Over the 3 days the coaches on the course will be getting a deep-dive into everything Swim Smooth from best practise video analysis and stroke correction, to cutting edge squad training methods for distance swimmers (and triathletes) and perfecting critical open water skills.
It will be insightful, inspiring and fun in equal measure - watch our for posts from the course on our usual social media sites! Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Announcing Chris Bagg - Certified Swim Smooth Coach
Swim Smooth are extremely proud to announce our certification of Chris Bagg based here at Nike World Headquarters:
Whenever people ask me what I do for a living, I say "I'm a P.E. teacher for adults." The answer often elicits a laugh (and usually further inquiry), but I think it's the right answer. When I was in high school, I loved gym class (strange, I know). Gym offered a respite from the stresses of my day, a chance to relax, compete, have fun, and maybe even improve my fitness. Was I cool? No—being the teacher's pet in P.E. will not endear you to your fellow teenagers. Did it help keep me sane? Certainly.
