Master the Methodology

We have partnered with STA to bring exclusive stoke technique CPDs.

Straight Line Swimming has partnered with the STA to bring a trio of CPD’s which have been created by both Keri-anne and David in line with their unique coaching methodology.

Our CPDs are all online and at just an hour’s length of time, they are the perfect taster or add-on to our courses. Improve your own technique or pass your new-found knowledge on to your students, each one is designed to hone in on a specific skill that will help you to improve your open water swimming style – in an indoor or outdoor swimming environment.

There are three factors to the Straight Line Swimming methodology and therefore 3 individual online CPD’s to take: Breathing, Position and Motion. There is a special offer at the moment with STA offering the CPDs at 50% off. For a limited time only.

The CPD’s


Breathing is the first fundamental when it come to either learning how to swim or improving your freestyle technique. This CPD focuses on how you can get the most out of front crawl using efficient breathing within an open water environment.


The position of your body in the water can make a big difference in swimming effectively in the open water. In this CPD, we look at all parts of the body, from head to toe, and demonstrate the most efficient position for effortless swimming.


It is no secret that how your body moves through the water can impact on your speed and efficiency. This CPD will coach through the physics of your body and how to use it to propel yourself through the water in the best way possible for you.
