STA has partnered and endorsed a trio of new Straight‑Line Swimming CPDs, which have been created by double open water 10 km world champion and silver Olympic medallist Keri-anne Payne and triple Olympian David Carry. Their new Straight‑Line Swimming methodology offers a fresh approach to how swimming is understood, taught and coached.

Keri-anne and David have combined their Olympic experience, explored with leading coaches and scientists, to create Straight‑Line Swimming which focuses on empowering swimmers to learn and own their own swimming development simply and effectively. The ethos is to make the method of swimming from A to B easier, more efficient and—most importantly—more fun.

The three new online CPDs are aimed at swimming teachers, coaches and any swimmer who is keen to improve their technique and learn more about the fundamentals of swimming—in an indoor or outdoor swimming environment.

There are three parts to the Straight‑Line Swimming methodology: breathing, body position and motion, and for each part there is a dedicated online CPD.
