CHEST CRAWL | weekend workshop | Starts Sat 20 Nov. 15.00 p.m.
Course period 20 Nov – 21 Nov 15:00 – 18:00
This two-day workshop is suitable for anyone who can swim and/or float with their face in the water and who would like to learn how to swim a calm, flowing and sustained front crawl. The workshop takes place on two afternoons of 3 hours each, in Driebergen, and has the same content as our normal 6-week courses (6 hours in total). This is ideal for people who want to complete an intensive course in a short time, or for people who cannot participate on a fixed evening per week due to their work during the year. We don't swim for 3 hours in a row, there is also theory, and we have a break in the middle. You don't need to be in good shape to participate, we work on the technique and always get up in between.
You may be:
- a swimmer with no experience with the front crawl
- a front crawler who wants to learn to swim more efficiently.
- a triathlete eager to learn to swim in the leg action with less effort.
You may also be a swimmer who wants to change his current swimming style due to back or joint problems. This course is suitable for all levels.
The course will guide you through all the exercises for the front crawl, starting with the Shaw Method glide, followed by the leg action, rotation, arm movement and finally breathing.
During the workshop you will discover how to:
- experience the natural buoyancy of your body
- drastically reduce the amount of effort you exert during your swim
- can use the rotation of your body to increase your streamlining
- recognize the importance of preparing for a movement.
During this workshop you will alternate between swimming and theory lessons, where we practice the swimming movements on dry land and explain why we choose this technique. You don't need to be in good shape, we build up the stroke step by step from the beginning and we always swim small pieces. You can build up your condition yourself after this day. At the end of the workshop you will have learned all the steps with which you can swim the entire stroke, but this is of course not automated yet. You can come back for this later to further refine the battle in the level 2 crawl course. Afterwards you will receive all the exercises on video so that you can practice yourself.
Maximum number of participants: 8 people per teacher
