Swimming

In swimming perhaps more than in other sports, specific training sessions or training camps can be seen as an indispensable parallel to daily training. The spread of competitions over the season requires regular, precise adjustments in the intensity of preparation. Moreover, because swimming excellence is due to usually solitary repetition and effort, changes of location and training camp can break up the monotony of daily training.

A training camp for each phase of the season :

> Pre-season:

The aim of these pre-season preparation camp, be they in the pool or in open water, is to develop overall endurance and the other basic qualities of the swimmer: speed, strength, coordination, suppleness etc. In most cases, classic conditioning work and dry exercises will be combined with diving, entry and turning work, techniques that will allow precious hundredths of seconds to be gained in competition.

> During the season:

To avoid going under when THE major competition comes into view, we propose a high-intensity training camp. Every aspect of techinque can be dealt with during this fine-tuning period, including mental race preparation, since it is right from the outset that defeat or victory is decided, especially in sprints. If you are preparing a relay competition, it is also an opportunity to work on passing the relay to the next swimmer.

> After the season :

A training camp enables swimmers to recuperate and is a reward for all the previous work. The younger swimmers in your club, for instance, could be given an unforgettable end-of-year week.
