This is a small group session to introduce younger pool swimmers to open water swimming and to give more experienced younger swimmers a chance to improve their open water skills like swimming straight and coping with a little bit of choppy water.

Through friendly enthusiastic instruction and motivating guidance we aim to make these sessions a fun and safe experience. We will not venture too far from the shore and will have in-water swimmers and canoe /boat support to adapt to the response of the swimmers and ensure everyone is safe and has the best opportunity to learn to swim well in open water.

Note: All swimmers must be accompanied by an on-shore parent or guardian.
