Announcing New Swim Smooth Coaches In Florida, Kentucky & Guildford UK

Working on your stroke 1-to-1 with a fully qualified
Swim Smooth Coach is a revelatory experience.
Swim Smooth are very proud to announce the certification of three new Swim Smooth Coaches in Louisville Kentucky, Palm Beach Florida and Guildford UK.

Training to be a SS Coach is a huge undertaking. Developing the necessary skills and experience of advanced video analysis, stroke correction, squad coaching and open water skills takes time and cannot be rushed. We are fortunate enough to be able to pick our coaches from a large talent pool but even for very experienced coaches, the intensive training takes at least 1 to 2 years to complete.

Whether you are a complete beginner or elite competitor, when you see a Swim Smooth Coach you can be assured you are seeing a talented highly trained individual with the very best coaching methods at their disposal.

Congratulations Mike, Linda and Gayle!
