We are happy to announce our Friday night coaching sessions (8sessions) will be back on the Friday 5th May 2023 to 23rd June (all Friday nights except Thursday 1st June) at Fell Foot Park,  Lake Windermere, Newby Bridge,  LA12 8NN

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.

This is a group coaching session (block of 8 or 6 sessions) with kayak safety support at Fell Foot Park.  8 sessions = £56 & 6 sessions =£48.

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.

One off sessions are available at £10 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.

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 & 3- Warm up, open water skills session and assigned groups.
