Swimming is the most technical and feared discipline within triathlon. Saying this, there are no ‘dark-arts’ related to mastering and becoming more proficient at it. Correct coaching not only improves confidence and basic technique in those less experienced, but can also tweak the stroke of those more experienced to raise performance.
Craven complete coaching offers both pool and open-water based sessions. We first concentrate on basic skills and technique to allow improved efficiency before developing performance and speed.
- Indoor – Colwyn Bay Leisure centre, Colwyn Bay

Indoor Pool Courses:
We offer a variety of courses to help improve the technique and skills needed to gain efficiency and increased confidence and/or speed.
Our friendly coaches are also swimming teachers, and instruct in groups of 1 (coach) to 4 (swimmers) per lane so you get a personalised and friendly experience in a safe environmental.

Open Water Courses:
Open-water course includes a mixture of theory and practical and can be aimed at either a novice (complete newbies) or improver (wanting to improve and move up the pack) levels.
You will come away with knowledge of safe open water swimming as well as practical skills that increase confidence and performance. Small groups with no more than 10 per group allow a personalised approach where we can still give some 1-2-1 advice.
What’s more, we also provide a hot drink and something to eat.
