Are you a triathlete or open water swimmer who is looking to improve your front crawl? At Do3 Coaching we offer a detailed swim analysis and stroke correction service where we can look at your stroke from all angles in high definition before taking you through the drills you should do to improve any issues identified. This really is the gold standard in stroke correction and perfect for anyone who is serious about improving their front crawl.

First of all we will get you into the pool and after swimming a few lengths to warm up, we will film you. You will be filmed from all angles including directly above (looking down) and underneath the water. Once the filming is done, we will then spend time with you on poolside going through the recorded footage. This part of the process is hugely valuable as it allows us to see in fine detail what is happening with your stroke. During the review, we will analyse your stroke using slow-motion software and annotate areas for development. We will show you clips of elite swimmers side-by-side so you can see clearly the difference between your stoke and the worlds best swimmers. Finally, we will show you recordings of the drills that you should work on. These drills will be specific to you and your stroke meaning you will go away with no doubt what you should be working on to improve. The whole analysis element of the session is recorded onto a DVD for you to take away and watch at home.
We currently use two venues for our swim analysis and stroke correction sessions. Most sessions are held at Sibford Ferris School, Sibford Ferris, Oxfordshire OX15 5QL but we have also now added a single weekly session on Wednesdays from 8:30pm at Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre. Newbold Terrace E, Leamington Spa CV32 4EW. Both pools are 25m and are clean and quiet. Both also have changing and showering facilities and plenty of parking.
*When attending Sibford Ferris School please use the entrance near to the cricket pitch off Hook Norton Road.
All you need to bring is your usual swimming gear such as your costume, goggles and hat (if you wear one). It is also worth bringing an extra towel or robe to put over you poolside while we go through the video review process. If you have any training aids such as pull buoys, fins etc then bring them so the coach can look at what you have. In line with the Swim Smooth methodology we advise the use of certain products to help you with your drills. These items are tried and tested and will be available at a discounted rate following your session. Note: You may not need all of these and there is no obligation to buy. The coach will discuss this with you. The recommended items are:
