Upminster Open Water Swim Course - Saturday Swim Sessions
Come join the SFT open-water swim group. Gain confidence from regular open-water swims and receive instruction from Dan Bullock and the SFT team of ASA and BTA qualified staff. Our Technique course is a fully coached open water technique session. Our Fitness sessions are suitable for experienced openwater swimmers / triathletes only and will not be coached. SFT athletes will be in the water leading the session but there will be no coach.
New to 2013, we are offering 121 lesson's in open water. This session will need to be pre booked and paid for through our office on 020 7247 2998.
SFT operate three types of Openwater sessions:
Technique is for swimmers who are new or are nervous of open water swimming. This is regardless of your swimming experience
Fitness is for swimmers who have competed in open water. You will need to be able to swim 1k without stopping to swim in the fitness group.
121 is for swimmers who are looking to improve their open water experience. Or anyone with fears of open water. It will be technique based.
