Mark Foster to run half term swimming camps

28 March 2014

One of Britain’s most successful swimmers of all time, six-time world champion Mark Foster, will be inspiring the next generation of swimmers in a number of one-day swim camps throughout the country this May half term.

Mark has drawn together a selection of some of the most experienced and knowledgeable swimmers, teachers and coaches including Katy Sexton MBE, Former World and Commonwealth champion & double Olympian, to deliver the most up to date training drills, techniques and methods to help young swimmers achieve their potential.

These one-day swim camps are designed to give a wide range of young swimmers the chance to dramatically improve their strokes, speed, endurance and fitness enabling them to potentially achieve champion level performances.

Book your child's place at one of Mark Foster's half term camps at www.mfsa.co.uk

The Mark Foster Swimming Academy is suited to young swimmers between the ages of 11 and 18 who either have achieved the ASA Learn to Swim Level 7 framework or are currently swimming competitively at a club, regional or national level.

Due to the high coach to swimmer ratio which ensures each participant receives the attention they need to make a real difference to their swimming development, there are only 60 places available at each camp, so make sure bookings are made early to avoid disappointment.

The initiative from Mark Foster has already inspired more than 200 children to achieve the best level of swimming they can, using fun and informative teaching techniques to engage both young swimmers and their parents, who are also invited to come along and observe.

After receiving backing from the ASA for this initiative, Mark says: “I’m excited to be teaming up with the ASA to help find and inspire the next generation of swimmers. I’ve put together a team of some of the most knowledgeable people in sport to help me cram the day with the most up to date techniques, drills and methods available to swimmers so they can be the best they can be”.
