FooteSteps Coaching Open Water Swim

03 Aug 2021

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

FooteSteps Coaching Open Water Group - Westmill Farm, Ware, Herts

This session is for swimmers wanting to progress the front crawl/freestyle swimming in an open water environment. Sessions are for competent swimmers over 18 years old; juniors aged over 10years old who have experience of open water or who are confident and competent swimmers are welcome following discussion with the coach (a responsible adult must remain on site).  Sessions are weekly in small groups (approx. 8-10), swimmers working in small groups or pairs on the skills most relevant to their ability (within Covid rules). Novices will work on building confidence and open water skills such as sighting with more experienced athletes working on race skills and fitness. The small group size allows for more observation and feedback for all swimmers to give them the best opportunity to improve. If you feel you need more support than a group session can provide, please conact us regarding a 1-2-1 session.

Uncoached swimmers will be able to swim at their own pace around the 400m marked loop.

We will enter the water at 6:00pm so please arrive 10mins earlier to register and change. Sessions will last 45-55mins and everyone has to be out of the water at 7:00pm.

Lake Rules:

Swimmers are required to purchase an RFID wristband for £7.50 before their first swim to track them in/out of the water. These are available for purchase at reception and can then be used for the season. They must also complete a wavier form and under 18's a permission and declaration of competence form.

All Swimmers must wear a brightly coloured swim cap.
