SWIMMING

Sport doesn’t develop character… it reveals character.

The Swim Programme will take place in the heated, outdoor Olympic pool at the BEST Centre.

Whatever your level, our coaches will work with you help you to meet your swimming goals.  We have up to 10 swim sessions per week and gym and land work every day.  Whether you are club, county, or national level, you are welcome in our swim programme.  If you have the character to work hard, support your team mates, focus on your athletic and academic performance and want to commit to improving yourself, we want to hear from you.

All training sessions will be planned alongside your education to maximise your chances of academic and sporting success.

The head coach will set the programme to meet your individual needs as well as those of the team.  You will compete at competitions in Mallorca and mainland Spain and, with the agreement of the head coach, we encourage you also to compete in competitions in your home country.

One of the great advantages of training at the BEST Centre is the large number of swim teams that visit for their training camps.  Throughout the year, there will be club teams and national teams using the pool, including some of the most successful swimmers and coaches in the world.  You will have the chance to see these athletes train and talk with them about how they have achieved their success.  These teams often travel with sports scientists including bio mechanists, nutritionists, strength and conditioning experts and sports psychologists.  As a student of sport, you have a golden opportunity to ask questions of the sports science community at the cutting edge of performance sport in the world today.
