. The week will focus on freestyle drills to help enforce good technique, as well as different breathing patterns, tips on open water swimming and long swims during the week.
All guests who take part in the Swim Development Week will still have full access to all of our other activities, watersports and fitness classes throughout their stay.
