Join Olympic Coach Russ Barber on Friday April 18th at Chapeltown Swimming Pool for the Pathway to Gold Swim Clinic
The best swimmers in the world all have one thing in common – fantastic technique. Learning to move through the water with efficiency and skill is the most important tool that we can give our young swimmers, and it gives them a fantastic foundation to their swimming career.
Coach Russ Barber will teach the swimmers the drills and skills that have helped his swimmers to over 250 National medals, 100 GB caps, and three Olympic representations. He will be assisted by a GB International swimmer, who will demonstrate the drills, and also speak to the swimmers about their own journey giving them a first-hand insight into what it takes to reach the top.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to learn from one of the best…see you there
