This session is aimed at our junior club level swimmers aged 9/10-14 and will teach them all about open water swimming for events, and fun, by following the Swim England Open Water framework. At the end of the course the swimmer will be awarded a level 1, 2 or 3 Swim certificate and badge from Swim England. We hope to get swimmers to at least level 2, last year all swimmers achieved level 3.
Swimmers will learn about safety in the water and sessions will be held from 2-3 different lakes so the swimmers don't get complacent with only swimming in a familiar location.
The sessions will run at 9am or 9:30am (depending on venue) every Tuesday in August, each session will be one hour in length and wetsuits are required, however we will be doing some non wetsuit swimming as part of the sessions (advice on wetsuits? please give me a call).
