Fell Foot Open Water Friday night Coached session – May 2020.

Due to the Outbreak of COVID-19, in line with the government advice on social distancing to prevent the spread of this virus. The Friday night Open Water sessions with be postponed until late July or August. We will advertise on face book when we can confirm a start date.

This is a group coaching session (block of 5 sessions) with kayak safety support at Fell Foot Park. These sessions are starting in July/August 2020(t.b.c) We have five sessions (£32.50) from the 1st May to 28th May (t.b.c as above). This is an ideal session for anyone looking to get more into open water swimming, but already had some experience either an intro course or similar and with a reasonable confident swimming ability (if you are very novice, it would be advisable to attend one of our Open Water Introduction sessions).

This is a weekly session every Friday 7pm – 7.45/8pm.

One off sessions are available at £8 per session, but you will need to book in advance to ensure there is space.

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

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.

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 1:6 ratio of coach to swimmer, which also includes a theory session. (2.5 hr session).
