You can see a full list of 2020 SFAM Training Pools here! Training with friends can be more fun, help you stay motivated and push yourself that little bit harder! Take a look to see if there is a pool near you to join one of our SFAM training groups!

No pool near you? No worries! Remember that you can download the weekly training programme from your SFAM dashboard, just click “Training Programmes” and select your desired week and format!
We have a host of super handy demonstration videos, showing you how to perform drills, kicks and stroke’s! Check out our youtube playlist here!

Like last year, we are continuing our support to Temple Street Children’s Hospital Foundation, with 10% of all SFAM 2020 registration fees going to Temple Street and the awesome, lifesaving work that they do! SFAM participants are also welcome to further their fundraising efforts by campaigning themselves.
