Friday Night Open Water Group Coaching Session

This is a group coaching session with kayak safety support at Fell Foot park. There are five sessions starting on Friday May 11th to the 8th June and is just £30 for five sessions. These have now started, but swimmers can still attend on a Pay as you go basis for £7.50 per session (you will just need to email the day before to check there is space as we have a maximum of 40 swimmers)

This is an ideal session for anyone looking to start open water swimming, with a reasonable confident swimming ability (if you are very novice -it would be advisable to attend one of our Open Water Introduction sessions first).  It is also an ideal session for swimmers wanting to gain confidence in open water swims or for regular open water swimmers wanting some open water practice in a group environment and a great way to get swimming fit.

This is a weekly session every Friday 7pm – 7.45pm. The group will be split in two or three groups of similar ability swimmers with two coaches. We will also be looking at doing another block of sessions from the 29th June after our Summer Solstice Starlight Swim on the 22nd June.

If spaces are available at a session, there will be an option of a pay per swim at £7.50, but you will need to email before the session to check on availability.

The provisional plan for the 5 weeks is  below:

Week 1 – Acclimitization to first Open Water session,  some open water skills depending on water temperture (might be a shortened session due to water temp)

Week 2 – Warm up, open water skills session and assign groups.

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

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

Week 5 – Warm up, open water skills in groups and specific race prep for swimmers (option).

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. We do have SleekerSwim bright orange/green hats for sale for £2.00.
