Whether you're a coach looking to build or supplement your program or a swimmer seeking to improve your technique and time, you'll benefit from swim coaching legend Bill Sweetenham's proven methods for improving performance in the backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, freestyle, and individual medley.

Sweetenham has spent his career developing world-class swimmers--first for Australia, then for Hong Kong, and now for Great Britain. He engineered Australia's success at four Olympic Games and five Commonwealth Games and has coached 63 top swimmers in international competitions to 27 Olympic and World Championship medals. Now, through "Championship Swim Training," he and coauthor John Atkinson, a former national team coach in Australia and current national youth coach with British Swimming, provide the detailed plans and strategies to help all swimmers maximize their swimming potential.

Beginning with Sweetenham's five golden rules for swimming that apply to all swimmers--regardless of their background--"Championship Swim Training" is divided into two parts.

Part I, Technique Drills and Sets, deals with training zones and benchmark sets so critical to effective training and goal setting. Also included is a series of drill progressions and checklists that can be applied to each stroke and the individual medley. These progressions will help pinpoint stroke deficiencies and improve stroke technique as well as sculling, starts, turns, finishes, and kick and pull training. The checklists give swimmers and coaches tips for training and competition.

Part II, Workouts and Programs, is full of information for coaches to plan the long-term development of juniors through masters swimmers. Sample training sets are provided and can be customized to suit the level of that swimmer or squad. Part II also covers the critical tapering phase to get swimmers ready for competition and provides detailed racing strategies. Dryland conditioning suggestions help swimmers train all year round, whether in or out of the water. And no world-class coaching book would be complete without a chapter on how to completely and objectively evaluate your training program.

"Championship Swim Training" provides a complete roadmap for coaches and swimmers who want to follow a systematic and proven way to record-breaking times!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of training info but not much technique 14. Oktober 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Lots and lots of information if you're planning your season's training or you're coaching a team. There are drills for all the strokes, explanations of training zones, example workouts, and information on all aspects of swimming competitively (starts, turns, tactics, tapering,...).
What this book doesn't have, which is reflected in the title, is in depth descriptions of the intricacies of the strokes. If you want lots of that, choose another book. If you know how the strokes are performed but want some guidance on your training, this would be a good addition to your library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Championship Swim Training 3. August 2005
Von G. K. Clark - Veröffentlicht auf
As a rookie coach I have found this publication invaluable. Although aimed at the 'top end' swimmer, with a little adjustment the lesson plans can be adapted to swimmers of any level. The drills are well laid out in a logical progression that benefits development of both the coach and the swimmer.

Bill Sweetenham shows an incedible understanding of the art and science of swimming and has managed to bring both aspects together in a clear and concise manual, can't recommend it highly enough

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must have for coaches. 25. Dezember 2010
Von Josh - Veröffentlicht auf
I've been coaching for 8+ years at both club and high school swimming. I minored in coaching and have an aquatics emphasis on my B.S. Degree. I have read every book and watched every video I could get my hands on while coming up the coaching ranks. This book is one of my top 5 and is a must have. I especially like the Progressions when it comes to using drills to work on swimming technique. It is very detailed when it comes to training and creating workouts. It even has a good chapter on dry land and stretching for swimming. The only thing I would have liked was some info on weight/strength training in relation to swimming. It's a book for coaches and competitive swimmers and I can't recommend it strongly enough.

I am a swim coach for Triathletes. This book certainly expanded my ability to refine my coaching and the program I have set up for them. Even though this book is not specifically for Triathletes, the information can me tailored to any swim program. Great asset to my swim books!
