Family Swim Holiday Mallorca
After 14 years of successful Family Swim Holidays, we are proud to announce our 2019 Holiday Programme. The Family Swim Holidays 2019 will take place at the fabulous world renowned BEST Centre, in the beautiful town of Colònia 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). The holiday will cater for all levels of swimmer from club swimmer to international standard.
The centrepiece of The BEST Centre is our outdoor Olympic-sized training pool. The 10 lane, 50m pool (50m x 25m x 2m) is a free-standing pool from Astra, who supply the competition pools for the FINA world championships.
We know that a well equipped gym is essential for a successful training camp, so we have an on-site gym fully equipped and dedicated to swimming. We also have two large areas suitable for land work, and plenty of space around the pool for stretching. Our state of the art facilities at The BEST Centre attract individuals and teams from across the world. More specifically, we have welcomed 1000s of different swimming, water polo, triathlon and synchronised swimming teams from 38 countries worldwide. The combination of our facilities and the peacefulness of Colònia make for the perfect training camp – good enough for the very BEST!
WHAT TO EXPECT
“Our goal for each athlete is to have fun, learn, meet new friends, and take a great attitude about their sport back to his or her home club.”
The swim holiday will be run by British Olympic swimmers and former British record holders as well as ASA qualified coaches. The holiday will comprise of 9 x 2 hour swimming sessions for 7 day holidays and 13 x 2 hour swim sessions for the 10 day holiday, accompanied by dry land and stretching exercises.
The focus will be on:
» Technique work.
» Starts and turns.
» And having the most fun you can possibly have in a week of swimming.
When the children are training, parents are free to do their own thing and explore some of the beautiful sights of the island, or sit in the sun and watch your children train. Parents will also have the opportunity to use the pool and the gym, free of charge whilst the kids train!
Although this is a swim holiday, we offer so much more! As you can see on the itineraries, outside of training we have a fun-filled schedule with lots of fun activities, along with plenty of free time to relax as a family.
WHAT TO BRING
All swimmers will need to bring fins and snorkel. Either bring your own if you have it, or please order your kit from us and it will be waiting for you on your arrival. We recommend and sell Finis Zoomers or Z2, and Finis snorkels. We have plenty of kick boards and pull buoys so there is no need to bring them. Bring your goggles (we have a range of mirrored and tinted goggles for sale at the pool), swimsuits, caps and plenty of waterproof, high protection sunscreen at FACTOR 50.
