These group sessions are aimed at open water swimmers wishing to improve and refine their existing skills. You must be able to swim 400m freestyle continuously and have basic open water skill such as sighting which you can learn in our Open Water Confidence Course.
Each week we refine a skill such as drafting to save energy, mass start tactics and overtaking other swimmers at buoys. We also complete a timed swim over a set distance and analyse your swim data, for actual distance swum, speed and pacing. Did you know most swimmers on average swim 10-20% further than the target distance? Reducing this percentage will boost your swim times in your races more than pure technique work can.
How much does it cost?
We have various payment options to suit your lifestyle:
1. PAYG for £15 just book and turn up when your schedule permits.
2. £100 for ten sessions, can't make a session? No problem, book into another squad so you still get your ten swims in ten weeks.
3. £40 for one Squad session per week or £70 for two per week.
