And if you fancy improving your swimming technique before the season kicks off Jim Vance will be holding two swim seminars including video analysis at Hampton Pool on SAT 16th April. This clinic is designed for swimmers, triathletes and coaches, as an opportunity to learn and understand the principles of triathlon swimming and apply this directly to athletes.

One is full-service with information directly for the participating athlete, who would like to be videoed in the water. The other is for athletes or coaches who are not interested in getting in the water and have footage taken of them swimming but desire to learn the principles of triathlon swimming and how to apply them to athletes.

There will be 2 sessions to choose from on Saturday 16th April.
