Dover 2020

One Size Doesn’t Fit all
when it comes to training after
Covid 19 Lockdown

so you pick between a week of 1-1 or a week of camp

 

Already this summer we have taken swimmers from less than 1 hour to 7 hour and 6 hour back-to-backs while maintaining safety and social distancing.

Our swimmers will be ready for the main event when restrictions on Channel swimming and other swims are lifted. Are you?

We offer advice, coaching and training plans AND we are continuing with our one-to-one training in Dover. That’s one swimmer per one coach and we can oversee swims of up to ten hours

A week of 1-1 training in Dover

That means seven days a week we can offer coaching and individual training programmes tailored to what swimmers need as they contemplate swims which might be just days or weeks away.
