Advanced Coached Training Session

15 September, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Swimming in open water is an experience that cannot be matched by the average swimming pool.

This course provides a safe, fully qualified and life-guarded technique led session. With the aim of improving open water stroke and adaptability in various open water challenges.

Our sessions are developed around individual training needs to achieve your goals. The session starts with a safety briefing with on-land coaching. Then we will have short acclimatisation swim where we will assess each attendees stroke using Gopro footage. Once we have all had our strokes filmed we will set off on our swim. Once we are dried and changed we will have a viewing session of the Gopro footage over teas and coffees.

This is an ideal group coached session for those who want support in Open Water while training for a set goal, such as: – a distance swim; a triathlon; or personal fitness. Wetsuits, swim caps and tow floats must be worn during our swim

This 1 hour and 30 minute Open Water Swim Coach session includes:-
– Goal assessment & training plans;
– Safety briefing;
– Acclimatisation techniques;
– Stroke assessment with development of sighting techniques;
– Drafting and turns;
– Feeding plans;
– Q&A.

These sessions are £40.00 per session. Wetsuit and Tow float hire is available at a first come first served basis for an additional charge.

Please email to discuss and book.
