    Transition smoothly from breaststroke to front crawl with our Breaststroke to Front Crawl Workshop. This 45-minute session is specially designed for swimmers who mainly swim breaststroke or basic front crawl and are looking to learn or improve their front crawl.

    Whether you’re aiming for more speed in the water or seeking a new challenge, this workshop will provide the guidance and techniques you need to make the switch effectively.

    What You Will Learn

    1. Technique Transition: Understand the key differences between breaststroke and front crawl and how to adapt your swimming style accordingly.
    2. Front Crawl Fundamentals: Learn the basics of front crawl, including proper arm strokes, leg kicks, breathing techniques, and body positioning.
    3. Efficiency and Speed: Learn how to swim front crawl more efficiently to conserve energy and increase speed.
    4. Personalised Feedback: Receive tailored advice and corrections to refine your technique and build confidence.

    Who Should Attend? This workshop is ideal for swimmers who are comfortable with breaststroke but want to enhance their swimming repertoire with front crawl. It is perfect for those looking to improve their speed, participate in triathlons, or simply enjoy a new swimming style.
