Tri England partner with Swim Smooth for OW days

Triathlon England and Swim Smooth launch open-water swimming training days

Triathlon England have teamed up with Swim Smooth Ltd to deliver a series of open water novice sessions this summer. These new training days are designed to give triathletes of all abilities specialist open water swim training from world renowned Swim Smooth Accredited Coaches.

Morgan Williams, National Development Manager for Triathlon England said: “Swim Smooth is fast becoming the gold standard in coaching for the freestyle stroke and open water swimming. They are already the Swim Coaching Consultants to our current coach education programme; therefore it was a natural decision for Triathlon England to choose Swim Smooth to deliver a series of specialist training days across England.”

Triathlon England, through a series of new relationships, are trying to increase participation in the sport as Morgan went on to explain: “We hope working with Swim Smooth will create extra opportunities for members of the public to access high quality coaching and to help them prepare for their next triathlon challenge”

Paul Newsome, the founder and head coach of Swim Smooth Ltd said: ” This partnership is a natural extension of the coach education work we’ve been doing with British Triathlon coaching at levels 1, 2 and 3 since 2010, and we’re confident that this will be another very successful relationship for all parties.”

Take up for this new initiative is already proving to be very popular and the provisional nine dates planned across the UK starting in Worcester on 2 June 2013 are expected to expand due to this high demand.
