Masters Development Day went Swimmingly!

On 27th March Swim England East Region held a development day for our Masters swimmers at Oundle Sports Centre. Presentations included; How to Deal with Nerves and Mental Race Preparation (Emma Wood, Cognitive Hypnotherapist and trainee Sport Psychologist); Injury Prevention through Strength and Conditioning Exercises (Lawrence Palmer, Strength and Conditioning Coach and Masters 50m Breaststroke World Record Holder); and 50m Training/ Competing and Useful Drills (David Rayner, Swimming Coach and Technical Aquatics Manager, Swim England, and Matt Newton, Swimming Coach and Swimming Coach Educator).

To compliment the land based programme, the day then concluded in the 50m pool to put theory into practice. A huge thanks to all our fantastic presenters, the beautiful venue, and to the Masters Leadership Group for the ongoing help and support in developing the sport.
