#NewYearNewYou - 2017

Are you an adult swimmer and want to develop your swimming? Are you looking to improve your technique to take part in a triathlon or open water swimming event or are you swimming purely to keep fit?  Maybe you just want to come along to try something new and meet like-minded people?

Then look no further, the Adult Swim Series sessions are what you're looking for! Bookings are now open for the 2017 Scottish Water - Adult Swim Series pool events with Robbie Renwick, 2016 Olympian and 2015 World Champion Gold medallist.

Skills and Drills and Powerswim are coached sessions for adult swimmers and these events are in 50 metre pools. You must be 16 years or older and able to swim at least 200 metres. The Skills and Drills session will last for 1-2 hours and will focus on your technique and perhaps work on one of your weaker strokes. This session is ideal if you would like to improve your front crawl breathing or learn how to get more out of your swimming. 

The Powerswim session will last for 1.5-2 hours and is for intermediate and more advanced swimmers looking for a more challenging session   This session will work on your swimming technique as well as providing a tough workout.
