    THE TRAINING SCHEDULE

    On Sunday afternoon, arrival day, your first session is an overview of the week together with a detailed introduction and explanation of the Swim Smooth process and swim types. This is followed by your first swim session, which is an informal, just for fun swim, so everyone can get to know each other. Your swims will either be in the onsite 25m outdoor heated lane pool or at various open water swim locations on the beautiful island of Mallorca. We are really lucky with our choice of hotel as our closest open water swim location is just 100metres from the hotel at the amazing Blue Flag, Playa de Muro beach. Our schedule has up to 3 swims per day during the camp and of course you can do as much or as little of these as you want to. To make sure you get the most from your week with us on your first structured swim you will be videoed ready for your analysis later that day. There will be a further video analysis session later in the week to continuously assess progression and feedback.

    We will ride on most days and we will also ride to different sea swim locations so please bring a small rucksack to carry your swim gear (including wetsuit). If you prefer not to ride there will be alternative transport available to the different swim locations.

    This is an amazing opportunity to spend time focussing on your swim with the help and advice of our certified Swim Smooth coach, and will allow you to take home a mass of new swim knowledge and tips and techniques to work on and get ready for the 2021 season ahead.

    The Challenge Tri Camp Coaching Team will be available to you to help and assist you in your swim journey going forward.
