Basic Breaststroke Workshop

Get to grips with breaststroke on Sundays in September from 6pm to 6:45pm

This workshop is for athletes in Skills and Development Squads – but specifically for those who need some extra help mastering legal breaststroke kicks and the timing of this competitive stroke.

Since pools have reopened, lessons and swim teachers are booked out. We have been very lucky to find a little corner of our pool to help our swimmers – so make the most of this opportunity!

Register your interest before this Friday 3rd September and we will confirm viability, price and dates this Saturday. Dates to be confirmed: September 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th
