Swimming Academy

As an experienced swimmer, you’ll have the opportunity to compete at national level. You’ll develop your abilities through a combination of conditioning, technique training and analysis.

What to expect

Swimmers may access up to six hours per week of swimming activities, including pool sessions, sessions focusing on technique, and dry side training. We will introduce swimmers to new forms of training, such as strength and conditioning and technique analysis.

Swimmers would normally compete for a club outside college although there will be opportunity to represent the College at the Association of Colleges Sport South West Gala. This may then lead to selection for the region at the AoC National Championships. We make full use of Truro Leisure Centre hosting a number of home galas, building links with other clubs and colleges.

Triathletes are welcome to join in the sessions in conjunction with their land based training through the Elite Academy.
