Total Immersion Swimming

Total Immersion Swimming

YWCA Minneapolis offers Total Immersion (TI) swimming instruction, the best way to master a faster, more fluid and efficient freestyle stroke. Total Immersion swimming has helped thousands of adults and children build swimming knowledge, endurance, speed and confidence. 

What is Total Immersion Swimming?

Total Immersion Swimming is a learning technique using drills and stroke analysis during instructional sessions. TI coaches use above and underwater video equipment to help participants understand their technical strengths and challenges.

 

Total Immersion is for Swimmers of All Abilities, Including:

  • Triathletes and open water swimmers who want to improve speed and endurance
  • Master and competitive swimmers looking for stroke work to reduce the risk of swim injuries
  • New swimmers looking to avoid endless hours without progress
  • Any swimmer who feels they have hit a wall in their training, and wants to improve their stroke and overall form

YWCA Minneapolis is the exclusive provider of this teaching method in Minnesota.
