Adam Peaty Race Clinics
Learn the art of Breaststroke from the very best of all time! Olympic Champion and 10 Times World Record Holder Adam Peaty is offering to share his secrets.
Between 12 and 16 August 2019, fresh from the 2019 Fina World Championships in Korea, Adam will be presenting his inaugural series of "Adam Peaty Race Clinics" at selected venues in England.
These clinics will provide a unique opportunity to hear Adam's immediate thoughts on his World Championship performance and to learn about how he is preparing to "attack" his Olympic Title in Tokyo next year.
Adam Peaty Race Clinics reflect the reality of life as an International Swimmer, so in addition to the pool work there is a gym session delivered by a British Swimming Strength and Conditioning Coach, a Team Activity and a classroom based presentation.

Breaststroke is a highly technical stroke and perfecting your technique is critical to success in the pool. This is the focus of the pool work. The pool session consists of two parts: "free swimming" - focussing entirely on the stroke - will be led by Adam Peaty and "pullout" - looking at the underwater phase of breaststroke - will be led by Edward Baxter.
The Gym session will be led by British Swimming Loughborough National Centre Strength and Conditioning Coach Rob Norman. Gym work is vital to a swimming programme and as the expert in swimming specific gym work Rob can offer unique insights.
Racing Edge Station
The Racing Edge Station will be led by Rio 2016 Olympian Tim Shuttleworth. This station will be focused around how to get the mental edge when you stand on the blocks, utilising nerves, applying visualisation and other race tactics so you can learn what works for YOU.
Presentation and Q&A
Adam Peaty will be sharing his secrets. You will gain a unique insight into his Gladiator mentality and discover how that enabled him to become Olympic Champion. The day will finish with a short Q&A session giving swimmers and parents the opportunity to pick the brains of the man behind the medals.
As everyone knows Adam needs no introduction! As Olympic Champion, 10 time World Record Holder and multiple World and European Champion, there is no one better to be leading the pool session. Adam is a Level 2 swimming coach.
Ed is Youth Commonwealth Champion, multiple British Champion and Record Holder as well as being English Senior Short Course Champion all over the 200m breaststroke. Ed has trained alongside Adam now for around 4 years and as a swimmer that favours short course he will be leading the breaststroke pull-out station in the pool. Ed is also a qualified swimming teacher.
Rob is the Head of Strength and Conditioning for British Swimming at the Loughborough National Centre. Rob has a huge knowledge of swimming specific Strength and Conditioning and started working for British Swimming in 2017. Rob is going to be leading the gym sessions for the day.
Tim is a 2016 Rio Olympian as well as being a World Championship medallist from 2017. Tim has been apart of the British Swimming Centre in Loughborough alongside Adam and Ed and really values team sprit and making sure everyone works together to achieve their goals. Tim will be leading the Team Activity for the day.
Edmund is a recently retired swimmer but in his career he was a British National medallist in 200m Breaststroke and was a member of the England Talent Programme for many years. Edmund is going to be overseeing the whole day acting as a camp leader.
Harriet is a 3 time Commonwealth Games Semi-finalist from 2018. She is also a multiple British Champion and British Universities Champion. Harriet will be acting as a camp leader throughout the week of clinics along with assisting the Racing Edge station.
Josh is a Photographer / Videographer who has workeci alongside Adam and Ed for nearly a year now, working on other Swim Clinics and also undertaking some larger projects with them.

Spectating and Photography
Parents are welcome to attend and watch the day as it unfolds (where seating availability permits). Although parents are more than welcome to come and watch, we request you don't interact with the swimmers (including your own child) during the day but very specifically while they are at either the swim, gym or team activity station.
Please note photography and filming by spectators is prohibited for child protection purposes. However the shots taken by official Photographer Josh Beech will be available to purchase as digital copies after the event for a very small fee.
