A development partner at people coaching company Courageous Success, has worked with Grantham Swimming Club’s young team to achieve some remarkable results.

Taking a holistic approach to swim training and using positivity tools and techniques, Sam Farkas developed bespoke workshops to improve the performance, confidence and self-belief in young swimmers aged between 10 and 12.

The swimmers loved the workshops and all saw fantastic progression in their swimming performance, including improving individual swim times varying between 13 to 19 seconds which resulted in them achieving more than 150 personal best times and breaking nine club records

The team were originally in the County One squad but have now been promoted to a newly-formed performance squad called Junior Midlands for next year.

Grantham Swimming Club head coach Maciej Rakowski said: “The workshops were very helpful in equipping young swimmers with the mental skills needed in a performance environment.

“I could see a massive difference, not only in their swimming results, but most importantly I could see a difference in such vital skills as responsibility, confidence, motivation and goal setting, to name but a few.”
