RegisterFriday Night Open Water Group Coaching Sessions – 10th May to 14th June

Our very popular Friday night sessions are back again for this year 2024 starting on the 10th May to the 14th June (6 sessions) every Friday except Friday 31st May when the session will be Thursday 30th May that week  at Fell Foot Park, Lake Windermere, Newby Bridge, LA12 8NN.

The session runs from 7- 8pm (finish time will be 7.45pm for the first couple of sessions due to the cold temperature). We will have 2 different ability groups within each session.

It is £49.50 for the group of 6 sessions.

These sessions are ideal for swimmers to gain confidence in open water swims or for regular open water swimmers wanting some open water practice in a group session and a great way to get swimming fit.

If you are very nervous and completely new to open water, it would be advisable to attend one of the Open Water Introduction sessions with a 1:4 ratio of coach to swimmer, which also includes a theory session. (2.5 hr session).

 Minimum age is 12, but they must be a club level swimmer & have swum open water before. Please email me if you wish to discuss further or have any questions.

This is a weekly session every Friday ( except Friday 31st May when it is Thursday 30th) 7pm to 8pm. If you can’t attend the block of sessions, there is an option to pay per session ( pre booked online) if there is availability. It is £10 per session.

The group will be split in two or three groups of similar ability swimmers with two coaches.
