Come and Try 

Coached Sessions at Lochore Meadows, are 1 hour sessions aimed at adults and juniors who can swim but have never swum in open water.  They are also for those who have experience in open water and would benefit from a little reminder, a confidence boost or support with open water swimming technique and skills. 

Why not come along and join like-minded swimmers and be taught by experienced coaches at this great venue.

The sessions will focus on:

·             Wetsuit advice

·             Combating those Open Water anxieties

·             Acclimatisation and feel for the water

·             Open water skills, including sighting and drafting and navigating buoys

·             Group starts and skills practice

·             Breathing effectively in open water for maximum performance

·             Question and answer time
