Beginner Open Water


Open Water – Beginners and fearful


2018 3 weeks Saturdays June 9, June 16, June 23

Introduction to open water for new swimmers and the fearful.  Learn to love swimming in the open water as nature intended!  We swim along the shoreline and from dock to dock to get comfortable in a lake.

Swimmers should be comfortable swimming 200m-400m in the pool.  It is recommended to be familiar with the Total Immersion swim program; however, not necessary.  Wetsuit recommended but not necessary. Contact Teresa if you have questions about a wetsuit. Teresa has extra wetsuits for trial

Dryland and equipment instruction 15 minutes

Swim 300-800m – We swim dock to dock or a loop so that longer distance swimmers can continue. Teresa travels on a paddle board speaking to you with underwater headphones.
