Come and Try Events

Open Water 12

Our Come & Try Open Water events for 2018 were a resounding success! View the photos here, and be on the lookout for more sessions in 2019, or why not take part in a challenge event?

Our Come and Try open water events and adult swim swim series are primarily for adult swimmers who would like to take part in coached sessions. The events are open to all and are fun and informative. Open water swimming is full of adventure and fun - come along and have a go!

Places are limited and are available to book on a first come first served basis. Our Come and Try events are ideal for those with little or no open water experience. We guide and support adults and juniors age 9+ through the whole experience from putting on wetsuits to safety briefings, acclimatisation and expert coaching.

You will learn drafting sighting and swimming technique to build your confidence and skills in open water. We have all the safety supervision you need and it's great fun too!  

Our Open Water Come and Try events also have sessions for juniors as part of our family fun opportunities and allow you to be a bit more adventurous and swim the distance that suits your ability.

District events across Scotland host participation challenge events for those not yet ready for competition but who want to try swimming half mile or a mile. 

We also offer swims of 200m, 400m and 800m at some of our open water festival events for adults and juniors with the option of an Aquathlon organised by Triathlon Scotland.
