Swimming at Levante Beach Resort

Swim Development Week is taking place on 18th September 2021 at Levante Beach Resort. It is a fantastic opportunity to improve your swimming ability and feel more confident in the water. 

 

Swim Development Week

As well as lessons available in peak season at Levante Beach Resort, we also have a dedicated week for those who want to devote more time to swimming whilst on holiday. This week consists of 1 hour of training per day, run by our expert coach with 30 years of experience, Norman Jones. The week will be split into 3 ability groups, consisting of: 

Beginners: For those who cannot swim, the aim of this group is to build confidence in the water based in a friendly, comfortable and safe environment. The focus will be on learning how to swim on your front and your back, tread water, whilst learning how to enjoy being in the water. By the end of the week, you will be feeling confident to swim unaided and feel happy to do so. 

Improvers: This group will welcome those who can swim, but would really like to improve their technique. Your class will concentrate on stroke technique, mainly freestyle, but will also include other strokes. The session will also give guidance on how to make the most out of swimming for fitness and increased speed. 

Advanced: Perfect for advanced swimmers and triathletes. The week will be focused on stroke technique, mainly on freestyle, but also will cover butterfly, breaststroke and backstroke to help enforce good technique, as well as different breathing patterns. Backflips will also be taught on the session, along with tips on how to prepare for a training session; in order to maximise the time available in the pool. Norman will also provide helpful tips on open water swimming for both, pleasure and racing.

Meet the swim coach

We will be revealing a brand new swimming coach at Levante Beach Resort this summer who will be teaching both the group and private sessions. Our swimming coaches are always friendly, professional and qualified. They have a wealth of experience of helping all abilities of swimmers reach their goals and improve their technique and confidence in the water. Our swimming coach Ally Eyles was praised by our guests last year and we are looking forward to welcoming our new swimming coach this year.

Meet the swim coach

Norman 'The Shark' Jones

Norman has been involved in the world of swimming for over thirty years. He started his professional career at Imperial College London as the Swimming Development Officer, coaching and teaching swimming to all ages and abilities. This involved organising and coaching college students to compete in the National University Swimming Championships. He also coached school teams to win the National Schools Swimming Championships on six occasions.

He is a member of the Serpentine Swimming Club in London and swims on Christmas day every year without a wetsuit! 

My aim when teaching swimming is to pass on my enthusiasm and knowledge and hopefully give my students a skill for a lifetime of enjoyment.
