Swim Coaching

Beginner to Channel Swimmer

At Streamline Swims we pride ourselves on providing a friendly, high quality service at a fair price. We offer expert individual or small-group coaching for adults.  With swim technique analysis, the latest drills and feedback these personally tailored sessions are ideal for beginners, triathletes and open water swimmers of all abilities and will transform your swimming. Whether you are looking to learn to swim front crawl, improve your stroke, get ready for your first race or channel swim, Mike and Sarah will help you develop your efficiency, technique, and speed and provide support and guidance to help achieve your goals.

We do offer 121 sessions for children able to swim a minimum of 100m, any stroke. Due to Covid restrictions child sessions have to be booked when there is a family swim session taking place.

I had three 121 lessons with Lido Mike and it dramatically improved my technique. I felt completely at ease, there was no judgement, just a willingness to get me to the best of my ability within the time frame available. Cannot recommend enough and will be seeking out group lessons to continue improvement in the future. Anneka Dew

I’m not usually quick to recommend people, but on this occasion I can happily do so – I thoroughly recommend Mike – he’s very good. Only a couple of lessons with him made a huge difference to my front crawl. I couldn’t do half a length of the Lido before my first lesson. Four weeks later (after 3 lido lessons and 1 open water session) I managed the 1500m in open water in the London triathlon. This was all down to Mike sorting out my breathing (in a very short space of time). Not only is Mike a really nice bloke and a good teacher his rates are affordable too.” Nigel Hood 

“I completed my first Olympic Tri today. I found the 3 sessions so helpful….such a confidence booster. I would recommend your coaching to anyone.” Hannah Biscombe 

Had three lessons with Mike/Sarah and made the most amazing difference, cannot recommend highly enough. Vicki Prout

“Thanks Mike for the lesson yesterday. Great to have someone tell me where I am going right and where I am going wrong. Good to have something new to practice in the pool. Highly recommended” Tim Sutton

Video Analysis 

Specialist Coaching with Video Analysis at Brockwell Lido.
In conjunction with our expert coaching, Streamline Swims also offers video analysis – an excellent tool for those wishing to implement long-term improvements and achieve their swimming goals. Using HD video analysis technology, we can clearly evaluate each swimmer’s stroke/technique, providing them with a visual reference point from which to work.

Delux Video package: One-to-one, 60-minute session; includes swim session, video analysis above and below the waterline, with review of footage and detailed technique analysis and feedback and hot drink (Brockwell Lido only), in the comfort of the award winning Lido Cafe or at Jags Sports Club: £98 (memory stick included)

“I went back to Streamline swims for a video analysis having been a client at the start of my OW swimming journey a few years ago. I knew I would get targeted and constructive advice to improve my stroke and with 3 weeks until the Isoman middle (5.6k swim, 50k bike, 21k run) I didn’t want my swim section to leave me in pain. Mike’s video and subsequent analysis suggested 3 things to focus on and some good drills and within just 1 week I am swimming faster and better still pain free. 100% recommend this service especially to swimmers who feel they have plateaued and want to get that little bit faster or just enjoy their swim again” Lois Barmby, Windrush Triathlon Club 2015

Long Distance Swim Training Programmes

We provide personalised swim training programmes for swimmers undertaking 5k plus swims. Plans are designed in consultation with the swimmer to ensure they are tailored to meet individual needs and goals.

“I’ve dramatically improved my front crawl through working on my technique and fitness with Mike. I am now 15 seconds faster over 100m and swimming feels smooth, fluid and enjoyable. Mike and Sarah really care and it has been fun as well as hard work.” Lucy July 2019

“I could not have achieved my goal of completing and English Channel Swim without the dedicated coaching provided by Mike at Streamline Swims. He corrected my technique, improved my fitness and built my confidence as a marathon swimmer through pool sessions, cross training and accompanying me on progressively longer open water swims. His commitment to my challenge was amazing, often going beyond what I would have expected. His support on the pilot boat will never be forgotten. Mike’s passion for swimming and the overall well being of the athlete is what makes his approach special. Thank you Mike !!!” Simon October 2014
