ALL SQUADS: Strength and Conditioning for Swimmers

Strength and Conditioning
for swimmers aged 12 and over.

Open to all swimmers, in all squads, aged 12 and over – based on year of birth, age as of 31st December 2020

Dryland training is an integral part of an athlete’s development and success in the water. Not only is strength and conditioning key to injury prevention, but it will allow swimmers to develop new sources of power and speed on land, which they can then tap into in the water – leading to more efficient and powerful swimming.

Places are limited to the first 20 athletes to book.

Five weeks of S&C for swimmers on Saturday 22nd February; 29th February; 7th March; 14th March and 21st March. Cost €50 payable via EPP.

Led by specialist youth athletic coach,
Shane Fitzgibbon

Our next course starts on Saturday 22nd February
in Kilcornan Hall from 7:40am to 8:45am.

Email Christine at to register.

*Athletes will have exercises to practice in between S&C sessions to help them continue to improve.
