Open Water skills for beginners

The six week open water skills course is designed to give you a thorough introduction to swimming outdoors in a lake so that you feel confident to swim in other open water environments such as the sea and a river. It will be run by experienced and qualified British Triathlon Federation (BTF) and ASA swim coaches.

We will cover how to quickly get to grips with your surroundings, getting acclimatised to colder water, spotting and the different type of starts you can expect in open water in a triathlon race.

We recommend that you can comfortably and competently swim 400m non-stop before considering this course so that you can get the maximum value from the coaching. You will also need a wetsuit.

The entry fee includes bronze membership of Tewkesbury Triathlon Club until 31st December 2018.
