You’ll be doing 2-3 swims per day varying in length from 1km to 3km. The focus of the week is on improving your swimming with lots of feedback, coaching and filming.
The minimum level of swimming required to attend this camp is to comfortably swim 1km in 25 mins or faster. We have a high coach-to-swimmer ratio so we’re able to cater for all levels of swimmers provided you meet the minimum requirement above. This camp is for swimmers and triathletes who would are looking to improve their speed, technique and are keen to have an amazing 6 days of swimming in Noosa!
Yes! Most days there is time between sessions and meals to relax at the beach, go shopping or simply relax. You’ll also have time to run or ride if you are looking to do some more training while you are there. We often hear campers talk about how much they enjoy the combination of swimming and time to relax.
We start at 2.30pm on the first day so depending on where you are flying from it can be easier to arrive the day before. The closest airport is Maroochydore (Sunshine Coast Airport) and is 25 mins from Noosa. Brisbane Airport is the closest International airport and is a 2-hour drive from Noosa. Check-in is from 2pm so you’ll be able to di this prior to starting. The camp finishes after the Noosa Swim and we have arranged a late checkout of 12pm so you can race and then come back and shower before going out to lunch with the group before you say your goodbye’s. To book an extra night you just need to contact Hotel Laguna directly at [email protected] and let them know you are with the Effortless Swimming group. Rates are $290/night for 1-bdrm and $210/night for studio rooms.
Because many of the swims will be directly out front of the hotel and at the beach there is no ‘camp-only’ option for this camp as we require everyone to be in the one place for logistics.
There will be a minimum of four Effortless Swimming coaches at the Noosa camp. Brenton Ford (Head Coach at Effortless Swimming) will be at the camp alongside three other experienced Effortless Swimming coaches.
This is a small group camp with a maximum of 16 swimmers with at least one coach to every four swimmers. You will get a lot of underwater filming and analysis, personal feedback and coaching from all coaches on camp. This camp is about YOU improving your swimming in paradise.
