If you've been following Swim Smooth for a while you'll know that coach education is a big passion of ours - one of our key goals as a company is to spread the news far and wide about how coaches can raise their game.
We thought we'd share with you a few shots from the training course and let you know what we're up to:

We hope you're having a great time swimming wherever you are in the world - let us know what you are up to and share some pictures in your neck of the woods!
