For nearly two decades Tom has been studying and applying his knowledge of performance psychology all over the world through various different sports. Adam has worked with Tom for a number of years and really engages with his unique mentality towards performing and winning. Tom has a way of engaging everyone that he speaks to so you feel like you are on the edge of your seat with his revolutionary ideas of how swimmers can unlock their minds to help them get the most out of the pool.
There will also be a number of support staff including team managers and media representatives.
Breaststroke is a highly technical stroke. From the dive, to your fingertips touching the wall, perfecting your technique is critical to success in the pool. Adam's stroke is totally unique, and he believes this is a major key to his success. The pool session consists of two parts: "free swimming" focussing entirely on the stroke, will be led by Adam. Breaststroke is all about efficiency, in the second pool station Ed will be taking you through how to make the most power out of every stroke and maximising your distance per stroke.
The Gym session will be led by Rob. Gym work is vital to a swimming programme and as the expert in swimming specific gym work Rob can offer unique insights. Rob has been Adam's gym coach for over four years and has been key to his success over recent years.
Racing Edge Station
The Racing Edge Station will be led by Tom. This station will be focused around how swimmers transition from good to great, working on the finer details that are always forgotten but sometimes the most critical. One of Adam's favourite quotes is "the mind is the athlete, the body simply the means". Tom will be helping swimmers to master their minds to get the most out of their performances.
Parent Support Station
As a swimming parent, you want your child to be the best they can be but it's often hard to find the right balance between wanting to help your swimmers achieve their best results but ensuring they are having the best experience possible on their swimming journey. Whilst the swimmers are at the Racing Edge Station, the parents of those swimmers are welcome to attend this station where Kev will be running a workshop and open Q&A to support you on your swimming journey as a swimming parent.
Presentation and Q&A
To round off the day Adam will be giving a presentation around his journey through swimming, the lessons he has learnt, how he has managed to retain unparalleled levels of success for so long and all about his pursuit of becoming Better Than Yesterday.
