 Fell Foot Open Water Friday night Coached session

 SleekerSwim run a weekly Friday night coached session at Fell Foot throughout the summer.

 This is a weekly session every Friday 7pm - 7.45pm, due to the popularity before the GNS swim, we are running a group of five sessions taking swimmers up to the 9th June to the Great North Swim. There will be another 6 week coaching sessions after the GNS starting on the 30th June to the 4th August as the coaches are away attending the British Masters Swimming Champs on Friday 16th and Friday 23rd is our Summer Solstice Starlight Swim at Fell Foot at 10pm

  Swimmers can pay on the night for £6 (but it would be advisable to email a day before to check spaces are left as a large number of swimmers have booked the 5 sessions in advance)


The provisional plan for the next 5 weeks is as follows:


Week 1 - Acclimitization, warm up,  group swimming, basic Open Water skills,


Week 2 - Warm up, open Water skills in group and reps of buoyed course.


Week 3 - Warm up, open Water skills in assigned groups and longer reps (option)


Week 4, Warm up, open Water skills in groups and long swim option with extra buoys put in.


Week 5, Warm up, open Water skills in groups and specific Race Prep for swimmers (option).


There will be another 6 week coaching sessions after the GNS starting on the 30th June to the 4th August.

 It is a group coached session with canoe safety support. It is an ideal session for swimmers wanting to gain confidence for their first open water swim such as the Great North Swim or for regular open water swimmers wanting some open water practice in a group environment.

Please arrive at 6.40pm if it is your first session as, you will need to complete a registration form, once you have completed your PARQ form, this only needs to be done once and will be kept on file for the rest of the summer, you will however need to sign in each week. You will also require a bright hat to swim, and probably advisable to wear a neoprene hat under at the moment if you have one. We do have SleekerSwim bright orange/green hats for sale for a discounted price of just £1.50

If you are very nervous and completely new to open water, it would be advisable to attend one of the Open Water Inroduction sessions with a 1:5 ratio of coach to swimmer, which also includes a theory session. (2.5 hr session)

Wetsuit hire is also available at £10 per hire, but also option of hire for an event and sessions.
