No boys allowed (Aimee only)

Being a female in sport can be difficult. As a girl there are many issues associated with puberty such as weight gain, social pressures, unwanted body hair, and periods. Being a swimmer means many of these issues are on display but to achieve podium success at any level you have dealt with it. During this session Aimee will talk about her own experiences of puberty and encourage the girls to take part and ask questions. No boys allowed!

Presentation lasts 30 minutes - Cost: £50

Land Based Sessions

Pre and Post pool*

These sessions include a structured list of exercises recommended for all swimmers. Pre pool will focus around muscle recruitment specific to swimming before entering the water. Post pool will focus around muscle release in order to recover and reset for the following session. 
(If purchashed on top of a pool session 30 minutes will be spent before the session focusing on pre pool, and 30 minutes afterwards focusing on post pool)

Land Sessions*

During the land sessions the swimmers will work through a set of exercises relevant to building strength to aid swimming performance in the pool. The movements will focus around the core, shoulders, lats and glute muscles and will be specific to the age and ability of the swimmers.

Foam Rolling Technique*

During a Foam Rolling session the swimmers will be shown the correct way to utilise a foam roller for recovery and performance. Good movement patterns will be demonstrated properly in order to do so. Without proper coaching points the maximum benefit of a foam roller is usually missed.
