Dave- you say it's rubbish, but it's just the names somebody has light hartedly given to the styles of swimming.
The issue with a pool coach, is they will teach a pool stroke, which will not work nearly as well in OW and the 'Swinger' style WILL work well. It's a little like teaching someone to ride a bike on a turbo trainer.
If I could just interject as my "Talking bollocks" alarm is going mental. You don't teach people a style. You teach them according to their style. Which a good coach will do regardless of whether he/she is affiliated with a particular brand of swim school.
