1-2-1 and Group Open Water Swim Sessions

Join experienced coaches (Level 2 and 3 British Triathlon Coach with multi-sport coaching experience) for 1-2-1 and small group coached open water swim sessions throughout the summer. Each session will focus specifically on a different element of open water or triathlon racing within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Suitable for all abilities. Private lessons have the benefit of being able to focus specifically on your own individual swim training requirements, be that gaining confidence in the water, learning to ‘sight’ or improving your open water swim technique. All swimmers from experienced to novice catered for. Lessons are priced at £45 per session

Further details for 1-2-1 or small group sessions:

Cost – Each session costs from £45 depending on venue and lake charges. Group swims work out cheaper per head but dilute the individual time you get with teh coach

Wetsuits – are required when the water temperature is below 16 degrees Celsius and for all junior swimmers below 21.5 degrees Celsius. We do not have wetsuit hire.

Brightly coloured swim hats are required for everyone at all times.

Junior swimming – Please enquire for which coaches can accommodate for under 16s
