Crawl / Freestyle swimming course for beginners

Our intensive and compact weekend front crawl / freestyle swimming course is ideal to learn the front crawl swimming technique quickly. On this swimming course, all the important aspects of learning the front crawl swimming stroke are taught using an efficient and logically structured method. Step by step, participants learn the individual elements of the front crawl / freestyle technique (water position, kick, body rotation, arm stroke, breathing, rhythm). This way we can guarantee our participants that they learn an efficient swimming technique in a short time. In the course, in addition to teaching the front crawl / freestyle swimming technique, the theory behind this swimming stroke also plays an important role. Thanks to the theoretical units, the learning process is supplemented and the broader knowledge of swimming is deepened. This method, which was developed over many years of experience, includes special exercises through which the elements of front crawl / freestyle swimming are identified and trained in isolation. The swimming course course ends with a video analysis of each individual swimmer and triathlete. Based on this swim technique analysis, the participants recognise their potential for improvement and can develop this further in their personal practice.
