We are happy to announce our Friday night coaching sessions are to start back on Friday 6th May at Fell Foot Park, Windermere, Lake Distict.

The session runs from 7- 8pm. Will have 2 or 3 groups within each session. There is a limit of 40 swimmers & spaces filled up very quickly last year so please book a space early.

If we are still required to social distance in May, social distancing will need to be adhered to at all times, including registration, briefing and entering and exiting the water. Due to us being outside and having plenty of room at the beautiful venue of Fell Foot Park, we should all be able to socially distance safely, whilst still enjoying our Open Water Swimming.

We have six sessions from Friday 6th May to and including Friday 10th June – £42 before 7th April, £48 from 8th April.

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 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.

Provisional Agenda:

Week 1 – Acclimatisation to first Open Water session, Introduction & open water skills – work as one group for first session with differentiation for abilities.

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 (optional).

Week 6 – Warm up, open water skills in groups and long swim option with extra buoys or timed swim option

You will also require a bright hat to swim. We do have SleekerSwim bright yellow/pink hats for sale for £3.00
