Swimming is a very complex physical activity that puts great demands on strength, endurance, psychological resilience and overall fitness. In sport preparation, the physical activities that help to stimulate the above-mentioned qualities and complement the training accordingly have an irreplaceable role. These include cross-country skiing, which, thanks to similar and even higher levels of difficulty, combined with the prevailing sliding movements that save the joints, is an ideal complementary sport. If you add bonuses such as higher altitude or low temperature movements that invigorate not only the body but also the spirit. The main goal of the training will be to acquaint our swimmers with volumetric and fitness training, fun learning games, relations between children, the opportunity for getting to know each other and reinforce communication skills. And because we really understand cross-country skiing and children’s leisure activities, a lot of fun and knowledge is guaranteed.

Our two children (5 and 8 years old) enjoyed the winter conditioning. Although we were worried that the program would be difficult as a parent, the combination of pool + cross country + exercise in the gym proved to be great. We really appreciate our children becoming acquainted with a new type of movement / sport - that is, with cross-country skiing, and that they really enjoyed it during the 5 days. Not only did they overcome their initial shyness and their original lack of skills, but they departed with a newly-mastered ability that we intend to develop within the family. Both children enjoyed a wealth of choices and great food that compensated for the high physical demands of the sports activities. Last but not least, they strengthened and established new friendships and found their swim idols. We will be happy to participate again.
