RegisterFriday Night Open Water Group Coaching Sessions – 30th June

We are running our last Friday night session tomorrow 30th June  at Fell Foot Park,  Lake Windermere, Newby Bridge,  LA12 8NN. It is open as an individual session if you haven’t signed up previously for the block of sessions.

The session runs from 7- 8pm. We  will have 2  groups within each session.

One off sessions are available at £10 per session.

These sessions are ideal for swimmers wanting 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 1:5 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 7pm to 8pm.

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