WHAT WE OFFER
Bringing personalized coaching to every swimmer.
When it comes to swim coaching, we believe there is no blanket technique or "one size fits all" solution to your challenges. Each individual requires specific attention to their unique body type, mental relationship with the water, physical strength, and form styles that affect the way they swim.
Let us help you achieve your swim goals — even if you don't quite know what they are yet.
FROM SWIMMERS LIKE YOU
Coach Sidney improved my swim pace from 2:45 min/100 yards to 1:45 min/100 yards in less than 3 months. She accomplished it by providing focused individual attention to my swim technique and systematically correcting all the deficiencies of my strokes and my swim posture. Sidney critically assessed the progress from lesson to lesson and attentively monitored statistics of my swims on Strava. She invited me to swim in the open water with her group when I was ready to transfer her instructions to ocean swimming. I highly recommend Sidney as a coach at any level from a beginner to an aspiring pro.
