We hope that you have enjoyed the festive break and are hitting 2020 with a refreshed mind! At this time of year, people often look for a new years resolution, the next diet, intense fitness routine or have the general feeling of “New Year, New Me”! We all know it doesn’t happen over night and let’s just take a minute to appreciate the 2019 you! We all deserve a break from routine at Christmas time and whether you’re taking part in the challenge to improve your fitness, mental well-being or technique, the key is to enjoy your time in the water and stay consistent!
Bookings for our 1st block of technique clinics will open this Monday at 9am! These clinics are a great kick starter to your challenge, focusing on technique. Clinics are led by International and Olympic swimmers, providing the perfect opportunity to get top tips to take you through the challenge. Clinic spaces are free of charge but only open to those who have booked a 2020 event. Spaces book up FAST, so be sure to set your alarms to claim your space on Monday! We have three blocks of clinics, you can see clinic dates and book a space on a clinic from within your SFAM dashboard by clicking “SFAM clinics”.
SFAM training for most of our participating pools kicks off at the end of January. Sessions begin short and skills based, with each week gradually building in intensity and distance, always keeping technique as the primary focus! You can find up to date SFAM training schedules for our participating pools here!
Can’t see your local pool? No worries! The training programme is laid out in an easy to follow manner with session content, drill descriptions and video demos included. Each week is available to download from your SFAM dashboard from January 13th. If there isn’t a pool that suits you, grab a friend and follow the programme in your own time, picking an event venue that suits.
Most 2020 pools are now confirmed (more info here), however further pools may still be added in the coming weeks. As a New Year’s gift, we have extended the Early Bird Discount to January 6th, so if you haven’t booked an event yet, do so before midnight Monday to avail of the €25 event fee!
