The “Test Swim” would be used by an athlete who already knows how to swim and thinks they want to work with Winning Swimming to improve their swim. The session is scheduled for an hour and consists of: introductory paperwork, discussing goals and what the athlete wants to get out of working on their stroke, a tour of the swim lab, a swim in the stationary pool, and a discussion of the experience and where to go from there.
The service is like a trial run; an opportunity for the swimmer to swim in the pool and to get to know Coach Caron’s coaching style and for the coach to take a look at where the athlete is with their stroke. After the “Test Swim”, Coach Caron will let the athlete know whether she can help them reach their goals and, if the athlete decides Winning Swimming is the place for them to improve, we discuss service options like private coaching, pool rentals, video assessments, etc.

What our Swimmers are saying:
“As a longtime competitive swimmer, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was impressed by the facility and Coach Caron’s ability to quickly focus in on my goals. I only did the initial “swim test” but plan on going back for more in-depth coaching and technique tips. I’m confident Coach Caron will be able to help me break some not-so-helpful habits, and make me a more efficient swimmer.” Laurie E.
“My first test swim with Winning Swimming exceeded my expectations. Coach Caron listened to my concerns, observed my form, and within minutes she corrected some issues with my swimming in a friendly, helpful manner. It was a very productive evaluation, and I highly recommend Winning Swimming’s services.” Dave L.
“Our daughter recently had a test swim session with Coach Caron. She enjoyed swimming in the pool and thought that Coach Caron was “chill” and positive. She also appreciated Coach Caron’s insightful feedback on her strokes. She is excited about working with Coach Caron 1:1 over the next few months in preparation for her high school and club seasons. ” J&W
