The holidays will take place in the beautiful town of Colonia Sant Jordi on the southern tip of Mallorca where you will stay just minutes from some of Europe’s most stunning beaches.

The swim holiday is designed for swimmers aged 6-18 years old who are used to training regularly with a swim team (please email us if you have any questions). While the children are swimming, parents can relax on the beach or take in some of the beautiful sights on the island. The holiday will cater for all levels of swimmer from club swimmer to international standard.

The holiday will comprise of 9 x 2 hour swimming sessions for 7 day holidays and 14 x 2 hour swim sessions for the 10 day holiday, accompanied by dry land and stretching exercises. The swim holiday will be run by British Olympic swimmers and former British record holders as well as ASA qualified coaches. The focus will be on technique work, kicking, starts and turns, breakouts, and having the most fun you can possibly have in a week of swimming.
