10 Celsius & 70km/h wind in Geneva - makes one want to go to some sunny, warm place... Escape to South Africa for some cycling & running with Annchen Clarke (Kona World Championships finisher) and Bram Peereboom(MTB champ) - these two make the most amazing training camps! Top-notch coaching, assured security (in SA!) and a lot of extra attention: sharing with us a bit of their South African dolce vita (wine, wine and more wine!) <3 Dankie Annchen & Bram

This was a positive experience for Kate. She returned to the car with a big smile on her face. She felt like she learned more than what was on the agenda for the clinic and enjoyed that facilitators were able to personalize the experience for her while she was there. I got an earful about the experience on the way home and to be honest I didn’t understand much of it and just nodded my head like I totally got it. But she was happy.

It was a great way for my swimmer to engage with a coach. Our team has been pretty distant during this experience due to furloughs and it was great for her to engage with a coach.

This clinic offers easily understandable techniques and fun drills to help you improve on your stroke. The instructors were all very helpful and understandable when teaching a drill or part of the stroke. The flip turn drills have probably helped me the most!

In-depth and individual instruction from championship swimmers! Your swimmer will gain confidence and experience while participating in a fun-filled curriculum. Do not wait…these clinics are worth twice the price!! During the butterfly instruction, the direction to more fully engage his core brought immediate results to his swimming. In the breaststroke instruction, the narrow kick drill was productive in improving his overall breaststroke performance. Keep up the great work. These kids really gain from interacting with competitive swimmers outside their normal routine.
