Testimonials from 2019 Thredbo Swim Camp

The camp was a great opportunity to focus on all strokes. I liked the mix of drills, the use of the tempo trainer, as well as the tough sessions. It was nice to get to know people from other clubs. Amber (NNS)

What was good – great coaching, comfortable accommodation and delicious food. I thought the opportunity to get individual feedback from the filming session was especially good. Annette (NTN)

 

Can’t praise this swim camp enough. The coaching was of the highest standard, covering all strokes in a friendly, non-threatening environment. We were challenged to try new equipment and techniques and the video analysis was particularly useful. Pam (NTN)

The accommodation was fabulous. The rooms we shared were more that acceptable and we had large areas to lounge around chatting and getting to know each other better. The food was exceptional and plenty. The coaching was super, efficient and well thought out. All abilities were catered for. All strokes were covered, from drills, skills to the complete stroke. The opportunity to be filmed and get feedback about your stroke was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their stroke.  Sharon (NPM)
