Intro to Open Water

Presented by Swim Coach Suzie Dods


This half day clinic is designed to help the new or experienced triathlete become more comfortable with swimming in open water.  Many women avoid the wonderful sport of triathlon because they’re afraid to swim in open water.  This clinic starts with the basics in a supportive, safe, and non- intimidating small group setting.

Here’s what will be covered in the session;

  • How to prepare before, and how to take care after an open water swim
  • Swimming straight and sighting
  • Swimming safely
  • Hypothermia and preparedness
  • Discussion of our ‘aquatic friends’
  • Tips and drills for training in open water

Prerequisite: Open to all experience levels, but must be able to swim 100yds continuously.  For those not accustomed to swimming in cold water, wetsuits are strongly recommended.

We’ll set up our 2014 clinics as soon as the water warms up a bit!  Drop us an email if you’d like to be added to our mailing list when the schedule is finalized.
